Bristol producer Noire is gearing up for his new EP, Castle Futur, and it's looking like we're in for a punishing three-course funky banquet. The first cut to be heard from the EP is centrepiece "2nd Guessin'", a maximum impact barrage of chest-rattling bass, riotous percussion and heart-racing energy. While it sits at the darker, heavier end of the UKF spectrum, this is still a perfectly versatile cut any DJ should be chomping at the bit to deploy at their next rave.

Noire's Castle Futur marks just six releases for Akito's rising Sans Absence label, suggesting it's a label we should all be paying close attention to in the future.
