The Hug and Pint presents: NZCA / LINES & MAGIC DADDY
In the same way that the great Nazca Lines of Peru from which NZCA/lines take their name, can only be perceived from high above, so the music of NZCA/lines can only be taken in gradually, such is its scope and depth. Originally conceived as a guitar based project, NZCA/lines has been transformed into a suave, synth-pop sensation that combines pop melodies with R&B beats and lush arrangements with multi layered harmonies.
Magic Daddy, aka Glasgow-based musician Greg Hurst, has been writing and producing electronic music for 15 years. He has produced solo instrumental tracks and various vocal and band collaborations. He flippantly defines his style as ‘trifle-tech’, referring to his method of throwing everything in to see what sticks. In fact he has never settled on a particular style, preferring to be informed by current club trends but always trying to create something fresh. One thing’s for sure: he will never be accused of minimalism. His first releases were the Black Rabbit Whorehouse EP (2005, Optimo nightclub’s Oscarr label) and the Insert Title Here EP (2005, on Stuffrecords, which later became Numbers). Since then he has been playing keyboards and producing for several Glasgow bands, including post-rock / post-bass synths-and-guitars outfit Machines in Heaven. His acclaimed remixes of Glasgow bands Nevada Base, How To Swim and For Abel have all been released in 2012. His Soundcloud page has been very active of late, having recently been updated with all previous releases and many unreleased tracks.
