The fourth release on Parisian record label Chat Noir will arrive by way of eclectic DJ and producer Noiro. The Medievibes EP, as it’s titled, offers a four-song cross section of the French producer’s style of minimal house. It releases in vinyl record format March 5th.
The effort starts off with the laid-back yet dissonant “Reflex Track” before a higher tempo in the lively “Dorée Mie.” On the flip side, “Very Useful Human” exhibits a level of acid-tinged flair, followed by the breakbeat-infused 8 bit stylings of “Trop C’est Trop.” By and large, the Medievibes EP sees Noiro demonstrate his wide range of influences – even in the relatively narrow context of minimal house.
Although a young producer according to the release description, Noiro already boasts releases on respected labels. He appeared on the inaugural 2020 release of Truly Madly‘s Mindhelmet label and his music has been championed by French imprint Deep in Dis intl. Chat Noir, meanwhile, is a relatively new outfit itself, having signed music by Vitess, Occibel and Jo’Z since launching in 2019.
The Medievibes EP is available for pre-order in vinyl format via Chat Noir Bandcamp.
