Never judge a book by the dust jacket: Noah Peterson – Champagne Kisses #house #techno

Here’s one of those tracks that makes me remember to beware expectations and give tunes a chance. I was most recently reminded of this by Noah Peterson and his track Champagne Kisses. This came with a tag list of Cosmic gate, ATB, Dash Berlin, Paul Oakenfold, Armin Van Buuren, Above & Beyond, Ferry Corsten, Paul van Dyk, Markus Schulz, Arty, Rank 1, Solarstone, Infected Mushroom, Chicane, B.T., Aly & Fila, Gareth Emery. By and large a list of artists who don’t appeal to me. Too big room and too trance. But I gave this a half-hearted listen. And it turned out to be great.

What we have is a shyly leftfield idm track, full of blips and bloops. A kind of ambient experimental tune that happily ploughs its own furrow. Hard to reconcile with the biog that promotes him as a saxophonist. Nothing of that here, simply clever electronic music that skilfully balances the gentleness of synths with machine music harder sounds.

From the album Baseline 120: Electro Jams
