‘The neon nightlife specialists’
Who ‘Danny, El-mar and Sasha. We don’t use DJ names; we keep it real. Some of us did in the past, but they are too embarrassing to mention. That’s our secret and we will never tell! Actually, if you plaster us with alcohol, we will probably spill the beans.’
The name ‘NB Noise has two meanings. One is what we tell our parents: “Neon Brand Noise”. The other meaning relies on you knowing a little bit of Chinese slang. There’s a good reason why we have the back end of a cow in our logo.’
The parties Neon Zoo, Neon Rainbow.
The venues We mainly stick to venues such as Lantern, Funky and Ink. We are in talks with other clubs such as Dada, Migas, Coco and 5F, so watch out for events at these venues soon.’
When ‘We throw parties every month. We like to keep ourselves busy .’
How much ‘From nothing to 100RMB, sometimes more for our bigger events. But you’re always guaranteed free gifts to wear.’
Past bookings Cazzette (with Budweiser Storm).
Genres ‘We play a wide variety of house, electro and techno. It all depends on the party, really. Whatever gets the party rocking! No point being stuck up your own DJ butt.’
Tracklist ‘Three songs? Are you serious? We could tell you 30, but three wouldn’t do it justice.’
Dance moves ‘Dance moves vary, but one thing always remains constant: bold, bright and neon-clad party monsters populate our dancefloors.’
The vibe ‘The vibe is always colourful and fun, just like our deco.’
The crowd We get all sorts of NB Noisers: techno heads, drag queens, muscle men, kandi kids, disco bitches, party monsters. A very diverse set of followers whom we love equally .’
Craziest moment ‘A good friend of ours who won’t be named cough Stella cough was dancing on a speaker at Lantern. She was wearing a colourful set of LED finger lights and waving her hands around like the mad party monster that she is. She ended up putting herself in some sort of neon-induced trance and promptly fell off the speaker, breaking the guard rail to the VIP area and, I assume, severely bruising her arse. Luckily for us, she got up a bit dazed and confused, but continued to party on like a true NB Noiser!’
What sets them apart ‘We like to think our original concepts and fun atmosphere set us apart. But don’t take our word for it – get yourselves down to an NB Noise event and see for yourselves.'
