Kill The Noise
In a time when the internet and dancefloors around the world are saturated with all types of artists and performers, it's difficult for emerging names to carve out their own niche in the scene and have their sound heard by the masses. However, the dynamic production force known as Kill The Noise has done just that in the small amount of time since their introduction to the electro/house scene just before the turn of the new year.
Upon further inspection, the origin of this unique and refined sound is apparent. The project emerges from the same studio of NY-based avant garde drum & bass front runner Ewun, as well as the brand new, highly regarded mash-up/IDM project Ludachrist. The minds behind these projects are no strangers to the electronic music scene, having already traveled the globe in various other successful musical endeavors.
Tight production, creative, original, and innovative ideas begin to describe the sound Kill The Noise is known for. While some compositions growl with angry, distorted synth lines and glitchy sample edits, others lean towards the more playful, funkier side with addictive melodic hooks and lyrics, complimenting additional productions of the more techno-inspired realm of pumping side-chained beats and infectious rhythms.
This sound has resonated throughout the blogosphere and indie/ electronic dance communities, and has been embraced by both old and new generations of artists and enthusiasts. Commanding attention from its listeners, Kill The Noise has earned support from a diverse selection of notable players in the global electronic dance music community. Names such as Chromeo, Ocelot, Franki Chan of Iheartcomix, LA Riots, Scion Automotive Company, Treasure Fingers, Klever, Craze, Le Castle Vania, and Juxtapoz Magazine, just to name a few - not to mention the plethora of music blogs all over the world who have helped to spread the growing reputation of KTN. Whether it is an original composition or remix, the music stands out from the pack as something special to both the average and avid listeners.
2008 is already shaping up to be huge for Kill The Noise with a truckload of new material in the pipelines including various remixes and a debut EP of original material entitled 'KILL KILL KILL'. All in addition to a growling list of high-profile performances. Kill The Noise is on a mission to prove it's name to be true... Kill the noise, kill the production, kill the scene, and become the most influential production outfit on the block.
Milo & Otis
A curious kitten named Milo and his inseparable friend, a pug-nosed puppy named Otis, tumble through one exciting musical escapade after another. Milo & Otis started life together on a farm and spent their days exploring the barnyard and the surrounding countryside. One day, the little feline is swept down a rushing river and Otis takes off in pursuit to rescue his friend, thus beginning a series of musical adventures.
Ape Drums' unique dancehall rhythms mixed with big room sounds have already garnered support from some of the world's top DJs. His tracks have received heavy rotation from the likes of Major Lazer, Dillon Francis, Kill The Noise and Flosstradamus to name a few. As a veteran of the dance world, he started DJing/producing at 15 and was involved with his high school dance crew. His breakout single "Worl' Boss" Ft. Vybz Kartel set the music industry on fire with its addictive rhythms and instantly became a hit. 2013 was a solid year for Ape Drums, releasing both remixes and originals on Dim Mak, Mad Decent, and Slow Roast. There's no telling what heights this Houston native will reach next.
From the fog of the Bay comes a newcomer just oozing bass pheremones. A little shake up from the normal, Bassex combines elements of electro and hard hitting dubstep to create his own unique style of bass music that can only be described as the innuendo behind his name, bass sex. With releases on Play Me, Burn the Fire, Killpop, Monstercat, and Heavy Artillery, you can seriously expect big things from this 21 year old youngster in the near future.
