Here at Nang towers we’re really happy to have back Slovenian talent Sare Havlicek, without any doubt one of our favourite producers, and to present you all his latest creation ‘Movies For Lovers’.
Sometimes we like to try something a bit different. Often the process of creating an album can be a not-so-simple task: which tracks are the singles? Which is the “breather” track? Do we have ten songs? Have we covered all the bases? The list goes on. Sometimes the answer is to throw convention out the window and just try to harness a burst of energy and get it down on eighteen minutes-a-side of vinyl.
We gave Sare the following brief: lock yourself in a studio for four weeks and come up with a piece of cohesive work. Abandon the formulas, do some experimenting and (most importantly) try some things you wouldn’t normally do. “Movies For Lovers” is the result of that session and encapsulates the feeling of the journey Sare embarked on to bring you this album.
Things start slow and soulful with Sare in night mode– slow rhythms fusing with primal-sounding melodies. Next up, ‘Magnetic Past’ provides some full on space-disco attitude. This one is built to damage any light-up dancefloor with its rolling groove and uplifting vibes. Following this is ‘Chaser’, a funky head-shaker of a track with 70’s Disco keyboards and basslines to rival those of Chic. We close the first side of the vinyl with ‘Paint The Town’; a loved up track driven by a melodic bass and soulful but electronically moody vocals by OD Hunte.
Flip the vinyl over for ‘Pure Sin’, a teasing, deep club excursion. Italo Disco synths with smouldering sexy groove. Next is a sneaky cover version of Alison Moyet’s ‘Nobody’s Diary’. Think 80's anthem with Mitja’s soulful voice resulting in something infinitely funkier. The cheeky title alone ‘I Love Your Legs’ gives us a hint of the disco-sleaze expected in the penultimate number: here Sare melds funky bassline with soulful, inspiring melodies. The album closes with the atmospheric and ambient ‘Principle 122’ – an experimental dreamy cut which fits perfectly with the idea of the journey that ‘Movies For Lovers LP’ is crafted with.
