Boomkat Product Review:
Noze are a duo of jazz influenced oddballs from france, storming clubs and leaving behind inspired crowds in their wake, not least their appearance at Sonar 2005. Their live sets revive a long dormant aspect of techno. Nôze is made up of Nicolas Sfintescu (aka dj freak), founder member of Circus Company and Ezechiel Pailhès. Both share hip hop and jazz roots and they let these flow spontaneously and ingeniously into their techno tunes. Support comes from all quarters, as you may expect: Luciano, Akufen, Ricardo Villalobos, Thomas Brinkmann, Ark, Krikor, Cosmo Vitelli, John Tejada and Herbert. Freak is an original hip-hopper - mr 1000 volt, a bulb without an expiry date, Ezechiel studied piano at the academy of music in paris. Raved up basslines and punk funk lyrics make this incredibly reliable dancefloor material.
