Featuring collaborations with Lateef the Truthspeaker and Eko Zu
Mallabel Music is back once again with some more of that full live band feeling with San Francisco’s NVO, showing us how to bring that funk down as they keep bringing their hybrid live/electronic goods to the people.
NVO’s latest release, ‘The Signal’ is an inspiring assemblage that draws you to the outer edge of the universe. NVO has taken their sound one step further with this release with the addition of vocalist and trumpet player Charles Darius, wrapping their wildly digital synth beats around organic elements. The live aspects of these four shine through as they keep the vibe down to earth while their melodies launch you to outer space and beyond.
The title track blasts off as all systems are checked before launching us to the cosmos with some soul from Lateef the Truthspeaker. ‘Like a Panther’ drops serious slap over driving vocal styles, while ‘Shift Me’ gets bumping and grinding to some sex appeal featuring Eko Zu. ‘Limitless’ lets the lasers loose in a techy House funker for dark rooms. Finally, ‘So Alive’ takes it home with some atmospheric beauty beats. We’re always stoked for more NVO, these cats bring it every time, and you should too!

This trio has been busy since our March release now totaling 4 EPs and an LP amongst remixes to and from some of electronica’s heavy hitters including My Pet Monster and Mochipet. The dedication to their craft has taken them to new heights and learning experiences including the creation of two tracks from this EP in one of the state-of-the-art recording environments over at Zoo Labs Oakland as part of their ‘Music Acceleration’ residency program. Investing heavily in musical exploration and creativity while challenging conventional expectations of composition drives these three to push the boundaries of innovative design to a visionary new elevation.
MalLabel Music is stoked this week to be able to bring you more live band electronic music, this time in the form of an all original album from San Francisco’s NVO.
Their new EP, Night Vision Odyssey is an energetic cruise through genre and feeling opening up strong with ‘Burnin’ a warm Progressive/Electro banger definitely setting the dial to ‘Party’. ‘Desert Gothic’ sustains the flow in a rolling Progressive number featuring a driving guitar solo taking this Steampunk journey cascading across sand dunes and sky. Recorded in full at Zoo Labs, ‘Sidewalks’ makes use of the recording space to orchestral proportions bringing a full Big Band groove while adding some electronic Mid-Tempo flavor. Next, ‘Sundrenched’ takes it slow and synthy over warm keys and arpeggio, bringing us to a place rich with dynamic, elightened tones and tasteful sonic manipulations in the beautiful ‘Reforestation’. Closing off the EP is the second track taking advantage of their Zoo Labs residency with a sultry sweet drive through the twilight hours entitled, ‘Midnight Pulse’. Something different and ever changing from end to end, this is one EP not to miss and a group we are sure to be keeping track of.
