[ITEMS AND THINGS]
The Troy Pierce sound is one which has constantly veered from dense, layered and abstract to stripped down, acid infused and pulsing. His sonic palette is one that draws on a wide array of influences and reaches far outside the confines of the studio and into an otherworld entirely. Fusing techno with minimalism, darkness with light and heaviness with rhythm, this American has never been afraid to experiment in the outer regions of his vast musical universe. Despite an already impressive list of accolades to his name, Troy Pierce isn’t one to sit still. Keen as ever to confound your expectations, Items & Things, new Louderbach music and a number of exciting collaborations are sure to do just that as he enters the next phase of his musical evolution.

Formed in late 2010, WHYT NOYZ consists of David Sidley and Duncan Murray, two lifelong friends who grew up sharing a passion for electronic music. David is a talented drummer and percussionist whilst Duncan prefers to get lost in a synthesizer. These two elements combine perfectly to produce a sound that has its foundation in rhythm and bass but still holds a strong musical element. Inspired by the likes of Richie Hawtin, Booka Shade, Trentemøller and Dubfire, the duo found their middle ground in a love of underground house music and driving techno. This widespread interest in dark and twisted up-tempo, electronic music laden in jackin beats and intricate melodies has made WHYT NOYZ what they are today.
