Noizdisco were born from London-based SWK Productions, run by Dale Hanson and Mike Harris, writers of hard-hitting white label dance tracks who then later manifested themselves as All Night Parties. In this guise they re-mixed tracks for many artists in their own unique ‘Radio Dance’ style, including Top 40 hit re-mixes of ‘Numb’ and ‘Choices’ for Honey Rider. They also produced two albums for world music act Modeste and re-mixed tracks for Caspar Pound, Cranium HF, The Storys, Paul Van Dyk and DJ Sammy.
They’ve been joined recently by New Yorker, Phil Pagano – a veteran sound engineer of the prestigious Bass Hits Studios in NYC and Masters at Work (MAW) team. Phil has mixed and re-mixed tracks for Janet Jackson, Fat Joe, Bjork, Madonna, Whitney Houston, Toni Braxton, Pet Shop Boys and Louis Vega. As well as MAW, he has worked with various re-mixers and production teams, including Basement Boys, Deep Dish, Junior Vasquez, Danny Teniglia, and Mood to Swing, and his sought-after live sound skills have contributed to international tours spanning a wide range of artists: from The Bucketheads and Rob Halford of Judas Priest, to Nuyorican Soul, Tower of Power, Elements of Life, Allan Toussaint and Average White Band (to name but a few). Phil has worked on many Grammy-award winning albums and hit singles; including Ultra-Naté’s ‘Free’ and The Bucketheads’ ‘The Bomb’.
The final member of the group is Jo Griggs, a London-born singer. Jo has toured the States extensively, singing with pop/rock group Et Tu Brucé in support of legendary band The Zombies in 2013, where she first caught the attention of Dale and Phil who asked her to join Noizdisco as the featured singer. Jo’s contributions to the tracks are more than just powerful vocals and melodic harmonies, as she has also proven herself to be a talented vocal/musical arranger and lyricist, contributing greatly to the growth and development of Noizdisco, and an accomplished live performer with Dale Hanson at top London clubs including Fire, Freedom and Thirst.
