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, and his mother 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 electronice sounds, his creations take on a life of their own with each song being a unique and carefully put together masterpiece.
'Elevated' (his recent release with label Soulection), marks IAMNOBODI's first official release which showcases a compilation of sounds that inspire. The single "Maputo Dance" (one of our personal favorites) pays homage to the slum in Mozambique which it was named after with the intention to shed light on inspiration to create, no matter what sort of living environment you're immersed in. 'Elevated' takes you on a wavy journey through funky bass grooves and bouncy percussion whilst maintaining a melodic yet consistent ride.
'Elevated' showcases IAMNOBODI's dedication to creating the next level of hip hop inspired-tunes whilst very much keeping the memory and sound of Dilla alive and weaving in funky bass lines, soulful vocals and inspiring energy at the same time.
