NatasK

I Keep It Moving

8BC Recordings

4.5

From top to bottom, I Keep It Moving – the debut release of NatasK – is one of the best-crafted recent local releases, with high-end production and thoughtful genre blending. More than just an EDM artist, NatasK exhibits a fresh and welcomed sense of where electronic music is headed. From house to hip-hop, from Dubstep to Drum & Bass, I Keep It Moving dares listeners to define its sound without being disjointed. Rather, the album – just as the songs – spins as a unified work, not just fractured fragments of sound and could easily be played front to back in clubs worldwide. Lead single “Lose It All” (featuring Lake City Fresh, who delivers a strong performance here and elsewhere on the album) hits the listener first with a simple, yet hauntingly rich piano riff that floats atop a complex mix of percussion that dares you not to want to dance – and think, which makes this an artfully entertaining experience.
