It’s been a while since my last artist feature… and I’m happy to say that this new artist is a dope one. The duo is known as MakeNoize; a collaboration between SIDETRACK and k1DL!ONEL, who are two guys from L.A. who decided it was a good idea to team up and start producing music. The world is a better place because of it. The tracks they have been pouring out of the studio are sick as f*ck and you absolutely will want to check them out. We have an exclusive interview for you to peruse, as well as a few tracks to download and some previews of new ones coming out! Whew. Lots for you to enjoy… so get to it!

Who is MakeNoize?
We are two guys form Los Angeles who recently teamed up. Although we both come from different styles were able to work together by combining our ideas and coming up with some insane shit!
Why is music important to you?
Music is a passion; it’s a way to express ourselves, a way to be creative… it’s everything. It’s very important to us and it helps us in so many ways.
What made you choose electronic music?
Growing up around with the music around here like punk, metal, etc, it wasn’t enough for us (not that we have a problem with those). Then when the electronic music came around we were like “Wow.” We knew right then and there what we wanted to do.
Where does your inspiration come from?
Our inspiration comes from people who ever doubted us and thought we would never make it. We wanted to prove them wrong. But most of all it comes from the passion for music and the love for it and for our families.
What equipment and programs do you use in production?
As of now we are producing and mixing with Ableton. The equipment we use includes an Akai Apc 40, Korg Nano 2, Akai Pro LPD8, M-Audio Torq, and an Evolution uc33 control.
Who is your favorite artist and why?
There are too many to name LOL.
Do you have any goals with your music?
We hope to go somewhere with it. We would love to play around the country and eventually around the world someday, and we hope to keep producing insane music for our fans.
What is one thing people should know about you?
They should know that we are here to make music for everyone’s ears, and the ones that don’t like us can hate all they want, because for every one of them that hate there will be five more that love us.
What’s next for MakeNoize?
More label releases and many more collaborations.
Anything else you’d like to mention?
MakeNoize loves you all!
