Chapeau Music is glad to present this first limited vinyl release from Niceteed entitled “Nothing But Pain EP“. An harsh and obscure record wrapped by hard and uncompromising dancefloor-oriented raw grooves with punchy low ends.
The title track Nothing But Pain shows the sound evolution that Niceteed is taking and opens the label to new music styles. Huge rounded kick, violent sub bass, warm n’ dirty groove elements absorbed inside the reverberated synth stab and an epic shrill vocal. A track which belongs in the peak-moment of every secret Rave.
On the 2nd track, we get a cool Tech-oriented remix from the Irish talent Josh Coakley. Everything collides into a terrific A-side.
CHAPEAU001 is supported by Elli Acula, Subradeon, Anfisa Letyago, Marco Faraone, Gene Richards Jr, Michel De Hey, Josep Capriatti, Ilario Alicante, Drumcomplex and Paco Osuna.
The flip side opens with Leben, a tribute track for the crew that Niceteed is part of in his hometown. Here the fast and heavy kick drum hugs the rhythmic components, gritty hi-hats and claps. Everything settles down on the straight and impact synth stabs line. In the breaks the doubled high-pitched vocal completely captures the attention. Then the kick drum restores the late-night techno mood, literally surfing on the distorted 909 rides.
The track Ketama Aurea introduces us in the darkest part of this record, a gloomier zone that perfectly fits the end of this EP. Over the saturated groove and the baggy kick drum everything is under the hypnosis of the tangled synth melodies. Their sounds are intertwined in the mix like arms of ravers in the murkiest warehouse party. In the breaks the melancholic and significant vocals is followed by the warm bassline that stands out in an impressive way.

Lastly, Niceteed added:
“This EP means a lot for me and for the label. I have dreamed for a long time to release a vinyl on Chapeau and It’s hard to say how happy I am about this achievement. During this difficult moths for the scene I had enough time to think and to concentrate about what I want to do and the direction I want to take, It was a very deep inner process. This vinyl styles perfectly represents what I want to play out, I feel the overall production workflow and my production approach was more spontaneous and less thoughtful on these tracks”
