Coaxing nuanced expression from analog machines and digital possibilities alike, Noah Pred has been envisioning the future through electronic music for over twenty years. Following his 2018 release of two full-lengths charting the territories between deep space experimentalism, intricate polyrhythms, delicate soundscapes, evocative acid, and expansive dub frontiers, 2019 saw him reinterpreting his signature production style anew with a slew of raw, minimalist, hypnotic techno EPs.
A two-time Juno Award nominee in his native Canada, a music educator and technologist in his adopted hometown Berlin, an alum of Cynosure, Highgrade, and Trapez LTD, and founder of the acclaimed Thoughtless imprint, Noah is also a DJ whose past residencies at Stereobar in Montreal and Fukhouse in Toronto helped lay the framework for his dynamic yet fluid sets that continue to resonate with diverse communities.
A notable member of Canada’s burgeoning underground of the early 2000s, Pred’s distinctive production style earned him a place among his peers with releases on Immigrant, Intrinsic Design, and Consigned Recordings. Driven by the fuel that fired up Thoughtless, Noah relocated to Berlin in 2011, where his creative horizons continued to expand via collaborative projects with Tom Clark as False Image on Get Physical, with Pablo Bolivar on Apparel and Biotop, with Tim Xavier on Alphahouse, and with Deepchild as Concubine.
Between his recent solo EPs for Traumraum, Compute, and Face To Face, his vivid sets of techno, house, and electro, the advanced sound design of his haunting atmospherics, and the ever-evolving scope of his technical capabilities, Noah’s commitment to electronic innovation remains as strong as ever - and in the face of global uncertainty, his utopian sonic narratives have never felt so vital.
