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.
You may have gathered that at NOYZ we love groove, bass, drums, clever vocals and just crazy shit in general and this track from Nick Olivetti delivers all of those in abundance. Nick is a fantastic producer and he has really mastered the art of keeping things simple and really focusing on a tracks groove. This is very evident when you listen to one of his tracks as its impossible to sit still! Along with the solid grooves that he provides you get a very crisp and defined sound that just sounds awesome on a big sound system.
This track titled “Olympia” is released on Trapez. Trapez have a habit of releasing amazing groove based records like this that are made for the dance floor, we always look forward to the new releases on the label and you should take a closer look at their back catalogue as it is full of gems like this one from Nick!
Also make sure to check out the other track on the E.P titled “Dr Strangelove” and the excellent remix of Olympia by Will Monotone.

What a bomb E.P to get the weekend started from Alex Costa.
Alex is an extremely consistent producer who always delivers huge tracks that have huge amounts of energy. He really knows how to make a track groove and this E.P is a great testament to that!
The E.P is being released on Kaiserdisco‘s label KD Music. In less than a year KD music has grown to become a widely supported label that is really pushing new producers and great tech house and techno. Definitely a label to keep an eye on if you are a fan of the huge groovy and energetic tracks that we are used to hearing from Kaiserdisco themselves!
We usually pick one track from an E.P but we really struggled with this one as all three tracks are fantastic. It just so happens that Alex handily uploaded a soundcloud track which gives you clips of all three! Check it out below!

After a crazy night watching Hector, Guti, Tini and Mr Loco Dice himself destroy Gibb Street Warehouse in Birmingham last night I am feeling a little bit delicate today. This track however has saved the day and perked me right up ready for round two!
Luca Bear is another producer who we have a lot of admiration for at NOYZ. Luca’s production seems to improve with every release and he has a distinct sense of groove that really shines through in his tracks. He has released music on some great labels including Bla Bla, Viva Music, Robsoul and one of our favourite labels here at NOYZ, Gregor Tresher‘s Break New Soil.
This particular track is a remix for Simone Burrini on Moan Recordings. Moan are a young label that formed at the end of 2011 however they have already grown a long list of admirers for their consistently strong releases. We are definitely on that list and always get excited when they release new music. This particular release doesn’t disappoint, all six tracks are excellent but for us its the huge bassline, off beat snares and overall groove of Luca’s remix that literally had me fist pumping the air whist I was sat on my own writing this post!
Here is a clip of the remix.

Today we deliver a slice of techno from two of our favourite producers – The Junkies
This remix which was released this week on Sian‘s Octopus Records has the trademark sound of The Junkies all over it. Like any track that is produced by these guys the low end of the track thumps hard, whilst the live drums and clever chopped vocals keep the track grooving along nicely. You have probably noticed how much love we have for a certain Carlo Lio and its really no surprise that Carlo and The Junkies are close friends. All are Toronto natives and have become label mates on Dubfire‘s SCI+TEC label.
The Junkies also have their own label Local Music which has seen some excellent releases and is growing rapidly. One of our favourite techno releases of this year, Ron Costa – La Cage Invisible was released on the label in January of this year with a remix from none other than Carlo Lio & The Junkies. Make sure you check it out if you love stomping techno (which obviously you do as you are reading this website)
Right enough chat here is the remix in all its glory.

A pioneer of the new breed in techno music and one that combines his addictive loops and vocal licks with phat chunky grooves that you cannot escape. Toronto’s own techno prodigy has travelled the world making waves using his own productions and DJ skills giving music lovers of all kinds exactly what they want, AN AMAZING PARTY!!
We here at NOYZ find Carlo’s style is so fresh and groundbreaking, put it this way, you know when you are listening to a Carlo Lio track. Relentless, addictive, and powerful.
The track we are supplying you with today is a remix from the man himself.
Using his chunky drums, clever fx, and live sounding percussion against driving bass and hypnotic vocals means you can tick this one off, once again, under the BOMB category!!!
The original track is from Sebrok aka Sebastian Radlmeier, and is coming out on Oliver Huntemann‘s Ideal label which has seen some very strong releases recently, check out the preview here:
You can purchase the full release on Beatport in mid November and we will update this post with the buy links when its released.
As always guys please support and share the music!
It was actually very difficult to pick one track from this 5 track E.P but in the end we kept going back to “That Girl”. The track just flows perfectly and I challenge you to sit still whilst listening to it. It’s just a straight up groover. Make sure to check the rest of the E.P as all tracks are equally as solid in our opinion.

Still one of our favourite Carlo Lio remixes and as its a remix of one of Santé‘s original tracks we thought it would be rude not to post it. BOMB!
