Nightfall is the solo production album by Gadget which consists of thirteen instrumentals produced as a result of often being inspired by the cosy feeling of the night and the "bright lights in the big city" of London. Each track was made during a time period when Gadget felt most motivated and focused on his craft around this particular time of the day.
This project features one or two fan favourites and a couple of tracks which were leaked as previews, all of which have been revisited, fine tuned and topped off with brand new head nodding Hip Hop straight out of the 'Audio Dojo' where Gadget aka Dirty Thumbs gets busy.
Expect dark moods, funky breaks, hard hitting drums, uplifting melodies, spiritual and melancholic vibes, lot of Jazz and even some Reggae influences, but always heavily driven by Hip Hop.
"This album is dedicated to Bridgette Yvette Stuart who was my proud Mother, friend and teacher that passed away in January 9th 2014 after losing a battle with Cancer. 'Lone Stroller' was made with her in mind during her fight, and the sound carries the feelings. It was also the last thing I was able to create during that time, which told me the album was now complete as I was no longer motivated during the evenings.
A few months later I began to dig in bags of 45's I found in her loft : bit.ly/BabsysCrate
: and I made 'Bashmental'. This has begun a new chapter as I intend to eventually make an album using nothing but those records. She would have loved that and boasted about the idea when among her closest people!!" -
