Noisia – Split The Atom

Posted on 10 May 2010 by Kavselj

When you mention drum’n'bass to a random person you are almost bound to hear the word Noisia. The dutch trio that started out back in 2003 has been consistently bombarding the scene for the past 7 years and they are not showing any signs of slowing down. With more than 3 years in the making their album entitled Split The Atom is one of the most highly anticipated releases in 2010. It was released on 8th of April with Split The Atom single coming out in late May.

Consisting of 19 tracks and length of just under one hour it takes us on a journey through several different genres while maintaining their trademark sound. Starting off with Machine Gun which was also released as a single a few weeks prior to the album release, they let the listener know that this is only the beginning. Followed by My World, which was edited for the CD release and doesn’t feature vocals from Diana Ross like the original version did, it starts out slow with gentle vocals before unleashing all it’s hidden power upon us. Every few tracks the CD presents us with short teasers (Sh!tbox, Leakage, Headknot etc.) that last around a minute and serve as a showcase of Noisia’s experimental side in various other genres.

Track that bears the same name as the CD probably doesn’t need any extra description. It has been praised ever since it appeared in Fabric Live 40 that was mixed by Noisia and as soon as you hear it you know exactly what it’s all about. Other non-dnb highlights include Alpha Centauri and Red Heat (both released on Divison EP). Then there is one track that takes the “dancefloor smasher” title with ease. Foreign Beggars already collaborated with Noisia on track called Contact and from there on it could only get better. And it did. Shellshock achieves all that in less than 4 minutes. Two absolutely sick drops that will make even the hardest crowd go mental in a matter of miliseconds prove that they haven’t forgotten about all those fans who love Noisia for their dirty and hard hitting trademark sound.
Another highlight is their collaboration with Amon Tobin who is best known for his skill in sampling. Sunhammer is no doubt a masterpiece from a producers point of view, but even average listener can feel it’s power as it strikes with full force.

Overall it’s a very well produced album that offers a little something for everyone. While some might be disappointed by the lack of drum’n'bass tracks, the amount of 1-minute teasers and inclusion of two already released tracks (Diplodocus and Stigma), they really did their best by pushing the rest of the tracks to the limit so that makes up for it. We also have to keep in mind that albums in general are targeted towards wider audience and compromises need to be made. The expectation bar was set pretty high but Noisia once again proved that they deserve to on the top.
