When it comes to performance, N.O.H.A. stands out as a band that really knows how to bring their complex sound on the stage, shifting and reshaping the border of club-scene and live performance. N.O.H.A. have already proven in various gigs with the likes of, Armand van Helden, Goldie, J. Majik, Malachi/Herbalizer or Andy Smith/Portishead that they can match the dynamics of any DJ set with their live show… beat for beat.
N.O.H.A. remain cosmopolitans. Minerva Diaz Perez – the new singer is from Gijon, Spain. Her expressive vocals with a erotic undercurrent, create incomparable depth and atmosphere on the live performance. Minerva’s voice is the perfect contrast and complement for New York rapper Chevy’s energetic, charismatic MC performance.
Prague born sax-player Philip Noha and native German Jochen Eickenberg on keys, are the producers of the international collective and create the creative pool of this band. For their live shows Tim Rashid (bass) and Tobias Belker (drums) join the line-up for a powerful live-band-experience.
After ‘Noise Of Human Art’ (1997), ‘No Slack’ (2001) and ‘Next Plateau’ (2003), Comes “BASE FROM ABOVE” N.O.H.A.’s 4th album – and culmination of 10 years of experience.
With their debut album N.O.H.A. already established themselves as pop-avantgarde of the European music scene, especially in fusing classic songwriting and club sound. Previous sold records have reached ( 1#, 4#, 10#, 19#) in the german club charts, including
countless club and festival gigs that show, how successful and flexible N.O.H.A. are at working live and in the studio.
Freed from former obligations, these highly motivated musicians have created an album full of club compatible, atmospheric songs. No doubt about it, N.O.H.A. are setting course for the next level.
On BASE FROM ABOVE, the band is developing its own vision: The noise of human art, a living breathing mixture of breakbeats, drum & bass, electric jazz, pop and 100% club grooves. The conglomerate sounds in 2006 are even racier, more experimental and more
on the pulse of the times than ever before.
