Part of the Neo Violence takeover


French producer NMSS has been making waves with his lo-fi house for three years now. A mainstay on Neo Violence, he was behind the imprint’s 10th release and has contributed tracks to a number of its compilations. Returning to the label, NMSS has turned in a naughty broken-beat jam alongside French newcomer JJUAN. Heavily influenced by spiritualism and Buddism, many of his projects explore these concepts through sound. This forthcoming digital release, titled Satori, continues this theme.

Alongside this alias, he has also embarked on a journey alongside Wilt as Nebrah, furthering the exploration of break beats, hazy house jams and deep basslines. As a firm favourite here at Watch The Hype, and an instrumental artist on Neo Violence’s roster, he continues this week’s takeover with a selection of tunes that show his diverse taste.

“My theme is tracks that perfectly end a DJ set. Because I like to end my DJ sets with something that contrast with house and techno music.”
