NOISIA ANNOUNCE ‘OUTER EDGES REMIXES’ ALBUM
- Compilation features remixes from Bassnectar, Ivy Lab, Machinedrum, Amon Tobin, Camo & Krooked, Mat Zo, and more.
“We wanted to have our album Outer Edges remixed by a lot of very different artists. When we made the album we went as far as we could within our own confines; exploring and stretching the outer edges. That’s why we didn’t do any collaborations on the album. With this remix package we asked a lot of very different artists to take that material beyond our edges, into their respective domains. We are really happy that they managed to take our music into completely different dimensions, with such exciting results!” – Noisia
Dutch electronic music trio, Noisia, have revealed the remixers for their forthcoming ‘Outer Edges Remixes’album. Released on 7 April, the compilation brings together remixes of last summer’s ‘Outer Edges’ studio album from the likes of Bassnectar, Ivy Lab, Machinedrum, Amon Tobin, Camo & Krooked, Mat Zo, Dyro, The Upbeats, Mefjus, and more.
Handpicked by Nik, Martijn, and Thijs, the artists range from across the electronic music spectrum, with many of the mixes taking the original versions outside of drum & bass entirely – something Noisia were keen to achieve with this project. Some tracks from ‘Outer Edges Remixes’ will be released individually via DSPs and streaming services towards 7 April, and Camo & Krooked’s mix of ‘The Entangled’ is available now. Fans can pre-order an‘Outer Edges Remixes’ bundle, including CD and 320 kbps MP3s versions of the album, and a limited edition t-shirt, via https://store.visionrecordings
Noisia have had nothing short of an incredible 12 months. Last summer’s ‘Outer Edges’ album became one of the standout artist releases of 2016, earning them 3 awards at the Drum and Bass Arena Awards (Best Producer, Best Album with 'Outer Edges' & best video with ‘Mantra’), ‘Best Album’ at the UK Drum And Bass Awards, and contributed towards them receiving the Beatport award for ‘Best-Selling Drum & Bass Artist’.
The accompanying ‘Outer Edges’ audio-visual show, featuring their biggest production to date, raised the bar for electronic music performances. After the launch at Czech Republic’s Let It Roll festival, the band headlined festivals including Sziget, Pukkelpop, Lowlands, and SW4, Tour highlights include selling out their ‘Outer Edges’ shows in London (Electric Brixton) and Amsterdam (Melkweg) months in advance, and a recent headline show at Rampage, the biggest indoor bass music event in the world (capacity 15,000). ForthcomingOuter Edges shows include Paris’ Elysee Montmartre (17/3), Motion in Bristol (18/3), Le Bikini in Toulouse (24/3), Link in Bologna (25/5), Hospitality In The Dock in London (14/4), The Netherland’s ‘We Are Electric Weekender (17/6), Nass Festival in the UK (7/7), and more.
While Noisia have transcended their genre and grown into a phenomenon in their own right, drum & bass is at the core of Noisia’s sound, but their visceral 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. This attitude extends outside of the studio and into the curation of the Noisia Invites events and their DJ shows, where they share stages with the likes of Skrillex, Andy C, Gaslamp Killer and Chase & Status.
