Dutch drum & bass / breakbeat trio are set to launch their own label, and quite possibly their best single yet…
Look at them. An ugly bunch really aren't they? But, as the old adage goes; you don't have to be good looking to run a record label. And, as anyone who knows so much as a smidgeon about Noisia well attest, they do make exceptionally ugly music. (We're talking rudeboy ugly here folks, not wouldn't-touch-with-a-barge-pole ugly).
Having already made a name for themselves with heavyweight D&B cuts such as 'End Game' or 'Brainstitch' (on Virus and Shogun respectively), last year the trio began to make excursions into slower tempos. The end product ('Gutterpump' on Passenger) garnered warm responses beyond their wildest dreams… A rugged blend of rampant beats and filthy bass, it swiftly became top tune with iDJ's crack breakbeat squad and a regular platter with many a top ranking breaks baron. With such a great response, 'Gutterpump' gave them the inspiration to set up their own label dedicated to their energetic breakbeat sound and the first fruits of this endeavour will be available on June 18.
The high octane double A 'Yellow Brick / Raar' is as ugly as the trio get and takes references from the worlds of electro, techno, D&B and breakbeat. In iDJ's opinion it's likely to be as huge as 'Gutterpump', making Division one monster label to look out for in 2007
