Kill the Noise
There’s a new ghoul haunting parties worldwide – a diamond-eyed, baseball-capped skull slapped to turntables, grinning off sweat-drenched t-shirts, and gleaming from 20-foot neon screens on stage. It’s the bony mascot of Kill The Noise, the buzzing young producer and DJ whose uniquely intense take on electronic dance music has kept him rocking around the globe. From packed nightclubs to sold-out festivals like HARD, Electric Daisy Carnival and Audiotistic, marking his territory every night with hypnotic, bass-heavy sets and skull stickers alike. Amazingly, Kill The Noise has been able to leave such huge mark on his fans without a single official solo release. Yet that’s about to change in a big way with the release of his debut EP Roots, a diverse four-track collection that offers KTN a chance to show off musical influences while hinting at exciting new production frontiers. The title track is a tribal epic built on techy basslines and massive drums. “Jokes On You” is a cheeky, instantly memorable clubber featuring enormous detuned riffs and KTN’s own cut up vocals. “My World” jacks out with high-energy laser synths, while closing track “Perfect Combination” offers a infectious hook and feel-good disco vibes. Roots is also the inaugural release on Slow Roast Records, a new imprint founded by Kill The Noise and world-champion deejay Craze, distributed by indie powerhouse Fool’s Gold. It sets the stage for future releases this year by Señor Stereo, Klever and even more from KTN and Craze themselves. So rest assured – this skull will continue to shine!
Without a question, Brillz shot to fame because of his insane remix for Kill the Noise's "My World". His classic trap snare mixed with an always hardest-hitting drop consistently delivers an energy like no other. With support from some of the biggest names in the game, expect to see big things for Brillz this year.
Style of Eye
Swedish DJ/producer Style of Eye (AKA Linus Eklöw) has been melding his far-reaching influences to form a unique brand of high energy club music since 2003. Although his sound has developed significantly since Right Now! first burst on to dancefloors in that year, Linus has maintained a sonic identity that continues to mark him out as one the scene’s most singular players.
Like the mythological 12th Planet (popularized by controversial author Zecharia Sitchin), our 12th Planet flies perpendicular to the system. His beats are off axis and his subsonic frequencies send you into your own orbit. America's first king of dubstep is ready for impact.
