An album laced with diversity, ‘Little L’ – one of the production’s stand-out tracks – acts as a partnership with one of the hottest new names in the scene, Eagles & Butterflies, to explore a variety of experimental soundscapes, focusing on a deep and dark build, with elongated horn sounds. The track offers an emotive approach that can also be found in the wonderfully melodic ‘Twisted.’
Nic teams up with longtime friend and co-producer Guy Gerber on ‘The Perfect Crime.’ The track takes on a chord-led mystical feel thanks to the Israeli DJ, best known for his Ibiza-based RUMORS parties, lacing the production with his well famed effortless blend of melancholy and euphoria.
Collaborations have certainly been a recurrent theme throughout Nic’s career and ‘My Heart’ is an illustrious presentation of guest collaborators, with ‘Wrong’ featuring long-time friend Agoria and electro vocalist JAW.
‘My Heart’ also features team-ups with Audion and Kanye West collaborator CONSTANCE, who provides the vocals for ‘The Light ” whilst one of the early Chicago house music pioneers Jamie Principle lends his hand to ’100mph’.
“I love collaborating – it really gives you an opportunity to explore the different aspects of artistry and create something totally unique,” says Nic. “Feeding off each others energy, whether it’s in the studio or remotely, is part of what makes collaborating so much fun; it’s the same with back-to-back sets. I worked with a lot of really talented people on this album – from mix engineers to vocalists, producers to designers – and each and every one of them has left their own stamp on the project”
Mastered by Grazz, who has previously mastered works for the likes of Bob Marley & The Wailers, Joy Division, Björk, Four Tet, Moodyman, and Shura, ‘My Heart’ is also mixed by fellow Grammy-nominated DJ Martin Buttrich, Alex Tepper and Nathan Boddy.
