Multi-instrumentalist Words Of Nio aka Yul Gomez makes music that blurs the boundaries between the physical and emotional realms. The Spanish artist has been doing so for the last five or so years on the likes of Renaisssance, Wood, Humans and DNC Limited. His latest release is the majestic Cold Shoulder on Get Physical: seven sublime minutes of progressive, spiritual house music. The tension in the synths keeps you locked in while lithe grooves unfold below. The emotive vocals are filled with pain and yet are beautifully delicate and mysterious…
Here he presents his Back To Mine picks, exclusively for DMCWORLD…
Massive Attack – Teardrop
This track is elegant, mysterious, and dark at the same time. I found myself listening to it day and night, it fits every occasion.
Björk – it’s in our hands
I call this a beautiful disturbing symphony, where Bjork’s angelic vocals intertwine with the glitchy programming, which makes it a never-ending fresh sound.
Underworld – Born Slippy
A story that has ended but will always be present! That’s how I feel when I listened to this masterpiece. Easily one of the biggest influences on me.
Depeche Mode – Walking In My Shoes
The seriousness of this song really made an impact on me that has lasted for a very long time! It gives me strength.
Thievery Corporation – Un Simple Histoire (A Simple History)
A smooth ride through your senses, soothing vocals along with the lovely groove.
Sasha – Magnetic North
This is really a track that can keep you going for hours if needed so. It’s just a feel at peace track, everything would be alright. No resistance, just particles of energy moving.
Talvin Singh – One
This is a track with a lot of contrast, Talvin Singh is such a creative mind. The drum and bass groove, the vocal delays!!! This is such a great trip to be part of. It is a phenomenal mood setter.
Cubicolor – No Dancers (Adam Port Remix)
This is so captivating to me! It just feels right. It captures that pretty deep state of loneliness along with a sense of letting go.
Avus – Real
This track has that minimal approach with a subtle house touch, that can really capture all your senses.
Mind Against – Polarstern
A raw, dirty, and mental odyssey! When I first heard it, I was like, Ummhh what is this?
