Berlin’s beloved techno-wizard NHOAH shares latest single ‘Der Goldene Ball / The Golden Glow’ scheduled for release on 23rd March via R.O.T Respectortolerate Records, and will be available in both English and German versions. After recent EP victories, Abstellgleis zu Remixen and 120 Red Skies zu Remixen, both featuring outstanding remixes from the likes of 808 State, µ-Ziq, Pixelord, Peter Zirbs and Mieko Suzuki, skilled electronic producer NHOAH has delivered an already stable flow of singles and remixes capturing the hearts of many. Reputable publications such as Resident Advisor, PopMatters, Clash Mag, Data Transmission, Electronic Groove and Radio 6 Music’s Nemone have also taken note, earning NHOAH the impressive reputation he has today. Acid-house pioneers 808 State also gained NHOAH’s previous remix EP a spot on The Quietus’ Albums Of The Month column.
NHOAH’s initial project Tangowerk released two albums throughout it’s cycle, and was nominated for the German Record Critics’ Award (Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik). With a majestic back catalogue behind him, NHOAH holds credit next to some of the planet’s most legendary and respectable artists such as Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Bronski Beat, Jayne County and Romy Haag, to name just a few.
A skilled producer, engineer and drummer, NHOAH has been an essential to Germany’s underground electronic scene for the past four decades. Utilizing an array of analogue and modular synthesizers, as well as various components of software, NHOAH has recently furthered his unique approach to production by taking his studio to the road, producing wherever he may feel, exploring new paths with limited resources. This evolution has now bloomed into a mindful catalyst for NHOAH’s highly anticipated debut album, West-Berlin, a measure for which he has “started from scratch”, by reanimating spirit into his creative outlet.
Influenced by an array of talented and prolific producers such as Conny Plank (Krafwerk, NEU!, Ultravox) Hans-Joachim Roedelius and Dieter Moebius, NHOAH manifests these into a modern, albeit familiar style, shaping brooding techno sections into explorative journeys; rich synthesizers, cascading arpeggios, pulsating oscillations and complex patterns all complete NHOAH’s recipe for enchantment. Comparable to similarly like-minded artists such as Dominik Eulberg, Rone or Stephan Bodzin, NHOAH’s signature style exceeds any expectation beyond belief.
NHOAH’s latest offering ‘Der Goldene Ball / The Golden Glow’ is a lively shimmering expedition through astral planes; fluttering arpeggio synthesizers, pounding bass, lustrous vocal work and radiantly potent percussive beats, keeping the atmosphere celestial yet elegant. It’s plain to see how this lively dance trip can simultaneously provoke deep thought, and demonstrate NHOAH’s remarkable ability to impress, time and time again.
“…We played with the most blessed bliss, with the fruits of a heavenly May, and in the wild gold of your tangled hair my deep desire sang out, a cry, like the cry of a black jungle bird. And young skies came tumbling down, unhoped-for, wild-sweet scents; we tore our covers off and screamed!.. And our love exulted in song, two wild symphonies!” – Excerpts lifted from “Orgy”, a poem by expressionist Else Lasker-Schüler.
