24.4Mihai Popoviciu – Decimals E.P (Highgrade Records)

MIHAI POPOVICIU Decimals E.P NOYZ Audio

 Mihai Popoviciu – Decimals E.P (Highgrade Records)

Something a little more on the melodic side today from Romanian producer Mihai Popoviciu. Mihai has really impressed us recently with his unique style that incorporates sounds from a mix of genres that obviously inspire him. Whilst the tracks seem rooted in tech-house they all have a more melodic and deep feel and he uses synthesizers to great effect which really make the tracks stand out from the crowd. He has clearly worked extremely hard to craft his sound and it looks like it was worthwhile on the evidence of his latest releases.

For his latest E.P he returns to German label Highgrade Records. It’s a 4 track E.P and all of the tracks are extremely strong and work well together to form a really cohesive package. The pick for us off the E.P is the title track ‘Decimals’. It moulds a dark, twisted and almost acid synth line around a really deep and thumping drum track. We love the live drums that work throughout to keep the groove interesting.

9.3Darkrow & Miguel Bastida – Oaks (Original Mix) [The Room]

the room oak

As all of us gear up for tonight’s antics you can always rely on NOYZ to supply you with a soundtrack to get you in the party spirit!

Miguel Bastida has been solely featured before on NOYZ. However it is now the combination of fresh production talent of Miguel himself and Spanish up and comer Darkrow who have teamed up to make a killer EP called Phonky Rhythm out now on The Room Records.

Miguel Bastida started off making House beats in his teens, and since then has developed a refined palette for cool Techno and rhythmical Tech-House. Darkrow follows in this same vein floating around sub genres of Techno and groovy undergound House. Between them they have had huge support from many underground artists such as Marco Carola, Dave Clarke, Shlomi Aber, and Paco Osuna. Releases have graced the catalogues of Be As One Recordings, Night Light Records, SK Supreme Records, and 1605. As you can see the pair have a wealth of experience when it comes to releasing big dance floor shakers.

The EP has two original tracks along with two remixes of the headline track. One remix is a slightly deeper take by Matheo Velez contrasted by Matt Klast‘s shuffling, percussion filled groove. However for us we were drawn to the second track on the EP ‘Oaks’. It is a thick groove that sits so tight together in terms of it’s production and it’s tempo, listening to it you couldn’t imagine it being a fast, all out stomper. Instead it feels considered and packs a punch in all of the right places. Go on, get ready, and enjoy!

8.3Simina Grigoriu – Kokopelli (Pan-Pot Remix)

Simina Grigoriu – Kokopelli (Pan-Pot Remix) NOYZ Audio

We always look forward to new music from Pan-Pot and this latest remix from the guys for Simina Grigoriu doesn’t disappoint!

As always Pan-Pot craft a heavy production that encompasses their unique blend of house and techno to the fullest. They manage to retain a melodic and musical undertone to the remix whilst still keeping the foundation firmly in the underground and we feel this is a big reason why the guys are so successful. It’s a difficult job to make the underground more accessible and very few can do it but we definitely put Pan-Pot in this category. We love the vocal stabs that pitch up and down throughout the track, they build a real intensity before the acid line takes over to bring a trippy feel to the mix. As with most of Pan-Pot’s records you really need to hear them in a huge dark room at a silly time in the morning to really hear just how huge the tracks are and the atmosphere that they create!

As mentioned above the remix is for Berlin based Simina Grigoriu and features the vocal talents of British artist MAMA. The original is the first single from Simina’s album which will be released by Susumu Recordings and the remix package includes another heavyweight in the form of Paul Kalkbrenner. A remix package that any record label would envy! Check Pan-Pot’s remix out below!…..

24.2Patch Park – Paradise In Trouble (Elevate)

Patch Park - Paradise In Trouble NOYZ Audio

NOYZ favourites Pig & Dan recently launched their own label called Elevate. The first release on Elevate was the huge two track E.P fittingly titled ‘Savage’ that stormed up the techno charts whilst receiving support from all the key players in the process. Pig & Dan are on a serious roll at the moment which doesn’t look like slowing down. There is a high output of consistently amazing tracks coming from the guys and if the first two releases on their label are anything to go by we are looking forward to hearing what else they have in store for Elevate!

The second release on the label comes from dutch artist and Fone Audio co owner Patch Park. The E.P feels like a great release to follow ‘Savage’ with its melodic undertones and ferocious low end it really seems like the guys have a solid direction and sound to take the label forwards.

Our pick of the E.P is the lead track titled ‘Paradise In Trouble’. Its a fine track by Patch Park that manages to blend melody and groove to perfection which is something that is difficult to do! Definitely one for the big dark rooms!

28.1Gregor Tresher – System X E.P (Drumcode)

Gregor Tresher System X Artwork NOYZ Audio

Gregor Tresher has risen through the ranks to become one of Germanys biggest Techno exports. Since the release of his classic record from 2007 “A Thousand Nights”  he has steadily built a huge fan base that has seen him take his music to all corners of the globe. Gregor has built an enviable discography releasing music on some of the biggest labels in Techno including Cocoon, Ovum and his own imprint Break New Soil. He now continues his long standing relationship with Adam Beyer‘s Drumcode with this monster 4 track E.P titled “System X”

All four tracks are to the high standard we have come to expect from Gregor and Drumcode. The pick for us is the fourth track on the E.P titled “Call To Arms”. The rolling bassline builds intensity throughout the track keeping a constant peak time energy. The atmospheres that swirl around the heavy drums are perfectly placed and provide even more tension to track.

You can check out “Call To Arms” below.

4.11Mauro Norti – You and Me (Max Cooper Remix)

Max Cooper is an artist who draws inspiration from many different genres and influences, bringing it together in a unique style that is hypnotic, dark and melodic.

If you follow Max’s music you will instantly be able to recognise his productions. His beats are extremely intricate and although very glitchy at times they still manage to blend together, forming a perfect groove that compliments the complex melodies and lush atmospheres which sit above them.

He is a true artist who never compromises his integrity; this is all too apparent when you see how dedicated his fan base is. Amongst his fans are some of the biggest DJ’s in the world including Sasha and John Digweed for whom Max has released music on their respective labels Last Night On Earth and Bedrock.

Max is renowned for his remixes. Reworks of Hot Chip and Portishead are prime examples and set the blogs alight whilst topping the Hype Machine in the process.

Here we have his latest remix. Gorgeous and melodic, it really takes the listener on a journey.

The remix is part of a very solid Mauro Norti remix E.P for Wide Angle Recordings, and includes the Mauro originals and remixes from Max, Oliver Lieb and Travis Macdonald.
