Live Preview: Nathan Geyer

16-year-old South-East Londoner, Nathan Geyer, is emerging onto the electronic music spectrum. Although with only a few tracks to his name, the musically acute artist has already made some very free formed and natural sounds that are inspired by the ambient and house genres. Geyer is a name to watch out for, with an upcoming gig this month and further productions in the pipeline, rising credibility is not far out of sight.

‘We Are’ is Nathan’s second tune after ‘Rise Up’. 'We Are' begins very calmly and with a degree of subtlety, the lo-fi effect at the beginning greeted with what feels a very loose/lack of a time signature makes it feel quite anticipative. This melancholic sound is then wound up to a level that feels consistent, after a jolted changing of state from sustained synth and mysteriousness to a steadiness in terms of movement, it is clear to see the versatility that the young Londoner has. Imagery also plays a big role in the music; Geyer intended the video to have a reflection of urban contrasts, as recordings around various parts of London were added in to the music. The very short and sweet ending is met with the sustained synth from the beginning and the recurring voice samples, and really leaves the ears wanting more. Overall it’s a very solid and refined start in production for Nathan.

Free on the 30th March? Catch Nathan Geyer at the first Uncover Music event at The Albany in Deptford; alongside Lucy Cait, Mathlete, 2Morrows Victory, J’Danna and Endless. The first of (hopefully) many more dates in the future promise to expose new artists and producers, and is definitely worth checking out if you are in the South-East area! Tickets are £3 in advance and £5 on the door, check out the links below for more info and to buy a ticket.
