With a great EP released recently on Cirrus’s Terra Null imprint and plenty more beats to come in the new year, Noh Vae is definitely a man to watch in 2017. We caught up with the young producer to find out more about his Italian heritage, favourite studio tools, and musical influences.
Given that all three artists involved in the latest release for Terra Null have contributed mixes to the Dojo Mix Series, it probably comes as no surprise that the release proved to be right up our street!
Label boss Cirrus turns in two tracks for the remix treatment; on the A side Fearful dishes up a menacing new mix of Diacria; throbbing bass, rapid fire staccato percussion and tons of atmosphere on this one.
Not to be outdone, Fuj keeps things gritty and ominous on the flip with a creeping remix of Angel. The progression on this one is fantastic, particularly the eerie synth melody that ramps up in the second half of the tune. Wicked stuff; check out the clips below and hit up the Terra Null Bandcamp to grab this right now.
Following hot on the heels of our last mix from Fuj, Terra Null Recordings boss Cirrus steps up with the 25th instalment of the DNB Dojo Mix Series! Whether via the excellent releases on Terra Null or his other work for Terabyte, Nurtured Beatz and AutomAte, Cirrus has been making waves within the dark D&B world for a couple of years and that looks set to continue.
His selection for DNB Dojo features new dubs from the catalogues of Terabyte, Alchemic Breaks and Terra Null alongside a host of Cirrus productions and beats from the likes of Ruffhouse, Red Army and Skeptical. Militant head nodders and grimey textures all the way on this one.
Fresh from some cracking collaborations with Red Army, Epilleptech brings his creepy halftime styles to Terra Null with four fresh new tracks full of character and atmosphere.
The running theme on the EP is definitely darkness, fear and danger, telling sonic tales of aggravation, withdrawal and isolation via the medium of heavy kicks, creepy pads and distorted bass. The results are impressive, making great use of intricate percussion and at times dissonant sounding chords. If you have a taste for the leftfield and an appetite for the darker side of human emotion, you should definitely check this release out.
Check out the clips below and look for the EP dropping from Monday at all good digital stores.
The latest release on Cirrus’ Terra Null Recordings imprint comes from Romanian producer DYL who brings an experimental sound to the table, blurring the lines between techno and D&B. Macelarie kicks things off with a weird rhythm which just refuses to drop the kick drums where you expect them to land, set to a rich texture of atmospherics. Occultism straightens out the groove a bit, keeping things pretty dark and ominous as it drives along at a steady half-time gate.
Signal 1 amps up the industrial vibes, with static and crunchy drum impacts pervading the mix to great effect. Last but not least Galleria sees DYL teaming up with Mauoq for a slice of moody halfstep punctuated with jungle style break fills. Tasty stuff! Check out the clips below and look for this one from April 13th.
