Obas Nenor – Candies (Original Mix) [Masterworks Music]

* Turn your mobile device horizontally if you do not see the SoundCloud player or CLICK HERE.

Kicking off the new year with a big splash is Tel Aviv based producer and wearer of many hats, Obas Nenor. This unique and exquisite artist has been featured on countless of top tier labels like Defected, Heist Recordings, Strictly Rhythm, Mahogani and Whiskey Disco (as one half of the duo, Rabo & Snob). His current solo venture lands him the latest installment of the illustrious, 10″ vinyl-only “The Master’s Series” from UK-based label, Masterworks Music.

“Candies” handles the B-Side effort of this special little disc but, just cause it’s on the flipside should in no way convey that it’s throw-away…on the contrary. A bubbly synth line opens up the scene with a rocksteady, disco beat chugging just below the surface. Funky, moog-basslines and cooing vocal samples build the tension creating a balanced and hypnotic framework for chunky guitar and Blaxploitation-esque clavinet riffs.
