One of house music’s fastest growing names, Niles Shepard, is a duo that needs to top your playlists. The Minneapolis based team has caught the attention of some the genre’s top labels after winning Insomniac’s Discovery Project, and after hearing their new track, “Interlaker,” we promise you’ll be begging to join their herd.
Popping bass and the skittering 4×4 kit keeps the energy on high alert, but the droning low end synths and sinister vocal samples conversely leave listeners in a cemented state of trance. The alien sounding samples that ghost in and out will have your consciousness reeling in all the right ways, and frankly we could go for another 10 minutes of this at least. Thankfully there’s a repeat button.
This titanic tech house tune serves as the lead single from the duo’s Interlaker EP, out now via Slothacid. Let this brutish stomper be your formal introduction to Niles Shephard by streaming “Interlaker” below. Enjoy!
