Audio Noir deliver his newest three tracker entitled Pressure as he takes us on a sublime progressive journey. His last outing R3WIND stunned as it brought a bit of old school into the modern era. In comparison we can see what a talent this guy is as he is able to produce top quality sounds for yesterday and today, that is a true gift in the world of electronic music.
First up we have Pressure which takes the progressive sound to the deeper levels. Right from the off we get a cool deep vibe as the bass pulses with the rhythms of the percussions. Intricate patterns are borne out of expertly crafted arps as smooth synth key play out in the background. The introduction of a monster bassline takes the track to a new level and is joined by a superb single note synth that adds a wonderful texture. A short break leads us back into the deep vibes of this track as we get locked in. Absolutely stunning stuff yet again from Audio Noir!
Physical is up next and sets off with a percussion laden intro, this soon expands with the addition of some very cool, almost experimental sounds that blend together beautifully. Brilliantly constructed arrangement with a multitude of sounds that will have you back for more. A smooth deep bass soon joins in as the groove goes into full swing with even more sounds coming into the mix. You’ll find a nice hidden gem late on as a classic hoover style rave sample makes an appearance. This guy just gets better and better!
The Man In The Paper Hat rounds off this superb pack. Straight into a full on flowing progressive groove with phat kicks, crispy hats and some stunning percussion arrangements. The bassline bursts through and grabs you with its throbbing grooves forcing you to move. The track breaks down into a sublime synth sequence with its dynamic signature before we are ejected right back into this full on prog fuelled monster. A definite must have!
