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.

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!
