Having emerged from the Canadian and Berlin house and techno scene, 33 year old producer and DJ Noah Pred gives us a cosmopolitan taste and an urban feel in his new track.
With use of 808 sounding drums and phasing, robotic and nasal sounding synths, it’s easy to feel lost within the late 1980s/early 1990s. It’s a reminder of the music that was played during the early days of acid house. For a DJ and music producer that has played an active role within dance music for over 10 years, it wouldn’t be surprising if there was an acid house influence. And behind the influence, perhaps it was the transfer from one continent to another.
Overall, Find Your Way is a clean minimal track that includes a variety of glitchy, blippy and futuristic sounds. There is even use of a vocal sample that’s been given a run through a vocoder. It’s catchy and the structure builds steadily. As the track builds the combination of all instruments each stand out. There is a great deal of space between instruments in the mix. It would be interesting to see how Noah Pred would mix this in to other tracks.
If the minimal, acidic, techno feel is your style of music, Find Your Way is to be released on 9th July (Affin).
