Mastered at Glowcast Audio: Slam – Metro Noir is track of the day on EQTV!

Stuart McMillan and Orde Meikle give EQTV the lowdown on their new release on their singles label Paragraph…

Metro Noir/Variance (Adam Beyer & Jesper Dahlback remix)

Describe Metro Noir/Variance in five words.
It’s another great Paragraph release! Ha ha!

What is it about this record that will appeal to the fans?
It stays pretty true to the sound of Paragraph in general, and Adam Beyer is on board for the remix duties on Variance, which was one of Paragraph’s bigger tracks. He is a big fan and supporter of all the releases so far, so it’s good to have him on board.

How does it differ from your last release?
Well, the simple synopses is that it includes a new original Slam track called Metro Noir which is pretty deferent to most things around at the moment because it has a really strong twisted synth sound, and is not just a collection of drums and blips and noises. The last release was just remixes of our own track Hot Knives, with ourselves and Gary Beck on remix the duties. This EP includes some new original Slam material.

What was the inspiration for this record?
The original track contains a Lynn Collins Sample from our funk collection. I suppose it’s using those elements in a techno record which isn’t often heard, therefore creating something that’s hopefully organic but mechanical at the same time. With Metro Noir it was just an exploration of various synths effects and seeing what happens.

If you had the chance to play this in any club, which would it be?
We’ve played it already in Fabric, Pressure and at the Drumcode night at the Panorama Bar among others…
