Between the mechanical throb of the nightclub and the laconic wooze of the bar exists a strange, smokefilledspace where you will find Nico and Ezechiel, better known as Nôze. From their distinct backgrounds in DJing and classical training respectively, their meeting led them to fuse the rough physicality of the dancefloor with the accomplished musicality of jazz, and somehow they came out smelling of rotten roses.
From their first appearances on Karat and Trapez, Nôze went on to become one of the key acts on Nico’sCircus Company label, before progressing to the German powerhouse Get Physical. From this prominent platform, the Nôze of today surge ever outwards, feeding the wild accomplishments of their past into a staggering tapestry of sound that manages to diverge into reggae, soul and pop as much as their original influences.
The brothers in charms and their tales of love and absurdity will just as likely confound you as give you what you want, but then that’s always the attraction.
