Elementz of Noize are one of those under-rated outfits that slips under the radar mainly due to the fact that they were good at just about every genre they tried there hand at. Alan Clark & Justin Maughan started out making Intelligent drops like the amazing ‘Astral’ and ‘Yes’ in 1995. But as things started turning to the dark side they released a load of classic Tech Step barn stormers on SOUR Recordings. Tunes like ‘Communicate With The World’, ‘Talking Mad Shit’ and thier biggest hit ‘Hit Tha Deck’ were monster Tech Steppers that threw out the subtlety of Ed Rush and replaced it with bitchslapping beats and cavernous b-lines to make dancefloor damage.
After the Tech Step sound died out they moved to Emotiv and had a few releases on Fuze Recordings. Their new sound was still Tech based but had a more stipped back Stepper rhythm. Then in 2002 they returned to their melodic roots with the killer 12″ of ‘Clock/Guided by Lights’, showing that a tune could be musical and still hard as nails. Although they haven’t released much since this time, their legacy is still one of a back catalogue very few misses and a shed load of hits.

Yo, cheers for this! Me and my boys were big fans of these guys back in the late 90s, even got in trouble for playing Punk Mutha on the school radio station once! … anyway thanks for the mix… would’ve been epic if it had included the VIP of Astral but that’s just me being picky 😉
WELL I DID NOT THINK WE MADE THAT MUCH OF A IMPACT WORLDWIDE!!!
OH WELL IT WAS FUN TO BE AT THE BIRTH OF THE JUNGLE/TECHSTEP MOVEMENT AND TO EXPERIENCE REECE BASSLINES FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!
AND I SPEAK FOR ME AND ALAN IN THANKING YOU ALL FOR ENJOYING IT AS MUCH AS IT WAS WRITING AND PRODUCING IT!!!
IT’S AN HONOR THAT SOMEONE HAS TAKEN THE TIME OUT AND DEDICATED 1 AND HALF HOURS IN THE MIX FOR US!!!
RESPECT GOES OUT TO YOU…
As one of my favourite D&B producers of all time, let me say the pleasure is all ours. 🙂
Stumbled across Clock on beatport last night and it immediately brought back memories of dropping it and watching in amazement as the crowd went completely mental.
A quick google then brought me here, getting on this mix right now!
Love that track. Thanks for listening.
