Berlin’s Adam Port has had little trouble injecting the industry with a steady output of instrumentally refined club gems over the past several years. But after years of floor-fuelling union alongside the imprint of homeland peer Sven Väth, the German producer knocks out one of his most distinctive original productions to date for Cocoon’s next compilation offering.
Playing out with the scattered energy and inherent attitude of a seedy basement band, Port’s eccentrically minimalistic approach is both tantalizing and refreshing amid the more predictable realms of Electronic music. While his latest mark on Cocoon may lack that incredible key work that has led the German producer to a permanent seat at the table for dignified European House assets, Port’s latest offering is like nothing else currently doing the rounds, making ‘Black Noise’ one of 2012’s quirkiest releases so far.
