Noom Records

Further to my previous post about Cleveland city, on the harder end of the spectrum what about the classic Noom records,another highly under rated label on the scene.

This Acid Tekno stomper is one of my favourites on the label.

Fantastic label, one of the best for that style. There's a few techno bits on there which are well worth having as well.

Fell away as the hard trance sound died off at the end of the 90s, but what a selection it had up until then.

Some of my favourites:

I liked some of the early Noom stuff - Nexus6 springs to mind...

I think at the time I preferred labels such as Tripoli Trax / Prolekult / Harthouse / Wanted / Bush / Music Man -> I guess they were more leaning towards techno?! Well, slightly anyways.

Out of those labels, I would say Tripoli Trax / Bush / Music Man are my favourites. I think they have largely stood the test of time too.

On a slight different tangent, I thought these releases were immense on Force Inc Music Works:

Just stumbled across these 2 in my collection and thought I would mention them - used to play these all the time - nice mix of breakbeats/acid/techno :biggrin:

I only have about 10 Noom / Noom UK records and that is not enough imo. I always bought them when i was in the MVE and they were cheap but would like some more in my collection.

Yeah a big fan of some of the earlier Noom releases. Have quite a few of the first 30 or so.

my tastes in hard trance tend more towards the ravier end of things but i do like quite a few Nooms. I think my favourite (after the most obvious one that is) is The Encore by Mandala.

Funny you mention Prolekult as a few of the early Noom releases remind me a lot of the label (in fact wasn't there a Noom EP on there?). Tripoli Trax is a label I'd always written off as hard house but I'll have to have a dig through the early releases.

They were pretty much. But NRG jams and black & brown moondust are worth checking. Early acid techno.
