Ambivalent – Scorpio E.P (Octopus)

Hey Guys!

Has been a little while but we are back with a bang with this monster E.P from Ambivalent on Sian‘s Octopus Recordings.

Ambivalent has established himself as one of the leaders in Techno. Spending his time between New York and Berlin you can clearly hear how both cities have had an impact on his sound and the approach that he takes to making music. He has created a unique style that flirts across different genres with ease whilst always keeping its roots firmly in Techno. Cutting his teeth as part of the Minus family has given him the platform to bring this uinque sound to the masses of the underground and we are in no doubt his following will continue to grow for a long time to come.

This is his first E.P on Octopus and we are sure its an honour for Sian to have him on the label. Octopus continues to go from strength to strength and when the label can attract such heavy weights as Ambivalent it is clear they are doing something right.

The E.P is a 3 track affair and whilst all 3 tracks are solid and will do damage on any techno floor we have selected Sinduda as our pick!

As always please support and share the music!

27.5Gel Abril – Provocateur / Ue Suala (Be As One)

Gel Abril - PROVOCATEUR / UE SUALA

Gel Abril – Provocateur / Ue Suala (Be As One)

Shlomi Aber is one of our favourite producers here at NOYZ and it just so happens that we love his label just as much. Be As One never disappoints and this latest release from Gel Abril is a fine testament to that.

After impressing us recently with releases on Get Physical and Nic Fancuilli‘s Saved, Gel returns to Be As One with this incredible release. His last outing on the label was the hugely successful “Scene” that sampled Notorious B.I.G.and became a key staple in the sets of many of the undergrounds leading DJ’s. We definitely expect this release to do just as much damage. It starts with a heavy peak time track called Provocateur. It’s all about the groove with this track. We are starting to hear more tribal influenced tracks coming back into the techno scene at the moment and this track is a great example of that. The second track titled “Ue Suala” is a more laid back affair that is perfect for the deeper floors. As always with Gel’s tracks the production is of the highest quality and the grooves are just made to make you move!

Check out clips of both tracks below.

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,

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 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!.

4.3DJ Boris – 2 Me (Octopus)

DJ Boris 2 Me Octopus NOYZ Audio

We have become accustomed to a constant supply of heavy peak time techno bombs from Sian‘s label Octopus and this latest release from New Yorker DJ Boris certainly sits in that category!

DJ Boris has become somewhat of a legend in techno circles and has held firmly to his roots bringing his unique style of big room electronic music to the U.S long before the EDM craze hit their shores. He has held residencies at the key spots in New York since 2004 including Crobar and Pacha and has since travelled the world picking up a vast and dedicated fan base in the process. We were really impressed by his recent release on SCI+TEC titled New Generation and his debut E.P for Octopus follows on from that perfectly keeping the standard equally as high.

Both tracks are extremely solid but its the lead track titled ’2 Me’ that is the one for us. It’s difficult to take a sample from a classic dance record and make it work and sound credible in an underground track but DJ Boris has nailed it to perfection. The beats are dark and ferocious and give the ideal platform for that huge bassline that just roars throughout the track. Definitely one for the big rooms! We won’t spoil the fun, see if you can guess where that sample is from!….

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!

21.2Kaiserdisco Presents KD Music Vol.2

Kaiserdisco Presents KD Music Vol 2 Artwork NOYZ Audio

It’s hard to believe that Kaiserdisco‘s label KD Music is just over a year old. Since the first release in late 2011 Frederic and Patrick have quickly built a reputation for releasing some of the most forward thinking techno you will hear. Whilst using the label as a platform to release their own music they have also pushed very exciting artists such as Hollen, Arjun Vagale and Alex Costa into the limelight. The latest release on the label is the second instalment of their Kaiserdisco presents KD Music compilation series.

The compilation is a mixture of tracks from KD music roster artists, friends of the label and tracks that have been sent into the label for consideration. All the tracks have been tried and tested by the guys themselves and you can hear the full track listing in a continuous Kaiserdisco DJ mix that is available to purchase with the package. We highly recommend you check the mix out!!

So as usual we struggled to pick one track from the compilation so we chose two!

Our first pick comes from Mladen Tomic with his remix of Arjun Vagale & Tim Richard‘s track ‘Tonkatsu’. Its a huge techno groover with an infectious bassline that we are just dying to hear out on a big system! See if you agree!…..

Our second choice comes from the main men themselves, Kaiserdisco with their retouch of Betoko – Before I Lose Control. This is a little deeper than we usually go at NOYZ but this track more than warrants it,  a timeless record that should get you in the mood for the weekend ahead!
