Producing dance music and performing live for the past ten years, Noah Pred emerged from Vancouver’s underground as a sought-after techno DJ with a sophisticated sound and unique style. Devoted to authentic and soulful strains of techno in all its permutations, Noah’s sound continues to evolve while remaining firmly driven by the dancefloor.
Since his first records were released, his productions have received international support, garnering critical acclaim while moving dancefloors across the globe. As a DJ and live act, he’s toured throughout Europe and North America, performing alongside such diverse artists as Josh Wink, Mathew Jonson, and James Holden. After a three-year stint in Montreal working for Consigned Recordings while holding a residency at Stereobar, Noah relocated to the West Coast to produce his field recording based techno full-length, ‘Ecocosm’, which was soon released on New Kanada.
Exploring his compositional versatility, Pred launched the Shen project in 2004. Geared towards digital downtempo, electronic dub and emotive IDM, Shen provided a creative outlet for productions that roam beyond the borders of clubland. Noah’s debut Shen full-length, ‘Outlines’, was released on Native State Records in late 2006.
Now based in Toronto, Pred has developed a loyal and devoted following for his potent DJ sets while running the digital imprint Thoughtless Music from his studio headquarters. His recent productions and remixes have been causing a buzz, and following high profile performances at last year’s MUTEK and Decibel festivals, Noah’s poised for exciting things in the year ahead – with his latest full-length ‘Blind Alignments’ out now on Thoughtless.
