After many years as a producer, working with different artists, NHOAH comes up with his debut album this year on april the 13th.
First I met NHOAH in Vienna at the “Waves Vienna Festival” in october 2017. We had a chat and he told me, that he’s not sure, if he will stay in Berlin or not. He was upset and he told me this just in the first minutes we met.
Coming back to Berlin I stayed in touch with his manager and buddy Staab. I knew, that they got a lot to tell. They have always been a part of he creative and music scene in Berlin even before the Wall felt down. Staab told me that the name of the album NHOAH was working on is “West Berlin”. I knew, that this is something I would like to talk about in an interview. A personal story about Berlin in the early days and now.
