Jero Nougues – The Traveler EP

April 12, 2014 in Singles

Jero Nougues The Traveler 5 And DimeTwo tracks in a total of five mixes make up this latest EP from Denver-based 5 And Dime Recordings.

Argentina’s Jero Nougues is the man at the controls. His first original, In My Mind, is a laidback deep house groove with a spoken male “let me tell you why you’re here” vocal atop lush, lazy keys. Fellow Argentinian Nacho Riveros’s remix is quite similar, but has slightly tuffer drums and some wibbly synths that’d make this the pick for afterhours play, while Tom Lown’s rub is the deepest and most stripped-back of the three. Nougues’ other original is 2am, again a fairly mellow cut that chugs along nicely accompanied by crowd noise and whooshy synths, while finally the Portofino Sunrise mix of the same is an even more mellow variation on the same theme.

Nice gentle vibes all round, but it’s Tom’s rub of In My Mind that takes the gold for me here.
