Australian producer/singer/songwriter Harry Nathan is back this week with a slow burning lo-fihouse treat entitled “Sweet Release”. The single is the first taste of his upcoming sophomore EP and is a delightfully feel good song that blends soulful lyricism and a deep burning house influence within the instrumentation, which can be traced right back to Harry Nathan’s roots in his youth as an up and coming DJ with wide ranging genre tastes. Listen to “Sweet Release” below now and read a quote from Harry Nathan above that!
“This single is the first from my new lo-fi house project. It’s about a psychedelic relationship. I loved house music growing up and have always been a fan of soul and disco. When I was 14, I wanted to mix like Roger Sanchez but couldn’t afford DJ gear, so I cross-wired three stereos to practice mixing. If I needed to slow one down, I would press pause twice really quickly. When I got a regular gig as a wedding DJ, I was stoked just to use better gear and change the pitch. We had a little wedding consortium with some DJ friends from high school, but we were all really crazy about old-schoolhouse. When the bride and groom left, our friends would come and drink the leftover wedding booze whilst we went back to back mixing house classics.” – Harry Nathan
