Born in New York City in 1986, Noogstar was exposed to music from a very early age thanks in part to his father's love of music. He grew up listening to Pink Floyd, Genesis, Bob Marley and Kraftwerk, bands which still influence his productions to this very day. As childhood rolled into adolescence, Noogstar started to broaden his musical horizon. This was the time when he discovered the likes of Slipknot and Pantera and it was also during this period in his life that his love for electronic music sprouted. Inspired by artists such as Fairmont, Jeff Mills, Nathan Fake, James Holden, Gary Beck, James Ruskin, Jay Lumen, Oxia, Slam and Anton PIeete, Noogstar started DJing, quickly establishing himself thanks to his electrifying live sets and on stage persona.
