We’ve known Party Ghost to be incredibly well-versed in producing electronic music, but his latest compilation just might be the greatest testament to that statement. Once a steady crafter of explosive and exhilarating productions ranging from electro and dubstep, to mid-temp and mash-ups, Party Ghost has flipped the script with the delivery of his recent EP, ‘VPR’.

Spread over four productions, ‘VPR’ is an idyllic example of how a producer can evolve and transform their style and sound to create works of music that still have the capacity to grab and engage their listeners. While ‘VPR’ doesn’t quite have your typical Party Ghost electro stompers, it is nonetheless filled with moving, emotionally rich and lustrous arrangement of electronic sounds from emotive vocal bits, stirring hi-hats, and punchy snares to deep kick drums, burst of spirited melodies and anthemic breakdowns. Whether this is a new direction for Party Ghost or an simply experimental EP, we’ll take it either way, with pleasure.

This year we have been delivered a handful of album releases from some of electronic music’s top performers, from The Glitch Mob and Big Gigantic, to Gramatik and SAVOY. Yet in the midst of all those compilations, it should be argued that The Noisy Freaks‘s highly anticipated ‘Straight Life’ album rivals the recent albums of those previously mentioned artists, and perhaps even surpasses them in the level of musical complexity, diversity, and ingenuity that it embraces.

‘Straight Life’ was recently released via Tasty Records and yes, it will undoubtedly receive less attention than Big G’s ‘The Night Is Young’ and The Glitch Mob’s ‘Love Death Immortality’. But if you take a deep look into what ‘Straight Life’ has to offer, you will most likely find that it has much more to offer than the albums currently creating a buzz in the mainstream realm of electronic music.

Spanning eleven, full length and meticulously polished productions, The Noisy Freaks’s ‘Straight Life’ album is by far one of the most diverse and unique releases that has surfaced in 2014, and is easily the most advanced release, technically and musically, that the duo has put out in their entire career. ‘Straight Life’ literally offers something for every electronic music listener, satiating cravings of progressive and electro-house fans to dubstep and glitch-hop aficionados. With that said, it is ill advised to pigeonhole any piece of this compilation into a genre as it embraces influences from turntablism, swing, drum and bass, funk, soul, house, hip-hop, disco, and so much more.

A riveting chef d’oeuvre, ‘Straight Life’ epitomizes and embodies what an all-encompassing amalgamation of musical styles fused into an electronic music overtone would sound like, and in a world where free music prevails over priced music, this is the ultimate exception as there is no price-tag that could truly reflect the value of what The Noisy Freaks have birthed with ‘Straight Life’. Their debut album is available now on Beatport, iTunes, Bandcamp, and Spotify, courtesy of Tasty Records.
