Niels Broos

Niels Broos – EP

(Alpha Pup Records)

Release date: Feb 24, 2017

As a recent Red Bull Music Academy alum and an accomplished keyboardist from the Netherlands, Niels Broos has worked with a level of tenacity and openness that’s created many fruitful opportunities. In 2017 he signed with Los Angeles based indie label Alpha Pup Records for the release of the Niels Broos EP. The new album serves as his first solo title and collects music recorded over the last two years. The writing process initiated in the beginning of 2015 after relocating to the city of Utrecht, serving as the score to a transitional and important time of his life. He also brought along Brainfeeder’s Jameszoo for these recordings, adding to the body of work they laid out on Jameszoo’s debut album Fool.

The Niels Broos EP is made of four intricately constructed voyages into the electronic spectrum, pushing experimental boundaries with taste and beauty intact. The entire works sprawl with an endless array of sound to process in both harmonic and rhythmic terms, hinting towards many roads of the past, present and future. Sheets of colorfully drawn out synths are found in every seam possible, showcasing how detail oriented he is as a songwriter. There’s something new to find on every spin, suitable for the headphone experience to unleash the full range of layering within.
