Nunca Duerma is the musical project of Tahif Attiek. Operating out of Chicago, the Detroit-born multi-instrumentalist and producer returns with Ven Ahora. Over 29 minutes, Attiek tests the boundaries of club music with this equally abstract and evocative new album. The album achieves a certain duality as tracks sway from one extreme to another. The summertime daze on “Sweat-Moves” is balanced out by the rainy day pulse of “Black Sea.” Saxophone provided by Dante Cope on “She Is Gone” glides through the deepest reaches of outer space. The dynamics that Attiek establishes make this some of his strongest work yet.
Ven Ahora is out now via Young Heavy Souls. If you dig what you hear, you can purchase this album on your choice of CD or cassette here.
