Nisse

(DE)

NISSE grew up in South Hamburg, in between the industry of the Phoenix-Viertel and the countryside. He spent the 80s and 90s listening to the sound of “Neue Deutsche Welle”, the first steps of Hip Hop, Electro and Pop: Michael Jackson, Prince, Depeche Mode, Queen and other German artists like Reiser, Grönemeyer and Falco.

All those influences and the urge to work in his idols business, led him to start on working and producing NISSEs first album “August”. During the production he got some help from Steddy (Casper), Philipp Schwär (Cäthe) and Nicolas Rebscher (Balbina).

The lyrics describe small stories in big pictures and big stories in timeless, beautiful words. This own way of working reveals that NISSE has already found his own way.

The music mixes epic strings and detailed drums at the same time, goes on with catchy synthie-tunes, including extraordinary samples, and connects with a voice that already sounds like a big star in German language. Every song becomes a journey: Pop that can do more than it seemed to for a long time.

Most of the album was recorded and produced in the historical Berlin Funkhaus Studio. NISSE and his team wanted it to sound as free as possible, despite its electronic and modern moments. The Drum-Computer Sounds were recorded from originals, inter alia the TR-808, Vintage-synthesizers from NISSEs youth were integrated and strings and horns were arranged and recorded in the legendary staircase of the former Planet-Rock-Studios.
