Bart Skils – Shantaram E.P (Break New Soil)

Bart Skils returns to Gregor Tresher‘s label Break New Soil for a ferocious E.P made up of two straight bombs made strictly for the dance floor.

We always look forward to new music from Bart, his tracks have an extremely defined and unique sound that always cause mayhem in the clubs. We have witnessed this many times and we are pleased to say these two latest tracks continue this theme, both tracks are full of weight, power and most importantly groove! The drums and bass are almost welded together to create a wall of sound in the low end that really needs to be heard on a huge sound system to be appreciated to the fullest. We can certainly see why Bart has established himself as one of the biggest Techno DJ’s in Holland, his club night Voltt in Amsterdam has built up a huge following and we have heard great things about his ‘Voltt Loves Summer’ outdoor festival which is located on an old shipyard with 15,000 ravers going crazy! Sounds like our kind of party!

As always Gregor Tresher knows how to spot a big record and Break New Soil seems to be pushing the boundaries and really promoting a future techno sound that involves young and exciting new talent. The release schedule for Break New Soil seems to be about quality over quantity with each record coming out on the label of a consistently high standard. We love the artwork too!

We thought we would spoil you to two tracks today so check out the full E.P below!…..

16.2Mr. Bizz – Memory Lost (SCI+TEC)

Mr Bizz - Memory Lost SCI+TEC NOYZ Audio

Another killer release from SCI+TEC and this time Mr Bizz are at the helm to deliver a huge slice of peak time techno with this track Memory Lost.

Brothers Fabrizio and Matteo Floris aka Mr. Bizz have established themselves as certified bomb makers amongst many of the techno elite. They have gathered support from Richie Hawtin, Sian and Dubfire to name a few and its not hard to see why when you listen to their dark and twisted take on techno. They have created a unique and trademark sound that has found a home with many of the most respected labels including Octopus, Suara and now they arrive on SCI+TEC for their debut release on the label.

Memory Lost is the third track on the Reversion E.P that was released this week. We received the promo a couple of weeks ago and whilst all three tracks are solid it is this track that really stood out for us and will be a regular in our sets for a while to come! The track is laced with a constant atmosphere that sits above the dark and chunky drums creating an air of tension throughout. It really gets going when the dark percussive synth stabs enter the fray to take the track into an even darker and more hypnotic territory.

Check out the track below.

11.2Various Artists – Swedish Silver Volume II (Drumcode)

Drumcode Swedish Silver volume 2 NOYZ Audio

 

Adam Beyer‘s label Drumcode released the second instalment of the Swedish Silver compilation series today. There has a been a huge amount of anticipation for this release and we can see why. It really showcases how much techno talent Sweden has produced and is a fine testament to what Adam Beyer has built with the label. Compilations can often be tricky, sometimes you get the sense of filler tracks that just make up the numbers but there is no sign of that here with 8 solid peak time bombs that all deliver and pack a serious punch. You only have to look at the names involved to have an idea of the quality to expect but as soon as you start to listen to the selection you will hear any expectations you had are reached and then some!

It’s very difficult for us to pick one particular track from this bunch but if pushed we would have to opt for the lead track by Stockholm based Mikael Jonasson titled “Benefit Of The Doubt”. It’s an intense track that bursts with energy whilst constantly building and maintaining an air of tension that really had us hooked on the first listen. The clever melodic bleeps swirl over a dark soaring bass that just smacks in all the right places. The drums are very tight and we love the off beat snares that hit hard and help keep the track grooving through the various sections.

See if you agree with our choice by checking out clips of the whole compilation on the Drumcode Soundcloud below.

The compilation is available to buy on Beatport now. Just click here

Fabian Argomedo & Altamirano – Spark E.P (KD Music)

The latest instalment from Kaiserdisco‘s label KD Music is provided by Fabian Argomedo and Altamirano.

KD Music has been responsible for some of our favourite releases here at NOYZ over the last 6 months. You may remember we featured Alex Costa’s massive Night Garden E.P on the label last year. If you missed it you can check it out here. The label seems to be really growing and also nurturing a lot of very talented up and coming producers who obviously take a lot of inspiration from the huge grooves of Kaiserdisco themselves.

Young Chilean producer Fabian has been steadily developing his sound and this release on KD Music really seems to signify him finding his style. We are looking forward to hearing what else he has in store to follow on from this release. We can’t find too much info on Altamirano but if this E.P is anything to go by we are sure you will be seeing and hearing more of these two producers very soon!.

Our pick of the three tracks on the E.P is the title track “Shake”. It has an infectious groove with plenty of well placed live drums that keep things interesting . The marimba style lead really works to build tension in the breakdown before the track comes in full force with a dark and dangerous bassline that really solidifies the groove. The vocal chops finish things off perfectly and it all just works to create one massive BOMB!

 Harvey Mckay – Shake E.P (Cocoon)

If you read these pages regularly you will be aware that we LOVE huge driving techno and so what better way to start the week off than this incredible E.P from Glaswegian Harvey McKay for Cocoon.

We are not alone in our admiration of Harvey. He has released music on respected labels such Soma, Saved, Drumcode and now returns to Cocoon for his first E.P release on the label. His first outing on Cocoon was in December of last year when his track “First Strike From Mars” was included on the awesome Dots & Pearls 2 compilation. We are always huge fans of the music coming from Cocoon but the releases just seem to be getting stronger and stronger at the moment. There is a lot of amazing music coming out on the underground and Cocoon are obviously playing a big part in making sure the music has the right platform!

Back to this release all 3 tracks on the E.P are monsters, perfectly crafted techno that just keeps driving and building energy. Harvey has a distinct style that you can hear throughout all of his productions but he still manages to stay creative and ensure his sound never gets tired. One thing that remains constant at all times is the high amount of energy and tension that flow through his tracks. There are always clever and unique ideas and he obviously puts a huge amount of time and effort into each track ensuring he maintains his usual high standard.

Check out some short clips of the E.P below.

Its quite fitting that Harvey dropped this E.P today as we can also announce we will be supporting him at Pyramatrix in Glasgow on Saturday 13th April. Make sure you come and have a rave with us if you are in the area! We will be posting the full event details on our WHYT NOYZ page very soon so keep an eye out!.

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!

You can purchase the full E.P including some great DJ tools on Beatport by clicking here

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.

30.1Sinisa Tamamovic – Trip To Jungle (Night Light Records)

Sinisa Tamamovic Trip To Jungle Noyz Audio

Sinisa Tamamovic is proving to be one of the most consistent producers in Techno. With a long list of admirers including Dubfire & Richie Hawtin, Sinisa has steadily honed his craft and created a unique stamp that consists of gigantic drums and even bigger bass. His tracks are made for the dancefloor and that is exactly where we want to go when we listen to the track we are featuring today titled “Trip To Jungle”.

In 2012 Sinisa released music on heavyweight labels such as SCI+TEC and Plus 8 but this release sees him return to his own label Night Light Records that he runs with his close friend and fellow Bosnian Mladen Tomic. Night Light is fast becoming one of the biggest labels in Techno and if you take a listen to the back catalogue you will hear why. Every release is consistently strong and these guys really have a solid brand and sound that they are developing with the imprint.

The release is a two track E.P. Both tracks are huge but its “Trip To Jungle” that is the one for us! Check it out below.

24.1Fabio Florido – What We Think E.P (Selected Records)

Fabio Florido – What We Think E.P (Selected Records)

We love exposing new talent at NOYZ and we are very happy to bring yet another Italian producer to your attention!. Fabio Florido is the man in question today and he has delivered a BOMB E.P on Selected Records.

We have been keeping our eye on Fabio’s productions for a while and have heard his sound develop and progress with each release. We really feel he has delivered his best work yet with this selection of tracks. The E.P is a well balanced affair which spans from warm up material through to peak time techno.

The lead title track “What We Think” is an atmospheric monster that is made for big, dark and sweaty rooms. It has already received support from Richie Hawtin who obviously agrees with our opinion on Fabio! Then you have “Finger of Yod” and “Rain & Sun” which are slightly more reserved and focussed on the groove but still very dark and enticing none the less. Our pick of the bunch is “Black Dot”. The bassline is infectious whilst the drums really form a solid groove that would keep even the most tired legs moving at 6 am in the morning.

Check out  a clip of Black Sun below.

22.1Fer BR – Can You Hear It (Waveform Recordings)

Screen Shot 2013-01-22 at 22.48.31

We said back in December that we were excited to hear new music from this young and very talented Spanish producer Fer BR and we are not disappointed!

He returns with a very solid 4 track E.P on Victor Calderone‘s Waveform Recordings. Even in this short space of time you can hear his sound progressing and he is carving out a sound that in our opinion stands up against some of the most respected producers in Techno. You can hear his attention to detail and he creates a great atmosphere and groove throughout the tracks.

We chose the lead track from the E.P titled ‘Can You Heat It” to feature today. You can check it out below but make sure to check the rest of the E.P as the standard is very high throughout all the tracks!
