Something perfect for the upcoming warm summer days.

Our dear Boyan delivers another smoothness, and today his full joint EP with Ivor Novello-nominated UK singer Nathan Thomas is out. Sunset Rider is a collection of both soulful & funky songs and will surely seduce you, no matter which of those two vibes you're after.

Boyan & Nathan met through social media after Nathan got featured on the 2018 deep house anthem “Heat” by Rapson, released by the legendary Defected Records.

Boyan shares, “This EP has been in the works for almost 2 years now and I couldn’t be more excited to see it finally get released! These 4 tracks are really special for me because they represent a period in my creative journey where I was looking for a very specific sound. A sound that differs a lot from my “usual” approach to making music. Since I’ve started producing more soul/hip-hop music, I’ve always wanted to make instrumentals that sound like they were played live by a band. Recreating the sound of a live band but programmed in a DAW is kind of an interesting process and really requires a different approach with the sounds that I’m using, the overall tone shaping & groove establishment. I was looking for a warmer tone approach and a bit of a nostalgic feeling when making this body of work. But what I think is most special about these tracks though is what Nathan Thomas did on the vocal side."

There's a reason the EP is called Sunset Rider and why I wanted to share this song with you - "The title track really has such a unique vibe to it, a little bit nostalgic, a little bit romantic, just the perfect tune to play when you are watching the sunset on the sea horizon with your loved one”, Boyan adds. Amazing jazzy keys, subtle groove & stunning vocals.
