"Nomadic is Cuban artist Alain Hernandez. Not a newcomer to Touchin' Bass, he released a track on the SUBsidence comp a while back called 'Anxiety' -- the title said it all! However, Trek 19 is a collection of unreleased tracks and stories from the vaults that Andrea Parker heard and loved many years ago. It was her job to rescue and release them. In her opinion, they are all timeless gems that needed to be heard. This album features electronic beats of rare beauty, twisted melodies, shimmering broken rhythms, throbbing bass lines and dark volcanic tones. This is a wonderful piece of sound archive footage. Nomadic has also recorded a new artist album which will be coming out on Touchin' Bass later on in the year. On 'Trek 19' Nomadic experiments in an unusual way of song writing. He manages to somehow tell a mysterious story layering broken-down beats, blanked melancholic melodies, glitches, stitches and not to mention bass! From the opening peppered breaks of '27th Ave,' the white noise melody of 'Trek 19' and rolling bass and eerie sonics of 'Overpass' to the ruptured beats of 'K1 Part 2,' down tempo foreboding of 'Locked Doors' and the abstract staccato rhythms of the closing 'Avocado Drive,' Nomadic manages to be both experimental and enchanting at the same time."
