Forever Fonder, Nepheww.

Forever Fonder, Nepheww.

When it comes to London-based deep groove practitioner Nepheww, aka Jacob Taylor, exposure to his every endeavour only intensifies these strangely paternal feelings I harbour for him and his richly textured musics. For it’s a genuine dexterity he’s fostering under this particular guise, and one I’d be more than happy to unclee as it were. His latest, a more profoundly floor-ready viber entitled Magnolium, again strengthens the bond as a couple Indian a cappella vocals are intricately interwoven with nuanced beats and slight drops; soft wobbles and smooth transitions. Aside from it being the title of a Tomas Kalnoky track from the Czech upstart’s dyed-in-the-wool Gimp days, I’ve no idea as to what Magnolium may be exactly. The term sounds like some form of chemical formula derived from ornamental foliage, although most pertinently the song itself resembles a work of perfectly cathartic beauty relaxing as Ooty’s Government Botanical Garden which is simultaneously hot and heady as downtown Delhi. Another patriarchal figurative pat on the back is in order I feel, even in light of my linguistic misgivings.
