Noisia!

The trio in the album artwork for Split The Atom.

Nik Roos, Thijs de Vlieger and Martijn van Sonderen, also known as Noisia, were a bass music production trio based in from Groningen, The Netherlands.

Releasing their first record in 2003 on SLR and releasing on every major drum&bass label in the following years, 2005 saw Noisia establish their own label, Vision Recordings to put out their drum&bass productions and collaborations and retain creative control of their music. Nik's designs almost all of the artwork for the releases on their labels, and the guys love the challenges and rewards that come with running a label. In 2007 they established Division Recordings, a label for electro, house, breaks and dubstep. They then went on to establish Invisible Recordings in 2010, catering for the deeper and more experimental side of drum&bass.

Over the past few years, accolades for Noisia have included Best Tech DJ in the UK National D&B Awards in 2009 and 2010, Best Producers at the 2010 D&BArena Awards and Best Drum&Bass Artist on Beatport in both 2009 and 2010.

Collaborations[]

The guys have worked with, and remixed a number of diverse artists, with notable tracks including, ‘Alice’ by

Moby, ‘Omen’ by The Prodigy, ‘E.T.’ by Katy Perry, ‘Scary Monsters and Nice Sprites’ by Skrillex, ‘Raise your Weapon’ by Deadmau5, and Hadouken, whose entire second album ‘For The Masses’ was produced by Noisia. They have collaborated on a number of tracks with Foreign Beggars, the most successful being ‘Contact’, which has garnered over 3 million views on YouTube and become an influential underground hit. Another Noisia video that has been a big hit on YouTube is ‘Exodus’ which took 3 years to make and features KRS One.

Noisia have been Dj’ing every weekend since 2004. They have played in major cities all over the world, from Sydney to Moscow, Tokyo to Berlin, Los Angeles to Johannesburg and have DJ’ed in some of the world’s biggest clubs. They have reduced their DJ’ing commitments recently in order to focus on production.Video Games

Noisia's track Groundhog is the hardest to beat in the first DJ Hero, Machine Gun and Seven Stitches feature in three editions of the game WipeOut, and ‘Stigma’ and 'Yellow Brick' were picked up by PlayStation to be featured on Gran Turismo. They were commissioned to make 8 remixes especially for Motorstorm Apocalypse, a triple-A racing game that was released in March 2011.

End of the trio[]

On 18 September 2019, the trio announced they would be splitting at the end of 2020, citing creative differences and feeling like "Noisia is a game we have completed...A good artist should know when an artwork is finished." in their final year, they will embark on a final tour, present the final season of their podcast Noisia Radio, and release their final collection of music as a group. The three will continue to release music under solo projects after the split, and likely occasionally collaborate with each other again, not under the Noisia name.

However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Noisia announced that the split would be postponed until they are able to embark on their final tour.
