Noir mixes ‘Use Your Ears 2013,’ presents all exclusive, no-nonsense compilation
The Danish legend Noir, recently off a successful Essential Mix, has just released a new mix on Defected Records with fifteen exclusive tracks — a laundry list of some of his favorite producers at the moment, as well as a fantastic mashup of two megahits Noir & Haze’s “Around ” with Ron Costa’s remix of Compact Grey’s “Bane.” The mix features a new track from Hot Since 82, several new remixes from Noir himself, and work from Nice7, Supernova, Deep Future, and Gorge. When asked to describe how he selected tracks for this mix, he explained these were records he was listening to mostly while running so instead of choosing based on artist name or reputation he was simply “using his ears” to put together the mix. This resulted in a collection both truly representative of his taste in dance music and a compilation that really shows no weaknesses. Enjoy a preview of the tracks below and purchase on iTunes from Defected Records.
