NETTLE gutted (mehmet irdel remix) [SPAIN]
NETTLE is, to all intents and purposes, tigerbeat recording artist DJ RUPTURE (also part of the project is graphic artist DD). whilst rupture’s releases usually stride top quality breakcore, nettle sees him on a different trip, taking in north african / middle eastern influences, beautifully exemplified by this mp3 remixed by mehmet irdel. it’s broken and disjointed, starting with a couple of minutes of hand claps and percussion, bringing a downbeat halfway through, before drifting off into some beautiful glitch at the end. much like egyptian-born mutamassik, if anyone degrades ‘world music’, play them this and watch their reaction.
