Black Noise has vowed to occupy a prominent space in the forever-growing hip-hop scene. Recently signed to Native Rhythms Records (a label that has become synonymous with breaking acts), the group is preparing to release what could be a seminal EP in 2015.

This week, Black Noise releases Heartbeat, aka “Clap” with Emile YX singing in Khoekhoegowab (Nama) and is one of the songs that will see the group mixing hip-hop with local sounds such as Klopse or Goema, Khoi and San indigenous sounds and chants, as well gumboot and dance rhythms.

Explaining the future direction and sound of Black Noise, Emile Lester Jansen, aka Emile YX says: “with this single,   Heartbeat, we want to mess with peoples perception of race, tribalism and mix things up in our music. Last year the group had a successful tour of United States of America and performed at The Kennedy Centre in Washington DC and at Trinity, University in Connecticut and the response to our sound and performance was tremendous.

Written by Emile Jansen & Jean-Pierre Frolick and a beat by Ebrahim Mallum, and sung by Nicky Samuels,  the single is a true reflection of the character of South Africa diverse native sounds.

Black Noise is a hip-hop crew hailing from the Cape Flats in Cape Town, and one of oldest active hip-hop crew along with Prophets of da City (POC).  Black Noise is credited with being the pioneer of Cape Town’s ‘conscious’ hip-hop scene in the late 80s and early 90s.

Through Native Rhythms Records, Black Noise will also release an EP of five (5) tracks in the first quarter of 2015 and will be available on iTunes and other digital platforms.
