in the late 80s i started listening to uk radio stations when i was a little kid and i instantly fell in love with the acid sound and rave movement that was portrayed on those uk dance shows. when i got old enough to attend clubs and warehouse raves, to experience the movement first hand, it was a nobrainer for me that the music and the lifestyle was my call. lately…. in my dj sets and when producing music… i have been time travelling back to those days. back to how i remember the music i fell so deeply in love with and that is exactly what you hear on this “done/undone” release. for the “done” track i teamed up with cari golden to have a female spoken word and a great message to build the music around. i always prefer to do original vocal recordings rather than using samples. cari understood 100% what i was after and i love the lyrics and execution by her. the spoken word is centered, very clear and deep to contrast the constantly building intensity of the acid patterns and thumping beats. “undone” is instrumental and has a more straight forward flow to it. it’s quite simple although the shifting groove patterns might surprise some. i was torn between two different acid patterns and decided to drop one of them as a surprise change. playing the track in clubs i quickly learned that the change of dynamics had a great effect. both tracks have been wrapped in dark-themed chords and atmosphere. both tracks have my take on the sound i fell in love with years ago and obviously still love today. i hope you like what you hear.
i am really proud to present this 3-tracker by victor ruiz on noir music. i think he is one of the best and most flawless techno producers right now and together we have carefully picked three tracks which perfectly showcases his production skills. i often write how i’ve worked with the artists on my labels to make their tracks reach their best potential. with victor i feel everything has been served to me on a silver platter as his productions are already perfectly crafted. although victor changed details right up until last minute, some of thesetracks also dates back 2 years, so he has had plenty of time to make everything sit and sound right. after a nine month break from releasing originals i feel truely honored that victor has chosen noir music as the label for this venture. both victor and i feel these three tracks compliment each other and at the same time showcase his skills to make great, diverse music. check the entire release. the music will speak for itself.
it is a pleasure to work with david granha and to present his 2nd release on noir music. not only is he a super talented producer but he is also open to taking his tracks a step further and in the process evolve as an artist and producer. i have been playing these 3 tracks a lot in my sets around the globe and almost each week discussed change of details with david. it makes me proud to have this “savala” release on noir music cause you can hear from the title track “savala” is an extension of his previous release on the label and with “balea” and “mortal sins” he moves his sound-design to new ventures and a more minimal, raw approach to the final outcome. exactly what i wanted from david. exactly what i hoped for and well…… even better. these 3 tracks just sounds amazing and they have been crafted perfectly step by step over a long period of time. a lot of passion, energy and love have been put into this release. on top of that the titles of the tracks also have sentimental value to david, so there is also a deeper meaning with this release. give them a spin and experience how powerful these tunes are.
this is the debut release on noir music from brazilian k.a.l.i.l. we have been working quite some time to perfect this first release from him on the label and give it the edge needed to stand out. after tons of road-testing and going back and forth with production ideas i am now happy to have 2 perfect tracks ready from k.a.l.i.l. that really showcase his super solid techno sound and production flair. “involved” (co-produced with any mello) is a quite simple trip with any’s spoken word in center of industrial elements wobling it and out. this track works really well in the clubs because of its on point minimalism, the high intensity stacatto synths and the catchy vocal line from any. it’s not easy to do big tracks without big basslines – but that’s what k.a.l.i.l. and any mello truely achieved with this one. “revolved” is a track i signed already last year and since then k.a.l.i.l. has been perfecting everything about the track from small details to bigger arrangement improvements. this track has that big bassline that sits right in your face. it also has the right build for those peaktime moments in the clubs. i have been playing “revolved” a lot over the past months and people go crazy for those big bass drops. we are honored to have another great producer join the noir music family and proud to have another belter of a release ready for you.
repress incoming! a blast from the past... one of the most iconic tracks from the noir music back-catalogue makes a remixed revival. 3 impressive remixes to spice up your dj sets. victor ruiz makes bipolar star a fantastic big room techno stomper with his signature sound and just the right amount of melody from the original to make it recognizable. re:axis almost makes the track unrecognicable with a more minimal techno approach. something i am sure will please the forefront of the underground techno scene. animal picnic & aaryon almost pays tribute to the original with their very cool update keeping a lot of the original feel but cleverly tweaked the elements to sound super fresh again. i believe there’s a little something for everyone in this remix package which was the purpose behind doing it instead of a bunch of remixes sounding the same. i hope you like the new remixes and put “bipolar star” right back into rotation.
jos & eli might seem unknown to many electronic music lovers but they have been releasing great music since 2013. they have been sending me music for a long time and i think we have spend about a year developing this first release on noir music, making sure it represented their debut on the label perfectly.
when you hear the adrenaline hunt release you will notice that the 2 guys from tel-aviv have developed into a great production team over the years and these 3 tracks included here are not only cleverly crafted for the deeper dancefloors but can also be enjoyed on home stereo’s.
douglas greeds (freude am tanzen, bpitch) first ep for noir music. and as he really likes when a man sings on a track he features kuss and gjaezon for each track. remix works are coming from dapayk (mos ferry, stil vor talent) and einzelkind & robin scholz (cecille, kindisch, off).
we have become big fans of paul ursin at the noir music headquarter as he just keeps creating fantastic music from his studio in sicily. he gained lots of heavyweight dj support from his ep on nm2 in may and we expect him to take you by storm with this (his first) release on noir music. if mr. ursin is not already on your radar let this “sinthesis vol.1” convince you. no more words ... let the music speak for itself.
these 2 guys dont need an introduction as they have earned their respect in the underground over years of quality music. what needs a proper shout is the fact that they now teamed up for this amazing 2-tracker and we are honored to release this on noir music. early support by maceo plex and adam beyer has already made some buzz in club-land for this anticipated release and here s your chance to get onboard too.
we are proud to present christian nielsen s debut release on noir music. noir and christian has been friends for many years and therefore we have been following the danish talent closely and waited for the perfect time and the perfect tracks to create his first release on the label. so....here it is..... “over and over” sits right in between tech and techno with those irresistible vocals that s become christian s signature. on “speeding” mr. nielsen digs a little deeper and the result is a fantastic technogroover which roots back to early detroit underground. we recommend you give in and play both.
danism makes their debut on noir music with the emotional reciprocated love featuring the vocals of legend arnold jarvis. we fell in love with this stringled and super smooth song from 1st listen at the nm offices. deephouse like it sounded back in the day and in general just a timeless effort by the cambridge based guys. deetron, deux tigres and city soul project deliver the remixes and all of them are spot on quality with a more clubby edge. so instead of keep hyping this brilliant release. let the music do the talking.
danish djuma soundsystem teams up with italian aki bergen and they get showered in spoken poetry by none other than south african lazarusman.the reciepe is already there and looking good,but even better.it sounds good too. 2 different versions from 2 great producers. aki bergens version is very driving, electronic and suitable for the primetime and late night hours. djuma soundsystem serves the more organic and deep version for the warm up hours and small intense clubs.
around, a sexy, synthesizer-tinted groove featuring vocalist hayze dominated dancefloors across the world for close to two years, making noir a household name across clubland. and its still as popular as ever – the solomon vox remix of around has amassed more than 12 million views on youtube. as well as around, noir includes further club hits around feat. hayze, my fault feat. hrrsn and current single black feat. caitlin, evidencing noirs desire to work with a variety of vocalists to create something far 7 weightier than simply a collection of club tracks.
noir music is touching another classic to be refreshed for 2012. the track by hollis p monroe is a real alltime house hit originally released on stickman in 1997. newest vibes are added by subb-an (crosstown rebels, saved), larse (known for his hits >the more i want< and >so long<), laura jones (leftroom, visionquest) and sis (cecille, get physical) who just turned it into a 12 minutes techno monster
the package comes with a raw club cut aimed for the tech house floors, a james welsh (hypercolour, join the dots) remix for the uk beats and bass approach and a deeper 303 led techno journey done by german patrick chardronnet (connaisseur, poker flat).
coyu is back on noir music and this time stronger than ever. he serves up a double a-side with the haunting techno tune salvation and the lfo oldschool inspired future house.we fell in love with both tracks on the spot and are happy to have such a strong release by coyu on noir music. remixes will follow late summer.
alex flatners (get physical, circle music, pokerflat) vinyl debut for noir is a collabo with msms and singer cari golden. real house music with remixes from emerson todd (saved, upon you), paolo rocco and fabio giannelli.
noir music comes up again with a deep & funky piece from kolombo (azuli, kittball, blufin, sk supreme) combined with a hot remix pack by daniel bortz (suol, be chosen, souvenir music), downtown party network (eskimo, loud east, bear funk) and fusty delights (different, wall of sound). soulful deep house music as its best.
oliver dahl returns to noir music with the amzing limno ep. at only 21, oliver dahl is having quite an impact on the electronic dance scene the world over. recent months have seen him garner support from an array of dance music luminaries such as dubfire, laurent garnier, nic fanciulli. villo is a peak time techno monster being supported by a whos who of the scene. the killer breakdown will destroy the dancefloor guaranteed! joa is a more progressive affair, with cool chord staps and dream-like breakdown
it’s been more than 2 years since i did an original release on my own label. it’s been 9 months since i had an original noir release. i wanted some time without releases. some time to breathe, to think and most importantly time to be creative and to experiment. i have picked 2 productions i felt sounded different to everything else out here.
after his very successful remix of slip away on noir music we are extremely delighted to release this incredible ep from olivier. paris based giacomotto is no new name to the scene but he has hit a sweet spot on noir music with his recent productions and this postgalactic 4-tracker might be his best effort to date. all 4 tracks move in the same universe but show giacomotto from melodic to the more minimal sound. its been ages since weve heard such a solid effort from 1 artist and we have been all smiles here since giacomotto decided to shower noir music with his great productions.
thomas schumacher is finally back on noir music with another outstanding 2-tracker. over the years me and thomas have become great friends as we click on so many levels and share the same taste in dark, melancholic and emotional music. i have been a big fan of thomas’ music for many years and i am still a great supporter of his productions today so obviously i am honored to release his music on my label again. on these 2 tracks thomas has recorded 2 authentic and raw tracks with a no holding back, zero bulls*** attitude. you can hear the “no formular” approach on both and i love that. we had an honest and creative back and forth a&r process on both tracks before and after testing them in the clubs and this has given both a unique and fresh techno sound. this is thomas schumacher’s natural rhythm.
tone depth has been making music for many years but he doesnt seem to get older...... he just gets better and better. this is his 2nd release on noir music and i can assure you there’s more to come in the near future. “escape” contains 3 instrumental and very intense tracks. they are all cleverly build for the underground floors. they each have their own special signature and carry that powerful tone depth production level. each track on this ep immediatley made me “escape” into the music, took me on a journey and captivated my attention throughout the running minutes of each piece. i have been playing these tracks since the day i received them track by track and they really do grow on you (play for play) like great music always tend to do.
this 4-tracker from spanish affkt might quite simply be his best release to date. i have always admired his different and quirky productions and as the followers will know we have released tracks with affkt before.this time me and marc (aka affkt) went deep into a&r ing the release to make sure all tracks reached their full potential. tracks have been added and removed from the release over time. the tracks have been re-arranged, adjusted, revisited over a period of 9 months time (yes thats how much time we spent carefully putting this release together and making sure it was perfect). i am really proud of what marc acomplished with this release on noir music. all 4 tracks work really well in the clubs and they each have a very strong affkt signature which i wont bother describing in detail by words but rather have you listen to these amazing squared pieces.
2016 repress incoming!
jay lumen needs no introduction as he has been important to the tech and techno scene for years now. after several releases on labels like drumcode, octopus, relief, suara, off etc. we are happy to have him back on noir music with this fantastic tech stomper our freedom that has a little bit of everything. the remixes comes from la fleur and traumer. both are among our favorite producers at the moment and we are happy to write that both did an excellent remix job making sure we got fantastic alternative versions here.
sabb is back on noir music with an ethnic tech house tune destined to cause some serious heat over the rest of the summer season 2013. this might be his best effort to date. well let you be the judge of that. here is illusiones!

we first discovered this when noir recieved the promo from ten ven. noir then started spreading the word about his love for this new ten ven act and shortly after we were generously offered to release it on noir music.
this is simply a beautiful song and amazing collaboration between eagles & butterflies (innervisions, get physical) and super talented singer/songwriter j.u.d.g.e. its one of those rare standout tracks you might come to love and treasure for the rest of your life. no more words necessary, hit play and let the music do the talking.
black vinyl edition ... beat a track that already is a hit? nearly impossible ? but not for noir music. they just took superfunk s lucky star and dropped it into a damn hot new edition for 2012. thanks again to solomun (diynamic, supernature) for another brilliant remix work. kolombo takes it back to the oldschool days with a deep work and a real 303 acid edit. overall a superb must-have package.
back to the 90s and back on noir. nice7 from italy (gruuv, great stuff, sk supreme, bla bla) are defending their position as top notch classical. four great tracks with pianos and good mood.

2016 repress! those lovely chords, that growling bassline combined with nancy sinatra-esque vocals and one big tease and build. thats what makes this track a true stand-out and sound like nothing else in club-land right now.

sabb has definately become an important player on the electronic music scene over the last couple of years and his talent has now shown he will be around for many years to come.
on this fine piece of music he hooked up with good friend dark beat to create a beautyful piece of music with a quite melancholic undertone to it. this track has dc10 ibiza moments written all over it and will without a doubt get many plays this summer.
mendo delivers yet another high quality mix with his unique sound and clever remix skills. on >ballkanika< he took us by surprise by making a quite uplifting hook from the dark clarinet instrument. once again he showcases his talent for hearing what others dont and making this track an even more summer-ish tune with a hands in the air feel to it.
alex caytas & aleks patz have been doing great productions for quite some time now. but it wasnt untill this track hit our speakers that our ears screamed: yes! fantastic drum programming, solid subs and do-dos are the simple and effective elements that makes this track so driving.
everyone being into house music should know paolo mojo by now.not only has he released and had success with some of the worlds biggest dance labels but he is also the man behind oosh records.
on this lovely piece of music mr. mojo gets deep down and funky to bring a more laidback vibe than he usually offers. the vocal hookline delievered by the lovely ryan starr will stick on your mind after only 1 listen and the tight beats and deep chords will make you wanna play it during your warm up session or just before heading into the more big room sounding stuff.

once again a standout 2 tracker on nm2. close your eyes and use your ears.
noir & fraser owen hooked up in late summer 2009 to create this monsterous samba tech house tune and spent 2 months testing the track, adjusting arrangement and details to make it 100% perfect.

oliver dahl returns with another premium ep on noir music. his outstanding productions have been getting serious attention ever since his very first rien on noir music.
on this new 3ep we got the typical techno rolling oliver dahl track mira , the noisy and driving havardt and the melodic sako to show all the colours of the oliver dahl techno world.
we believe this man is up there with the best and if you hear a little dubfire and gui boratto in these productions, well - you might not be wrong.
the elite will be rocking the 3ep all summer - what about you ?
another extraordinary remix-package from noir music sees the light of day. this time its noirs very own ragnarok track getting some serious remix treatment from some of the worlds finest producers. none of them needs extra introduction - just check all remixes and pick a favourite if you can
whether he is travelling the world dj ing at some of the finest parties on the planet, or producing tracks that gain support from the cream of the world s elite players, noir (a.k.a. rene kristensen) remains one of the industry s most respected and hard working individuals. as 2008 rolls on into 2009, noir remains determined to maintain his status as a significant player and innovator on the scene for many years to come
two of italys finest young producers serve up a new dose of minimal class. andrea roma & alberto fracasso reform under their own names after the success of their guise >delv & debox<, this time bringing fresh influences of chillout and hints of techno to a proven formula. first track >duracell< has a warm minimal groove with all the beeps and bass notes to keep dance floors rolling. up next is aptly named, >energizer<. this track throws in dirty and gritty influences, and is the perfrect compliment to the minimal offering on side a. the icing on the cake comes in the form of >volta<, a twisted yet melodic thumping track.
