Global Noize – A Prayer for the Planet

Musical genius Jason Miles is always on the quest to new soundshores. He met DJ Logic at the Moogfest in October 2006. Miles remembers: “I was having a bad week and then he called me and said ‘do you want to play a show at the Blue Note together?’ I said ‘sure, when?’ He said ‘tonight’ – so we did a show starting at 1 AM, which was great.” Next in row was a concert of both in Marrakech, where they developed the idea of their debut album Global Noize (2008).

Miles shares, “We went through life-altering experiences. It was so new to us – mysterious, crazy and another view of the world. We both knew we had to make this project happen. The picture on the CD cover of the both of us with the camel in the desert says it all!”

The duo is joined by female singer Falu. Hailing from Bombay she is known by her genre-defining hybrid “Indie Hindi” musical style. Since 2008 they are touring together and Falu also contributed three standout tracks to their self-titled album released in Spring 2008.

Their sophomore album, A Prayer for the Planet is scheduled for release on August 23, 2011 via Lightyear/EMI. The album will be released June 11, 2011 in Europe on Art of Groove Records/MIG.
