Showcasing suspenseful build-ups and alarming trap drops, New Zealand-based artists CORTR & MICA step up with a blistering New Noise debut “Hurtful Things.”
Since arriving on the scene with an explosive rework of San Holo’s “I Still See Your Face” in 2017, CORTR has quickly proven himself to be one of today’s most exciting emerging bass music artists. His music combines his childhood love for alternative rock and nu metal with his passion for electronic music and hip hop, resulting in highly-charged soundscapes soaked in emotion. On “Hurtful Things,” CORTR is joined by rising producer MICA, who has released his own official remixes for the likes of Galantis and Ian Munro. Through combining MICA’s vibey sound design with CORTR’s heavy influence, the two producers prominently display the best of New Zealand’s underground.
New Noise is Dim Mak’s new music discovery imprint that focuses on cutting edge sounds from burgeoning artists across the genre spectrum. New Noise originally got its start as a compilation series highlighting fresh faces handpicked by Steve Aoki and the Dim Mak crew. Since then, the platform has evolved into a bi-weekly, free-download model based on singles. New Noise’s current incarnation is also copyright free, which allows the budding community of Twitch gamers and amateur YouTube creators to use New Noise music in their videos and live streams without the need to purchase or pay fees, all in exchange for linking back to the artists and their music.
