The man that is Plastic Plates, Felix Bloxsom, has had an awesome music year. Or, actually, we should say we’ve had an awesome musical year being on the receiving end of is amazing output in 2013. Well, the year isn’t over yet, and next on Plastic Plates Italo chopping block is the new single from Nile Delta. You’ll know by now that Nile Delta is Joel Dickson, formerly of the amazing Riot In Belgium and one half of Voltage and released the Aztec single this week on Cut Copy’s Cutters Records imprint.
Plastic Plates mix of Aztec bounces along on a intricate popping melody that slowly builds into a full-blown, hands-in-the-air piano hook. With an array of analog synths weaving in and out of the track, a enticing vintage vibe is maintained while the original’s vocals flow from hushed to epic along with the track’s rise. More amazingly solid work from Plastic Plates

Here’s another reMix of Ladyhawke’s first single from her forthcoming sophomore album ‘Anxiety’, ‘Black, White And Blue’. This time it’s Nile Delta stepping up to the plate to drop a deep electronic Acid Disco groove.
There’s a real old school Chicago feel to Nile Delta’s version. 909 rimshots and burbling Acid lines are the order of the day here, which work surprisingly (and I do mean surprisingly) well with Pips vocals. The whole thing sounds slightly more detached than before, but in a dark, strobe fuelled, club kinda’ way. Both alienating and involving. It’s my favourite mix of this track so far.

Wow, a bit late with this one, about a month it be exact!
Nile Delta is the new project from Joel Dickson, formerly of the amazing Riot In Belgium and one half of Voltage. he released his début EP last month, a double A side ‘Channel’ and ‘All This’ (featuring Ben Browning from Cut Copy). Both tracks are spaced out DiscoPop, ‘Channel’ having more of a Filter-House vibe and this track, ‘All This’ being a Cosmic Disco/ElectroPop odyssey.
turn it up and let it take you away.
