Noga Erez is an electronic musician from Tel Aviv, Israel who performs her danceable hits live with a three-piece band.
In June she released her debut album ‘Off The Radar’ via City Slang to high critical acclaim, placing herself firmly on the map as one of the year’s most exciting new artists. Live, she has already played standout sets at SXSW, The Great Escape, Convergence, Primavera, Roskilde, Siren, on tour with Sylvan Esso, plus her own album release shows.
“Soundtoys 5 for me is the answer to everything 🙂 It has amazing tools for creation and playing, but also for mixing and making your sound bigger.”
While the music she makes in collaboration with her partner and co-writer, composer and producer Ori Rousso, exploits many of the more physical, dynamic elements of electronic music, it also embraces a cerebral sensitivity that’s made her one of Tel Aviv’s most exciting, idiosyncratic artists. The grainy textures and potent atmospheres forged with her synths and ingenious beats bravely straddle genres, energized further by the environment in which she’s grown up.
“I used Soundtoys in almost every song on Off The Radar. In my song “Dance While You Shoot” I used a lot of Little AlterBoy on the vocals, Decapitator on the bass, and EchoBoy as an effect on a loooot of channels.”
"Crystallizer is my favorite and at this point an essential element of my sound. When it’s applied to my voice, I can create intimate, dreamy textures. The way it interacts with Korean words when delayed and reverse recycled is unlike anything else."

"Plug-ins like Decapitator, Devil-Loc, EchoBoy, Little AlterBoy, FilterFreak… to me these aren’t just for post-production and mixing - they can also serve as sources of inspiration during tracking and writing."
“Soundtoys is 100% my favourite audio tools for production. Every single project I work on has at least one of the Soundtoys plugins being used, worth every single penny and I would advise anyone that wants to get creative in production to buy them.”
