Inner Touch is the embodiment of Nicolas Field within the electronic music art form. The music is both simple and deceptively deep, best suited to those seeking moments of transcendence on the dancefloor. 100% Gone is the debut EP from Inner Touch. A five track exploration of synthetic textures, pulsing beats and polyrhythm that would happily bop in any night club. Yet these tracks hold the listener effortlessly to a place of fulfilled solitude and with a wonder for the natural world. This juxtaposition of solitude and community, nature and synthesis is what makes Inner Touch so special and a joy to listen to.
