Selector’s Sounds series follows a procedure that puts music quality before status or industry relationships. Learn how it works.

“Pour les Danseurs” (“for the dancers” in English) is the slogan of London’s Nuances de Nuit imprint. It’s a very fitting motto, as the label has made its mark putting forth some irresistibly groovy house numbers like T. Jacques‘ techy “Context” and the breakbeat-infused “Legwork” from Huerta. Now, the fifth edition of the label’s eponymous series has arrived, and it’s packing four more dance floor delights to capitalize on that motto.

On the A-side, Mehlor and Le Louche deliver a big nod to the traditional house sound with “Chromium.” Mirroring that track’s energy is “More Pumpin (Ode To Joy Instrumental)” from Thyone Girls. It’s a stabby house stomper that doesn’t hold back with a memorable bass line best suited for peak time at an Ibiza beach party.

The flip side takes things a bit deeper, as Local Dub‘s entrancing “Moon Dog” impresses with its acid-tinged synths and spacey chord play. To round things out, Karaba returns to serve up steamy, tech-ridden melodies that bounce nicely off of the syncopation in the hi-hats and snares in “Hors Piste,” closing out Nuances de Nuit, Vol. 5 in impeccable fashion.

With Vol. 5, Nuances de Nuit have set a high bar for London dance music, and they continue to develop a roster of artists that suit the imprint’s vibrant personality while expanding on an already dialed-in sound. No coincidence here: Nuances de Nuit is indisputably for the dancers.

Nuances de Nuit, Vol. 5 is available for pre-order on vinyl through subwax bcn via
