Seven Ark Noise Of The New
- Words: Cameron Macdonald
- Label: Neo Ouija
"Noise of the new?" Not quite. This racket is the favorite IDM formula of placing the listener in a hallway between hip-hop beats blared through a dying ghetto blaster in a bathroom and lullabies poking in from junior‘s room. Cape Town, South Africa‘s Justin de Nobrega is quite deft in his swordplay-his mulched beats are so humid that they can stain clothes for weeks, as "Separation Device" attests. He fills in the potholes with cavity-cutting melodies-a fine public service that too many drivers will sadly ignore as they travel such a worn street.
