Cellar, the second solo EP from NA (Daniel Pineda of Nguzunguzu) on Fade to Mind, is a kinetic and brooding journey through the ominous side of club music, a personal vision of dystopia and angst. With 5 tracks that showcase NA’s wide-ranging musical influences, the record provides a personal manifesto for Pineda’s vision of club music for darker times. Texturally, all tracks on Cellar are drawn together by aggressive metallic manipulations, crisp percussion and devastating low-end. Highlighting NA’s technical skills as a producer, there is a careful balance between distortion and direct sound, resulting in highly atmospheric yet club-ready experiments.

The dynamic L.A. duo of Asma Maroof and Daniel Pineda return with their second EP for Fade to Mind. Fresh off the release of NA’s solo debut Xtreme Tremble and three standout productions on Kelela’s CUT 4 ME mixtape, NGUZUNGUZU deliver a collection of seven bio-mechanically engineered heavy-hitting club experiments.

Enter the paranoid universe of Skycell; a game you don’t know your playing, a hostile environment where your mind takes a vacation, but your body is in a cage. The songs of Skycell are built from air bursts, glimmering chimes, sunken bass, metallic scrapes, and industrial crashes. As the tension looms you begin to realize you are in an elevated jail cell with no bars, where your only escape is to free fall to your demise.

Cinematic intro “Foam Feathers” is a deceivingly innocent elevator ride to the top of the skycell, followed by “Harp Bell”’s insistent claps, galloping kicks, and hypnotic chimes. “Break In” also uses the combination of deep 808 kicks and an ominous bell melody set off by high energy hi hats. “Tumultuous” and “Mecha” fill out the B-side of the EP with grimey mechanical percussion and densely layered samples over club kicks.

The music world has come to celebrate NGUZUNGUZU for their evocatively singular productions, but before the release of their Skycell EP on Fade to Mind later this fall, NA (aka Daniel Pineda aka 1/2 of Nguzunguzu) sets the stage with his solo debut XTREME TREMBLE, a trilogy of pared-down, hard-hitting, sub-testing club tracks built to annihilate.
