DJ Noize started scratching in his local youth club at the age of 13 getting his own pair of Technics 1210 turntables at the age of 15.[1] DJ Noize won Danish master titles in 1993, 1994, 1995, 1996 and 2000[2] and the New Music Seminar DJ Battle (then called "Clark Kent's Superman Battle for World Supremacy" and MC'd by DJ Clark Kent) in New York city against DJ 8-Ball in the summer of 1994 – the first white non-American to ever win. He won second place at the prestigious DMC World DJ Championships in 1994 and 1995.[3] He became World Champion at the DMC World DJ Championships in 1996. He is famous for his battle performances and wordplay – dicing words from vinyls to produce cheeky disses of his opponents.

He tours the world judging DJ battles and competitions. He has performed with the Freestyle MC Supernatural, and has opened sets for prominent names such as Erykah Badu, GangStarr and Grandmaster Flash among others.

He hosted his own radio programme showcasing hip-hop on Denmark's Radio for nine years,[4] starting in 1997.
