Nørt – Core Function EP | Out Now

Nort - Core Function EP

My good friends Delicious Music are turning 2 years old! Woo hoo! To celebrate, they’ve decided to start a label. On May they released the latest EP from Nørt any day now the latest from Mr Squatch.

Here’s the rest of the details:

Delicious Music is stoked to kick off the label side of things here at Delicious HQ with Nort. He’s played a big part in getting Delicious Music to where it is today and his persistance in wanting to help create a label with Delicious Music has finally paid off. Into it… welcome to Delicious Music’s first release.

Tek-head and audiologist Nort hits us with his fresh 3 track EP entitled “Core Function”. After many years writing downbeat and ambient under the alias “Invader Tron,” Andrew Snook has finally taken the definitive step away from the lounge, and onto the dance floor with his new LiveTek Project Nort. Churning out minimal and progressive style bangin’ techno, with influences from his ambient glitch days seeping in, the result is both atmospheric and pumping, where ethereal melody lines and drifting synths are boiled down, vaporized, and pumped out the vents, of his mechanical tek driven, steam machine.

The EP kicks off with a minimal number, “CogBit”, this track cruises along with amazing attention to frequency manipulation and is sure to be soon heard on the minimal techno floors around the world. Next up is “Bubble Tek”, a more progressive offering that has already been enjoyed by many at legendary outdoor events Voyage (Chch, NZ) and Rainbow Serpent (Vic, Aus). It’s an upbeat ride with synths drifting through it like a feather floating on the wind.

His signature synthesizer progressions create a musical environment deeply enriched by the wide variety of emotions present in each of his tracks and he guides the listener through all aspects of his constantly dynamic and ever-evolving sound.

Calling all budding music producers! My good friend Invader Tron (aka Andrew Snook), the Delicious Music crew and Tandem Studios are teaching sound geeks like yourself how to make mean electronic beats. I did an audio engineering course with Andrew and he is AWESOME at it (heaps better than me, that’s for sure!). The sessions are well priced and that have a range of amazing gear at their disposal. So if you’re keen keep reading….

Invader Tron says:

Hosted at Tandem Studios and streamed online, Delicious Music and Tron Audio are proud to present ten weeks of electronic music production workshops.
