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.
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.
It’s not every day you come across an artist who has yet to release their third track and you’re completely blown away by their musicianship and production skills, but Friday was one of those days when I discovered Layer. Disposal which is his latest tune, takes me back to another time in Drum & Bass. The production is immense, there’s beautiful simplicity in its structure yet it never bores you. This is one of those tracks that reminds me why I love Drum & Bass.
I’m looking forward to future productions from Layer, I can only imagine the future is bright. This is an Art of Noize exclusive, free download. Make sure you download the track by following the link and liking us on Facebook below:
Mike Stonebank or Mike Modulate and Rocket Pimp is a UK based DJ and producer. When I first heard his music I was very surprised of how all the extreme sounds were matched together in this amazing symbiosis.
While Mike Modulate focuses more on the drum & bass and dubstep sound he creates an amazing orgy of pumping basslines and lightning synth stabs under the alias Rocketpimp. This has to be one of the most interesting electro house producers today.
Longt time since I made some noize here and since I haven’t seen to much Drum n Bass posted here lately, I think it’s time to smack two birds with one stone today.
I recorded this mixtape this morning, which is the latest installation in my DnB Surge volumes, which is up to volume 3 now (sorry, forgot to post volume 2 when it was released, but you can find it here). I took a great chunk of new and classic tracks, all in the space of Neuro/dark, jump up, techstep and a little jungle. Got a great adrenaline rush making this, which I hope to achieve giving you while listening to it.

It’s unusual or even unheard of for us to post 2 posts consecutively about one artist, but this one felt required. Shufflethroat is already getting ready for his debut EP release and Art of Noize is getting an exclusive preview on this one. It’s hard to believe that Shufflethroat is releasing such a lot of high quality material in such a short time, but we sure as hell ain’t complaining. It deserved a post on our YouTube channel as well.
Look out for the release of the full EP for free on December 18th. Naturally we will be posting it!
So I sure do hope you have heard the original of this song! Because it´s bad ass! Posted back in August by Case Nine here. But enough of the original. Airwolf from Melbourne, Australia has here made a tasty remix of it. And even though it has those familiar trap music sounds, it sure grows in to something much better. Hope this will make your days towards weekend go faster. Enjoy this freebie!
Since a couple of years ago, I have kept my eyes close toward one of the most skillful and friendliest producer out there, which is Michael Gigantor. He is one of the masterminds behind many projects like Evol Intent for example. But I first got to know him under his solo-alias, which is Computer Club, which in my opinion is his strongest projects.
He has over the years delivered many of the best original tracks and remixes that I know. He has also delivered some mentally good mixtapes (that’s how I first got to know him, when he sent out a mail regarding his Winter 2010 Field Trip Mix). The only thing that is a big shame when it comes to this project, is that I rarely see anything new from him, which I have complete full understanding due to him being involved in so much. So I tend to cherish these moments when I see something fresh coming from him. And last night it finally did!
Reboot 2012 mix is his latest mix called and I’m like his previous stuff so amazed how high the quality is. In 65 minutes he squeezes in 43 tracks and flows like water. Don’t sleep out on this mix, or you’ll miss out on something extraordinary!
My name is Niklas (aka Naxon as I will be known as here on the blog) and I’m one of several new contributors to this fine blog. Some might know a little about me, since I used to be until lately a part of the Dödselectro crew, where I wrote about music since the birth of that blog basicly. But due to various reasons, I’ve decided to join this fine team to write about the music that gets me pumping. I hope you readers will find my posts to be an interesting addition to this blog!
Anyway, something I usually did at the previous blog was to post mixtapes from time to time that I’ve recorded and something I’ll keep on doing here. And for the first time, I’ve done a mixtape with strictly Drum n Bass material. I hope you enjoy this one, cheers!

It’s not every day that we post Drum & Bass, but today is one of those days. Why? Because Cubism has released a preview of an upcoming release. The amount of unique sound design spewing out of this mans magic production pot is pretty astounding, which is why I try to keep a firm eye on his updates. This already sounds good on Soundcloud so I can’t wait to have it in 320.
The new Noisia Ep is now finally out! I am not usually into DnB but with Noisia I will make an exception cause their sounds are so fresh and deep. Eight new tracks are featured on this new EP and I will post my favorite three in this post.
If you like what you hear go download the rest of the EP at noisia.nl(The site is slow as fuck at the moment so it might take some time to load it).
