Ever so happy to launch this blog into life with a remix made by Nadav Ravid AKA NDV, probably the main source of musical inspiration for me for many many years. Nadav has been broadcasting the only show in mainstream Israeli radio to feature up to date serious electronics and much more. He is also half of the killer duo Polar Pair (together with Malkiel Grossman) who we should be hearing some new (HOT!) stuff coming from soon enough. Besides that, for more than a year now he has been co-heading the Botanika label alongside Amir Egozy, a forward thinking label that’s slowly but steadily releasing quality beats and steps from local producers.
Oxygen is the latest release from the Botanika family, featuring Jerusalem’s own Itzik Finley AKA Bunny On Acid’s second venture with the label. It features two tracks with Bunny On Acid’s quirky dreamy lush synthed post-dubstep, plus the title track as remixed by NDV, who takes Oxygen and steps it up way more than a notch with some 2stepped funky beats. Nadav has really been on top of his game lately, and this remix is no different. Big up!
Here’s a couple more I’ve been really feeling by NDV lately - Look At The Stars, released a few weeks back on Bonzzaj Records, and the beautiful unreleased Escape From The City Of Joy Pt. 2
