Indian born, Berlin based artist DASO (aka Daso Franke) drops the debut release on the Nsyde imprint. "Why Try" ever so subtly creeps into your brain, with an ethereal vocal hook working as the glue that keeps the raw drum programming and twinkling keys stuck together. Reade Truth's remix is a more tribal affair, with the keys given room to breath amidst a growing swell of rich Detroit atmospherics. Hogging the whole flipside is NYC underground legend Fred P, who keeps it dusky and deep on his version of "Why Try", chopping up the vocals and submerging them in warm, emotive chords. A superb debut for Nsyde that has already seen love from Keith Worthy, Daniel Bell, Basic Soul Unit and Efdemin.
