Rhythmic, Groove, Technical, Brutal, Captivating, Face Melting are all adjectives that do not even come close to touching the tip of the iceberg when it comes to describing the sound, image and movement exploding right now out of Southern California. The source of this decibel shattering, mind-numbing, captivating phenomenon? Los Angeles metal outfit, VOLUMES.

VOLUMES are a collection of five young musicians coming from a wide array of musical backgrounds, ranging from jazz, classical, post-rock to rap and of course metal. VOLUMES eclectic tastes blend together to forge a creative bond between several types of genres that are worlds apart. The combination of their efforts results in fusions between intricate patterns, melodies, and progressive.. yet-not-to-be-overlooked-aggressive, straight to the point, metal. This particular blend of musical styles strives to find a balance between chaos and tranquility. Standing out in their genre is the fact that VOLUMES have two lead-vocalists who utilize their different ranges to create a layered, charismatic volatile sound which leave all listeners begging for more.

Having just signed on with MEDIASKARE RECORDS & OUTERLOOP MANAGEMENT, VOLUMES quickly released their unforgettable fan favorite EP titled: 'The Concept Of Dreaming'. Wasting no time, VOLUMES immediately begin work on their currently entitled debut full length "VIA" that hit #1 on iTunes Metal the first day. With their whole career starting to unfold, and the world ahead of them VOLUMES are not a band you want to overlook.. be forewarned.
Fire From The Gods
Heavy music deserves a heavier message.

That's what Fire From The Gods deliver on their Rise Records debut, Narrative.

Speaking from a platform cast in heavy metal power, hip-hop consciousness, and even a little reggae spirit, the Austin, TX quintet—AJ Channer [vocals], Jameson Teat [guitar], Drew Walker [guitar], Bonner Baker [bass], and Richard Wicander [drums]—urge for change through conveying a story that's both personal and universal.

That story stems directly from AJ's life. Born in the Bronx to a single mother of Jamaican descent, he spent his childhood moving between London, New York City, Los Angeles, Norfolk, and even Ghana where he attended middle school. Drawing from this diverse experience, he speaks with unmitigated honesty about the state of the world.
Noir
Whether he is travelling the world DJing at some of the finest parties on the planet, or producing tracks that gain support from the cream of the world's dj elite, Noir (a.k.a. René Kristensen) remains one of the industry's most respected and hard working individuals.
With over 10 years experience under his belt, Noir gave up his daytime job at the end of 2003 to focus on his dj and production career and hasn't looked back since. After spending most of 2004 concentrating on perfecting his sound, Noir got his international debut in 2005 and has since had release on labels such as Toolroom, Neurotraxx Deluxe, BluFIn, Global Underground, Parquet Recordings, Monique Musique and of course his own well-respected imprint Noir Music.

Support for his innovative sound was unprecedented with Dubfire, Carl Cox, Luciano,
Pete Tong, Mark Knight, Nic Fanciulli and Roger Sanchez amongst the major supporters for his productions from day one. Today Noir has won awards for both his production and his dj'ing skills and the creative mastermind continues to evolve and improve his talents.

The hits
Noir's international breakthrough came with the release of "All About House Music" released on Wyze Recordings in 2005 and with the release of "My Mtv" in 2006 on Toolroom Records he reached the no. 1 spot on digital outlets such as Beatport, DJ Download and Traxsource.
His recent success "Africanism" released on Neurotraxx Deluxe hit the number 1 spot on Beatport's deephouse chart (top 3 overall chart) and stayed in the top 10 for more than 4 months.
