New music from Noir coming soon
Below you can read the short press for the forthcoming "Done/Undone" release by Noir dropping on September 21st 2018.
In the late 80s I started listening to UK radio stations when I was a little kid and I instantly fell in love with the acid sound and rave movement that was portrayed on those UK dance shows. When I got old enough to attend clubs and warehouse raves to experience the movement first hand it was a no-brainer for me that the music and the lifestyle was my call.
Lately…. in my dj sets and when producing music… I have been time travelling back to those days. Back to how I remember the music i fell so deeply in love with and that is exactly what you hear on this “Done/Undone” release.
For the “Done” track i teamed up with Cari Golden to have a female spoken word and a great message to build the music around.
I always prefer to do original vocal recordings rather than using samples. Cari understood 100% what I was after and I love the lyrics and execution by her.
The spoken word is centered, very clear and deep to contrast the constantly building intensity of the acid patterns and thumping beats.
“Undone” is instrumental and has a more straight forward flow to it.
Its quite simple although the shifting groove patterns might surprise some. I was torn between two different acid patterns and decided to drop one of them as a surprise change. Playing the track in clubs I quickly learned that the change of dynamics had a great effect.
Both tracks have been wrapped in dark-themed chords and atmosphere.
Both tracks have my take on the sound I fell in love with years ago and obviously still love today.
I hope you like what you hear.
