The best kept secret in music

Press



Known for ruggedly marrying elements from diverse musical and ethnic cultures, lively local performances by NM have seen MCs and vocalists alongside live musicians and DJs performing a hybrid fusion of funk, hip-hop and world music, all with a laudable Robin-Hood-on-some-DIY-type -shit attitude. Thinking of them primarily as a performing outfit, it was hard for me to believe that the same band created Nomad's Land, a beautifully packaged nine-track LP, superbly polished, kickin' outta my speakers all crisp like it was made in a million-dollar L.A. studio. Whether on organic tribal jams Neg Chante or Sad but True, grimy dancehall-flavoured cut Nomad's Land or the distinctly Montrealaise Nofy's Peace, producers (Lou Piensa, Sandhill, Scott C and Ali Sepu), musicians, vocalists and MCs all excel throughout.

Bio

Nomadic Massive is a Montreal-based collective of independent Hip-Hop artists who combined their energies to spread their music across borders. A similar vision of music and life as well as a desire to travel and experience the cultures of the world through our art is what binds us.

We are well aware of the contradictions of Hip-Hop’s globalization process, and feel it is vital to be in touch with other scenes across the world, especially those in less developed economies, to share, learn, be inspired and spread knowledge.

The band actually concretised in Cuba, when we went for the 10th Annual Rap Festival in Havana. We recently returned to record our 2nd effort.

Although this collective is new (since 2004), all members have been working in the music community for many years as artists but also as radio show hosts, organizers, educators, street-workers, producers and other community-oriented roles.

Nomadic Massive is old school like that. Our traditions are our influences and those will never die.
