Formed in late 2010, WHYT NOYZ consists of David Sidley and Duncan Murray, two lifelong friends who grew up sharing a passion for electronic music.
In three short years the duo have created a unique style that combines driving techno, live drums and innovative vocal samples to devastating effect. Early demos were picked up by none other than Richie Hawtin who quickly signed one of the tracks “Volcano” to his Minus12 label. “Volcano” was then released as part of Richie’s Mixmag “New Horizons” compilation. This laid a solid foundation for WHYT NOYZ and lead to further support from two of their biggest inspirations in the form of Pan Pot and Dubfire. After meeting Dubfire in Ibiza, and being inspired by his set at Space, the guys went on to produce an E.P for him which was released on SCI+TEC and hit the top 40 of the Beatport Techno charts.
Following the SCI+TEC E.P they started to receive support from some more of the heavyweights of Techno and were asked to write E.Ps for Sian’s Octopus Recordings and Kaiserdisco’s KD Music along with remixes for good friend Arjun Vagale, Alex Costa and Monika Kruse’s label Terminal M. If that wasn’t enough Pan-Pot signed one of their tracks for their Sonne Mond Sterne Compilation.
They followed up on this success by signing their first full E.P to Minus. The E.P titled “Back To The Future E.P” consists of 4 tracks that Richie heavily supported throughout the 2013 season of ENTER along with a 5th Digital Bonus track that Richie has played for the past three years. The E.P hit the top 5 of the Techno release charts on Beatport and saw support from Pete Tong on his BBC Radio 1 show.
Following on from the Back To The Future E.P the boys have spent 2014 travelling across Europe supporting Richie Hawtin at Minus events such as the legendary Ten Days Off in Belgium, Kappa Futur Festival in Turin and back on home soil for their gig warming up for Richie at Fabric, London. As they progressed into the summer of 2014 this brought their second Minus E.P titled “It Grows”. Once again full of tracks that Richie had been supporting in his sets along with great support from the likes of Adam Beyer and Dubfire.
Heading into the final stages of the year, the boys are writing an album with a very exciting concept. Keep your eyes and ears peeled!
