SANCTUARY

LAISSEZ FAIRE EP 

NCT011 - 7 original tracks

Over the past couple years Sanctuary has made his imprint on the local scene and beyond with some notable DJ performances, a handful of singles gaining international support from a Noctilux beloved in the form of Doctor Jeep; being showcased in a FKOF mix. Along with his tastefully tribal and moody debut EP: ‘Laid Off’ teaming up with contributor and long time friend: wolfcamo. If you’ve ever set foot inside a deep bass arena downtown Calgary there’s an outside chance you’ve already heard a heater or two of his being rinsed from one of our many astute selectors in the city, as much of his work has been appropriately well received within the community thus far.

Turning now to his latest project and first solo EP: ‘Laissez-faire’ a term used in politics that means stepping back, and letting things naturally follow the trajectory they’re meant to take. This concept appears to be unswervingly channeled throughout the record, allowing embryonic ideas to evolve patiently. Painting dark, rudimentary soundscapes- Compiling into conjugated complexity. Sanctuary has been hard at work this year tuning his technical and creative prowess alike and it doesn’t go overlooked. Also, I would be remised if I didn’t mention the mastering work on these tunes are some of the most exceptional I’ve personally heard from a Calgary producer. With heavyweight tracks that span the breadth of all our favourite realms, we are certain that this latest release will have something affable on it for each and every.

 

HALF NORMAL  

FIRST CONTACT

NCT010 - 4 ORIGINAL TRACKS + 4 REMIXES

 

Conjoining the forces of Bambooloo x Method Sound, the product is Half Normal. First Contact is the first release with the project, setting the tone for the sonic territory they will continue to exhibit. The four tracks express a very unique take on a variety of textures and influences derived from dubstep and drum and bass. One of the most unique pieces of music that have come to fruition in Western Canada, 'First Contact' proves that there are no boundaries.

NCT009 - 7 ORIGINAL TRACKS

 

Over half a year in the making, HUSKIE’s debut solo EP as a contributor of the collective: Mr. Melmack has finally arrived and we couldn’t be more excited.

 

Bringing you an assorted compendium of textures, both challenging and accessible. The playtime on these tracks are short and sweet, but the ideas explored within them will insist you hit the replay button over and over.

 

The whole feel of the album reverberates like a planet far beyond our solar system was freshly colonized by a group of belligerent Japanese punkrockers hell-bent on uncovering the best morsels of hentei the universe has to offer.

 

THE COLLECTIVE EP: VOLUME III

 

Our final release of 2015, a compilation of the recent projects we have been working on the later half of this year. Closing off a very inspiring year with a strong piece of sonics.

A CITY OF BRIDGES

INNER CITY LP

nct007 - 11 original tracks + 2 remixes

 

A City of Bridges - real name Robert Albus - joins the Noctilux Collective family with his debut long-player entitled “Inner City”. This album is far more than just a compilation of his works;

With ethereal soundscapes, other-worldly soundscapes and dubbed-out drums with primal, ritualistic time signatures, Inner City tells a vast story...

 

WRECK ROOM

STABLE EYES EP

NCT006 - 4 ORIGINAL TRACKS

 

Producers Ruby and Parks, collectively known as Wreck Room, represent the newly emerging school of talent from the Calgary underground.

Like many current young artists, their vision and sound has been moulded by the global village created by social media’s collision with music.

The Stable Eyes EP, released on Calgary label Noctilux Collective, embodies this. It’s a journey through the past and present styles of the U.K. underground.

Although both artists are Canadian, through virtual explorations of these spaces they’ve crafted sounds true to the source material, and interwoven it with the captivating deep undertones that Calgary house is rapidly being recognized for.

 

WOLF CAMO X SANCTUARY 

LAID OFF EP

NCT005 - 4 ORIGINALS + 2 REMIXES

With such an atmospheric vibe to the entire EP, every track contained within was consciously chosen for a reason. Both Wolf Camo and Sanctuary are budding contributors, and the fact that they collaborated on an album that will most definitely be played out alongside the two of them, means this is only the beginning.
We couldn’t be more grateful to the people that are a part of our dynamic, as well as those that support the community and the residencies that we host. Works such as these are our opportunity to give back to the community. We have a lot of goodies in store for you, so keep an eye out and keep
those headphones on.

THE COLLECTIVE EP: VOLUME II

This is our second installment in the series of Collective EP’s, differing from the last; this release is filled with a touch more bass weight. In the umbrella of bass music where most of us became familiar with each other, also encapsulating a safety blanket of sound in its own, this is Noctilux.

We invite you to listen and gain a further taste of what we are all about by providing our listeners with months of our time and creative effort in one EP.

First on the release, you are introduced to the sound of Wolf Camo’s track “TEK”. Deep bass runs throughout the listen, making for a very interesting experience at 128 BPM. Giving a proper emotion as it pulls through the track, this makes an excellent track for any DJ to slow the rhythm down.

“Jeep Mode” from AdamAllDay follows, an experimental Drum & Bass track that bleeds a feel of adventure. Punching bass, followed by classic break beats greet the listener into the perfect hybrid of the tribal sounds, classic bass music and drum and bass plugging you along.

Trouble Tiger proceeds to bring you “Nomad”, a deep bass track with a very classic feel of the older styles of Dubstep that have quietly submerged below the surface of modern music for quite some time. Nomad brings back that nostalgic sound one that is extremely fresh in our corner of the world when our ears were met with the substantial sounds from the UK. Strong on the low end, meeting you with a harmonious mid range, this 140BPM track is a great segment for the mid section of a DJ set.

HUSKIE throws you Danger, a mixture of bass and trap vibes that continues to bring more nostalgia to some of the freshest sounding blends we saw in its peak in 2012. Very playful and unique samples like lighters clicking and coughing mixed with the punching bass accompanying the whole track. This is one of those tracks that will stick with you, leaving you with an unquenchable thirst for another listen.

Plasm closes the EP with “Decoder”, a track with proper length, proper speed, and an abundance of deep dark sounds dripping with percussion. Decoder has the immediate feeling of being deep in the dance floor at a Berlin nightclub, with the sound engineering and tension to match. An appropriate introduction into the sound of true techno, in our opinion. It brings a very interesting feel contrasting North American styles closely to Europe, Decoder gives you a taste of both, in complete focus.

Please reach out to us with your emotions you felt while listening to this release, Deep sounds spark the imaginations of us, and we hope that is likewise for you.
