Premiere: Nachtbraker ‘You Can’t Run’

Heist and Dirt Crew regular Nachtbraker readies his debut LP on his own Quartet Series label. ‘You Can’t Run’ is a fast-paced, murky tumble into classic deep house…

Nachtbraker’s consistency precedes him. With a steady stream of releases on revered labels such as Heist and Dirt Crew in the past few years, the Amsterdam-based DJ/producer has honed a style that merges deep, smoky house with everything from hip-hop and downtempo to jungle and breakbeat.

Now, he is readying the release of his debut album on his very own Quartet Series imprint. Set for release on 1st October, The Big Lebowski referencing ‘When You Find A Stranger In The Alps’ is a 13-track trip that showcases the breadth of his techniques. Rich in tongue-in-cheek sampling, atmospheric jams, heady house grooves and wavy interludes, this is an album worth savouring and sitting down with.

‘You Can’t Run’ lands around the halfway mark and is a fast-paced, murky cut that tumbles about clumsily on a deep house template. Described as featuring “drunken chords over a sober beat, conjuring up visions of running circles in a dark maze,” this track showcases the producer’s sense of humour while remaining totally club friendly.
