Forgotten Notes return on Renaissance with ‘Resurrect EP’
"We deliberately did three differing tracks. It’s important to us that we connect with our listeners and, as music is so subjective, we cast a diverse net." - Forgotten Notes
Legendary techno imprint Renaissance Records welcome back rising duo Forgotten Notes for a 4-track EP Resurrect EP including three originals and a remix by Loew.
In an age and industry obsessed with pigeon-holing musical genres, it’s always refreshing when something new comes along. And you don’t forget those moments easily; when the Renaissance A&R department heard Forgotten Notes’ first demo early last year, they were taken by both the uniqueness of sound and quality of production. We think they’re a very exciting prospect indeed.
Now, intrepid Swiss duo Ron and Erhan aka Forgotten Notes return with the ‘Resurrect EP’ on Renaissance, which comprises a trilogy of tracks that further highlights their scope and ability. Whether the title record ‘Resurrect’ with its powerful groove and amazingly original, tempo-switching breakdown; the deep house shimmer of ‘Celestial’ or the melodic techno ascent of ‘Radiance’, this is an EP that is as beautiful as it is varied.
You can hear the time and effort that has gone into the project as the guys explain:
We deliberately did three differing tracks. It’s important to us that we connect with our listeners and, as music is so subjective, we cast a diverse net. The trick was to keep it cohesive though, each track may be very different, but our goal was to retain a consistent vibe throughout. – Forgotten Notes
The package is completed by another new Renaissance signing – Loew. Fresh from his breakout success with a bootleg of Leftfield’s ‘Not Forgotten’, he kick-starts his Renaissance relationship with a hair-raising take on ‘Celestial’. His interpretation is a full-on, end-of-set, atmospheric breaks stormer. By adding a vocal and bringing out the track’s central piano riff he delivers something very special indeed and sets the bar for an exciting future. Expect to hear more from him on the label later this year…
About the artists: Forgotten Notes
The story begins at an average Day-Dance Event where Erhan and Ron met for the first time. This small but significant event remains to be the origin of their amazing journey together. While trying to collaborate in different styles of electronic music, they found their nexus in melodic techno. With the abstract ideas and compositions of Ron combined with Erhan’s knowledge and creative mind, they’re not just doing music, they complete each other producing deep, empathetic, and absorbing works of art.
Two lost souls coming together to form the Forgotten Notes.
