Friday 5th August 2016 – Dutch electronic music trio, Noisia, have this week been forced to rush release their long awaited new album, ‘Outer Edges’, after it leaked and appeared online last Friday night. The band were made aware ten minutes before they unveiled their debut ‘Outer Edges’ audio visual show at the Czech Republic’s Let It Roll festival.
The earliest opportunity to make ‘Outer Edges’ available on all DSPs and streaming services was today, Friday 5th August. The 18-track album is their first in six years and was originally scheduled for release on 16th September. Earlier this week the band and their label, Vision, made ‘Outer Edges’ available on their own webstore (https://store.visionrecordings.nl/). Vinyl and CD versions of the album will still be released on 16th September.
With a peerless reputation and countless awards under their belts, 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 Nik, Martijn, and Thijs’s 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.
Expert sound design is inherent to all of Noisia’s work and they use complex and intricate production techniques to create music that draws an unconstrained, palpable energy from dancefloors and festival arenas alike. In this respect, ‘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 (the superb ‘Tentacles’ is testament to this). ‘Outer Edges’ shows Noisia in uncompromising form; ‘Collider’, ‘Anomaly’, ‘Mantra’, and ‘Get Deaded’ are four 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 recently launched their ‘Outer Edges’ tour at Poland’s Let It Roll, and the trio’s new audio visual touring concept, featuring their biggest production to date, will be hitting the following European festivals from late July, Sziget, Pukkelpop, Lowlands, SW4, Outlook, and a newly announced headline show during ADE at Melkweg (21/10). Further ‘Outer Edges’ shows, plus Noisia DJ dates, will be announced soon.
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.”
