Click here to listen to the Tales From The Shed Part 2 EP By Nigel Hayes, his first EVER nu jazz, lounge, afrobeat, broken beat and chillout release for Intelligent Audio!


nu jazz funk chillout afrobeat broken beat nigel hayes intelligent audio tales from the shed part 2 epIntelligent 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 the dancefloor and in more chilled environments.

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.

If you want to license any Intelligent Audio tracks for ANY reason – and also if you would like to pre order this on vinyl, please contact us.

This is the eclectic  – IA2 side of affairs – and it really allows Nigel to demonstrate his love of using live instrumentation!

Afro Jack is a brilliant, happy, upbeat, funky, afrobeat track, incorporating live bass, guitars, horns and violin into a wicked groove and really infectious track!

Slow Burn is a beautiful phat funky lounge track and needs to be played as loud as possible ;-)

August Night is one of the first tracks we heard from Nigel and we still love it as much now as we did the first time – it’s a brilliant nu jazz, broken beat funky groove.

Last but by no means least, Abusin’ It is just a WICKED funk track – you could play it in a lounge, chillout set – anywhere you like but for us it’s just pure funk and we love it! Check it out for yourself! :-)
