Best track of the week: Martin Waslewski – Gerd [Mother Recordings]

Martin Waslewski - Gerd

How many records release during the last 20 years sample the one and only and always so inspiring Nina Simone? The new Gerd by Martin Waslewski is definitely one of top 5 ones. With smooth, percussion driven build up right into the characteristic Sinnerman hook. Especially when the breaks actually breaks all the way down into a long freestyle piano piece backed up by claps and high-hats chorus. It’s epic.

Nhan Solo’s Mother recordings keeps impressing, release after release.
