Nôze are voted as the third hottest live act ever seen in 2006 by the readers of Germany´s greatest magazine for electronic aspects: De-Bug.
FREAK, starting as Hip Hop artist, also produces and co-produces music for other highly regarded artists like ARK or JAMIE LIDELL. Nicolas Sfintescu is Mr 100.000 Volt who’s bulb has no expire date.
Nôze are two comrades, two troublemakers, full of life, joy and happiness, often wearing their straw hats and stripping of their clothes at the end of their show after musically anything has been touched. A touch of Summer even in the deepest Winter.
They are coming with a lot of gear, playing real instruments like the Korg MS20 and the digital legend Korg M1. Supported by their music computers, the big mixing desk as the core and their own voices, they create a unique show on any stage, taking the vibes of the club up to the max!
The friends of Nôze excited of their music are: Luciano, Akufen, Ricardo Villalobos, Thomas Brinkmann, Ark, Krikor, Cosmo Vitelli, John Tejada, Hot Chip, abd, Herbert… to name a few.
