Art of Noize is a small group of people based in Sweden with a common love for music. More specifically music that makes people go bananas. We love the heavy, the hard-hitting, the trashy, the beautiful. We love discovering new music and we love sharing it with the world. Most of all we love letting music surprise us.
What else do we do?
We never started Art Of Noize with the intent of it just being another music blog. We want to go above and beyond what is expected. Therefore we've been very active in covering the EDM (Electronic Dance Music) scene in Sweden by going to gigs, filming live shows and talking to the best artists out there. Our YouTube channel is a testament to a lot of the work we've done so far, but our hope is to be able to add work we are proud of and love to this page as our journey continues.
What kind of Music will i find here?
The way we see it genres often do people disfavours. They tend to act like walls disconnecting people who love music. We love good music, that's it. That being said, with Art of Noize our goal is to share music that delivers the finest of what we call 'hard-hitting' party flavours. We like the stuff which makes you wanna headbang. Today this tends to include labels such as Dubstep, Electro of different varieties and Drum & Bass. We never feel the need to stick within the parameters of these labels. Good music is good music and that's what we want to share with you.
I dont know so much about this mystic musical phenomenon named XYK. But the EP named “Nebula” has been blowing trough my speakers for some time now. And all I can say is that I love it.
I wish I could write more about this new project. All I know for now is that XYK originates from Stockholm but currently resides somewhere in the United Kingdom. Make sure to sit down and really listen to this, because it’s something out of the ordinary. Not the common drum & bass you would come across. My personal favorite track is the second one called “Claustrophobia” which even have a original music video. You can watch it here!
Please do listen to the whole EP down below. It wont be a disappointment. You will also find XYK on Spotify and you can support this project by buying the EP here and here! Have a good weekend!
Since I havent posted something in while I thought I would share some of my latest mixes with you guys. It’s what I’v been listening to lately or tracks that I really think deserve some more attention. Enjoy!
Lets Be Friends freshly released EP entitled ION “Invasion Of America” includes three great tracks but the one that got my attention the most is the last one named “The Bigger Bang” and damn I have played the shit out of this recently. Have a listen to it below and be sure to crank up those speakers before you do! If you like what you hear you can buy the whole thing here Enjoy!
The duo Dog Blood “Skrillex & Boys Noize” new EP entitled “Middle Finger PT.2″ has been leaked. The latest news about when it will drop officially is on August the 20th. But you can as of now stream some of the songs from their own soundcloud page. I have been curious ever since I heard Skrillex latest essential mix on BBC Radio 1 and of course Dog Bloods sets on various different festivals about what they have been cooking up. And I am not disappointed. They have been experimenting with sounds ever since they got together and they still do. My favorite one on this is The M Machine remix which really gets me going. There are also remixes done by Million Like Us and Trapmasters. Cheers!
Rasmus Hermansen aka F.O.O.L “Fuck Our Ordinary Lives” recently dropped his new EP entitled “Feelings” and it´s with great emotion I have to say that this might be one of the biggest releases this year no doubt. This 9 track monster contains 5 originals and 4 remixes of the track “Feelings” by artists such as Lets Be Friends, Chimeric, Anzo and Rasmus own side project with Alan Charif called Falcon Funk. The EP breaths new life in to the electro house charts which is great in my opinion.
Nothing this exciting has seen the light for a while and it shows. Already sitting in the top 5 on numerous Beatport charts it shows that Rasmus truly has been giving everything he has and I quote the man behind the mask himself here.
– FEELINGS EP is probably the best EP i’ve ever made. Really satisfied with this one!
And I have to agree to 100% on that. Created with his own unique sound as always and with a great and absolute superb finish this is EP is a must for all you electro banging heads out there! You can stream the EP down below and find it on Spotify here. But whatever you do you should buy this gem since it´s totally worth it! I am looking forward to see more stuff from Rasmus in the future as I always do. I recently saw that he is working on a new mixtape. And he has also said that he is working on a collaboration with GTRONIC. This dude never stops and I sure as hell hope he never will do! Cheers!
Haven’t updated the site in a while but I thought I would share some of the tracks that have been played regularly in my mp3 player lately.
This first track is Minnesotas take on Collie buddz reggae hit “Come Around”. He has turned the really groovy original vocals into an oldschool dubstep banger. Hopefully we can hear more of this during the upcoming fall.
Hijack Da Bass is back with a two track EP called “Colossus”. Since most of us in AoN were away during the release of this we did not have the time to post it. But better late then never?!
This EP consists of two tracks. One electro house smasher and a dubstep track which features a vocalist named Fraze. Both tracks are good, but the one that hit my soft spot is the dubstep one. I personally just found it to be more interesting, more things going on and such. But that is my own opinion. Nonetheless this is a great EP and Hijack Da Bass has been kind enough to give it out for free as well! Big up for the great work! Have a listen to both tracks and tell me which one is your favorite and why! Be sure to check them out on soundcloud since these guys never seem to stop pumping out stuff!
Freshly dropped remix of Bro Safaris new tune “Drama” done by Party Favor. Bro Safari has issued a remix contest that ends tomorrow. I have listened to some of the remixes that have surfaced and this is my favorite so far! Oh and guess what! Yes it´s TRAP! Listen to it, grab it for free if you dig it! Cheers!
New release from fellow swede Joakim Alfvén aka. Joaquin.
The track itself is an official remix of another swedish dude named Lucas Nord, and it’s been out for a couple of days. I recommend you give it a listen cause the track is a powertrip of good vibes and it atleast gave me some much needed energy on this oh so gloomy sunday.
Ah well there has been loads of opinions on “Random Access Memories” and I myself had some struggle at the beginning with Dafts new ways! But after getting the album on vinyl I changed my mind totally! I love it! And one of the tracks I dig is “Doin’ It Right”. Computer Club worked his magic on this gem and turned it in to a really chill awesome DNB tune! Hope you will enjoy this as much as I am.
