NT89 Hears Voices
NT89 - Voices (Original Mix) [Fool's Gold]
NT89 - Hot Signal (Original Mix) [Fool's Gold]
NT89 - Decoder (Original Mix) [Fool's Gold]

We caught wind of NT89 when Foo Boi introduced us to Traffic, his collaboration with BURNS. Now the young star is back, this time standing alone with his debut release on Fool’s Gold Records, Voices.

Voices brings some of the finest techno-friendly electro we’ve seen this year, further boosting the current surge of the subgenre. The title track is so zany that some dudes named The Crookers used this snare-laden tune to annihilate their I Love Techno crowd in Belgium. Voices is followed by Hot Signal, which was described in the official release as “Voices’ chain smoking, Gesaffelstein-loving older brother.” My favorite tune on the release is Decoder, a track that puts on a lighthearted front at first then changes its mind soon thereafter with a blast of dark techno.
