My first EP as Nasty Nachos, The Getaway is officially live!
The Getaway is a collection of 6 songs that were mostly written while on vacation or away from home in one way or another. I took my laptop with me on a trip to Norway and wrote the instrumentals for most of the tracks.
I then brought the files home with me and continued to re-track the synths and drums with my collection of vintage and modular synthesizers here in Denver, Colorado. I also recorded the vocals at home.
The final touches were put on at a synthesizer focused studio in Los Angeles called Rosen Sound. Overall there are probably around 25+ synths on the record. My perfect idea of a vacation.
The EP is meant as an escapist journey and to give you a bit of my vacation vibes while you go about your day.
I nearly wore this tape out in 2020 digging into the hazy mix of melodies and expansive modular soundscapes. Looking forward to what comes next for this project, especially considering how well Aqeel uses modular synthesis to create his own voice in electronica. Jeff Haight
