Nila & Triggs – Snakes & Ladders EP

NILA is a Scottish DJ and producer whose passion for dance music started way back in 1992 in his hometown of Edinburgh. After hearing the likes of Dave Angel, Sasha, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, NILA’s passion for dance music quickly formed into an obsession, and then into a way of life.

Spending nights DJ’ing at numerous house parties to hone his craft, NILA secured his first club spot as a main act at the tender age of 16. NILA then went on to play all the best clubs around Scotland to critical acclaim, highlighting his career by being invited to create several guest mixes for ‘Beat 106’, Scotland’s premiere dance radio station. Since then, NILA has been invited to play as a guest on many radio stations including: Frisky Radio, Circle – Ibiza Radio 1, Groundworx Session FM (UK), George FM, DNA Radio FM, Innervisions Radio and Late Night Grooves Radio. NILA has also released his own music on a number of well-respected underground labels such as Pro-B Tech Records, ICONYC, Keep Thinking, Hydrogen, Plethora Muzik, Wulfpack, Deep And Under, Unrivalled Music and For The Record to name just a few.

For this release, NILA teams up with his production partner Triggs (NZ) aka Andrew Treagust. Triggs (NZ) is a music writer, producer & DJ with over 20 years’ experience being in and around the electronic music scene. As part of the widely acclaimed ‘Southern Cross’ production team, Triggs (NZ) has released music on Evolution’s seminal Fluid Recordings, State of the Eye, Sony, Columbia, Stripped, Krafted, Hype Muzik, Segment, Disco Electronica, and has also remixed Karyn Park, Jomanda, Ryan Luciano and Seb Dhajje amongst many others. Given their knowledge of the scene, years of experience and love for progressive music, as well as a solid release on the well-respected Stripped Recordinsgs, NILA and Triggs (NZ) seem destined to leave a mark on the scene as things begin to reopen.

Here, both NILA and Triggs (NZ) produce the Snakes and Ladders EP, a package with an inviting progressive feel and energy. ‘Reality Conflict’ is a monstrous break beat with a huge main melody and up-tempo drum work and that is versatile and well suited for either a breaks or progressive dance floor. ‘Snakes and Ladders’ is a more traditional four to the floor beat, whose catchy bass line and attractive melody is sure to set the dance floor ablaze with positivity once played.

On remix duty, Both Scippo and WILSON deliver outstanding renditions of both tracks. Scippo’s ‘housey’ remix of ‘Reality Conflict’ can well be heard on sandy beaches from California to Ibiza, while WILSØN aka the legendary Michael Wilson turns ‘Snakes and Ladders’ out into something only he can muster.
