We caught up with Noah Ayrton to learn more about how he got into dance music, some of his favourite labels, plans for 2021 and more.
T.H.E – Hey Noah! Welcome to T.H.E – Music Essentials. How has 2021 kicked off for you?
Noah Ayrton – Hey! Thanks for having me. 2021 started off well. So far, I released a track on Laidback Luke’s imprint Mixmash Records and got a few more coming up.
T.H.E – How did you get into dance music and which artists inspired you at that time?
Noah Ayrton – I got into dance music back in 2013 when I first got introduced to the genres of trance and big room. Artists like deadmau5 and Hardwell have been huge influences to me when first getting into the production world. I soon attempted producing at the age of fourteen, and have been consistent with my craft ever since.
T.H.E – We went through some of your releases, and it seems like electro and melodic future house, seem to be your favourite genres to dabble with. What is it about these genres that appeal to you?
Noah Ayrton – I enjoy creating electro house because I came from and was inspired by an aggressive genre like big room. Future house has always held a special place in my heart when composing. I’m now trying to bring some sort of balance between both genres. A blend between future house, electro house, and tech house seems to be what I’m focusing on at the moment.
T.H.E – There are a lot of artists that produce songs within these genres. What do you actively do, in your production process that sets you apart, and helps you bring an innovative sound to the table?
Noah Ayrton – Over the years I’ve developed my “wobble lead” which people consider my signature sound. My aggressive bass lines, wobble lead and dreamy vocals make for a solid track, ready to play out anywhere from clubs to festivals.
T.H.E – Which part of the song do you prefer working on first, and how do you go about creating it?
Noah Ayrton – I usually start out with finding an original or unique sounding vocal. I then write chords and a bass line around it beginning with the drop. Finally adding my wobble lead over the top and working on the break later on by adding atmospheric elements and FX to build tension, completing the overall dynamic of the track.
T.H.E – You have a signature “wobble lead” and “aggressive bass” sound that have been synonymous in your productions. Could you tell us a bit about how you ended up creating them?
Noah Ayrton – Through trial and error during the sound design or sound selection phase of my production process, I actually created this “wobble lead” sound by mistake, but found it to be something unique and fresh while maintaining that gritty electro house vibe with the “aggressive bass”.
T.H.E – They seem to be quite popular too, with labels like Revealed and HEXAGON. Apart from these two, which other labels would you really like to work with?
Noah Ayrton – I’m grateful to have worked with such labels so soon in my career. Next up would have to be Spinnin’ Records, Musical Freedom, and STMPD RCRDS.
T.H.E – We hear that you have a collaboration with Going Deeper coming out on Future House Music, what can you tell us about that, and what can fans expect from it?
Noah Ayrton – This record’s a special one for me. Working with such great artists had me expand my creativity and opened me up to producing something I wouldn’t usually lean towards. The fans can expect a deeper track compared to my usual club stuff, something more uplifting and melodic. Overall, it turned out fantastic and we can’t wait to share it with you all!
T.H.E – Lastly, anything we should keep an eye out for, in 2021?
Noah Ayrton – You can definitely expect a lot of new projects from me this year. From music to live sets, as well as my very own radio show!
