NIGEL HAYES – TALES FROM THE SHED PART 1 EP – Released: August 2010 – IA1.4
Intelligent Audio is proud to present the first original solo material from Nigel Hayes in over 5 years.
Nigel Hayes’ last outings were the critically acclaimed albums ‘….but is it art?’ and ‘it’s your move’ on Sunshine Recordings from Vienna. Both LPs incorporated complex arrangements, featuring numerous live musicians, skillfully blended with Nigel’s ear for electronica and what works equally well on and off the dancefloor.
After taking some time out following the albums, Nigel engaged in some remix work including going head to head with Tom Middleton on two monster remixes of Francois DuBois’ ‘Blood’ for Urban Torque – a release which became one of the biggest dancefloor rockers of 2006. He has also remixed Motivators, Funkanala and Jobu for the much respected Here and Now Recordings as well as Ibile & Ade Sose for Bitches Brew, taking Afro-Beat in a new direction.
This release is IA1 – our deep tech house side – and Nigel Hayes rocks it for us here, with 4 deep house grooves – old school sound, and deliberate old school production – sure to rock any dancefloor – and they are infectious…
Check them out for yourself and please share this with other like minded people …
*Yeah – there’s a lot of it – you all gave it to us – THANK YOU EVERYONE FOR THE SUPPORT so please spare a few moments to show Nigel Hayes some respect and see why he is still one of the most highly regarded nu jazz and lounge producers in the electronic music scene today… and more importantly… please share this page, spread the word, and go and buy the music and support this and any other artist you like :-

Al Bradley: 3am Recordings/Chemical Warfare/Bugged Out, Manchester: Amazing! ‘Deep September’ is absolutely glorious, house music in its finest form! No fuss, all about the bass, keys & percussion, outstanding! Likewise with’Will I Won’t I’, just superb warm house music, full of hypnotic grooves. ‘Late’ reminds me of the old warm-up vibes at the Hacienda in Manchester – the highest compliment I can give! Lush and warm, fantastically deep. Finally ‘Open Fire’ toughens things up, but again retaining the depth. What a brilliant EP!
