Boys Noize, Gorgon City, Anyma, Ben Böhmer and more feature in the September 2021 edition of The House Brew.
House and techno are the bedrock of electronic music. From the deep, dark trenches of barebones techno to the entrancing soundscapes of piano-laden melodic house, EDM.com’s monthly series The House Brew explores new releases from time-tested genres.
Gorgon City premiered the aptly titled progressive house track “Skywalk'' during their live performance for Cercle in Croatia at the breathtaking Biokovo Skywalk, a horseshoe-shaped glass platform at the edge of a cliff that’s 1228 meters above sea level. Perfectly capturing the essence of its namesake, “Skywalk” brims with lush instrumentation and blissful vocal chops.
Gentle keys give way to an infectious, plucking bass on “Merovingian.” Polar Inc. keeps the focus on club-ready grooves, a deviation from his typically moody sound.
The first track off Boys Noize’s latest album +/- (pronounced "polarity"), “Close” is a raging blend of electro and techno. The industrial soundscape draws similarities to the work of Gesaffelstein and sets the stage for the dark, experimental style Boys Noize employs over the rest of the brilliant album.
Memo Rex has birthed a manic techno monster through “Factions.” Brought to life with a pulsating kick drum, eerie samples of breathing, and synthesized growls, “Factions” is relentless.
Anyma, the solo project from Mateo Milleri, one half of Tale Of Us, has teamed up with Afterlife mainstay Kevin de Vries for a rousing remix of KAS:ST’s “Outomorrow.” Fluttering synths shine on the melodic techno tune.
Pre-orders are available now and proceeds will benefit the Scottish Trans Alliance, mirroring the late electronic music producer's Scottish trans identity.
A candid interview with the prolific Blake, whose Grammy-nominated single "Before" proved that his approach to genre conventions is as madcap as it is fluid.
The house and techno showcase will include areas like the Carl Cox Megastructure and waterfront stage, The Cove.
Keeping the kick drum at bay for over half of the track, “Half Life’ is atmospheric and melancholic, absorbing listeners with an intriguing build-up and a deliberate focus on simplicity.
Elderbrook and Emmit Fenn have crafted an uplifting collaboration with “I’ll Find My Way To You”. A simple, striking beat and catchy vocals are sometimes all a song needs to leave a mark.
Evoking images of a flower blooming, Jerro’s “Subtleties” is a breezy, cheerful melodic house tune.
The titular track off Ben Böhmer’s sophomore LP, “Begin Again” encapsulates the ambivalent theme of the album, pairing brooding bass with shimmering synths.
“To me, these tracks represent all the ups, downs, joys and uncertainties of life and I hope in some small way it can serve as a reminder that any challenge in life gives us an opportunity to reflect, reset and go again,” Böhmer said.
"We made ['Sun Came Up'] when we were deep in quarantine, while we were dreaming about the sun coming up, so to speak," SOFI TUKKER said, explaining "it's about being together, in darkness and in sunshine."
Sultry vocals and gentle strings drive their sentiment home while John Summit brings his magic tech house touch to the drop.
