Noir Music proudly presents the self-titled studio album from electronic star Noir: one of the mostly hotly anticipated dance music debuts of 2015.
One of the world's most in demand DJs and producers, Noir has been responsible for some of the most poignant as well as explosive moments in clublands recent history. Arguably best known for his huge dancefloor bomb Around, Noir now drops his debut studio album, a project that has been nearly half a decade in the making.
Around, a sexy, synthesizer-tinted groove featuring vocalist Hayze dominated dancefloors across the world for close to two years, making Noir a household name across clubland. And its still as popular as ever the Solomon Vox remix of Around has amassed more than 12 million views on YouTube.
As well as Around, Noir includes further club hits Around feat. Hayze, My Fault feat. HRRSN and current single Black feat. Caitlin, evidencing Noirs desire to work with a variety of vocalists to create something far weightier than simply a collection of club tracks.
Noir is about telling stories, boating 12 completely unique productions that chart the artists evolution over the course of his expansive career.
With many of its cuts moving away from the strict four-to-the-floor parameters of house music production, the horizons of Noir stretch way beyond the dancefloor. Taking cues from a range of artists from Depeche Mode to Kraftwerk, and Massive Attack to Timbaland all of whom have heavily influenced Noirs aesthetic Noir is an emotionally charged and utterly engrossing body of work.
Says Noir of working on the album: The album has been in the making since I started working on Around back in 2010, so for me its a body of work that spans nearly 5 years, with changes to productions, melodies and moods before I was happy with the final tracks.
What you hear on the album is the culmination of all the music and influences I grew up and have lived with over the years: it is absolutely my identity and honestly represents my musical passions.
Unlike many dance albums that are little more than a collection of thrown-together club tracks, Noir combines tirelessly creative songwriting with multi-faceted production that reveals fresh delights with every listen: a timeless release from a truly singular artist.
