"The Tide is heavy as it was made around that time when Darkstep sound was very popular in the scene - lots of good producers came and smashed everything with dark & heavy drum n bass (Limewax, SPL, Gein, Evol Intent and many more). so its somekind influenced Noisia to do such masterpiece. :)

b-side is cool & heavy too. reminds me their earlier work on Subtitles "Hubcup". but for for me its a good tune to chill at home after a good night at club. i find it very relaxing :))

One of the best Noisia releases. And that says a lot, because Noisia is one of the greatest inheritors of the techstep/neurofunk/darkstep sound. They are one of the rare bands who can still make interesting tracks in this subgenre, even if you are not a die-hard fan but only a general electronic music lover. And that's hard in a subgenre with such an overload of different bands all trying to make new and better Reese+Amen Ed Rush & Optical songs. If you loved Watermelon, and you want to know what it evolved to by the year 2005: this is one of the best examples you will be able to find. Both tracks are absolutely marvellous, both in composition and in production. If it weren't so derivative (which it still is, ànd they had 6+ years of technological advancement as an advantage to make this, which is a lot if you consider the leap forward electronic music took around 2000-2001 when computers finally got performant enough and VSTs were invented) I would have given it 5/5.

Recently discovered Noisia from a Perth friend/DJ... blew my mind! This EP especially, which I own now is unbelievable. Their production is second to none, great atmospherics combined with dark bass and squelching sounds. The title track "The Tide" is my favourite, charging energy with great edits/fills throughout. Some of the best d&b I've ever heard, highly recommended, for all music lovers, not much rocks as hard and as intensely on all levels as Noisia...
