NERVE Meridian Blaze
EP / Digital (HEVMAC052)

Melbourne electronic phenomenon NERVE presents his debut long-form release Meridian Blaze – four extreme rhythm workouts exploring notions of drum and bass, noise, electro, dark ambient, and industrial techno.

Meridian Blaze expands upon the brutal hardware electronic sound of NERVE’s previous output to deftly incorporate the spine-tingling melodic sonorities of Melbourne’s extraordinary public sound sculpture: the Federation Bells. The result is an icily meticulous collection of groundbreaking hybrid electroacoustic sound works.

NERVE is Joshua Wells, a Naarm (Melbourne) based musician, engineer and producer. As NERVE, Wells has relentlessly performed, presenting his works of extreme volume rhythm workouts across international and domestic club circuits. For his debut on Heavy Machinery, Wells has utilised the Federation Bells to create four compositions that traverse BPM’s, composition and rhythm that touch on notions of drum and bass, noise, electro, techno and beyond. Wells’ has recorded and performed in many recording projects, known for his energetic live sets and productions which have seen him release recordings on taste-making imprints A Colourful Storm, Downwards, & La Vida Es Un Mus.

Meridian Blaze will be released on digital and and as limited vinyl edition featuring cover art by TOOMUCHVOID on Feb 10 2023.
