Artist and producer Notchyy outperforms even the most ambitious of his previous releases with the piercingly ecstatic, nostalgically Deep House, Melodic House/Techno devotion “Gone.”
Ollie Jamieson, a Manchester-based DJ, and producer, is the creative manifestation of Notchyy. Notchyy stands fully formed, having spent his youth front and center at festivals and formative years accentuated by long days and even later nights appreciating music in all its forms.
This self-proclaimed devotee of Anjunadeep and This Never Happened is now ready to pour his unique style of the sun-drenched house onto every listening ear, fresh after a year of reflection and experimentation. Enticingly undefinable but instantly recognizable, here’s a musician reinventing what you thought you knew about the melodic house.
The key is rhythm, and the track’s unmistakable sense of growth stands strong at first on this alone – these layers of motion and the surrounding space and connotations.
That classic house embrace and speed sets everything off with accessible energy and flow from simple beginnings.
Soon after, an engaging bassline adds a layer of warmth and a hint of melody reminiscent of a more contemplative, almost Techno-Esque universe – appropriately injecting that pertinent twist of energy and design.
In short, Notchyy drives with a precise understanding of the scene, the genres at hand, and the talents required to create a mix that holds an audience’s attention from start to end.
The House style is familiar, as are the build and drop. Still, the Notchyy approach has a solid sense of individuality, and the soundtrack masterfully amplifies this presence and character.
Notchyy has created this with a delicate synthesis of influences, eventually drawing from a well of originality that is refreshing to explore. Fans of traditional EDM, Techno, House, Deep House, Melodic House, or even Dance will enjoy this at full power.
Originality coexists with the pure professionalism and perfection of an artist absorbed in his job.
