Carlo Lio – A Dusty Heart (SCI+TEC)

Hey guys!!

Once again we bring back a talent that has graced the NOYZ pages time and time again. A fan favourite that destroys dance floors all over the globe. His interview for NOYZ gave us an incite into what goes on more behind the scenes of his musical lifestyle, that man is of course, Mr Carlo Lio.

It’s hard to find ways of making fresh tracks that consistently vibe with an international audience, however Carlo Lio is a trend setter. His sound has sparked inspiration into a lot of the new techno being heard today. How do we know this?… Simply put… He was the first to do it! Relentless drums, powerful bass, bottom-end groove, twisted effects, and hypnotic vocals are some of the choice ingredients Carlo uses to make his sound his own.

As a testament to this hard work we bring you his NINTH release on Dubfire‘s SCI+TEC Digital imprint. A Dusty Heart is a dusty, shimmering frenzy! Mesmerising vocals carry the groove through crazy breakdowns and roller-coaster highs and lows. A simple but effective low passing of the whole track gives the crowd a respite from the madness before it builds and starts again, and again, and again!

So without further ado here is the track!

Be sure to checkout both of Marco Faraone‘s mixes for an alternate take on the original!

22.4Ante Ujevic – Entheos (Matt Sassari Remix)

Ante Ujevic – Entheos (Matt Sassari Remix)

In our first post of 2013 we featured Matt Sassari‘s Whisper E.P and said how excited we were to hear more music from the young Frenchman. He has definitely continued to keep up to the same high standards that were set with the Whisper E.P and this latest remix on Potobolo is a fine example!

The remix is for Canadian Ante Ujevic‘s track ‘Entheos’. The original track is a great production in its own right and we will definitely be keeping an eye out for Ante’s future tracks but it’s the remix that really hits the spot for us. As usual with Matt Sassari’s tracks there is a dark atmosphere at work that really creates tension throughout. The vocal works really well and draws the breakdown out until the groove kicks in with a serious thump! You  can hear Matt is heavily influenced by label boss Ron Costa.

Here is the remix,

Pascal Nuzzo – One Time (Intacto)

After what seemed like the longest winter forever in the U.K we have finally entered into Spring. As we do a new mix for each season we have started collating tracks ready for it. In doing so we came across this monster of a track from Pascal Nuzzo on the always consistent Intacto.

We were not familar with Pascal’s music prior to this release and so as always we checked out his back catalogue. It seems he had more of a driving and melodic sound previously however this release seems like a really big step up for us. Such a huge and heavy sound that is extremely current. We hope Pascal continues with this style of production as we will be excited to hear more! There is also a nice remix on the package from one of the labels owners Shinedoe which is well worth checking out for those who like it a little deeper.

15.4WHYT NOYZ – SynthesiZe E.P (Octopus Black)

WHYT NOYZ Synthesize EP Octopus Black

WHYT NOYZ – SynthesiZe E.P (Octopus Black)

So after a crazy night in Glasgow on Saturday we have a great start to this new week with our latest E.P on Octopus Recordings Black Label.

It is a huge honour for us to be releasing music on Octopus, the labels owner Sian has long been an inspiration to us and to have his support is a great feeling. This E.P is being released on Octopus Black which is a new sub label set up by Sian for special edition releases. We spoke to Sian about the release and Octopus Black, he told us “basically the idea is to present it alongside the original Octopus as a more stripped down and afterhour feel. This release fits perfectly into that area, slightly dark, ghetto bass and watertight production. Something a little more for illegal techno party rather than established main room club” We look forward to seeing what else is in store for Octopus Black!

If releasing on one of our favourite labels wasn’t enough we have also been fortunate enough to have Pig & Dan on the package with a HUGE remix of SynthesiZe. We couldn’t be happier with how the mix turned out and it certainly raised a few smiles and fists when we dropped it at the weekend! Right, enough talk check out some short snippets of the three tracks below.

11.4Fractious – Rift Theory (Trapez)

Fractious Rift Theory

Well the weekend has almost arrived and we are looking forward to our gig in Glasgow for the Pyramatrix boys alongside Harvey Mckay on Saturday!

Obviously we are on the lookout for some bombs to land up in Scotland with and we have a found a few gems, one of which is this slice of techno from Northern Ireland’s Fractious.

Once again Trapez are on form delivering a very strong E.P here with some great remixes included from Frankyeffe, Luigi Madonna and Danilo Vigorito. You should check out all of the tracks on the E.P but for us the track “Rift Theory” really stood out. It’s the slowest track on the E.P at 123 bpm but it still packs a serious punch and has a really solid groove. This is the first time we have come across Fractious but we will be sure to keep an eye on his future productions and we are sure you will too after listening to the E.P. We also love the Luigi Madonna remix. It will be getting a few Scottish ravers whipped up into a frenzy on Saturday night, that’s for sure!. Check out both the original and remix below!

9.4Ron Carroll – Brighter Day (Ron Costa Remix)

Ron Costa NOYZ

We are still here guys! We have both been on well earned vacations but we are back and ready to provide you with new and most importantly AMAZING techno!

As you must have gathered we are very big fans of a certain Frenchman named Ron Costa and as I have just arrived back from Paris I thought it was only right I share his latest BOMB release. This time it’s a remix for the legendary Ron Carroll.

You will know what to expect by now. A solid but skippy groove, a growling low end and and an atmosphere that just draws you in and leaves you wanting more!  Ron has used the vocal just enough to pay homage to the original but not step away from his usual style. We love the dark bass stab that acts as a hook throughout the remix. Ron really adheres to the phrase simple but effective. He always uses a minimal amount of elements but they all work in harmony with each other. There is an art to that form of production and he has certainly mastered it!  Enough talk, here is the remix!

26.3Jose M. & Tacoman – Kick The Warehouse E.P (Trapez)

Jose M & Tacoman Warehouse E.P Trapez NOYZ

Jose M. & Tacoman – Kick The Warehouse E.P (Trapez)

What a way to start the week with the latest release from one of our favourite labels at NOYZTrapez.

In our opinion Trapez are one of the most consistent labels around, Always pushing new and exciting talent whilst managing to keep the quality at the highest level. The label has a real identifiable sound and has carved out its own place in the underground which is very difficult in a world where running a label is accessible to all. In case you missed them check out two other recent releases on the label that we have supported from our good friend Arjun Vagale and also this awesome E.P that we posted about from Italian producer Nick Olivetti.

This latest E.P from Jose M. & Tacoman has all the usual Trapez ingredients, heavy drums, a ferocious low end and most importantly plenty of groove. We have been keeping our eye on these two Columbian producers for a while now. As described in their biography, Jazz, Funk and Soul are their guns to flood the dance floor. They definitely live up to this statement. We see a bright future ahead for these guys!

The E.P consists of 3 tracks titled “What Are You Watching”, “Warehouse” and “Kick This”. It’s a solid affair all round so we thought it was only right to give you a taste of all 3 tracks.

23.3Mladen Tomic – Dance Of Shadows E.P (SCI+TEC)

Mladen Tomic Dance of Shadows EP SCI+TEC Artwork NOYZ Audio

Mladen Tomic – Dance Of Shadows E.P (SCI+TEC)

SCI+TEC return with yet another huge release and this time it’s Bosnian rising star Mladen Tomic at the helm. We have come to expect high quality releases from SCI+TEC but the music coming from the label seems to be getting stronger with each release. Many young producers look up to Dubfire and it’s a testament to his character that he recognises this and gives such a great platform for them to be able to showcase their music and talent. Dubfire has a great system of being able to test out many of the demos he gets sent for the label during his rigorous touring schedule. This allows his to see first hand which tracks are really working with the crowd which we are sure is playing a huge part in why SCI+TEC is so formidable as a label right now.

Mladen Tomic fits into the above category perfectly. Dubfire has been a long time supporter of Mladen’s music and so it was just a matter or time before Ali picked up an E.P for SCI+TEC. It was definitely worth the wait and we feel this is without doubt some of Mladen’s strongest work to date! He has been steadily building a solid fan base over the last few years with an array of impressive releases on labels such as Octopus, Terminal M and of course his very own Night Light Records which he runs with his close friend and fellow Bosnian Sinisa Tamamovic. This feels like another step forward for Mladen and it’s great to see his hard work and determination paying off and we are looking forward to seeing him progress further!

Its rare for Ali to pick up 4 tracks for an E.P on the label but we can see how he would have had a hard time turning down any of the bombs on offer here. All 4 are perfectly crafted techno records that have Mladen’s signature groove all over them. We agree with Ali on the lead track though, Fittingly titled “First Choice” is an absolute monster, we dare you to try and sit still whilst listening to it!.

22.3Johnny Kaos, Hollen – Kripton (Original Mix) [Suara]

Johnny Kaos, Hollen - Kripton (Original Mix) [Suara]

Gearing up for Friday night we here at NOYZ thought it appropriate to smash down the weekday doors to enjoy all the fruits that the weekend has to offer! And who better to do that than Hollen and Johnny Kaos?

Hollen is a fast rising star of the underground, coming out of Napoli he has developed as an artist in a city that is teaming with creative life. Since his first release in 2008 Hollen has been on a roll, constantly developing and refining his sound and taste in Techno. He has released on the mighty Kling Klong, Bla Bla, and Trapez Ltd. Here Hollen teams up with fellow Italian native Johnny Kaos, who has been on a tear releasing music with the likes of SCI+TEC, KD Music, and Amazing Records. Phew!

This track is from Hollen’s EP ‘Techno Tools Vol.2′ out now on Suara. The track is called Kripton and is everything you would expect from two young Italian producers; powerful, relentless, and big room swinging Techno! Rides, snares, and non-stop emotion filled pads carry this groove into definite peak time territory.

18.3Label Spotlight – Rawthentic Music

Rawthentic Music NOYZ Audio

We are really pleased to welcome Carlo Lio‘s Rawthentic Music for our latest Label Spotlight at NOYZ. Carlo kindly took the time out ahead of the latest release on the label by Bimas to answer our questions and give us an insight into what the future holds for the fledgling imprint.

Hey Carlo, First of all, thank you for taking part in our label spotlight feature here at NOYZ. As you have probably seen from the site we are huge fans of your music and Rawthentic so its a great honour to have you grace our pages!

No problem! Thanks for the support!

1. Rawthentic was created in 2005 by Nathan and Jason Borato. You soon joined forces with the brothers. How did that partnership come about?

Well Nathan was one of my fav djs and still is. I used to go watch him back in the day before I even had my first gig. We became really close over the years and shortly after he started Rawthentic I was thinking about doing the label thing to as well. So thats when he asked me to jump on board and I did.

2. How would you explain the musical direction of Rawthentic and how do you think that has developed over time?

Well Rawthentic I feel really sticks to it’s guns. Especially over the past 3 or 4 years where I feel it has really came into its sound. It def. emphasizes on the word RAW and the music bleads it. Nitty Gritty stripped down chuggy sexy dark hypnotic house & techno and everything in between.

3. You must receive a lot of demos. What advice can you give to producers who would like to get their music signed to Rawthentic?

 We do receive TONS of demos and its absolutely impossible to listen to the all. The best thing I can say to these new cats who are looking to be on the label is “Listen to the Label” then decide if you fit or not. It would make all of our lives much easier. 97% of the demos really dont fit, and its something every artist should know when sending music to any label.

4. You have obviously kept a consistent release schedule with over 70 releases so far. What have been the biggest challenges facing the label over the last 7 years?

 Well I would def say the biggest challenge for the label is myself. My career is obviously my priority so having to focus on that sometimes takes away from the label. With all the touring and gigs its not easy to give RAW the full focus I want to. But this is def changed and now with some help the label will get the full attention it deserves and we are pushing extra strong from here on out!

5. We noticed that you still sell your releases on vinyl. Do you do this for every release and what are your thoughts on Vinyl as a format moving into the future?

 We do not do this for every release. The vinyl world is still a diff ball game compared to the digital world. Theres artist that you see sell tons on beatport but wouldnt sell much on vinyl. As for the future of vinyl. I can only see it getting better. It never died as people say it did. Maybe went down hill for a minute but it never left us. I still have the warm feeling inside when holding my own release on a record and i think many feel the same way.

6. What are your thoughts on piracy from a labels perspective and do feel that the problem is worsening?

 My thoughts are simple. IT REALLY SUCKS!! But I am a realist and I know there is nothing that can be done about it. It is what it is and i dont let that problem get in head. Its a shame because we all work so hard as producers and put in obscene amounts of time to give people our art and within minutes have it online for free, but again; the issue it to out of hand. I dont know how much worse it can get but I def dont see it getting much better.

7. How do you find the time to manage running the label whilst also touring the world and having your own individual release schedule?

 Yea I sometimes ask myself the same thing. Up until a few months ago I was doing all this myself. Needless to say its been everything but easy. But I love the label and I love this game and thats what it really comes down to. I make time.

8. What are your plans for the future for Rawthentic?

Growing the label is def always the goal. But eventually I would  like to start with Rawthentic Parties when the time is right and the label has reached that level. But my main goal is to keep releasing quality music I love and the RAW followers love.

9. Can you give us any information about future releases and any new producers that you are working with that we should look out for?

 Some artists you will see upcoming on the label are / Figuera & Obando, Technasia, Onno, Bimas, The Junkies, Myself, Saso Recyd Clio.

As for myself I have some new things up on Mindshake, Scitec, Saved, Rawthentic … but there will be much more.. Now I am finally back in the studio, so that list should grow :)

10. This is probably the most difficult question of all but is there one particular Rawthentic release that is your favourite?

Def a diff Question but i would have to say my fav release is Clio – Your Eyes w/ Leon remix. Just cant get enough of it.

Thanks again Carlo!

Check out the latest release on Rawthentic by the very talented Bimas. A very solid E.P with two strong remixes from Onno and Nikola Gala.
