This past Friday, Detroit producer Black Noi$e celebrated Juneteenth by announcing his upcoming project Oblivion would be releasing on Earl Sweatshirt‘s Tan Cressida imprint on Warner Records. Noi$e made the announcement by premiering a new music video for his first single “The Band” featuring Liv.e. A press release announced the partnership:
“We at Tan Cressida are beyond excited to announce our first non-Sweatshirt release ever! Black Noi$e presents the aptly titled Oblivion to a restless people. For those who don’t know Black Noi$e the person: think Grim from Billy and Mandy with a mean nollie flip and an affinity for life in all its forms. These polarities are reflected in Black Noi$e the music. Shadows and sunlight. Detroit electric soul and 8-bit ghosts and waterfalls. Black Noi$e connects the dots and we are thankful for the opportunity to experience this life and his music. Love, management.”
Black Noi$e started producing music back in high school and was a member of hardcore and punk bands throughout Detroit. “I was always interested in the stuff that wasn’t in the forefront,” he said in a recent press release. Detroit’s eclectic musical history from iconic soul through its techno to J Dilla’s undeniable legacy had a profound impact on the producer’s work. “I always appreciated music and just wanted to learn where the sounds were coming from,” he said. “Where I was from there wasn’t a place to get CDs that weren’t mainstream,” he continued. “I was on the internet. That really helped understand where stuff came from.”
