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.
