About ‘Don’t Take It Personally’:
TITLE: DON’T TAKE IT PERSONALLY
1. JOHN BARRETT
2. FAT KAOSS
6. CURRY BOX
8. CHINA ECLIPSE
Niagara is the collaborative project of artists/producers David Tomat (TOMAT / N.A.M.B./ GEMINI EXCERPT) and Gabriele Ottino (N.A.M.B. / Milena Lovesick / GEMINI EXCERPT), whose off-kilter take on pop incorporates elements of electronic, psychedelic, Eastern and dance music.
There is always a concept behind Niagara’s music. This time it’s about the ongoing struggle to balance our desire to develop and exploit technology against the need to make technology more sympathetic to nature.
The album will be issued on CD and digital formats as well as a limited edition 300 copy pressing on 180 gm pink vinyl with a free album CD included.
Pre-order the album from our web shop.
