Sweden’s Noah Gibson first appeared in 2015 on his local imprint Krasch Records, in addition to a release on TANSTAAFL and his own Trouble In Paradise imprint which he runs with Henrik Bergqvist. It’s quite impressive that his sixth release thus far in such a short amount of time lands on Marcel Dettmann’s esteemed imprint. “A New Hope” features six cuts of raw and jacking analogue techno shenanigans which are quite a departure from the label’s usual preference for harsh and industrial greyscale techno excursions. Gibson’s style is somewhat reminiscent of the rusty analogue punk of homegrown heroes like Frak at times; especially on the lo-fi electro funk of “Silent Install” which was real style. However, the high octane clang and clatter of “Origin” and the cyclical thump of “Tilt” (MD Edit) will have the MDR faithful satisfied for sure.
