Danish artist Lydmor is an unstoppable force of nature, one that is destined to push her own artistic and personal boundaries with every new release. Her pop is adventurous, relentless and forward-thinking and in a time that’s dominated by a lot of question marks it’s not the worst thing to imagine a better future. Together with her music we might be ready to shape it and this exchange will hopefully ignite it. And of course, she also picked tunes for our beloved playlist.
The ongoing climate crisis can leave you numb and disillusioned from time to time. Instead of waiting for a miracle to happen or getting way too cynical it might be best to simply start doing little changes in your everyday life. Taking action is one aspect, redefining our relationship with nature in general is a whole different one. Acclaimed musician Martin Kohlstedt is fighting for exactly that and NBHAP head Norman spoke with him about his ambitious yet very pragmatic plan and how we all can learn something from it.
At the beginning of the Covid-pandemic NBHAP head Norman created a tribute to dance and rave culture which quickly got life of its own. Now, with ten mixtapes out he reflects upon the origins of this personal little project and would like to share it with you as well.
Two decades after its initial release the underrated debut album by the British three-piece returns to the spotlight with a new reissue and a compilation of previously hard to get bonus tracks. NBHAP head Norman always had a strong connection to the music of South and managed to exchange a few thoughts on the group and their album with band member Jamie McDonald.
This February iconic French music robots Daft Punk surprisingly announced their break-up with a silent farewell video and like many other electronic music lovers NBHAP head Norman is quite sad to see the duo vanish and decided to pay them tribute with a personal set featuring the brightest tunes of over two decades of groundbreaking sounds along with personal reflections on their impact on him.
How to remain sane in a stressful time like the one we're facing right now? Music is always a good answer and when it comes to relaxing meditation vibes the music of Teen Daze is a really helpful ally. So, obviously we needed to ask him for a bit guidance for the latest update of our daydreaming playlist and he surely delivered!
Less parties, more disco? Maybe the world needs exactly that in a time of crisis and this man is about to deliver it in style. German pop wunderkind Roosevelt is returning with his third album "Polydans" these days and NBHAP head Norman called him up to talk about it and also reflect on the music that influenced him. As always the artist was also down to compile music for our playlist.
In the wake of the current club closings a little throwback into the glory days of dancefloor euphoria feels like a fitting thing to do. For NBHAP head Norman the era of late 80s and early 90s acid house and dance music is a period of time he loves to revisit from time to time. Two mixtapes celebrate the legendary vibe of the era and take the sound into the here and now.
Almost ten years after their first joint album, the two songwriters return with a follow-up that is once again fuelled by the joyful energy of their companionship. NBHAP head Norman phoned up the two buddies in the middle of the harsh lockdown reality to get a better understanding of their musical union and kind friendship.
