AIRWAVE: A legend and a hero among an army of fans from every corner of the planet. Airwave continues to be one of those artists who pours his heart and soul into his music and currently he is churning out top notch cuts for JOOF and Bonzai Progressive. With a career spanning two decades he will be banging out heaps of retro trance classics that will keep the energy levels rising. No doubt he will have some surprises up his sleeve so be sure to check him out at Bonzai Retro.
Australian DJ, producer and Bonzai stalwart Audio Noir returns with his latest studio album Artificial Star. This will be the 2nd album from this guy in the space of just over a year. Almost Famous set the bar high and we have no doubt that this time around will be no exception. We spoke to Audio Noir to get a taste of what drove him during this album’s creation and he spoke about how he wanted to employ a subtle theme of space and philosophy. He simply wrote what he felt and consciously wanted to deliver an accessible album that would appeal across the board whilst maintaining his own artistic desires. He also pointed out that the bass heavy, rich sounding Jazz Noir was his favourite and most challenging track to produce alongside the surreal, prog tech driven Drk Mttr. We have no doubt that this album will resonate among many as it takes us on a deep, dark cosmic journey filled with peaks and troughs that keep the imagination sharp.
Beat Talk Records kicks of with its debut release! Rise And Fall who is already making waves in the progressive house scene with releases on Bonzai Progressive, Perfecto Black, Baroque Digital, Particles and more, delivers two driving late night progressive house / techno crossovers. Powerful low-end, crisp and clean percussions, clever synth work and dark hypnotic feel – this is how we like it at Beat Talk! Expect more of this sound from the label in the near future.
