Niko – Electric Union

£7.00£30.00

Niko’s Electric Union is a late-night, electrasonic long player coming soon on ATIC Records. The all new third album from the Seattle born singer sees her pursuing a more focussed dance lounge sound where delicate melodies and accomplished song writing marry with tuff, unpolished beats, gritty synth bass and layers of abstract keyboards. Drawing from a pot of jazz, soul, underground house, breakbeat and electro pop, a lot of ground is covered by Electric Union’s nine songs with Niko lamenting a love lost in ‘You Used To Have Her’ over a heavy rave breakbeat before getting all Sade on the album’s title track.  The only cover on the album is Niko’s lush take on the previously unreleased ‘I Love TV’ whose writers include Alex Miller of The Upper Room and Neil Barnes of Leftfield. Electric Union was produced and mixed by Aim (Cold Water Music, Hinterland) at his own Speed Limit facility where he also made the brews and chipped in a bit here and there with song writing.

 

‘With Electric Union we go from Ulysses to Alice in Wonderland… A dazzling drug… the best dance music album of the last twenty years’ Sun Burns Out

The feel good factor is off the scale, so much fun, it’s a sweet slice of escapism that gives you a yearning to get to the nearest dancefloor and lose yourself’ Backseat Mafia

‘An enhanced listening experience in combination with enigmatic sounds that can transport you back in time…get blown away by Niko’s timeless style of electronic music woven upon abstract Pop sensibilities’Electro Wow

‘An electronic alliance that explores the deepest paths of psychedelia and the most intense rhythms…This work sounds like the complexity of the mind and the spirit of the author… masterfully alternating each genre and leaving the labyrinth knowing that…the journey has been worth it.‘ – Como Las Grecas

To feel the Electric Union is feel the sparks of love, it may be a groove you are unfamiliar with, but it soon becomes hardwired into the system, and one to which Niko is a modern classic conductor.” – Liverpool sound & Vision

“Electric Union certainly brings a lot to the table, with a track to suit all manner of moods. Whether you feel like chilling out with something in the background or ramping up the energy and getting ready for a night out, this record is guaranteed to please.” – Vinyl Chapters
