Nur Jaber Joins Forces With Luca Eck For An EP
The groundbreaking Berlin-based producer, who is known for her energetic & emotional techno music, has teamed up with Luca Eck for a 3-track EP.
Both formally based in Berlin, Luca’s first appearance on Nur Jaber’s OSF came in 2021 through his contribution to the ‘Planet OSF’ compilation. Since then, the techno talents have forged a relationship both in and out of the studio, which has now resulted in this collaborative earth-shattering EP.
The ‘Fall To Pieces’ EP is an extension of Nur Jaber deep and emotional techno sound, with a heavy touch. The EP begins with title track ‘Fall to Pieces,’ which is an explosive rework of KUMMER’s pop sensation ‘Bei Dir,’ featuring Nur’s yearning vocals and misting pads that float under the ascending narrative while featuring Luca Eck’s razor-sharp style.
Second track, ‘Fatima’s Prayer,’ is a contrast from the opener, featuring Nur Jaber’s and Luca Eck’s penchant for dark, ethereal elements that reverberate throughout the tune with its growling synths, sharp percussive swipes. Nur and Luca close the EP immaculately with ‘Violence,’ which quite literally brings out the best of the pair’s blend of celestial and pounding sounds that climb frantically until the breakdown, before exploding once again into a galloping techno journey.
