Published Jul 24, 2015Though his techno sound may channel the traditions of Detroit, producer and UNT Records boss John Norman's roots are in Winnipeg. He's currently gearing up to release his latest EP Republic next week, and Exclaim! is giving you an exclusive early listen to it.
The two-track set opens with "Republic," a mesmerizing 8-minute number that crackles with static and near-silence in places, but always brings the listener back to Norman's trademark dancefloor-ready techno sounds. "Democracy" is another shining example of Norman's knack for creating swirling, rhythm-driven and melodic electronic pieces.
Republic officially arrives on July 27 through Norman's UNT imprint, but you can give both of the EP's tracks an early spin in the player below, right now.
