Just like the world of Rock ‘n Roll in the mid to late 60s, the world of House music has recently discovered the distortion pedal. And they like it! As house music has grown more aggressive, distorted, and down-right tough… DJ and Producer Jake Stanczak, AKA “Kill the Noise,” has taken the opportunity to drop some beats designed to knock you over on the dance-floor and make you want to get up for more.

We caught up with Kill the Noise in his Los Angeles studio where he showed us a track on his new EP titled Roots on Slow Roast Records. Roots was produced primarily in Reason. We learn how Jake got into Reason, how obsessed he is with the Malstrom, and we get a some wise advice for aspiring producers and DJs out there.
