Nervous Horizon are back with the second in a series of quick-fire EP releases, this time in the form of Ehua's 'Aquamarine' - her first EP proper for the label after contributing a track ('Meteora') to 2019's 'NH Vol.3' compilation.

Following hot on the heels of SIM's dancehall-inflected 'Terminate' EP, 'Aquamarine' details five new tracks inspired by both the colour and motion of water.

With tempos ranging from 95-140bpm, Ehua also uses custom made percussive samples and original vocals - spoken thoughts in reversed Italian on 'Black' - to harness different motions and states, collecting thoughts on organisms, frequencies and vibrations that we might not be aware of or perceive.

These ideas and concepts take shape via a rich and experimental, five-track workflow that moves between the dark, sludgy broken-beats of 'Xantho' through to the unnerving, drone techno of 'Diatom' - a track written to mirror the darkest depths of the ocean.
