Son, Curoc, Mada, Renegade
Biography (taken from Wikipedia)
Following the breakup of Hardnoise, Son and Mada continued the Hardnoise sound with a new band, Son of Noise. They were joined by Curoc (Q-Roc, recently departed from Gunshot) and released the single “Son of Noise/Ill Justice”. The single was well received, but following disagreements with the record company over the use of the acapellas of their songs, the group parted company with Music of Life.
Son of Noise were quickly snapped up by Kold Sweat Records, and released more singles and their debut album ‘The Mighty Son of Noise’. Whilst recording this album, they were joined by a fourth member, DJ Renegade, who previously DJed with UK legend ‘Blade’ and ‘Most Dominant’.
Following the release of the album, the group were still not completely satisfied with the attitude of their record company, and instead decided to leave. This time, they decided to finance their own recordings, as they had with the original Hardnoise “Untitled” single. This led to the “Crazy Mad Flow/Retrocide” single and the album Access Denied: Bullshit and Politics Pt 1 on Little Rascool. These releases, however, weren’t as well received, or indeed as well distributed, as their previous releases, and proved to be the group’s last recordings.
However, the group are still together and working on joint projects. Individually, the group continue to pursue solo projects, and DJ Son, Renegade and Mada are still DJing in the scene in London, Renegade achieving success as one of the Scratch Perverts. Mada also maintains a British hip hop website.
