Noel Sanger - Dissident Music
Two decades, four continents, hundreds of shows and and some of the greatest dance labels in the world. Noel Sanger is an artist who has defined the term longevity, even if escaping household name status. His releases dating back to the mid 90s have been ever sought after, and critically acclaimed, and that trend, along with top DJ support, continues to this day, some 20 years down the line.
Though best known for his prolific underground outpourings, he’s recently seen the top 10 and top 20 of the Billboard Dance Club Chart, the top 10 and top 15 of UK Musicweek’s buzz chart, A slew of Beatport top tens and twenties, and half a dozen #1s at the reputable Kings Of Spin mixshow chart.
He has released over the years on such labels such as Spinnin’, Armada, Perfecto, High Contrast, Lost Language, Coldharbour, Mute and dozens more. He has remixed and worked with artists like Erasure, Nadia Ali, John Taylor of Duran Duran, Matt Darey, Soul In The Machine (with Twin Peaks star Chrysta Bell), and Markus Schulz.
Noel toured extensively with the best known DJ of all time, Tiesto, and even mixed “Summerbreeze 2,” the follow-up to Tiesto’s “Summerbreeze” mix CD on Nettwerk Recordings. Later, he was invited by no less than BT to collaborate on tracks for Tiesto’s Grammy-nominated 2006 album “Elements Of Life.”
Noel’s label imprint, Dissident Music, first launched in 2007 and produced a number of hits throughout the ensuing 7 years. It went dormant in 2014 and has now re-launched in early 2017 with highly acclaimed remixes of Noel’s 1997 classic, “No Greater Love.” A career retrospective “best-of” album released at the start of 2018, and Noel’s very first and long-overdue artist album is in production and is due later in the year.
Noel has rocked stages at festivals such as Ultra Music Festival and Electric Daisy Carnival and his South Florida residencies have hosted some of the biggest names in dance music, with Noel playing to hundreds and even thousands of eager clubbers each week. Now residing in Orlando, Noel plays select shows nationwide and spends his weeks in the studio, remixing and preparing for his upcoming releases.
Few artists remain as relevant after as many years, but between his productions, his label, and his incredible mastery behind the decks, Noel is proving without question that the best is yet to come.
