Melodic Techno and Tech House producer NHOAH has released his new single, ‘BRISTOL Said: In The Name’ on 17 April via R.O.T respectortolerate Records. The single was premiered via Mixmag Brasil. The musician has made his name as a producer, composer, DJ, mixing engineer, record label owner and artist. To his core, NHOAH is devoted to creative culture and its inhabitants, drawing recognition from leading music publications such as Resident Advisor, Quietus, TRAX Mag, Clash Magazine, PopMatters, Magnetic Magazine, Data Transmission, The Arts Desk, MTV London and Electronic Groove as well as airplay on BBC 6 Nemone’s Electric Ladyland. He performed a live video on a suspended glass stairway on the Dachstein Glacier called ‘Stairway To Nothingness – Glacier Concert’ as well as a ‘Live Set In A Storm In A Wall-less Skyscraper’, both of which premiered via BE-AT TV and has racked up over 450k views across streaming platforms to date.
NHOAH has worked alongside the producers of The Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, and Bronski Beat’s Larry Steinbachek, and his album Tangowerk was nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. The producer’s latest single, ‘Paris La Goutte D’or’ has been supported by renowned DJ’s such as Digitalism, The Black Madonna, Wankelmut and WhoMadeWho.
Berlin-born NHOAH’s sound pays homage to early German synth-music like Klaus Schulze and D.A.F, while at the same time drawing parallels to artists such as Stephan Bodzin, me or Jamie Jones. He is inspired by spaces, places and people, and his inherent ability to code emotional experience into sound is matchless. Though NHOAH’s label is based in Berlin, he has two studios in Vienna.
‘BRISTOL said: In The Name’ is a track whose acid sound screws itself through the whole song, and then into your mind. The flaming lead vocal, which lyrically processes the experience of a very special wedding NHOAH was invited to, fires up the rhythm and celebrates somewhere between space and time. The track can appeal to techno and tech house fans alike, and is a declaration of the inspiring power of the city Bristol; another track from NHOAH’s city cycle. This time surely a massive one.
Sharing the events that lead to the creation of the track NHOAH tells us, “Last year I was at a memorable wedding in Bristol. For the first time I understood why so much impressive music comes from this city. The vibe grabbed me immediately even though it was raining cats and dogs. I would have loved to stay longer but there was no time for that. But the impressions resonated and the track “BRISTOL Said: In The Name…” was born. It took me months to find the perfect sound. Then all of a sudden I found the musical force to express how the city caught me.”
