FRESH: ‘Soul’s Matter’ – Nuage featuring Omfeel

Nuage says “Soul’s Matter”

Russian DJ and producer Dmitry Kuzmin goes by the name of Nuage and has been releasing material for ten years. His new single, “Soul’s Matter”, is another taster of his upcoming fifth album, “Our Language” and follows this year’s releases “Memory Pattern” and “Romantic OD”. The song is, for the most part, a low key dance instrumental track with pianist Omfeel intertwining with the beats and keyboard hook.

Nuage says of the song: “’Soul’s Matter’ was written under the influence of breakbeats, jungle and 2step, all those 90’s inspired things. I picked a rhode sample from some jungle oneshots library, and built a rhythm around with that powerful kick. The rhythm was based on a breakbeat loop, then I asked Omfeel to play around this stab and as a result, we had a long piano chords and a few short cuts, which I shortened even further by making slices. I also took the vocals from some soul acapella, there are two of acapellas here, one is very preciselly chopped and works like a rhythm, and the second sounds like an atmospheric theme that adds space and eu-phoria to the track. The final one turned out into laidback and dancefloor at the same time, it sounds especially good at the be-ginning of the party, when people are just starting to get together and they excited what will be happened next”.

“One Language” will be his first collective since his 2017 album, “Wild”. Hailing from St. Petersburg, Nuage released his EP “Nuage Presents: Longest Hour” last year which featured the track “There’s No End In The Beginning” in both original and acoustic form. For this new collection, Nuage has teamed with with some very talented artists from around the world including Brooklyn based producer Baile on “Memory Pattern” and fellow Russian artist Bop on “Romantic OD”, which also features the vocals of Omfeel one again. “Romantic OD” was released as a four track EP with a darker, deeper beat soundtrack. The new album is shaping up to be another fine collection with “Soul’s Matter” a poignant and intricate feature at its heart.

So perhaps you’ve read an article or two that I’ve written and wondered “just who is this character?”! Well I thought maybe it would be time to introduce myself and what I’m all about. Well it’s all about the music! Having been born in the late 1970’s I was heavily influenced by my parent’s love of ‘popular’ music and rock and roll of the 1950’s and 60’s. My Mother always said she should of married Elvis and my father was, and is still, in love with Sandie Shaw! But while my Dad’s tastes stopped in about 1967, my Mum carried on loving music throughout the 70’s, 80’s and beyond. My first memory was playing on the floor whilst my Mother was ironing one day with the radio on, and hearing ABBA’s “Super Trouper” dancing my nappy off to it! Maybe that’s where it all went wrong…?! Having been subjected to all and sundry in my infant years, I finally found my feet in the mid-1980’s and began ‘partying’ to the likes of Culture Club, Stevie Wonder(!), Elkie Brooks and Bananarama to name but a few! The year 1987 would have a profound effect on my listening tastes and from thereon in my life would be dominated with buying and listening to music. Any number of outstanding songs were released and listened to that year, most notably “Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now”, “I Wanna Dance With Somebody” and “La Isla Bonita”. That Summer my mind was completely taken over with music and sounds I’d never heard before and I was totally taken in by it all. My father would say “whaaar rubbish you got on naaaaao?” (I’m from Norfolk!) but I was hooked. And it continued so for the rest of the decade and the next. At the beginning of 1988 I ‘met’ my true love and the singer I’ve worshipped more than any other artist or group. You may know of her. She’s from Australia…! Aside from pop music, my tastes are many and varied and continues to grow and expand as I ‘mature’ in age. I’ve always been heavily interested in films and in particular the mechanics of film making and of course film music, so scores and subsequently orchestral music takes up a lot of my tastes and collection. 90’s dance and club tunes also takes up much of the space in my head and I’m surprised my brain has stopped shaking from the years of abuse it took being dragged to nightclubs, often three times a week in my 20’s! I find with each year that passes I regress back to my youth and of course the 1980’s. 80’s music dominates and the lust to see as many 80’s acts and singers play live now is insatiable. I’m still getting into the groove as much as every breath I take, but I’m never gonna give up listening to my heart and pumping up the volume, simply because I LOVE MUSIC…any kind of music!
