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.

Following up last year’s three track ”Lemon” EP, London residing Tim Green returns to the infamous imprint of Sven Väth for an inclusion on Cocoon’s latest 12 track compilation. But having remained fairly quite since last year’s Pete Tong-approved ”In Love” EP for Get Physical, Green breaks the silence with a potent contender just in time for the Ibiza season. Blending subtle keys and an utmostly soulful vocal line for something of a soothing concoction if you will, Green’s return to the forefront may be long overdue, but proves that his quality-over-quantity approach seems to yet again have paid off.
