Vision Recordings represents the Amsterdam based music label eatablished in 2005 and run by Noisia.
NOISIA (who took their name from the word VISION inverted on an upside down VHS tape) are Nik Roos, Thijs de Vlieger and Martijn van Sonderen, hailing from the Netherlands. Influenced by an eclectic range of artists, from The Prodigy to James Brown, Miles Davis to Konflict, Noisia make music for DJs and dance-floors that is interesting enough to cross over from the clubs to your MP3 player.
Taking the next logical step, the group decided to set up their own label. Having gained their name by reading an upside down VHS tape with the word vision written on it, Noisia re-inverted polarities and Vision Recordings was born.
2005 saw Noisia establish their own label, Vision Recordings to put out their drum&bass productions and collaborations and retain creative control of their music. Nik designs almost all of the artwork for the releases on their labels, and the guys love the challenges and rewards that come with running a label. Vision Recordings biggest releases to date have been The Tide, Exodus Feat. KRS One and Stigma. In 2007 they established Division, a non-D&B label for electro, breaks and house.
Vision has played host to a series of Noisias best singles and EPs, including the anthems Stigma, The Tide, Dustup and KRS One vocalled Exodus, meanwhile the group began forays into remixing the likes of Pendulum, Moby and Amon Tobin and producing tracks for other artists such as Foreign Beggars Contact an incredible bass music/hip hop fusion which was way ahead of its time: All of which led to the release of their debut album Split The Atom in 2010.
Split The Atom was a departure from the norm, featuring a wide range of sounds and styles, but all with that distinctive Noisia sound. This was a culmination of seven years of studio knowledge and musical experimentation and it was received with such resounding success that deadmau5 picked it up for a Special Edition re-release on his own mau5trap label. Packed with dance floor anthems and more subdued moments, Split The Atom was a milestone in Noisias already glittering career.
Meanwhile the group continue to pay homage to their roots by signing and developing some of the most exciting bass music artists to their Vision, Division and Invisible labels, travelling the globe and destroying some of the biggest festivals and arenas in the world - from Coachella to their own Noisia Invites events at Amsterdams infamous Melkweg and their own hometown of Groningen. No matter what Noisias vision is clear, these incredible producers producers will always stick to their guns, pushing an uncompromisingly original, emotional and visceral sound.
