    A classic. By a classic.

    Mr. Oizo - Flat Beat

    My mind is still blown from Gui Boratto’s EZoo set. Fortunately, the Brazilian minimalist just released a new album this week. I haven’t had a chance to listen all the way through, but the final track This Is Not The End steals the show for me. It has a familiar Gui Boratto tone and features the beautiful buzzing voice of Luciana Villanova, who many may recognize from some of his other tracks. Different than No Turning Back and Beautiful Life though, this track is stripped of any real climax. It is a musing walk through confusion, nostalgia, and hope… just how I like my Gui Boratto music.

    I love this track.

    The newest addition to Boys Noize Records… SCNTST

    From the BNR blog:

    Our youngest signing at the tender age of 17, the future for Bryan Müller is open as the Serengeti – but we do know that no matter where he goes, he will end up becoming a very influential superstar producer. It’s quite clearly in his blood. Some people are just born with it you know? That extra spark of talent that most of us spend years of our life trying to find and achieve, or may never in some cases… – SCNTST has it right there and is utilising it to it’s full potential. He only picked up Ableton last year (!) and since then, in that miniscule amount of time, has developed a unique and super fresh sound like no other. He dubs it ‘Advanced Techno’.  After several recommendations on Twitter, SCNTST contacted Boys Noize with his music and Alex simply had to snap him up to Boysnoize Records.

    ‘This kid needs to be heard’, so watch out for his debut EP release coming out soon on BNR TRAX. We’ll get an interview with him soon too, so you can find out more about one of the future kings of techno music.

    I can never get enough of Gesaffelstein. His industrial sound are so unique and dark and he knows how to effectively use silence in his tracks. A couple months ago, he released his ‘Conspiracy Pt. 1' EP on the prestigious Turbo Records. The three-track EP bangs loud with ominous drumbeats and what I like to call, “sewer swag” (especially on his most celebrated single to date, Hatred). The ‘Conspiracy Pt. 2’ EP, follows up on the first, taking us even deeper into the misfit techno abyss of Gesaffelstein. All three tracks have something new to give. Origins is one long build and brings to mind scenes of a German U-Boat drawing closer and closer to its undersea target. Opr has this twisted crystalline feel during the breakdown, which is a pure spectacle of sound. Lastly, my personal favorite, Viol is just pure mischief. Music well worth listening.

    It doesn’t get more classic than Aphex Twin. Considered one of the most influential electronic artists of the 90’s, this EDM vanguardist has spent his musical career moving through all electronic genres and has influenced a generation of musicians today. Windowlicker is one of my favorites by Aphex Twin. The tone is incredible complicated, evoking feelings of melancholy and anxiousness, yet it remains a totally danceable piece of music. The music video will also creep you out 100%.

    Felguk is responsible for the creation of one of my favorite “pump up” jams in EDM - 2nite. However apart from that track, I hadn’t heard anything else from them until now. Presenting, Blowout. This song is a huge return for the Brazilian duo. The epic trance build will undeniable hook you, but the drop although seemingly out of place, will make people go crazy in dance clubs. See what you think.

    Destructo (Gary Richards) began DJing and producing in the early 90s in Los Angeles, most notably creating RaveAmerica at Knotts Berry Farm. Rick Rubin subsequently handpicked Gary for A&R in electronic music at Def American Recordings, launching a noteworthy career with such acts as Lords of Acid, Messiah, David Holmes, Basement Jaxx, Dub Pistols, God Lives Underwater and founding 1500 Records and Nitrus Records. Destructo returned to his roots in 2007 by creating the HARD concert series. Technology is his newest release and reflects much of his illustrious career in the electronic music scene so far.

    ZZT is an ingenious collaboration between Tiga and Zombie Nation. This powerhouse duo is sure to put out some amazing stuff. Zzafrika is their first single, which is amazing on its own, but the Gesaffelstein remix really does it for me. Heavy industrial drums and a ghostly lead bring this one to that next level shizz.

    This ones a classic and reminds me of nothing else but chugging 1€ bottles of champagne and dancing in European discotheques until 6am. Yep. 

    Inna - Hot (Original Mix)

    This track was released awhile ago, but that doesn’t mean it rock the SHIT out of a dance floor! This is Boys Noize at his best. Nough said. Roll this Jeffer up!

    Upon first listen, this new single from the US-based electronic duo Pleasurekraft may sound somewhat hokey. However I find it to be a really intriguing song in the way it is able to produce the entire feeling of being at a back-alley carnival. Whenever I listen to it I get a very visceral reaction and imagine myself stumbling through a fun house being scared shitless by deranged clowns and other oddities, all the while having this eerily addictive organ grinder tune permeating everywhere. Don’t know if that makes it a good song or not, but something definitely worth a listen or two.

    Gettin all Carny with it!

    Although I’m not really into him, I have to recognize the fact that Carl Cox is a staple of electronic music around the world. At 48 years of age, the “Three Deck Wizard” (a nick-name he earned after spinning on 3 turntables simultaneously during the Second Summer of Love in 1988) has been in the rave scene since its inception. Respect.
