Johnny Hostile

Johnny Hostile is a French com­poser, pro­ducer, musi­cian and founder of Pop Noire. After grad­u­at­ing from the con­ser­va­toire in elec­troa­coustic and musique con­crète fields, he moved to London in 2005 with his part­ner Jehnny Beth where they started the band John & Jehn. Together, they com­posed a series of sound­tracks for Chanel and they founded Pop Noire in 2011 with art direc­tor Antoine Carlier.

Two years later, J. Hostile unveiled his work as a sup­port on Savages’ world tour. In 2015, he invited Julian Casablancas and Jehnny Beth to sing on his cover of Boy/​Girl’, pro­duced sev­eral French artists such as Izia Higelin, Etienne Daho, and also remixed the Quebeckers Essaie Pas (DFA). Since 2016, he has been pro­duc­ing the radio show Start Making Sense’ on Beats 1 hosted by Jehnny Beth, which invites every week an artist from the inde­pen­dent musi­cal sphere.

With his debut album ‘(dys)function’ in 2018, he eman­ci­pated him­self from any genres of music that he had been pro­duc­ing for over a decade. He decided to com­pose the music that had been the center of his life for years: ambi­ent and exper­i­men­tal elec­tronic music. He now lives and works in Paris where Pop Noire stu­dios are based.

Pop Noire is an inde­pen­dent record label based in Paris, founded in 2011 by artists duo Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, and artis­tic direc­tor Antoine Carlier with the desire to develop bespoke projects.
It all started in London with a punk and DIY phi­los­o­phy as the duo John & Jehn was com­pos­ing and record­ing in the base­ment of their home, while the back room was trans­formed into a makeshift office, stocked to the brim with records.

Pop Noire quickly got noticed and estab­lished its uncom­pro­mis­ing rep­u­ta­tion on an inter­na­tional scale with Lescop’s lunar and cap­ti­vat­ing La Forêt’ or Savages’ burn­ing Shut up’.
The projects mainly build around Johnny Hostile and Jehnny Beth, but the house also opens to other artists as the New-Zealand duo A Dead Forest Index.
In 2017, Pop Noire joined forces with pro­duc­tion com­pany Walter Films founder, Xavier Arias. The label explores new aes­thet­ics such as elec­tronic and exper­i­men­tal music, with the sig­na­ture of French young com­poser Cirrial and the release of Johnny Hostile’s ambi­ent debut album.

Pop Noire is an artists’ house which pro­duces and devel­ops projects in line with its iden­tity: inde­pen­dent, rad­i­cal and exploratory.
