After crushing singles ‘Each Other ft. Eric Lumiere and ‘Into the Light’ ft. Karra, St. Louis-based dance music producer, Notaker, has officially released his sophomore Monstercat EP, PATH.FINDERPATH.FINDER is the follow up to the 2018 mau5trap release of EREBUS I EP.

The EP features fresh edits of the Monstercat Uncaged Vol. 6 single ‘Into the Light’, with an extended mix, radio edit, and VIP all included in the package. Additionally, Notaker assembles emotionally powerful, synth-heavy bass music by crafting radiant soundscapes throughout the EP.

Notaker’s return to Monstercat is a triumphant one. The intro track, ‘Only in My Dreams’, evokes nostalgic emotion in its nearly two-and-a-half-minute intro with its spacey vocals, powerful synths, and subsequent drop. The radio edit of the lead single ‘Into the Light’ is followed by the extended mix,offering a more progressive take on the melodic glitch-influenced anthem. With deep basses and a final drop that truly turns up the energy, ‘Melophonic’marks the gleeful midpoint of the EP and is the hardest hitting track on the project.

With impactful vocals provided by , colorful percussion, and iridescent synthesizers, the second and final single off the EP, ‘Each Other’, is a transcendent journey. The infectious house track ‘The Longest Night’ progresses from its extraordinary, extraterrestrial synths into a bouncy ballet of light chords with reverbed undertones.

On the final track, Notaker flips the powerful anthem, Into the Light, into a chilled, intoxicating composition with spacey, melodic vocal chops on ‘Into the Light VIP’, one of Notaker’s most unique productions to date. On PATH.FINDER, Notaker builds emotionally-rich narratives that ultimately culminate in a mesmerizing balance of delight and remembrance.


PATH.FINDER EP is Notaker’s return to the extended play format following his mid-2018 mau5trap release, EREBUS I EP. We see Notaker progress from the darker glitchy arrangements on EREBUS I to immersive tones of both delight and wistfulness on PATH.FINDER. Writing for Respect My Region, Austin Howell stated that Notaker was “Doing his part in bringing a unique sound to the industry” on EREBUS I, further describing him as similar to other new beat artists such as and 1788-L. The exuberant sounds of PATH.FINDER are on track to garner stronger reactions than EREBUS I.

Notaker is truly making a mark in the music industry with his invigorating synths and lush melodies. With support from heavyweight acts such as deadmau5, Seven Lions, , and Above & Beyond, Notaker is one of St. Louis’s biggest upcoming electronic acts.
