A proud Nuno dos Santos walked into our offices last Friday dropping of a pile of his own records. This proud vibe quickly to the rest of us. 'Hamming' is the first real solo EP by Nuno dos Santos and it's available digitally and on vinyl since the 7th of May 2012.
Nuno dos Santos never released a solo production like the 'Hamming' EP before. His album 'After Dark My Sweet' was a collaboration with TJ Kong, with whom he released more records over the years. With the 'Hamming' EP Nuno dos Santos created his own mile-stone as a producer and he did a very good job at it we must say. Nuno had friend, colleague and top producer Donato Dozzy make a remix for Hamming. Dozzy made a very deep track from the melodic techno sounding original, a sound very familiar for Nuno's productions. On the B-side of this release you'll find the grooving 'Otill part 2'.
Hamming's artwork is done by the legendary Dutch graffiti artist Delta. Delta made a huge wall out of old wood and placed this in De Verdieping (the downstairs floor of Trouw). Nuno made a picture of a small piece of this piece and had this picture edited into what is now the sleeve of his EP.
Different artists already had a preview of the three tracks and the reactions were very positive. Here's a small selection of these reactions:
Ivan Smagghe – “Amazing club… Great Label… excellent release!!”
