||After making waves a few years back via his Potatohead People project
(with AstroLogical) and co-producing Illa J’s critically acclaimed self titled
LP, Vancouver based playboy & producer Nick Wisdom steps out from
behind the boards to deliver his first solo release for Bastard Jazz.
The “Intimate Strangers” EP mines deep into Nick’s proclivities for
disco, hip-hop, and house flavours. “Good Times” kicks things off with a
snapping four on the floor, deep Rhodes chords and a rollicking bassline
and vocals courtesy of Mr. Wisdom himself. “Feelin’ Alright” heads into
outerspace disco territory with cosmic synths, walking bass, and sultry
vocals courtesy of Reva Devito (HW&W, Kaytranada). On the flipside
“Don’t Tell” brings in some 80s boogie vibes with downlow vocals from
San Francisco’s K-Maxx, while “Rock The Cash Bar” is an instrumental
party rocking hip-hop jam sounding like a modern day Showbiz & AG.
