Ovum's 20th birthday celebrations continue with the return of Nico Lahs"! It has been three years since Nico Lahs debuted on Ovum Recordings with his 'Clouded Visions' EP. Nico has displayed a talent for creating beautiful deep soundscapes. In his return to Ovum for his third release, we see a matured Nico, but there is a rawness that remains that make his tracks so special. He has kept busy when not releasing on Ovum with releases on Pokerflat, 8 Bit, and Last Night On Earth. The A side track 'Tension' shows a heavier side of Nico's music. The track though driving still keeps an element of deepness. This is a great journey track that makes you want to close your eyes and get lost in the groove. For the B side, Nico delivers the title track 'Absence". This is classic Nico as he dives more into his deeper side. The track twists and turns taking you on a beautiful ride. Two incredible soundscapes from Nico and we are glad to have him return to the roster!
