LaNoiraude releases Safari Through Unusual Layers

Following his tribute to the beat-down sound of Detroit, 'Paris Beatdown EP', LaNoiraude is back on Parisian labelDialect Recordings with his first full length album 'Safari Through Unusual Layers'.

Parisian DJ and composer, Arnaud Malherbe AKA LaNoiraude began producing in 1999, when he bought his first sampler. Released in 2001, His first maxi 'Love Linge' (Missive) was well received by both the press and public.

From 'Les Yeux Secs'', tale of a painful break-up, to 'Hit By Cops', the title of which says it all, we're taken on a journey through House, Techno, Ambient and African territories. The album offers several dancefloor burners - 'Mbife' feat Fania, 'After Hours' feat. jjscenario, 'Mechanical Traction' and 'Hit By Cops' - as well as more delicately arranged compositions - 'Khen Hook', 'Bloom Doudouk', 'Wild Spaghetti' and 'Stayin' Home' - combining electronic and analogue layers in a very soulful and introspective way.

The album features great collaborations from talented musicians and singers Didier Malherbe (from legendary band Gong), Wilder Zoby, Jeremy Wilms and Yusuke Yamamoto of Chin Chin (signed to Dialect), Gilles Lamberton, Fania and jjscenario
