A pioneer by definition is the first one to open roads into virtually undiscovered territory.The career of DJ and producer Anderson Noise is one as pioneer of the electronic music scence in Brazil. Native of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Noise started DJ ing in a slow but steady manner as is the custom in his region of Brazil. Yet he never forget to take the necessary steps to insure total success. In 1989, during the explosion of Acid House on the club scene, Noise started playing around the local circuit in his hometown. With the professional passion for DJ ing, hes noted for saying that, the function of a DJ is to emote the audience or bring them to an emotional frenzy. Subsequently Noise started organizing and producing large scale events in which he could also DJ for as early as 1992.
With a fervor, he opened space for the expansion of the electronic music scence in the capital city of Minas Gerais, which as the time was in an embryonic state locally speaking.
There were more than 40 party events thrown in places like mental institutions, car dealership lots, shopping centers, historic buildings, etc, etc. The Noise Family turned into an institution, as the entire family was involved in organizing and working the events. Mamma Noise, Anderson's mother worked as hostess in the events,and Alvinho Little Noise joined in the fun burning up the dance floor spinning records along with Anderson. The first compilation disk come out in 96, "Paralisia Cerebral", when the dream of producing his own records turned into a reality in the talented hands of Anderson Noise.
In 1997 he was invited to include "Shantytown" on "Electronic Music Brazil", the first CD of 100% Brazilian DJ's& Procucers released by Sony-Mercado Mundo Mix.Without fear of expanding his horizons, Noise promoted the first trio electrico playing exclusively electronic music in 1999 during Carnabelô, the off season Mineiro Carnival that turned into a must see perfomance. Without knowing it, he would be acquiring the experience which would later prepare him for a bigger challenge playing on Daniela Mercury's trio electrico during the Salvador Carnival of 2002, giving him huge national exposure in the media. On the shelves of the great DJ's are always something besides records, that being trophy's and awards.In 97', Noise won the Best Underground DJ award for the magazine,"DJ Sound". In the two times that "DJ Sound" ran the competition Anderson won each time.
Then he won the trophy for the best producer and the best DJ of techno music which was called the "Night Illustrated" award created by Erika Palomino from the newspaper ''A Folha De São Paulo``. The faíscas trophy, an award Noise Won 3 years in a row was offered by the Minas Newspaper, "O Estado de Minas" for those artists that shook up the nightlife in Belo Horizonte and in 2003 he was runner up in the Cool Magazine Awards, Brazils most elegant electronic music magazine.The trophy was given to him in the subsequent year of 2004, as best DJ.
Anderson has always participated in the major national/Brazilian Eletronic Music Events.His presence was felt by all in every edition of the Skol Beats Festival since it's inception,serendipitously closing the 2003 Skol Beats Festival with great fanfare.Noise also participated in the "Electronic Tent" of Rock in Rio in 2000.
It was in this year that his second compilation CD was released called "October", with some tracks produced by his own record label ''Noise Music. The label started up in 1999 with the intention of bringing music to the world composed and produced by Brazilians. In his own words;'' We Brazilians always buy music by gringo artists and the gringos in turn never have any of our music``. There has already been great electronic music produced in Brazil of excellent quality waiting to be shown to the world.
In 2001 Anderson became a DJ in residence at "Headstart Night" in the "Turmills Club" of London, integrating a select group of Brazilian DJs that were playing in the UK and Europe at the time. At the same time Noise played abroad he would share the stage with great interational DJs when they would tour Brazil. The must notable of them who was impressed by the mineiro DJ was Carl Cox, considered the greatest DJ on the planet. Carl Cox was impressed by Noise's force of playing the first time Cox toured Brazil. "Anderson is very talented. He played with me sometime before, sometimes after. He also has his own label, Noise Music. They're good records, too good to ignore. In the 2001 issue of DJ Magazine, "2001 Top 100", Cox classified Anderson as the future "DJ Hero'.
His third CD compilation came out in 2002, greatly pleasing his Brazilian fan base, "Noise Music Compilation 100% Mix, Anderson Noise". It was released by a major record company,bringing all of the best Noise Music tracks into the form of an awesome set list compilation. It was well received in Brazil as well as in Europe , calling the attention of Trevor Rockcliffe, the owner of Mentor Records, a very well respected English label.After hearing the material, Rockcliffe wanted to release "Você Mesmo" on his Mentor Label. In 2002 Anderson started up his radio show, "Radio Noise", as one of his various weekly programs in his site.
In 2003 Anderson was invited by "DJ Magazine", the worlds most respected publication dedicated to electronic music, to produce his fourth CD, "DJ World Series, Anderson Noise". In a series of 5 records that the magazine released, where each DJ, representing a different continent would make a record representing his continent of origin, Anderson was chosen to represent Latin America.
From then on Noise's international career kept growing steadily.He has participated in the biggest international festivals: Homelands, Dance Valley, Creamfields, Sonar, Exit, Rock in Rio Lisboa, SAMC, Knebworth Ministry of Sound, etc. His presentations around the world have given him the opportunity to play in various countries such as;,Argentina, Chile, Colombia, England, France, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Japan, Portugal, Serbia and Montenegro, Spain, Switzerland, Uruguay and Venezuela. Noises CD's, records,and DVD's have been released by international labels such as Audio, Eukatech, Mentor, Missile, Molecular and Primate and are being played throughout the world.
In 2005 Noise created TV Noise together with "Toro Productions", including weekly programs from the DJ’s perspective showing clubs,parties,and festivals in Brasil and all over the world. After having played in Tokyo,Anderson entered into a partnership with "Womb",considered the second best club in the world by MIXMAG for presenting annual tours in Brazil and Japan.
Noises fifth CD is an innovative one for the Brazilian public called, "Anderson Noise Live @ Skol Beats 04". It is the first electronic music CD recorded live by a Brazilian DJ during his gig at the Skol Beats Festival which is the biggest electronic music festival of it's kind in Latin America. In Anderson's never tiring mode, he released shortly afterwards the first DVD from a Brazilian DJ, "Brazilian Love Affair",that accompanies Anderson's club/gig- circuit in many different states/regions of Brazil in which he is resident DJ. As far as Noise is concerned, there exists no limits that can't be surpassed.
This is surely a great virtue for those who are of a creative and pioneering nature.
