After an 11 year run as one of Triple J’s most influential and highly regarded presenters, Nina Las Vegas parted way with the radio station earlier this month to focus upon her career as a DJ/producer and establishing ambitious new dance label NLV Records.
The third track from a ‘label sampler’ which will showcase new tracks from all 5 of label’s talented stable of artists, Contagious has been preceded by Melbourne local Lewis Cancut’s tropicana infused Systems and Passage from New Zealand natives Air Max 97.
Considering that one of the founding objectives of NLV is to provide a greater voice for female producers, it comes as little surprise that Las Vegas’ latest work is a collaborative effort with emerging U.S. producer Snappy Jit.
Combining booming trap kicks, militant snares and an adrenaline fuelled tempo, Contagious is a seriously infectious dance stomper.
Combing anthemic lyrical exclamations like ‘We don’t need sleep/I got that dance fever’ with a truly climatic builds Las Vegas’s latest is a carefree party starter which is sure to please fans.
With new tracks from labelmates Strict Face and Swick coming soon, things are certainly shaping up for Las Vegas and her promising new venture.
