LOCAL HERO // Noise Floor Crew - Chicago, IL
Starting work in the spring of 2008, Noise Floor Crew plus contributors (including 12th Planet of Cartel, Renegade Hardware and Tech Itch) released a remix album of Portishead’s “Third,” called “Third Floor: Portishead’s ”Third” Reimagined by Noise Floor Crew.” Media such as New York Magazine (who heralded NFC in the same breath as Outkast, Three-Six Mafia and My Morning Jacket), Big Shot Magazine, Raveline and others praised “Third Floor” roundly. The singles peppered dozens of prominent radio broadcasts, including Josh Wink’s Radio One Essential Mix for the BBC and Dave Clarke’s White Noise Radio. Following the buzz from “Third Floor,” Noise Floor Crew members amassed remixes and production work over the next year for everyone from Justice and Simian Mobile Disco to DJ Pierre, Dizee Rascal, Lauren Flax with Sia and Greenskeepers. Their production duties on DJ Pierre’s remix of “Cruel Intentions” by Simian Mobile Disco earned two of the members accolades from Pete Tong, who appointed the song as his coveted “Essential New Tune of the Week.” Justice and DJ Pierre then tapped NFC for a rerub of Justice’s hit, “Stress,” on the Afro Acid label, which was subsequently re-edited by Boys Noize. As a result of their work for Pierre on the Justice project, Noise Floor Crew was selected to round out the production team on Pierre’s debut album for Xmix, as he joins the roster with Felix da Housecat, Armand Van Helden and Todd Terry. Noise Floor Crew, currently comprised of Lady Foursquare (AKA The Black Madonna) and aKademy (formerly Local Hero) are currently touring the US and working in the studio awaiting the release of two EPs on Dust Traxx and Idiot House respectively as well as remixes for such artists as DJ Pierre, Bird Peterson and Acid Jacks.
