NICK HOOK – Lunatic Earth EP on Jeepers! Music
‘Asylum Earth’ / ‘Lunatics Reprise’
with Martin Sharp and Tim Nice remixes
JEEPERS! proudly presents the LUNATIC EARTH EP by NICK HOOK. The EP features two tracks – ‘Asylum Earth’ and ‘Lunatics Reprise’ – that decry the madness of the people who run our planet, and are taken from Nick’s debut album, also called ‘Asylum Earth’.
The album’s title track comes with two awesome remixes from top producers MARTIN SHARP and TIM NICE, plus a new club mix from Nick.
A chunky house track with a heavy twist of reggae, ‘Asylum Earth’ also features a dub bass line, jangly old-school piano riff and that vocal hook: the lunatics have taken over the asylum.
Both remixes are top class, with Martin Sharp’s mix adding a ‘bad man’ break-beat and plenty of reggae dub FX, while Tim Nice’s mix adds a dirty jackin’ house groove with an additional vocal hook.
‘Lunatics Reprise’ is a deep and dark ambient track that uses the same vocal hook as ‘Asylum Earth’, but keeps the vibe mellow and atmospheric.
This is an EP that doesn’t just make you want to dance – it also compels you to think about the lunacy of the people who control planet Earth.
Available from BEATPORT, TRAXSOURCE, JUNO DOWNLOAD, SPOTIFY, APPLE MUSIC and all good download and streaming sites.
