Over the last few years, Harry Nathan has become something of an underground darling to the lofi house music scene. With an undeniable signature production aesthetic that continues to deliver luxurious mixes, this Australian producer, singer, songwriter & DJ strikes again — in a collaboration with Angus1.
We've written about Harry many times (here, here, and here). He continues to impress with a quirky yet nostalgic take on lush lofi house and disco. "I'm in Need" finds Nathan exploring his eclectic sensibilities, with a nod to alternative genres like Bedroom Pop and UK Garage as a complement to his house and disco bona fides. With lyrics that hint at a nostalgic sense of romantic self-exploration, Harry Nathan — with collaborator Angus1 — pinpoints the moment of realization that all things are possible at the same time that we acknowledge the gravity of past mistakes. These energetic beats and a funk-infused bass line veil a sense of lonely determinism, as we emerge from the rhythmic experience with a renewed commitment to "going it alone."
Harry Nathan's latest collab with Angus1 has all the marks of another runaway hit: philosophical lyricism, complex dynamics, and a complex groove that teems with the emotional aftershock of lost love.
