Octopus Recordings boss Sian steps back into the hot seat for the latest instalment of the labels well respected compilation series. The compilation features many tried and tested tracks that Sian has been hammering in his sets and features established artists like Sian himself, Luigi Madonna Kernel Key through to new exciting artists that he has been supporting such as Timmo and Miro Pajic. We are also fortunate enough to have two of our own WHYT NOYZ tracks included on the compilation and these set the tone for our E.P that will be released with Octopus in April.
The compilation will be released on Beatport on March 18th but in the meantime Octopus have released a continuous mix of the tracks by Sian that is available for free download.
The mix is a ferocious affair that represents the labels sound perfectly and gives you a unique insight into Sian’s style of mixing and track selection.

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!

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

Who wants some Techno for Xmas? We do! We do!
Well Dubfire has delivered the goods right in time with this incredible compilation on his record label SCI+TEC.
SCI+TEC is home to some of our favourite artists here at NOYZ including Carlo Lio, The Junkies, SHADED and obviously Dubfire himself. The label has consistently discovered and developed new and exciting artists and helped them to reach their full potential. The music that we hear from the label is always pushing the boundaries and driving techno forward which is what Dubfire has always done in his own career as an artist.
The compilation spans across many genres and is a selection of both new unreleased music and some classics. Its a really interesting listen and gives you an insight into Dubfires music tastes outside of techno.
You can preview and purchase the complete compilation on Beatport by clicking here.
We couldn’t decide on one particular track as our favourite so we chose TWO! It is Xmas after all, well maybe Xmas has gone but we can drag it out a little further if it means more techno! Thats fair enough right?
Here is our first pick of the bunch from our New Horizons compadre Justin James. Justin is a very talented producer and has some huge releases planned for 2013 so keep your eyes and ears peeled. City Club is a dark stomper that just grooves and kicks in all the right places! Check it out below.
Here is our second selection from the one and only Carlo Lio. This track just has everything and the title is very fitting as it does literally keep grooving from start to finish. Relentless techno at its best and you really need to hear this in a club to appreciate how ridiculously good it is.
