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.

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
