31.1Justin James – Shallow Dreamer (SCI+TEC)

Justin James Shallow Dreamer Artwork NOYZ Audio

Our New Horizons buddy Justin James stepped up this week delivering his first E.P for Dubfire‘s SCI+TEC label.

There must be something in the water in Canada. Two of our favourite producers Carlo Lio and The Junkies hail from Toronto whilst Justin comes from the same place where it all began for Richie Hawtin, Windsor. It must be hard not to be inspired when one of your heroes has grown up on your doorstep and become one of the pioneers of electronic music and Justin has obviously fed off this inspiration and worked hard to create his own sound that to put it plainly ROCKS!. This hard work has paid huge dividends with both Richie Hawtin and Dubfire giving Justin’s tracks a massive amount of support over the last 12 months.

We are featuring the lead track from his E.P today titled “Shallow Dreamer”. The track is based around a very hypnotic percussive lead that keeps growing throughout the track but what really does it for us is that deep chugging bassline that whacks you straight in the chest. Very nice work! We know Justin has some very exciting projects lined up for 2013 so keep you eyes and ears peeled!

Also we spoke to Justin and he tells us he is having a release party so if you are in the area click here for event details.

27.12A Transmission (Compilation mixed by Dubfire – SCI+TEC)

Who wants some Techno for Xmas? We do! We do!

Well Dubfire has delivered the goods right in time with this incredible compilation on his record label SCI+TEC.

SCI+TEC is home to some of our favourite artists here at NOYZ including Carlo Lio, The Junkies, SHADED and obviously Dubfire himself. The label has consistently discovered and developed new and exciting artists and helped them to reach their full potential. The music that we hear from the label is always pushing the boundaries and driving techno forward which is what Dubfire has always done in his own career as an artist.

The compilation spans across many genres and is a selection of both new unreleased music and some classics. Its a really interesting listen and gives you an insight into Dubfires music tastes outside of techno.

You can preview and purchase the complete compilation on Beatport by clicking here.

We couldn’t decide on one particular track as our favourite so we chose TWO! It is Xmas after all, well maybe Xmas has gone but we can drag it out a little further if it means more techno! Thats fair enough right?

Here is our first pick of the bunch from our New Horizons compadre Justin James. Justin is a very talented producer and has some huge releases planned for 2013 so keep your eyes and ears peeled. City Club is a dark stomper that just grooves and kicks in all the right places! Check it out below.

Here is our second selection from the one and only Carlo Lio. This track just has everything and the title is very fitting as it does literally keep grooving from start to finish. Relentless techno at its best and you really need to hear this in a club to appreciate how ridiculously good it is.

As always please support and share the music!
