[Mix] If you’e been following Music is 4 Lovers for a while, then you most certainly very well know that NOIR is my obsession, addiction, and infatuation. It all started when I first heard his Noir Recommends Podcast series with his superb selections all laced with his SEXY voice giving some master insight. As a promo for the LOADED 31 track double CD ‘Defected Presents Noir in the House’ released earlier this week, Noir has created this 32 minute, 13 track mix to give you just enough of a taste to lure you into making this purchase … which you obviously should.
The long-awaited official partnership between two of the scene’s undisputed heavyweights, Defected presents Noir In The House is representative of the forward-thinking nature and deeply-rooted heritage of both label and artist. Featuring cuts from the likes of Nina Kraviz, Disclosure, dOP, Nick Curly, Maya Jane Coles and Hot Since 82, as well as several exclusive Noir remixes, the mix collection is an impeccably executed project from a DJ at the very height of his powers, and unambiguously sets the musical tone for Defected Records in 2013.
For lovers of house and techno, Noir should really need no introduction. Unquestionably one of the most talented electronic artists in the world, through his highly energetic DJ sets, sublime productions and acclaimed label Noir Music he has tirelessly built a reputation as a leader in his field. Notable releases include his collaboration with Haze ‘Around’, the Solomun remix of which has been the undisputed deep house anthem of the last 18 months, demonstrating Noir’s exceptional ear and propensity for being ahead of the game in nurturing world-class talent.
This has since been cemented by signings from artists such as NiCe7 and Hot Since 82 to his label, proving his skills as an A&R are of an equally exemplary standard to those as a recording artist. “The tracks were not chosen because of great sales, popularity, artist names or hype” concludes Noir. “They are simply chosen by passion and love for the underground club music. Hopefully you will fall in love like I did when I heard them for the first time.” Fall in love we will …
