Anderson Noise – Londrina (mp3 EP) – Harthouse
A pioneer by definition is the first one to open roads into virtually undiscovered territory.The career of DJ and producer Anderson Noise is one as pioneer of the electronic music scence in Brazil. Native of Belo Horizonte, Minas Gerais, Noise started DJ ing in a slow but steady manner as is the custom in his region of Brazil. Yet he never forget to take the necessary steps to insure total success. In 1989, during the explosion of Acid House on the club scene, Noise started playing around the local circuit in his hometown. With the professional passion for DJ ing, hes noted for saying that, the function of a DJ is to emote the audience or bring them to an emotional frenzy. He won the trophy for the best producer and the best DJ of techno music which was called the “Night Illustrated” award created by Erika Palomino from the newspaper “A Folha De São Paulo”. The faíscas trophy, an award Noise Won 3 years in a row was offered by the Minas Newspaper, “O Estado de Minas” for those artists that shook up the nightlife in Belo Horizonte and in 2003 he was runner up in the Cool Magazine Awards, Brazils most elegant electronic music magazine. The trophy was given to him in the subsequent year of 2004, as best DJ. Anderson has always participated in the major national/Brazilian Eletronic Music Events. His presence was felt by all in every edition of the Skol Beats Festival since it’s inception, serendipitously closing the 2003 Skol Beats Festival with great fanfare. In 2003 Anderson was invited by “DJ Magazine”, the worlds most respected publication dedicated to electronic music, to produce the CD, “DJ World Series, Anderson Noise”. In a series of 5 records that the magazine released, where each DJ, representing a different continent would make a record representing his continent of origin, Anderson was chosen to represent Latin America. From then on Noise’s international career kept growing steadily. He has participated in the biggest international festivals: Homelands, Dance Valley, Creamfields, Sonar, Exit, Rock in Rio Lisboa, SAMC, Knebworth Ministry of Sound, etc. Noises records have been released by international labels such as Audio, Eukatech, Mentor, Missile and Molecular and are being played throughout the world. As far as Noise is concerned, there exists no limits that can’t be surpassed. This is surely a great virtue for those who are of a creative and pioneering nature.

Andrew Grant – Blue Vista (mp3 EP)
Hailing from the Washington DC area, Andrew Grant’s DJ history dates back to 1988 when he was spinning hip-hop at house parties and school dances. But, his musical tastes turned to electronica after his first trip to NYC’s Twilo in the mid 90s. Andrew first visit to Europe was in 2000 playing in Dublin on New Years Eve and then in Paris. He stayed in Europe and in 2001, purchased a one-way ticket from England to the White Isle. He came to Ibiza with a passion to play top venues. Soon after he was invited to play Thursday morning afterhours @ DC10. After just two sets he was invited to play a main 3-5 hour slot at Circoloco after Cirillo, his mentor. Combined with his aggressive mixing and ability to layer sounds, he keeps his sound perpetually fresh, deep and driving. His sets are packed with sinister beats, lonely echoes from the use of his third deck, and perfect bridges between tracks. And when needed he has an uncanny ability to layer bass for extra punch. Along with playing ARC (Vinyl) in NYC and at Crobar @ WMC 2004 along Timo Maas, he frequently plays at Goa in Rome and at Tribehouse in Germany. He has played with Fatboy Slim, Sander K, Tania Vulcano, Behrouz, Dan Ghenacia, Sven Väth, Craig Richards, Mr. C, Richie Hawtin, Ricardo Villalobos and Bill Patrick, among many others. Like the last years, Andrew Grant is the resindent DJ of the Circoloco Ibiza also in the season 2008.
