Brazilian techno pioneer Anderson Noise is witnessing a sea change in his native country. With electronic music undergoing a renaissance in Brazil, Noise is undoubtedly one of its architects, having been a tireless techno advocate as DJ, promoter of the Club Noise events, and broadcaster with his weekly online TV show, TV Noise.
"Techno was hidden for a while but now it seems to be growing again," reckons Noise.

Noise has been putting in the work this year, with many notable gigs under his belt.
"The live broadcast in real time of [fellow Brazilian techno head] Gui Boratto's 'Chromophobia' album at the release party at D-Edge Club, which was broadcasted on TV Noise, was great; and playing again at The End, in London, and at The Rex, in Paris, were definite highlights."

Noise is also one of the most important acts in the genesis of Brazil's electronic music fest Skol Beats, and in the future he'll continue to raise his empire to ever louder frequencies, with his Noise Music stable dropping quality release after quality release.
