Breaking: Noisia to split after 20 years

Breaking: Noisia to split after 20 yearsNoisia Ballet 1

For 20 years, Noisia’s music has been a pioneering force in the electronic music community. The trio, consisting of Martijn van Sonderen, Nik Roos, and Thijs de Vlieger, has released countless groundbreaking songs and collections of music across labels like OWSLA, mau5trap, Spinnin’, and more.
