Noisia’s Thys sets out into solo waters with debut single ‘Unmoved Mover’
Last year when venerated electronic trio Noisia announced they’d be splitting indefinitely after a distinguished 20-year run together, 2020 was expected to be a year of bittersweet goodbyes with one final farewell tour on the books. Of course those plans changed this year, and while Noisia’s final tour has been postponed to 2021, the group is already starting to splinter off into their own solo endeavors, namely Thys. Shortly after seemingly confirming a new side project with Skrillex under the hood, the Dutch drum ‘n’ bass veteran has returned with his debut solo single, the lead cut from his upcoming debut EP, Unmoved Mover / Unwound.
The EP’s lengthy, seven-and-a-half-minute title track introduces Thys’ solo sound with a club-ready breakbeat effort, characterized by complex percussive arrangements and sinister synthwork. The upcoming project is expected to showcase two different facets to Thys’ sound, showcasing performance-primed DJ set weapons as heard on “Unmoved Mover,” and a more experimental side on Unwound, delving into fringe ambient sonics for a more cinematic listening experience. Thys’ debut solo single arrives via his own VISION imprint, listen below.
