Noraj Cue, an Amsterdam-based producer and DJ, today makes his debut on Lee Burridge’s All Day I Dream record label with the release of the Ode to Life Formation EP. The EP features two remixes by Anton Tumas in addition to Noraj’s original mix of the title track.
After releasing his first EP in 2006, Noraj Cue has since released close to 300 tracks. Noraj has contributed to labels like The Other Side, UnderYourSkin, Klassified, Supernature, Stil Vor Talent, and Lee Burridge and Hoj’s Tale and Tone in addition to establishing his own label, Happy Camper Records, in 2018 in partnership with Unders & Britta Arnold. Noraj is a renowned audio engineer who has worked with artists including Be Svendsen, Deer Jade, and Itai. He has a wealth of musical knowledge and experimented with synthesizers and drum machines at a young age. Additionally, he has provided the music for movies for a staggering array of companies, such as Studio Drift, Adidas, GMC Motors, Film Dynamics, and Demobaza.
The original mix of ‘Ode to Life Formation, ‘ which Noraj opened with fluttering synth harmonies layered over percussion, serves as the EP’s opening track. A strong 4/4 kick is added after the track’s texture-heavy opening, giving the music a dependable beat. At the midway point, the song breaks down. All percussion fades, and there is a brief period of slumber before the kick drum is restored and vigor fills the song. Before the melody fades and the music ends with a simple rhythm, the final half of the song has upbeat chord progressions.
Two remixes of ‘Ode to Life Formation,’ the ReFormation mix and the Reprise mix, were also contributed to the EP by Los Angeles-based producer, DJ, label head of the Subtract imprint, and event planner Anton Tumas. Tumas adds more vigor to the dancefloor-ready ReFormation mix and a more minimal electronica version to the Reprise mix.
