Hailing from Bari, Nico Lahs has become a beloved member of the Stock5 family. On the latest instalment of the label that guy blesses us with his Runway EP. But don’t mix up the title with some anorexic chicks that stumble along the catwalk Heidi Klum sent ‘em on. If there is one direction, it would lead straight into a planetary orbit.
The opener “Shreder” sets the pace and mood, a decent composition of pulsating synths, a vibrating bass line and a whispering voice, telling us to fasten our seatbelt because our next stop is going to be “Orion”. Actually this is in one of the biggest astral objects having been discovered yet. Nico takes us there on his spaced out trip, while we are watching stars being born and dying in super novas.
On the flip we’re finally approaching “Runway” the title track. Dive into a world that is undiscovered, promising and overwhelming.
All in all this EP is way more than “Mystic”, which is the last track. We left our planet as humans and we landed as androids in Stock5 galaxy, which is ever expanding, crossing boundaries and creating new life on the universal dance floor.
