The New York electronic live trio N/um (pronounced Noom) have come to be regarded as modern pioneers of electronic live music with their fully improvised live sets, featuring the most classic of analog electronic instruments available, mixed with vocals and guitar for a truly genre-bending experience.
Each performance or recording by N/UM is unique and improvised, with no pre-composed songs, no plan or structure agreed upon. The group unites three longtime friends who have always shared a deep passion for electronic music. They are five-time Grammy Award winning audio engineer and producer Jeremy Loucas, guitarist Elias Meister of world-renowned rap group Residente (Calle 13) and Danish multi instrumentalist and producer Emil Bovbjerg.
The three, having recorded and performed together in different formations over the past decade, have emerged as a solid musical unit as N/UM, capable of capturing major dance floors around the world while bringing the unique immediacy and spontaneity of improvisation to places where it is rarely heard: festivals, nightclubs and underground warehouse-parties.
Notable performances include Output (Brooklyn, NY), Flash (Washington DC), Mono (Mexico City), Fusion Festival (Laerz, Germany), Kater Blau (Berlin), Nowhere Is Here Festival (Shillong, India), Robot Heart Bus at the Free Burn 2021 (Black Rock City, NV), Art With Me Festival (Miami, FL) and Cityfox Live (Brooklyn, NY)
“This group is made up of straight-up killers of the dancefloor, firing ammo on all levels
with endless energy, and they are without doubt, the last ones standing come the morning.
Where many have tried and failed, make some room for N/UM!”
– DJ MAG
“… a unique improvisational essence. They fuse textures from classic instruments
like the 808, 909, SH-101 and Mono/Poly as well as their voices and guitar to deliver
masterful ballads with strong dancefloor appeal.”
“Recorded in one take during a single session back in November of last year, the seven-tracker
was improvised entirely, recorded as one lengthy live set with each track flowing into the next…
with an end product that is totally dancefloor ready.”
