This is the debut full-length by Brooklyn's Nick Chacona. Writing and producing the songs that make up Love In The Middle were a veritable outpouring of the house hero's emotions as channeled through the many genres that make up Nick's ever-evolving sound. From the cosmic disco of album-opener "Especial" (penned with frequent production partner Anthony Mansfield), to the futuristic boogie-pop of "The Fear" (featuring Sheffield's disco songstress Kathy Diamond); the raw house of "Wait" (featuring the inimitable Brothers Vibe on vocal duties); the gorgeously emotive, Mr. Fingers-inspired "Be Like Olive"; or the deep, bassbin-shaking dub of "Eskayelator," it's clear that Nick's equally at home producing myriad styles. Speaking of home, Nick called many a place just that throughout the recording process, and it was these varied locations that also shaped the album's eclectic sound. Berlin's vibrant club life, not to mention his friends Sasse and Dirt Crew's James Flavour helped to give the album that soundsystem-savvy oomph. San Francisco brought the sunshine, and the opportunity to collaborate with Anthony Mansfield. In between snowboarding sessions in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado and taking in the autumn foliage in upstate New York, Nick found solace in the peaceful environs the countryside had to offer. The ethereal, hand-painted artwork is courtesy of Shanan Campanaro -- the "love" he found "in the middle" of making the album. From his recent remix of Fever Ray's "Seven"; to Greg Wilson's recent inclusion of his and Mansfield's disco bomb "Oh Snap!," to his new project Beg To Differ with The Wurst Music Co's label boss, Roy Dank; to this absolutely stunning debut, Chacona is at the top of his game.
