Noel G.

 

Noel G.’s childhood included a passion for many genres of music from the 70’s and 80’s.  He was especially drawn to and inspired by the early electronic sound that was emerging during this period.  Growing up in the New York City area Noel G. was fortunate to witness and embrace the rise of the electronic sound in Hip Hop, House, Techno, Trance, Drum & Bass, Jungle, Synthpop, High Energy, etc.

 

Noel G.’s early influences in electronic music include Kraftwerk, Authur Baker, Giorgio Moroder, David Bowie, Gary Numan, Afrika Bambaataa, Marly Marl, Depeche Mode, New Order, Todd Terry and Mantronix to name a few.  By age 13 Noel G. was behind turntables seamlessly mixing all types of electronic music and eventually mastering the art of cutting & scratching, as his passion for early Hip Hop music and culture transformed his life.

 

By age 16 Noel G. began to focus on producing Hip Hop music.  His first makeshift studio consisted of 2 turntables, a DJ mixer, a Tascam 4-track recorder and a Digitech 4 second digital delay, which allowed him to create one-bar loops from his extensive collection of jazz & soul records.  Fast-forward 3 years to significant technological advances in drum machines and samplers, at which point Noel G. reignited his childhood passion for dance music and began to produce the Club and House music sound of the late 80’s.

 

Noel G., fulfilling his musical destiny, was introduced to John Kano (a.k.a Havana Funk) through a mutual friend in 1989 and they quickly became great friends. Working to create his style it wasn't long before he reached the pinnacle of his music career when releasing his first record, a retro house remix of John Kano’s “Together” on Robbins Entertainment in 2002.

 

Aside from his important and influential collaborations with John Kano, Noel G. was introduced to another well-known NJ based producer, Giuseppe D.  Together they founded the Trance group ”Entity” and in 2005 they released “Everybody Knows” on Water Music, an original Trance anthem that featured Gallia on vocals.  Another Giuseppe D. collaboration was Noel G.’s Trance remix of Lady Life’s cover of Bonnie Tyler's smash hit “Holding Out For a Hero” released in 2007 on Hothead Recordings.

 

Noel G. also collaborated with global DJ/Producer, Chris Moody to release Gallia’s 2nd record, this time as the group "Porcha", a Trance cover of Richard Marx’s classic hit “Right Here Waiting”, which was released on Dee Vee Records in 2006.  This remix proved to be a pivotal turning point in Noel G.’s career, as the record received mass notoriety and very positive reviews from many key industry people.  Noel G.’s much anticipated remix of Andrea Tafuri’s “You Won’t Ever Leave” (originally produced by Eddie Baez) was released on New York City's Imminent Dance Label "Swirl Records Inc" in early 2008. 

 

Noel G. was invited by Da Groove Doctors (members Moises Modesto, Duane Harden & Jay Dabhi) to remix Sarah Mattea’s “Heart On Fire” released on Soltrenz/Strictly Records in 2009.  In 2010 Noel G. topped radio charts with his debut single "Can't Stop" feat Adam Joseph.  Noel's back in 2011 with “Season” feat vocalist Darren Stakey on this ode to the four seasons.

 

Currently Noel G. continues to collaborate with Da Groove Doctors and Soltrenz Records as they work on exciting new original songs for Noel G. first EP which will include artists Darren Stakey, Moises Modesto and many others.
