Title: A-Block Trax Vol. 2
Format: 12″ Vinyl
Robsoul Recordings welcome back the talented Nail for the second installment of his A Block Trax series. Volume 1’s deep Midlands grooves picked up praise from Charles Webster, Fred Everything, Danny Krivit, Fish Go Deep and Jay Tripwire, and Volume 2 follows in exactly the same footsteps, delighting those who know Nail’s music from back in the day.
Mark Farina succinctly sums the resurgence of the Nottingham-based producer: “Nail back on the block!”
What goes around comes around, so the saying goes, and for Neil “Nail” Tolliday—2013 is the year for come arounds. Whilst this side of the millennium was spent chiefly on Bent, his eight-year partnership with Simon Mills that headlined festivals and was a huge commercial success, prior that he was simply Nail, underground house producer and admired cult DJ—origins that some twenty years later are being exposed anew.
With two EPs for Phil Weeks’ Robsoul Recordings – the first volume of A Block Trax and a collaboration with Cass Roc as The NG9 Project – and another on the way for AirDrop, Nail is fervently back, and more pertinent than ever.
Release date: 13th December 2013
