Juno Award nominated Royal Canoe have just released sophomore album Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit via Embassy of Music (EU), Moorworks (Japan) and Nevado Music on September 16th.
The band have since followed up with a wonderfully quirky visual accompaniment to ‘Bicycle’. The animated video by Matea Radic and Bill Acheson perfectly complements the band’s wildly creative take on music, and will have you smiling and/or uncontrollably tapping your feet.
Royal Canoe has always had an intensively rhythmic heart and that is more the case than ever. Their lyrics grow organically out of an addictive percussive flow and the unique topography of each track. Reinforcing their vocal and percussive core allowed them to be more adventurous with experimentation; more determined in their ongoing pursuit of the elusive musicality that can be found in collisions between digital and analogue worlds. In addition to their their usual buffet of synthesizers, effects pedals and homemade samples, late nights lead to to rabbit-holes of attaching contact mics to water bottles to play them like percussion instruments and convoluting synths through beluga whale field recordings.
Praise for Something Got Lost Between Here and the Orbit
“finding new and exploratory ways of expressing their percussive take on indie pop.. the LP finds the band stitching their own creative sonic focus onto the backs of various genres”
Paul Mendez may be a new name on the ever-growing roster at Noise Control but he is certainly no newcomer to the world of dance music. A well-known name in Central Scotland through his tireless work behind the decks, the mixing desk and the mic in clubs, festivals, studios and radio stations for many years, he quickly made a name for himself on a global scale. Seamlessly hopping between Trance, EDM, Urban and Commercial Dance, Mendez has over 300 releases to his name, 2 gold discs, several number 1 hits in various charts and has received massive support and earned the respect of Music Industry royalty. Having either remixed, produced for, or DJ’d alongside, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Calvin Harris, David Guetta, Pharrell Williams, Carl Cox and The Prodigy, they have all hailed his abilities, firmly cementing him as one of the best in the business.
It therefore seems a match made in heaven that Glasgow-based Noise Control, who have grown to become major players in the EDM scene, have secured Paul’s services, and his debut release ‘Rock The Bass’ doesn’t disappoint. This powerful piano anthem will be sure to take the roof off every venue it’s played in with its speaker shattering bass line and stratospheric synths. For all the obvious production involved, it’s simply a straight-up dance floor destroyer from one who knows how to produce dance floor destroyers and it needs to be in any serious DJ’s collection.
‘Rock The Bass’ by Paul Mendez is out now on Noise Control.

Since announcing himself to the world in 2005, Neapolitan music producer Benny Moschino AKA Benny Camaro has touched on everything from Soul, Funk, Rock and House music in his work. The prolific Italian has amassed an impressive discography on a plethora of high-profile labels such as Casa Rossa, IRMA Records, Kluster Records, Tiger Records, Tactical Records, Secundo Records and Bounce Recordings, which have resulted in multiple entries into Beatport charts and aided a burgeoning DJ career. Now teaming back up with French imprint, Jango Music, Benny looks set for further success with new release, ‘Las Dos Lunas’.
Built on top of a deep and funky bass-line, ‘Las Dos Lunas’ features uplifting and melodic chords and vocals, which make this track more than just a certain Electro House favourite with DJs and fans alike. There’s real substance and emotion driving this production, which is now standard issue where Camaro is concerned and perfectly fits Jango Music’s consistency for only releasing the highest quality dance floor fare.
