Berlin based DJ and producer, NHOAH releases ‘Radio Waves’ on R.O.T. Records.
For the past two years, NHOAH has mostly been releasing long mixes which resemble intense inner journeys. Therefore, the need for shorter forms and interpretations of these experiences was inevitable. The idea behind this concept was to rework 8 tracks that could be played on the radio. That’s how ‘Radio Waves’ emerged from his studio.
In order to keep the essence of the original mixes, NHOAH revised the tracks in a way that they evoke much greater emotions in their brevity. Accompanied by soulful vocals and powerful words by Ina Viola, every track represents his intimate experience and emphasizes the nostalgic feelings isolation has brought to us during the past year.
The warmth of sharing the dancefloor with other people, the thrill of exploring a new city and all of its undiscovered corners, and immersion into the liberating fun of the music itself are ever-present emotions throughout the whole album. Encompassing elements of tech house and melodic techno, the album is an audio diary expressing feelings connected to each place he visited while on tour. Berlin, Bristol, Paris, Amsterdam and Vienna are among the locations to which he dedicates his compositions.
Intense beat and acid sound on ‘AmsterDankE (Radio Waves Edit)’ and the constant repetition of fierce patterns that cast a spell over the listener on ‘I Can’t Satisfy You (Radio Waves Edit)’ create an addictive vibe you cannot resist. ‘Our House (Radio Waves Edit)’ puts into spotlight the ruined cultural landscape of 2020, racial discrimination and the repression minorities are exposed to over and over again. ‘I Know What Happened In Berlin (Radio Waves Edit)’ represents a deep and profound connection NHOAH has with this city.
