Pyro - Tension / Spaced [Nerve001]

After myself and Pyro had a few collaborative releases under our belts on labels like Trouble on Vinyl and Flex it seemed like a logical step to launch our own label. Dylan from Alphamagic got in touch offering to set it all up for it – nice and simple P&D style. After scratching our heads for a name for a while we finally came up with Nerve and the label was born!

Originally we had planned to use the label to release just our own material and these two tracks had been kicking around on dub, getting a fair bit of attention, so they seemed the perfect candidates to kick us off.

For the artwork, we were given the luxury of a fully designed bag as opposed to the black disco bag, at the time I was co-running an event called LiveVEvil in Glasgow and Nick who designed all the flyers offered to help out with the artwork. I jumped at the offer and the above artwork was designed!

Although the tracks do sound a little dated now, I’m still very proud of them and will never forget playing “Tension” off a 10″ plate to a packed Glasgow Art School crowd, seeing them go off and thinking “aye”

So grab the MP3s and play em loud.
