PREMIERE! 'Balance' by Astronoize

Uncompromising techno from JourneyDeep

Track comes from the 'Balance EP', which will be released this Friday

Once more we have US label JourneyDeep to thank for today's exclusive track premiere, as iDJ brings you a first chance to hear Balance by Colorado techno duo Astronoize. Balance is the title track from their new EP of the same name, which is out on Friday (14 December) and which also includes Aviator and Stellar Wind.

The pair say of the EP, and of their fascination with all things cosmic in general: "When you learn about space, you learn about how everything in the Universe is connected. If you really put your mind to it and learn about what’s out there, you can learn about what you’re doing on this planet and where you came from and what the future may hold. It brings us peace."

Based in Denver, Nick Serna and TJ Genay have been DJing and producing together for nearly a decade: they originally formed a rock band in 2009, but soon found themselves drawn towards the techno scene. Unlike our last JourneyDeep premiere, though, don't expect any floaty, melodic vibes here: Astronoize's style of techno is fierce and eyes-down, the kind of muscular, uncompromising grooves that really need to be heard in a cavernous warehouse at 4am for maximum effect.

That's not to say there's no variety on offer: elsewhere on the EP, Aviator is a wee bit mellower than Balance while Stellar Wind adds both a house-y swing and a hint of electro. But it was the sheer balls-out energy of the title track that caught our ears the most. See what you think...
