What happens if you mix breakbeat, grime, hip-hop and obscure electronica with plain straight old techno. You get Noisebud. You know when Johannes got the last touch on a track of techno influences and when it’s hard to find the first beat in a bar you probably listen to the deranged beats by sol

Biography

Noisebud is a Swedish electronic music duo, formed in 2008 in Stockholm, Sweden. The group consists of Sol Andersson and Johannes Ahlberg. The combination of Johannes straight forward techno productions mixed with Sols darker and more obscure productions forms a progressive, dark, aggressive but yet playful soundscape.

They started to work together early 2008 when they joined forces under the name Cotton Buds for a remix competition held by the Dutch music forum Foem. The track to remix was a production from British techno producer Luke Slater and the track was called “Head Converter”. The most noticeable thing with their remix is that they rerecorded all the vocals with Sol instead of Luke, not something you usually would do when it comes to remixes. Their submission won the contest among about 140 submitted remixes. The price was to be released on Luke Slater’s label Mote Evolver. Right after the competition they changed their name to Noisebud and started to work on their first original productions. The next media fuzz come when they participated in another remix competition, this time initiated by Swedish producer and artist Håkan Lidbo, but it wasn’t any of his work that was about to be remixed it was the Swedish National Anthem “Du gamla, Du fria”. Noisebud’s contribution was a mash up where they had smashed every part of the song apart and then reconstruct the pieces like a wrongly laid puzzle. Not a too popular thing to do and the reactions didn’t wait.

August 2009 they participated in the project “Oljud Stockholm”, a project where both established and upcoming electronic music acts where challenged with the task to make music out of city noise. The project was presented on an exhibition in the Stockholm Music Museum in august 2009 where Noisebud produced music out of the sounds generated in a McDonalds kitchen. They later performed the result live in the kitchen of an McDonalds in the central parts of Stockholm.
