Aussie artist Harry Nathan gifts us with his latest EP Sweet Release so we can throw dance parties from the safety of our homes. And it’s not just a hip-shaking collection of songs, but they have a flavor to it that makes you wanna savor it while taking your time – perfect for lounging. So even if you don’t feel like dancing, just close your eyes and listen to this EP as you imagine Harry playing his guitar with Mandala tapestry in the background (see photo above for reference) right in front of you.  It’s stressfully soothing:

On his EP, Harry shared:

The Sweet Release EP is a loungey deep/disco house project. I always loved house music growing up, and was a big fan of labels like Defected, Nervous and Ed Banger. I would record live DJ mixes of fresh house cuts I’d discovered and give the cd’s to my friends. These days most house music is produced and mixed for functionality; to work on a dance floor. I wanted to create an EP that was a more lo-fi, laid back lounge version of deep and disco house. Making music that is ‘listenable’ as opposed to a ‘banger’ is very important to me. People used to ask me if my music was purposely lo-fi and I never understood what that meant. I eventually realised that my taste naturally gravitates toward a nostalgic, lo-fidelity sound. Most dance music these days is so bright and loud, mixed to slam. This doesn’t interest me. I just want to make music that I like and feels good.”
