Black Noi$e, aka Rob Mansel, is a Detroit-based producer and DJ working in currents of hip-hop, house, and techno. As a DJ and producer, Black Noi$e has worked extensively with ZelooperZ, producing much of his début, "Bothic" and co-producing "Everlast" on ZGTO's "A Piece of the Geto." In May, Black Noi$e released a collaborative digital album with Navy Blue called "Soul Golden."
The "Time Crisis" EP for Portage Garage Sounds continues his forward-thinking, genre bending productions expressed in his first dance 12" released earlier this year on Vanity Press. Beginning the EP, "Fight Riff" is boxing stance aquatic footwork. Next, "Creepy Crawlers" is exactly what it's titled. Side B starts with "232", the most emotional song of the year (2017). And "V98.7"? Still smooth.
Catch "DM Nation," the new radio show from SKYWLKR and Black Noi$e every fourth Sunday of the month on Red Bull Radio.
"John, play the fight riff, play it."
"No matter what your instrument, keep dancing."
NOTE: There are TWO versions of this release:
We are trying something new, in that we want to offer the option of two individual experiences for owning a physical copy of this EP (PGS 003) by Black Noi$e.
The first unlimited "White Label" version comes with printed insert & a protective polysleeve. 4 CLUB USE ONLY(?)
The second is more in line with the release of PGS 002, in that we're producing a professionally printed jacket with artwork and labels, giving the listener a more refined experience for home listening–or the club.

When I put this album on I feel like I've been transported to another place and time. Purple pastel buildings and lights as far as the eye can see, an endless metropolis that exists as a dream. steverie
