Black Noise

BLACK NOISE are a production force to be reckoned with. When THE FUTUREHEADS started their new label this year their first choice of remixer was Black Noise. When SOUTHERN FRIED needed someone to take their DIPLO and LAIDBACK LUKE release to another level they contacted Black Noise. And when MINISTRY OF SOUND put together their wish list for remixers of the globally successful ‘RIVERSIDE (LETS GO!)’ it was Black Noise who were added to that list.

They’ve had two EP’s released on NORMAN COOK’s celebrated SOUTHERN FRIED label and have another two to complete before a debut album will drop on the label later in the year. They have racked up 15 remixes and have TOPPED THE HYPE MACHINE CHARTS with their remix of CROOKERS FT. WILEY.

The first EP released introduced the vocal talents of WIZARD SLEEVE to the world on the track ‘ME PLUS YOU’ which was subsequently licensed by Ministry Of Sound to be mashed up with SIDNEY SAMSON’S ‘RIVERSIDE’. This reached NUMBER 2 IN THE UK CHARTS and stayed in the charts for 3 months and is still continuing to sell, very nearly reaching GOLD DISC STATUS!

Who are you and what’s your sound?
