After exchanging thoughts with various players of the electronic music scene throughout the past year, NBHAP head Norman is stepping into the limelight and actually talks about his own influences, love for electronic music and his freshly released original material under his Burnout Sumner moniker. So yeah, consider this to be a more personal edition than usual.
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.
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.
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.
