Producing dance music and performing live for over eight years, Noah Pred emerged from Vancouver's underground as a sought-after techno DJ with a sophisticated sound and unique style. Devoted to authentic and soulful strains of techno in all its permutations, Noah's sound continues to evolve while remaining firmly driven by the dance floor.
Since his first records came out in the late nineties, his productions have received international support, appearing on charts from renowned talent such as Carl Cox, Cari Lekebusch, and Laurent Garnier. His subsequent 12-inch EPs and remixes have continued to garner critical acclaim while moving dance floors across the globe, appearing on playlists from Tokyo to Glasgow.
As a DJ and live act, Noah has travelled throughout Europe and North America, performing alongside such diverse artists as Funk D'Void, James Holden and Mathew Jonson. After working as assistant A&R for Consigned Recordings in Montreal, Noah applied his label skills by spearheading te Pacific Technics project, a triple-vinyl compilation benefiting Amnesty International. The Pacific Technics CD, selected and mixed by Noah Pred, was released in June 2004.
Exploring his compositional versatility, Pred launched the Shen project later that year. Geared towards digital downtempo, electronic dub and emotive IDM, Sen has provided Noah with a creative outlet for productions that roam beyond the borders of clubland. His debut Shen full-length, 'Outlines', was released on Native State Records in December 2006.
Recently relocated to Toronto where he's accepted a DJ residency with the Fukhouse crew, he runs two record labels from his studio headquarters - Thoughtless Music and Sentient Sound. Delving into the potentials of field recording and integrated sound design, Noah's latest techno full-length on New Kanada, 'Ecocosm', was released in August 2007.
