Noire State | Pariah + Minor Science on Friday 6th November 2020
Noire State proudly presents our opening rave at Kable Club on the 6th of November. Join us for our first show as we bring Minor Science over from Berlin, and Pariah from London. Both heavyweights in the UK scene, this will be one to remember.
Pariah [R&S, Houndstooth]
London based producer and DJ, Pariah started his musical journey at the tail end of the dubstep scene in the early 2010’s. Alongside artists Space Dimension Controller and James Blake he was critical in revolutionising the sound of the the famed Belgian label R&S during that period.
Since then, Arthur has continued to DJ round the world and play live with Blawan as Karenn.
Pariah has skilfully developed his sound over time, shifting between dubstep, techno, downtempo and ambient styles. His debut album ‘Here From Where We Are’ released in 2018 on Fabric’s Houndstooth label is a strong example of his evolution to date, using meandering melodies, soft bubbling arpeggios and hazy synths to explore the far reaches of his ambient sound.
Minor Science [AD 93]
If Minor Science started his journey as a leftfield house explorer, he has since transformed into engineer of hybrid, hi-tech music which doesn’t quite sound like anything else out there.
His debut, 2014’s Noble Gas EP for connoisseur label The Trilogy Tapes, was played extensively by DJs like Ben UFO, and was described by The Wire as, “a pleasing clip round the ear.” The British producer has since become a key figure on Nic Tasker’s Whities label, reflecting the label’s preference for unique artists with a bold sonic direction.
Since then his music has become crisper, richer and more ambitious, folding disparate styles and sounds into a distinctive vision. Club tracks like “Naturally Spineless” (2016) and “Volumes” (2017) featured on end of year lists from FACT, Mixmag, Crack Magazine and Resident Advisor, and echoed the producer’s formative years in London’s dubstep and bass scene. His beloved remix of Special Request’s “Stairfoot Lane Bunker” (Houndstooth, 2017) fractured jungle into cubist shards, riffing on the playful rave aesthetic of parties like Bang Face – where he is a regular attendee. And the “mixtape”/mini-site Absent Friends Vol II presented an intimate and virtuosically detailed take on ambient music.
Ever refining his DJ style, which collides techno, electro and UK sounds in precise, striking, yet playful ways, Minor Science draws on years of experience playing around the world at respected clubs like Panorama Bar, De School, Nitsa, and Robert Johnson. And his podcasts have routinely featured in best-of roundups from Pitchfork, Crack Magazine and FACT.
2020 sees the release of his long-awaited debut album Second Language, which binds the various threads of his music into a dynamic but compact and elegant statement.
