SIDE NOTE – New EP by Noetik

By Nicola Giovannini

SIDE NOTE EP

With « Side Note », Noetik signs an EP where darkness reveals the full spectrum of its vibrant and luminous emotional facets.

Opening the journey, ‘Grey Note’ stands out as an outstanding mixture of deep kicking bass line, heartbeats-like tempo and spellbinding melodic synth textures reverberating such as sepulchral echoes of the mind and climaxing in perfect synchronism to create an immersive silver bullet for the dance floor.

The second cut of this EP, ‘Purple Note’, is a masterfully crafted production blending evolving atmospheres, ranging from cinematic ambient to spatial techno and emotional trance elements magnified by a floating classic-like break. A tune managing the perfect and subtle balance between a solid beat-triggering manifesto and a modern dreamy state of mind.

With ‘Black Note’ which was released as a NFT exclusive, Noetik’s vessel goes deeper into underground sepulchral industrial-spirited techno flavors with a straightforward percussive riff and hypnotic sound layers.

Finishing off the voyage in a brilliant manner, Fresen’s remix  revisits and brings “Grey Note” into a magical dive through deep lush melodic synth arrangements, a perfectly inspiring breaks groove and the punctual featuring of introspective and silk lyrics which feeds the tale with a shining human sense and color in timeless fashion.

BETWEEN MY HILLS – ALBUM BY SOLEMN EYE

ALBUM COVER solemn eye between my hills

RELEASE REVIEW

“Between My Hills” is the debut album by the cutting-edge producer Solemn Eye, our 70HILLS Label owner.

Between My Hills- ALBUM

“Between My Hills” is the debut album by the cutting-edge producer Marco “Solemn Eye” Macaluso, released on his own label 70HILLS.

Music on this album combines elements of Indie Dance, Down Tempo, Alternative Pop, Deep House, Breaks, Electronica and it’s close in spirit to the 90’s avant-garde melodiousness, space-feeling, vocal expression and the overall sensibility.

All of those elements converge in electrifying and captivating fashion throughout the fourteen tracks of this masterfully produced release. The album is an exciting mixture of autobiography and fantasy, showcasing engaging lyrics and wide range of musical skills. Discussing themes related to love, sex, trust and identity, Marco presents these songs as a confidential collection of deep emotions, each uncovered in a distinctive singing voice featuring JD Davis and Lincoln Paradox.

“Between My Hills” has an outlined and through-composed form, yet it leaves plenty of room for analysis and individual understanding to serve as a topic for free musical dialogue. Dig in!
