Noisia dj set (Farewell Tour)

Noisia: Three men, one Vision

The Vision: To explore the outer edges and capabilities of electronic musicality without compromise, to turn sound design into an art and aspire to make records that sound like no one or nothing else.

United by a shared passion for progression, technical innovation and ruthless quality control (plus large amounts of gaming, hip-hop and humour) Nik Roos, Martijn van Sonderen and Thijs de Vlieger have worked together since leaving school. Within two years of their 2003 debut release they d already appeared on some of the most agenda-setting labels in drum & bass: Moving Shadow, Subtitles, Renegade Hardware, Shogun, Ram and many more. But even then they had no idea how successful their partnership would be.

A decade deeper: From their drum & bass roots they ve proceeded to stamp all over the musical map to become one of the most established and uncompromised acts in electronic music. From their unique, custom-built floating triple-studio complex in Groningen, they’ve created benchmark productions, established three respected labels (Vision, Division, Invisible), remixed rave titans such as The Prodigy and Skrillex, curated their own Noisia Invites festival and scored games such as ‘Devil May Cry’ and ‘Counter Strike’ and music for movies such as ‘The Man From U.N.C.L.E.’ and ‘Transformers 3’.

To really understand where they re coming from, what makes them tick and how their unique three-headed machine works visit one of their Noisia Invites shows. A place where the trio hold court, bouncing off the sonic chaos of guests from Gaslamp Killer to Teddy Killerz. Or lock into a Noisia Radio show where each show reflects their humour, the wider and more experimental tastes that they can’t express in their sets.

New limits set both in the studio and on stage, the outer edges have been established… Only to reveal even further targets in the vision’s distance. The uncompromised explorations continue.

Orbital

Orbital

From their relatively humble beginnings producing simple but infectious top 20 Pop-Dance tunes to their more recent sophisticated top 5 Pop-Dance tunes, classic albums, film & TV scores and beyond, Orbital have crafted some of the most innovative yet accessible electronic music since their inception in 1989 whilst at the same time retaining great respect for their live work due to their extraordinary shows around the globe which pay as much attention to the live mixing of visuals and choice of imagery, as to the live sound itself. Perhaps, though, one of their greatest achievements is their longevity which is firmly based on a sound that is recognizably their own, coupled with a will to proceed at their own pace and on their own terms with little regard to the industry machinations that surround them or the musical fads and trends that come and go.

Paula Temple

For over 15 years Paula Temple has been pursuing her own unique musical path. As a self-confessed noisician she specialises in a noisy, phantasmagoric techno sound, where the dial is rarely turned below 200% and every moment of silence seems deafening. Such refreshing high voltage music has placed Paula at the forefront of today’s techno scene.

R&S Records released ’Colonized’ EP in 2013, ‘Deathvox’ EP in 2014 and her remixes for The Prodigy in 2015. The track ‘Deathvox’ is regarded by her peers as one of the most original contributions to modern techno. Her most celebrated track ‘Gegen’ remains an anthem at festivals worldwide and was inspired by the defiantly loving queer community of Berlin. ‘Contact’ from her ’The Speck of The Future’ EP appeared on Jeff Mills’ Exhibitionist release, and she contributed ‘Oscillate’ to celebrate the final release series of Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons label.

Paula Temple has remixed avant-electronic acts such as The Knife, Peaches, Perera Elsewhere and Planningtorock. In 2015 she started a unique collaboration series called Decon/Recon on her label Noise Manifesto, working with several artists including rRoxymore, Aisha Devi, SØS Gunver Ryberg and Oni Ayhun. In 2016-2017 she co-produced with Karin Dreijer on the new Fever Ray album ‘Plunge’ which won the Swedish Grammy for Producer of The Year in 2018.

Her worldwide touring schedule has included stellar performances at Movement Detroit, Pitch Australia, Mutek Mexico, Katharsis Amsterdam, as well as being a regular contributor to the Berlin techno scene at Tresor, About Blank, Gegen, Berghain and the now defunct Stattbad.

SNTS

An anonymous producer with a gritty, heads-down style of techno and a focus on vinyl, SNTS first surfaced in late 2012. He’s been behind two record trilogies, Chapters and Scenes, issued through his self-titled label, and also earned appearances on Horizontal Ground and Edit Select Records.
