Boot Noir represents the music label launched by Noir based on DJ Edits strictly for the dancefloor.

One of the planet’s most in demand house DJs and the man behind a hugely successful and pioneering label, he’s also the man responsible for one of the decade’s biggest house tracks so far, 2011’s global club smash ‘Around’. The track, a sexy, synthesizer-tinted groove featuring vocalist Hayze, was by far the biggest of Noir’s career to date. Picked up by house giants Defected, it dominated dancefloors across the world for nearly 18 months - and didn’t just catapult Noir to the front rank of producers and DJs but Solomun (whose subtle, sexy remix became the definitive version) as well.

Giving up his day job at a friend’s gym (“I had convinced them to put a DJ booth in there!”) in 2007 he set up his own label, Noir Music. In 2009 Pirupa & Pigi’s ‘Sweet Devil’, became Noir Music’s first Beatport number one. Since then the label has combined acclaim from DJs and critics (it’s currently the eighth ‘most charted’ label of all time on Resident Advisor) with commercial success; over 180 releases to date (including on sub labels NM2 and Klimaks Records) have garnered too many Beatport top ten hits to count, while the ‘Use Your Ears’ compilation series has consistently showcased the label as one of the best and freshest in house music.

Indeed while Noir maintains that ‘the real kick’ for him is still DJing, thanks to his label (and his bi-monthly podcast), he’s almost as well known for his skills as an A&R / house music tastemaker as he is producer and DJ. Two of this years hottest stars in particular, Hot Since 82 and Finnebassen, first got their break on Noir Music.
