Era One

BY Andrea AyottePublished Apr 23, 2011

Toronto, ON-based Thoughtless label owner, producer and DJ Noah Pred debuts Era One, a 73-minute mix celebrating the first 50 releases on his label. Produced using Abelton Live, Pred seamlessly layers and combines his back catalogue of talent without too much manipulation, staying true to the traditional format of mixing and honouring the diversity of the label's output. From minimal techno to house stompers, the mix starts off with Italian producer Roberto Bardini delivering a mysterious, deep, dub-y techno excursion. Toronto duo Co-op offer "Peace By Piece," an infectious house shuffle with light, melodic tones carrying it through. One of Toronto's leading producers, Arthur Oskan gets showcased in the mix a few times and will be coming out with his debut full-length release on Thoughtless next month. In three years, Thoughtless has released almost 300 tracks and continues to expose the world to a wide array of fresh, new talent. On Era One, Pred successfully highlights his repertoire while demonstrating his meticulous skills as a DJ.
