Kill The Noise Drops Debut Album Feat. Dillon Francis, Feed Me & More
After making music for nearly 12 years and releasing under the name Kill the Noise for 8 years, Jake Stanczak has finally released his debut album, Occult Classic. The LP shows off his musicality and versatility far beyond dubstep, the genre that helped to bring the Rochester, NY producer into the limelight back in 2012.
Occult Classic opens with the previously released single, Kill It 4 The Kids Feat. Rock City & AWOLNATION, a rowdy slasher of a dubstep track that will wake you up from the deepest of slumbers while surprising you with its melodies and analog elements. "FUK UR MGMT" sees the producer in an intriguing electro house setting that drops into a heavy dubstep bridge.
Stanczak then reels it in with the soulful "Mine" featuring Bryn Christopher. Set in A# minor to create a forlorn tone, this track is characterized by dark dubstep synths and bright glitch leads. "I Do Coke With Feed Me," is an amusing electronica/electro house song with clean production and don't-take-yourself-too-seriously vibe.
"Without a Trace" featuring Stalking Gia features a somber piano intro that suddenly moves into a vocal-driven tune with sparkling arpeggios and light string synths nicely anchored by heavy, slow-driving drums. "Louder" featuring Tommy Trash dives into an even deeper electro house sound before bringing it back with the silly and gimmicky "Dolphin On Wheels" with Dillon Francis, which the internet has already heard and debated over (mission accomplished).
"Lose Ya Love" is a conglomeration of motown vocals and disco beats flipped into a trap, hip hop track. The LP moves into reggae-turned-dirty-dubstep territory with "Spitfire Riddim" with Madsonik before finishing off with his most ethereal and - appropriately - most profound track, "All In My Head" featuring AWOLNATION.
