Description of Boris Noiz Triptych EP

An outstanding new collection for Yellow Machines from talented Serbian producer Boris Noiz - three fierce and very forward thinking tracks which encompass elements of sci-fi sound design, emotive strings, and drilling dark step hardcore beats with precise edits, all laced with huge gnarling bass. Keeping in line with the label's fusion of old skool hardcore and intricate electronics, Noiz adds a melodic, Detroit techno flavour to the equation. 'Rapid Transitions' opens with mournful, majestic and unresolved melodies, filling the air with a sound that is wistful, innocent yet stone cold alien at the same time. It then does pretty much what the name suggests, dropping into massive beast of a tune, with thick, rolling drum breaks and growling modulated riffs with sharp edits. Rhythmically, 'Symphony Of Collision' recalls his previous work with Excision on 'Force', loaded with whirlwind beats that smash the room but shift slyly to keep you guessing where the next hit will land, while the infusion of icy dark pads points to those subtle Detroit influences. 'Inceptive Point' fuses the Sheffield warehouse bleep mechanics of LFO with the rolling drumfunk percussion of the Rag And Bone roster, adding fills and phrases in an old skool Reinforced hardcore style. This tune will bring flashbacks for those who were there raving in the early 90s, updated with 2011 production. All told, this is a trio of incredible andriod disco pressure, reminiscent in texture to early Metalheadz but with a 21st Century twist; an EP of cinematic hard step at its best, sure to tear up any dance floor.

Kalbata is Ariel Tagar, is a bass music pioneer from Tel Aviv. Regardless of genre, his distinct musical approach comes through in everything he does - a deep affection for the lowest of frequencies and a collection of vintage effects and instruments which guarantee his razor sharp beats will always have a warm analogue feel, floating in a pool of endless ripples and echoes. Kalbata spent the naughties in east London and was a part of the city's squat party scene. His first productions fusing tuff electro bass and techno made their way into Dave Clark and DJ Hell's sets. Witnessing first hand the beginnings of grime and dubstep, Kalbata was taken by these new sounds, connecting the dots between his ravey start and his deep involvement with London's reggae sound system culture. The inevitable link quickly found its way to his own productions and soon enough, his studio skills became in demand with a line of big remixes for artists such as Roll Deep, Spank Rock, Fat Freddy's Drop, Jacoozi, Sunship and more. In 2009, Kalbata was the man behind the mysterious 'Ninja We Ninja' white label, championed by the likes of Toddla T, Benga, and N-Type (who included it in his Rinse:09 mix-CD). His recent dub release on Soul Jazz won support from heavyweights such as The Bug, Freq Nasty, RSD, and Sinden. This year has also seen the release of Kalbata's 'Wallabee' on Double Science, a dark garage chant featuring a brilliant remix by Cosmin TRG. His latest outing, for Yellow Machines, finds Kalbata paying true tribute to his hardcore roots, mixing it up with a dub and future garage vibe, and both tracks have been secret weapons in many DJ sets for a while now. 'Artikal Youth' delivers pure dancefloor damage as a garage shuffling beat builds to the drop, unleashing the heaviest dub bassline that will slay the crowd in any rave, and bleeps work their way in and out of the track to set up a future rolling ride. On 'Helem', staggered 2 step killer tech rhythms offer a glimpse of a twisted vision of future garage. Robotic bleeps and hair-raising wood percussions build up to the drop, then a squelchy and dense bassline winds through the tech infused landscape, where elements of old school hip hop can also be heard.

Label:Yellow Machines
This long awaited three track EP from ScanOne has been getting some heavy rotation in many sets since late last year, and now it's been fully tested it's ready to be unleashed upon an unsuspecting and ultimately grateful public. ScanOne is the production persona of Yellow Machines owner Jude Greenaway, and he's selected this blast of dark, introspective bass-heavy electronics as an intent-declaring opener for the label's 2011 campaign. Nodding to his impressive musical history, the EP kicks off with 'Breedle', fusing Radioactive Man-esque machine funk electro with junglist and hardcore influences. Built around a rolling old skool drumbreak and resonating with warm, pulsing mechanoid basslines, it builds into a driving, darkly epic yet introspective beast of a track, calling to mind late nights and dimly-lit warehouse raves with sour, dissonant bleeps reflecting off the damp walls. On the flip, the mood is different with a dark bashment treatment for 'Feep', as IDM sound design electronics flow through massive 808 bass drums, while brittle wintery melodies and modulated chimes flicker and sparkle amid a dark space of intricately programmed rhythms. Contrastingly, 'In Session' is a mutant hip hop electro track that fuses a pulsing synthetic bassline with dislocated, dub-delayed sampled vocals that would not sound out of place in one of Scanone's infamous audio visual sets. Infused with synth melodies that call to mind old Warp artists like Brothomstates, the track is reminiscent of ScanOne's earlier works on labels like Blase and Combat. Simply put, this is yet another emphatically solid release from an increasingly strong label. All tracks have recently featured on Rob Booth's fine Electronic Explorations radio show, with superb audience feedback.
