No Regular Play - Swim On [Preview] by Wolf + Lamb Records

BEATPORT: http://btprt.dj/1pFvLxt Having met at 8 years olds in Minnesota, the deadly duo making up No Regular Play have had plenty of time under their belts together. They’ve nurtured years of musical chemistry developed through their mutual love for hip-hop and jazz since childhood, ultimately translating the essentials of these genres into their own style of experimental electronic music. Since the ripe age of 12, Greg Paulus performed trumpet at local jazz clubs into the wee hours of the night and ultimately went on to study jazz/classical music at the Manhattan School of Music. Pair that with Nick DeBruyn’s ability to lay down a masterful rhythm, somehow finding a way to fuse an indie vibe with a deep house touch while never forgetting his jazz roots, and you get another track that is consistent with No Regular Play’s distinct style. Wolf + Lamb is excited to present NRP’s latest collaboration, Too Dramatic, one of their most anticipated releases since their album Endangered Species. They stay true to their imaginative, self-styled approach to electronic music by having this track led by catchy vocals and groovy instrumentals while still staying very dancefloor-friendly. Too Dramatic will be a perfect addition to the incredible live sets No Regular Play is known for, a performance for which they tour worldwide regularly as well as holding residency in Brooklyn’s unique Marcy Hotel. The aged, deep-rooted musical connection between the duo, which is palpable during their live shows, has allowed No Regular Play to develop as musicians and will continue to do so as long as the instruments let them.
