3.1Matt Sassari – Whisper 8 (Potobolo Records)

As the dust settles from a crazy New Years Eve we start to look forward to a new year full of joy, happiness and most importantly TECHNO.

And we hope all of the music that we post on NOYZ this year is up to the standard set by Matt Sassari with his latest release on Ron Costa‘s Potobolo Records.

Its a very strong two track release from Matt but it was the lead track “Whisper 8″ that really caught our attention. It has a dark atmosphere that runs throughout the track creating a constant tension that leaves you gripped with anticipation. The subtle synth lines that come in and out sporadically really give the track an evil twist whilst the live drums sit in the perfect place to form a tight and hypnotic groove.

We are excited to hear more music from Matt this year. Like Ron Costa, Matt is also French hailing from Marseille. Ron Costa has spotted his obvious talent and is giving him a platform to develop and release his music via his label Potobolo which is releasing some incredible music at the moment. At the young age of 20 we are sure that Matt has a very bright future ahead so keep your eyes and ears peeled!

Here is a clip of Whisper 8 on Soundcloud.

5.12Fer BR – Welcome To Rawland (LOCAL)

We get just a little excited when we see a new release from The Junkies record label Local Music Group. Why is that? Well take a listen to the back catalogue that is full of straight up BOMBS and you will understand.

The latest release on the label is the second instalment of the Strange Neighbours compilation series. We supported many of the tracks from Volume 1 of the series which was released last July and so we knew what to expect from Volume 2. To say it has delivered would be an understatement. Its a compilation full of forward thinking techno that packs a serious punch. The tracks all have a serious groove to them whilst retaining that flowing energy that seems to be present across the majority of the releases on the label.

Whilst all tracks stand up we really felt this little gem from Spanish producer Fer BR stood out. We have been very impressed with Fer BR. After following his releases throughout the year we could hear his sound developing and then his E.P release on our favourite Frenchman Ron Costa‘s Potobolo Records in October really stepped things up a gear. This track for Local titled “Welcome To Rawland” follows on from his Potobolo release perfectly and has left us eager to hear what else is in store from this young producer. Its a solid slice of Techno just how we love it, groovy, skippy, dark, you know the drill!

Anyway enough chat, onto the music.

The full compilation will be released on December 10th and you can check out the other tracks on the Local Music Group Soundcloud page by clicking here.

As always please support and share the music!

PEACE.
