Kill The Noise, killed the show, dropped the bass

KTNThe man known as Kill the Noise came to Toronto, and did what he does best at the Kool Haus at the end of May. A perfect warm-up for the summer of intensive electronic festivals and shows to come.

Hailing from Rochester, N.Y., Jake Stanczak has built himself a reputation not only based on his own unique composing abilities and mastering of the turntables, but also has a renowned remixing artist.

KTNThe crowd at the Kool Haus that night was ridiculously hot and sweaty as they danced the night away in next to nothing, but giving it their all for the seasoned veteran of the “EDM” world.

Of course I use the term loosely as a vague umbrella for all electronic productions, since it’s hard to label it any other way in this modern musical maze.

But Kill the Noise is better known as a drum and bass artist, a fiddler of dubstep, and a pioneer of the hybrid genre of house and “drumstep.” These combination have led to KTN having some of the greatest progressions and bass drops in his songs._MG_2532 _MG_2348On this night, that’s what the people came to see, and that’s what the people got. Girls and guys alike were going stark raving mad as KTN spun track after track of pure gold, keeping the fans wanting more long after the lights went down.

KTN has been on the music market for a long time, turning 35 this year and having been in the game since his early 20s.

Even though he’s been around for much longer than some of today’s most prominent EDM artists such as Skrillex and Dillon Francis, yet he stills draws inspiration from them, as much as they do him. _MG_2278 _MG_2171Not to mention he does some of his best work laying down remixes of artists like these two and many more. This is what has kept the man prominent in this competitive age, he has an uncanny ability to adapt and evolve with the times. Needless to say, KTN isn’t going anywhere but up.
