News: 16B to release his new album titled “Silenciety” in July 2019

Posted on Apr 30, 2019

  It’s been over 20 years since Omid Nourizadeh, aka 16B, first exploded on to the electronic music scene with his acclaimed debut album ’Sounds From Another Room’ on Sven Vath’s eye Q /Alola Records. Since then, he has carved out an illustrious career remaining constantly at the forefront of cutting edge dance music, achieving a stellar portfolio of releases including ‘How To Live 100 Years’ (2002) and the two-part ‘Like 3 Ears & 1 Eye’ (2007) albums. For summer 2019, Omid reveals his highly anticipated 4th artist album, ‘Silenciety’, ablaze with thirteen powerful and musically diverse compositions, which Omid describes as “emotionally venerable and musically dramatic”. From cinematic heart-wrenching classical tones, sensitive and drama-filled electronica, to intense outbursts of rousing electro,indie and techno, ‘Silenciety’ is a magical trip that flows between genres and emotions, testament to the unrivalled creativity and depth of this ever forward-thinking artist. ‘Silenciety’ demonstrates a world of tension and harmony, pairing opposites that slowly melt away to leave a more complete, less unilateral experience; both positive and the negative side by side complementing one another. “There’s not one track that sounds similar to another, yet they’re all connected and nothing feels out of place. I felt there was no point making a fashionable album, as I’m more interested in a timeless body of work, something that doesn’t sound like anything else, something you rarely get to hear”.- 16B ‘Silenciety’ Album will be released on July 1st 2019 on aLOLa Records. The album will also be released as a 2 pack vinyl edition.

Various Artists – Inequality Ep

Next up, 16B’s take on Subversive Attraction’s ‘Jack’s Plan’ delivers more hazy action and hypnotic beats. Omid’s ‘Class Of 88’ is also included in this release.

16B – B4LP (Part 3)

16B – B4LP (Part 3)

Renowned London artist 16B prepares the final instalment of his three part ‘B4LP’ series ahead of this year’s album, featuring four varying cuts demonstrative of his diverse production abilities. Omid Nourizadeh is a bonafide house and techno legend with a genre-pushing career that includes remixing the likes of Lana del Rey, The Cure, Todd Terry and Gus Gus, releasing on seminal labels like Bedrock, Tsuba and Yoshitoshi, not to mention curating mix comps such as Balance 13 (SOS), Sounds Like Alola and Ministry of Sound (Club series – SOS). Whether as a producer or as a DJ, Omid has purveyed a wide ranging scope of dance music since day one and he has continued to do so with his ‘B4LP’ series, with the first two releases reflecting his wealthy experience as a producer of various different forms of house and techno. However, in his next outing the Alola founder goes even further, assembling four genre-spanning tracks pre-empting the broad aesthetic of his forthcoming album. Written at the time of his daughter’s birth, ‘Love’ is a tantalising beatless piece that’s charged with emotion and marks a pivotal moment in Nourizadeh’s life. ‘Remember 89’ then moves into club territories, with an array of organic percussion and crystalline melodies, it’s a record made for dancing that draws on the nostalgia of the early days of raving. Moody from the off, ‘Fight’ is a high-tempo electro roller with aggressive drums and fuzzy synths, making way for ‘I See You’ an otherworldly ambient production which Omid recorded live in one take whilst playing with modular set ups during a recent stay in Tokyo. 16B ‘B4LP EP (Part 3)’ drops on Alola Records on 28th May 2018.   ‘LOVE’ Video  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHAD3Et4cw4 Spotifyhttps://open.spotify.com/album/54gLhv6GTzuHzTdfBAm1D3… Traxsourcehttps://www.traxsource.com/title/974744/b4lp-ep-part-3 Apple Musichttps://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/b4lp-ep-part-3/1391237135...
