Artist: Nigel Hayes
Title: Takes From The Shed Part 3 & 4
Label: Intelligent Audio (UK)
Style: Tech House / Techno / Funk / Broken Beat
Release Date: 11th October 2011
Just over one year since Nigel Hayes penned the first two volumes of ‘Tales From The Shed’, he now releases parts 3 and 4 on London’s Intelligent Audio. Nigel Hayes original material is extremely rare these days – aside from Intelligent Audio his last dance record came out in 2004, yet he remains one of the most respected players in house and techno. In IA he has found the perfect partner label to reflect his ethos.
In customary IA fashion the release is split into two releases, one focused on House/Techno and the other allowing the artist to explore their full creativity with a more eclectic selection. IA1.6 sees Nigel providing 4 tracks in the Deep/Tech House and Techno genres while IA2.6 is a blend of Afro-Beat, Funk and Broken Beat, with all tracks underpinned by live instrumentation.
