After years of slaving in the studio, local producer NAIK and resident Cut & Paste digital effects genius, is finally set to unleash his debut album ‘In The Shadow Of Thunder Mountain’ upon us. An exotic blend of psychedelic guitars, twisted samples, booming synths and crunchy beats, this release is set to knock socks straight off.
With foundations in sample based music, this first offering from NAIK takes the musical collage concept one step further. The addition of live instrumentation and progressive song structures has seen Naik forge his way into uncharted territory with this release, developing a unique sound that owes as much to psych-rock as it does to hip-hop.
The album was intricately compiled over a number of years at Naik’s personal studio and then mixed by Heliocentrics producer Mike Burnham, making sure every bit of analogue crunchiness was preserved.
Naik launches ‘In The Shadow of Thunder Mountain’ this Friday [October 9] at The Funk Club [upstairs at The Leederville Hotel]. Support comes from from Assembly Line [live], Ta-ku, and Diger Rokwell [live].
