Less Is More EP - Olander (Nous)

Title: Less Is More EP
Artist: O Xander
Label: Nous
Cat Number: US 007
Genre: Deep House

1: Lover’s Theme
2: Jupiter Jam
3: Integrity & Intensity
4: Dirac Sea
5: Dirac Sea (Karen Gwyer Remix)

Buying the latest release from Nous online can be akin to a last minute purchase off Ebay. Thankfully the process is gradually getting easier, and the new label art points to the release surfacing in greater numbers as well. That being said, you still have to be on your toes. In any case, this latest offering, this time from the typically low key O Xander drives the label’s ethos home on fine style. Minimalist, lo fi and fuzzy in all the right places, these five cuts do more for the cause of righteous production values over the course of their existence than most so-called deep house artists do in their careers. My personal fave is the spacey, handclap symphony of ‘Jupiter Jam’, but it’s all good.
