There is no sweeter revenge than that in return for injustice. If any can capture such an emotion through music, it’s the talented maestro Notaker. The breakthrough American producer returns to mau5trap with his newest dark, atmospheric production “Retribution”, a hauntingly cinematic, spacey journey through the process of seeking – and finding – that reprisal. Notaker coaxes the listener through its opening with lilting instrumentals that build to sweeping melodies, all layered under an undulating bassline. The pressure begins to build and one can almost imagine Notaker’s inner warrior preparing for battle, finally triumphing at the track’s driving crescendo. Months after his release “Abyss,” Notaker demonstrates that he’s better than ever by the use of analog sounds in “Retribution”, a rare find in today’s synthesized world. It’s this raw, real quality that gives “Retribution” its undeniably visceral appeal. “This song was a step in a different, darker direction for me and the first time I’ve ever implemented analog sounds into my production process,” says Notaker, shedding further light on his inspiration. “The feeling of the song makes me imagine someone planning revenge on someone for the injustices they’ve done to them, hence the name Retribution.”
David Nothaker – better known as Notaker – has received much acclaim for his musical embodiments of ambiguous natural concepts, like his interpretation of fire through “Born in the Flames” on Armada Captivating, the subaqueous “Abyss” on mau5trap and the mystical “Genesis” EP recently released on Monstercat. With each impressive display of his prowess, Notaker is steadily evolving from talented newcomer to vetted dance music prodigy. He certainly has a unique musical style, one that has been praised by fans and tastemakers alike in his relatively short professional career. Inspired by legends like Hans Zimmer, Deadmau5, and Eric Prydz, Notaker specializes in creating an atmosphere around his productions to immerse the listener in the story of his sound, rather than just the track itself. 2017 has been quite a year for Notaker, and we can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve next.

Shizo van de Sunflower is still making a name for himself after his recent success with the previous album ‘Drone 1.’
To the surprise of many, he has surpassed over 20k streams on Spotify. Not to mention, his DnB single “Changes” is currently the best song in his catalog.

NASAYA’s ‘RÊVES’ EP Is A Love Letter For The Rave
Quickly emerging as a dynamic talent within the Indie Electronic music scene, NASAYA has become a force to be reckoned with. Staggering to new heights, the Los Angeles-based artist and producer joins ODESZA’s Foreign Family Collective for his Electronica EP, ‘RÊVES.’
Following his latest successful single “RUMMELSBURG” and after recently supporting ODESZA on their Last Goodbye tour, ‘RÊVES’ brings a refreshing and immersive new perspective to the dance floor scene in this musical masterpiece. Including four experimental tracks with pulsating beats and rich tones, the EP is sophisticated, yet romantic at the same time. Across the EP, fans can expect a consistent flow of mesmerizing and immersive bursts of energy. Fit for dancefloors from the UK, Berlin, and beyond, the featured tracks include “CIEL,” “REVES,” RUMMELSBURG,” and “TES YEUX” all personalized and best described as a love letter for the rave.
“When I was living in Paris, the change of scenery drew me to start writing some solo music. It felt very liberating for me to write songs on my own. The EP is definitely ‘darker’ and more visceral than songs I’ve previously released. I’ve always wanted to release a project like this because I feel like it’s the only way for me to channel certain emotions – and I feel like this sound is a big part of what I wanted my project to sound like when I originally started it.
I don’t think it’s about anything in particular but it does reflect this state of introspection/dreaminess that I experienced when I first moved to Europe. That’s why I named it ‘REVES’ – it means ‘dreams’ in french.” — NASAYA
With every release, NASAYA simultaneously paves the way for a new and invigorating era for the genre landscape. Combining nimble breakbeats, chopped vocal samples, and complex polyrhythms, NASAYA’s work is more than music but a spectrum of art. Making a name for himself and his eccentric productions, NASAYA has the capacity to show current fans a refreshing sound sure to leave a mark on the rave industry.
