What a freakin' year this has been! This sentence might be more true than at any moment in the past years. The Corona pandemic had a massive impact on pretty much all of our lives, the music industry and quite possibly also the rest of society. In the absence of live music events the songs and records that were released remained an anchor and provided much needed comfort in a difficult time. These are our fifty favourite tracks from this rollercoaster ride called 2020.
How do you keep an overview about the countless new releases in the world of music? Well, easier said than done but thank god the staff of NBHAP keeps an overview. In this column one from the team personnally reflects on the past four weeks and the music that matters during this time. Now it's the turn of our author Andreas Peters to ramble on about our favourite passion in the world.
One stage, one keyboard and countless opportunities to do with that. Our beloved improvised show returned to the stages of the beloved Reeperbahn Festival for the second time in a row and here's how the entire thing went down.
The dynamic sports and synths duo just released one of 2020's most charming debut albums, and now they move over to the dancefloor and take us on a trip through the depths of their musical knowledge and taste. Yes, Farao and Special-K have put together a smooth yet grooving lush disco mix for us, featuring some of the tracks that inspired Ultraflex. They explore some highlights from their selection right here.
In a world of apparent chaos and uncertainty it's not the worst attitude to remain a bit optimistic. Canadian dream electronica duo Southern Shores has been a reliable source of positive energy over the past ten years so we are more than happy that their joyful NBHAP guestmix arrived just at the right time.
British synthpop veterans Depeche Mode have been shaping the world of pop and especially the electronic music scene continuously ever since they first plugged in their synthesizers back in late 1980. They inspired multiple generations of musicians and invited many of them to rework their songs over the past four decades. NBHAP head and lifelong Depeche Mode fan Norman dove deep into the remixes of the band and created not one but four tribute mixtapes dedicated to this special art form.
