A multi-faceted artist with a great story to tell, NU is Cafe De Anatolia’s latest signing, with undoubtedly a more than impressive career ahead of him. NU is a nomad of modern times, having traveled across the world with his music, searching for inspiration while having found his true calling: instrumentals amalgamated with his electronic production, all held together through solid rhythms.
NU’s extensive travels have defined him as an artist and allowed him to take inspiration from his many homes to craft his multi-layered music, which masterfully combines electronica, downtempo and ethnic sounds. His unmatched talent has resulted in massive cultural hits, such as his re-interpretation of the famous Armenian song “Man O To,” and his original “Who Loves The Sun” alongside Jo.Ke, which have both went on to amass over 60 million combined streams on Spotify alone, as well as become massive cultural moments in electronic music.
Now, following his impressive single “SAGA” alongside Yi Yi Thant, NU has returned with yet another gem, debuting on Cafe De Anatolia with “Farsi.” Spanning almost 9 minutes in length, “Farsi” masterfully showcases NU’s unmatched knack for crafting intricate and immersive downtempo anthems, while infusing his production with various organic elements that make his feel like it’s actually alive. “Farsi” starts off with smooth kicks, catchy claps and playful melodies, while the arrangement slowly progresses with the help of more and more elements that are being added and contribute to this incredible vibe.
NU marks just the first of many artists Cafe De Anatolia has on its radar and is gearing up to release music with. Fans of the acclaimed label can expect to hear new music from the likes of Just Emma, Savage & SHē, Urmet K, Tavi Castro, Timboletti, Rialians On Earth, Adam Husa, Billy Esteban, Ghenwa Nemnom, Boudi Hamad, Jad Halal, Mass Digital, Jose Solano, Jerry Spoon, IV-IN, Ravestronauts, Zuma Dionys, Tuba Twooz, Stone Submarines, Ivailo Blagoev, HVMZA, Gaz Mawete, Beije and many more in the next three months.
