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.

In his latest musical creation, Flavours tackles Adina Howard’s ‘Freak Like Me’ and flips it into a galvanizing mid-tempo groove, vibrating eardrums with bouncy percussion, seductive vocal clips, atmospheric sounds, and an overflowing dose of funk-laden passages. As always, Flavours has tossed up this release for free, and if it leaves you craving more, be sure to snag up his ‘Juice EP‘ if you missed it.

We have been highly anticipating the release of The Noisy Freaks’s forthcoming album. And while the full release is still pending, the talented French duo has given us a full listen of one of the releases on ‘Straight Life‘. With ‘French Club’, The Noisy Freaks seamlessly deviate from their usual electro-house style and create a booming, funk-landen, and melodically rich mid-tempo gem. Though this is merely one release off the album, if it is any indication of the caliber and quality of the rest of the album, we can’t expect this to be one of the best compilations of 2014. The full release will be out on Beatport, iTunes, and Spotify on the 17th of February, but for those looking to lock it down today, pre-order ‘Straight Life’ on Bandcamp.
