Get To Know: My Nu Leng | Playing Vancouver’s New Best Weekly: Life Musik on Oct. 31

If you’re having a minor melt-down trying to sort out what you’re going to do this Halloween in VanCity, you should probably get your act together and head down to Timbre Concert’s new weekly, Life Musik, featuring Vancouver’s best resident DJs and a constant rotation of the top electronic acts from around the globe. What’s on the menu for Halloween? The Bristol based duo My Nu Leng, whose sound is hard-to-categorize and runs the gauntlet of pitch shifted vocals and heavy bass rumbles. All we know is that it’s vibey as hell and get ready to dance.
A core part of the Black Butter crew (with notable members such as Gorgon City, Kidnap Kid and Tink to name a few), My Nu Leng have two releases on the label. Garnering strong support and attention from these, the duo have go one to produce a slew of high rolling remixes for the likes of UK No.1 “La La La” by Naughty Boy, the summer smash “Right Here” by Rudimental, and the wildly popular “Mozart’s House” by Black Butter family friends Clean Bandit.

My Nu Leng‘s previous releases “Time Goes By”, on MindStep Music, and “Damp” EP on Lo-Note UK both exhibit a penchant for dark and moody music that re-imagines garage influences in fresh and exciting ways. Others include “The Grid” b/w “Hips & Thighs” on 877 Records which deals with more heavyweight rhythms, scuttling textures and solid 4/4 beats. Finished with a subtle vocal it’s been raved about by press and punters alike, ensuring the pair’s rise will continue throughout the year.

When My Nu Leng and Taiki & NUlight get in the studio together, the results are always unpredictable. Recently featured on Black Butter’s Spread Love Vol.3 compilation, the duo delivered two tracks ‘No.2‘ and ‘Reset‘ last year, showcasing a balanced blend of styles that summed up the burgeoning underground sound of 2013.

‘Reset‘ premiered on Mixmag and garnered massive support from Laurent Garnier, Jaguar Skillz, Justin Martin, Huxley, DJ EZ and Dimitri from Paris. Now the London duo are set to release their third EP ‘Masterplan‘ for Black Butter Records on February 17th, following their remix of UK No.1 Klangkarussel, clocking over a million views on YouTube.With further support coming from tastemakers including Mistajam, Zane Lowe, Rob Da Bank, Cameo and more, My Nu Leng build on their crash into the public consciousness with a mix of hollow styled synths, infectious bass lines and the vocal talents of Dub Phizix collaborator Fox.

With numerous gigs confirmed across the UK including Fabric, Motion & Snowbombing in Austria, Tommy & Jammo are following in fellow BB Records duo Gorgon City to make 2014 a breakthrough year.
