Noisia announce new album!
Dutch electronic music trio, Noisia, have announced the release of their long-awaited new album, ‘Outer Edges’ on their own label, Vision. The 18 track album (which is almost unheard of nowadays) is their first album in six years, and the band’s second in total.
For the uninitiated, Drum & Bass is at the core of Noisia’s sound, but their instinctive brand of electronic music has always ventured further, and the trio have continuously pushed boundaries through their own music and via collaborations with artists like Amon Tobin and the curation of the Noisia Invites events and their DJ shows with the likes of Skrillex, Andy C, Gaslamp Killer and Chase & Status.
‘Outer Edges’ pulls no punches, there are no concessions to daytime radio d&b, no singer-songwriter top-lines, and any vocal elements are twisted out of shape ( ‘Tentacles’ is proof of this). ‘Outer Edges’ shows Noisia on strong form; ‘Collider’, ‘Anomaly’, ‘Mantra’, are heavy dancefloor cuts alone on an album that moves from their signature neurofunk to the more experimental edges of their sound via tracks like ‘Stonewalled’, ‘Miniatures’, ‘Exavolt’, and ‘Sinkhole’.
NOISIA SAID: “It’s called Outer Edges because it’s us exploring the outer edges of what Noisia, the three of us together, is. It’s about the idea that all the songs are little islands that we take to their individual edge… They’re all like expeditions to far sides. That doesn’t mean that it’s everything; it’s just that every song, if it goes in a certain direction, we’ve taken it all the way there. There are no real concessions – we haven’t been super DJ-friendly or radio-friendly at all. We’ve done no collaborations and hardly any vocals on the album.”
