Douster (ARG) and Black Noise (UK) at Academy!
ALLIANCE @ ACADEMY FRIDAYS!!
Alliance is back this Friday July 30 to welcome the party rockers Douster and Black Noise to our dance floor!
DOUSTER (ARG) is the epitome of the globalized beatmaker. He resided in Latin America for 2 years and now, at 23 years old, he draws influences from both France and the Latino locales. Highly connected to the blogosphere he accesses new sounds daily, with hints of kuduro, kwaito, dancehall, cumbia and other global dance music dripping off of newer songs and with an obvious reverence for roots music as a base.
Over the past year, Douster has been steadily growing into his own sound; playful, confident, fresh, with a swagger. The DJ you show up to hear, wherever the party is, whoever is sharing the bill, because you know you will dance through his set without pause.
When The Futureheads started their new label this year their first choice of remixer was Black Noise.
When Southern Fried needed someone to take their Diplo and Laidback Luke release to another level they contacted Black Noise. And when Ministry Of Sound put together their wish list for remixers of the globally successful ‘Riverside (Lets Go!)’ it was Black Noise who were added to that list.
Its been a hectic 12 months for the three man team from the South Coast of England. They’ve had two EP’s released on Norman Cook’s celebrated Southern Fried label and have another two to complete before a debut album will drop on the label later in the year. They have racked up 15 remixes and have topped the Hype Machine charts with their remix of Crookers ft. Wiley.
