shhh… Don’t make noise; see NOISE – Review by Immaculate Mentality

Yo fellow heads!

I’m hoping everyone has had a dope week and going to have an even doper weekend.

Let me be the first to kick it off for you by bringing something special. this week I have decided to do a review on a graffiti artist who goes by the alias of NOISE.

Noise is a South African born graffiti writer who started out at the age of 15 And has had other aliases aswel such as Detz and Auth, he first started out with a crew called P.A ( personal assassins) which was comprised by artists such as Tombz, Pres and Trips, a crew which later became MHC the “Most Hated Cartel” as they expanded their horizons and which he now feels is his real crew.

yet prior to that he considered himself a solo vandal.
he is now going the international route and has already formed a few good bonds with crews from abroad.

In the beginning writers such as Mac1, Falco and Gogga played a big role in his development as he originates from Cape Town in South Africa.
After moving to the city of Johannesburg, South African crews like YMB and White Trash played a part in being influential to him. then later on PCP was also very influential.

Noise has had the opportunity of painting with many writers in South Africa and abroad, trust when I tell you that the list is endless, He is not the type to drop names, so we’ll just leave it at that. ;-)

Not having much internet access growing up, foreign influences only came much later in his career and the few copies of Graphotism that were passed around really shaped the way he then thought painting should be done.

As all writers he began with a basic tag and went on from there…

Enjoying those Fat dripping markers that a lot of us still love to this day, not to mention putting stickers up and going as big as he could with the PVA (primer)
leaving us behind with some big ass block busters.from there he then took it to the good old black and chrome missions late at night, or during broad daylight…whatever’s clever right?
as he kept progressing he later went to full colour pieces where that was just another one of the many ways he could experience as many different styles as possible to mould him into the very versatile writer he is today.

Travelling has become a must in his world so he can now collect as many pictures of his pieces in as many countries around the globe as possible. as well as being able to paint with the writers from around the world and learn new styles, tricks and ways of perfecting his own style.
Noise quotes:

“I will always make it known I am from South Africa and feel the culture is very strong at home as well as our writers”

Noise quotes again:

He has always had a passion not only for graffiti but hip hop as a whole, although graffiti is his forte

so without anything further to say but plenty to look at please take some time to appreciate one of S.A’s very talented artists.

The Indie Hip-hop Expo 2014 – NYE @ Club Zen!


On New Years Eve we went to go check out the first annual Indie Hip-hop Expo at Club Zen in Maboneng Precinct, Johannesburg. We must say that there is so much right with this show giving artist the opportunity to showcase their talents as well as do some vital networking within the culture we hold so dear. We did take a few pic’s to show you but just note that these were mostly taken at the wrong time and don’t really do the attendance much justice… Check them out here:

Luckily we were able to get some merch manufactured in time for the event and had quite a few items on sale… It was a lot of fun to be at, and this one and really look forward to the next. Big up’s to the organizers, the artists, merchants and most importantly those who attended the show. Without all of you, there wouldn’t be one.

Be sure to follow the IHHE2014 on Facebook for further pictures, update and events:

Enjoy! ~dhh
