KILL THE NOISE
LA based producer and DJ, Jake Stanczak, professionally known as Kill the Noise, will be releasing his debut full length, ‘OCCULT CLASSIC’ through Skrillex’s OWSLA label on October 9th. Similarly to his previous OWSLA released EPs, Kill Kill Kill (2011) and Black Magic (2012), the new album will blend sounds from the current dance scene into years of his own experience in multi-genre production.
The ‘OCCULT CLASSIC’ LP opens with the Rock City and AWOLNATION featured “Kill It 4 the Kids” single, whose whirlwind of lighters-up metal, signature bass growls and festival sized synthwork make up one of the release’s many style hopping switch ups; including the Youtube flavored baltimore club of the “Dolphin on Wheels” collaboration with Dillon Francis, the rowdy dubstep-meets-drum & bass head banger, “Spitfire Riddim” with Madsonik, and the razor sharp bassline-backed electro thump of “Louder” with Tommy Trash.
At times, the album feels like a snapshot of his adrenaline fueled live sets, which he’s performed from some of the most iconic stages in the world (Coachella, Lollapalooza, EDC Las Vegas, Holy Ship! and the Mad Decent Block Party). In the midst of touring and working on music over the last few years, Kill the Noise has also received MTV Clubland’s Music Video pick of the year twice (2012, 2013), he’s collaborated on official releases with Skrillex, Korn, Passion Pit, and Flux Pavilion, and he co-wrote and produced 2014’s “Shell Shocked” from Paramount Picture’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles soundtrack alongside Wiz Khalifa, Juicy J, and Ty Dolla $ign.
Before he gained notoriety as the dubstep phenom Kill the Noise, Jake Stanczak had been concocting dance-floor bangers for years. The experience has given him a sense of restlessness, even in the midst of his current success.ROLLING STONE
