»Nearly half of the total years he’s been on this earth, IAMNOBODI has been making music. Starting at age 13 as an emcee, he was well on the path to becoming a musician. IAMNOBODI comes from a musically passionate family – his Nigerian-born father is a blues and jazz singer mom, always a music connoisseur and supporter.
Based in Dusseldorf, Germany, IAMNOBODI has made a name for himself through his productions and remixes. With inspirations ranging from jazz to house to traditional hip hop and diverse electronic sounds, his creations take on a life of their own with each song a unique and carefully put together masterpiece.
Elevated, marks IAMNOBODI’s first official release which showcases a compilation of sounds that inspire. The single, « Maputo Dance », pays homage to the slum in Mozambique which it was named after with the intension to shed light on inspiration to create no matter what sort of living environment you’re immersed in. « Elevated » the title and second track lifted from the Elevated takes you on a wavy journey through funky bass grooves and bouncy percussion whilst maintaining a melodic yet consistent ride.
Elevated as a whole, showcases IAMNOBODI’s dedication to creating next level hip hop inspired-tunes very much keeping the memory and sound of Dilla alive while weaving in funky bass lines, soulful vocals and inspiring energy. »
