Whether he is traveling the world djing at some of the finest parties on the planet, or producing tracks that gain support from the cream of the world’s elite players, Noir (aka René Kristensen) remains one of the industry’s most respected and hard working individuals.
Already with over 10 years experience under his belt, Noir gave up his daytime job at the end of 2003 to focus and concentrate on his dj and producing career, and he has never looked back. After spending most of 2004 concentrating on perfecting his sound, Noir got his debut with signings on more than 10 labels including Toolroom Records, Data, Juicy, Oxyd Records, Deeplay and Warner.
It was during this time that his massive track “My MTV” was unveiled. Quickly snapped up by Toolroom, the track swiftly gained support from every key dj on the planet, and duly rocketed to number 2 in the Buzz Chart and number 4 in the Miami Buzz Chart. It shot to number 1 in the Beatport chart – staying in the top 10 for more than 3 weeks – whilst also hitting number 1 on Dj Download.
Further tracks “Helpless“, “We Got Love” and “Feel Alive” continued to push the boundaries, whilst his superb collaborations with Katherine Ellis, Roland Clark, Chris Lake, Ian Carey, Paul Harris, D. Ramirez, Olav Basoski, Robbie Rivera and Granite & Phunk amongst others were immediate hits on labels that included Onephatdeeva, DTPM, Southern Fried, Gossip, House Session, Sume and Double Frequency.
If you want to listen to great production of Rene Kristensen you must check not only his Noir works, but also such monikers as Decaff, Soul Flava and RNK. Rene also created huge amount of remixes on such artists as Arias, Bart B More, Djuma Soundsystem, John Acquaviva, Deadmau5, Norman Doray, Superbass and Matt Samuels.
In late 2007 Noir decided to start Noir Music, and the label is now established as one of the most forward thinking imprints on the market. Noir Music serves as an outlet for his own productions whilst also showcasing some of the best new producers in music, and releases that include “Super Skunk“, “Sweet Devil“, “All About House Music“, “Icicle“, “Quartro Uno Sei” and “Burner King” have hit the top spots on charts for Beatport and countless other download sites.
In February 2009 Noir released his debut album entitled “Best of (2006-2009)” and received the award for best upfront deejay of the year at DDJA. 2009 was also the year where Noir Music (the label) became one of the most popular and best selling house-labels in the world mainly because of the high quality level and the now very famous compilation series called “Dark Stars“.
Latest works from Noir include track “Africanism” released on label Neurotraxx Deluxe on 4th November, 2010.
