Need a gift for a gifted musician?
In a time where music lovers from all across the spectrum of genres are increasingly finding common ground in the music they listen to, Noize Hazard is there to deliver. The Vancouver based brothers Zohar and Omri formed the group in 2012, or around that time anyways, with the knowledge and understanding that quality, variety, and emotion, are some of the most important elements in great music. In every Noize Hazard project, there is fusion of electro, hip hop, blues, rock, trance, dubstep, psytrance, glitch hop, and several other subgenres that are words I could just be making up.
No matter the variety of sounds they are mixing together there is a signature sound that develops with every new track, usually consisting of several layers of guitar and synthesizers. Older brother, Zohar (26), has spent years honing his skills on the guitar and pretty much every other instrument he could get his hands on. Now that he has recently finished Law school, he will be spending more time in the studio, and working on other exciting projects. Omri (25), spent the last few years djing, after first playing shows in 2010 while studying at the University of Victoria, and has had the opportunities to play alongside acts such as Felix Cartal, Fedde LeGrand, Wolfgang Gartner, Chris Lake, Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike and others. After spending way too many hours watching Ableton tutorial videos on youtube, he now spends most of his time in the studio with his older brother.
The collaboration in Noize Hazard extends past the brothers. In February 2012, a remix with the Israeli Psytrance group Faders took them to Mexico where Zohar performed live guitar to a few thousand Mexican Psytrance hipsters in Guadalajara. Ever since then they have been inspired to collaborate and create cross-genre music with a lasting impression. More recent Noize Hazard projects include the recording of an album and building a Ratatat-y - Bonobo-esque live show incorporating a dj set with live guitar, keyboards and percussion.
