Nølah: From Rock Beginnings to Techno and Beyond

Nølah’s beginnings in music started at age of 7, studying classical music then moving in to the rock idiom as a guitarist and composer. These experiences have served her well as core learning lessons in the development of the music she produces today, albiet in an entirely different genre. Originally from Lleida in the northern region of Catalonia, Nølah now calls Barcelona home and is ground  zero where she conceives and composes her electronic musical gems. Hypnotic and warm melodies, booming bass lines and kick ass beats are the core ingredients that you’ll find on her recordings and are a reflection of her newly found love for uplifting techno. Year 2017 marked a “breaking out” of sorts for Nølah with upwards of a dozen releases across multiple genres including Techno, Progressive House, Deep House, Tech House, Electronica and Downtempo. This demonstrates her remarkable ability to create songs that are designed to reach a wide range of electronic music enthusiasts.  Remarkably, her very first track “Fedra” on Parquet Recordings peaked at #30 on Beatport’s Top 100 Progressive Chart, which one can easily assume opened the doors to releases and projects for Click Records, Tulipa Recordings, Hopeless/Submarine Vibes, Ante Records and Wasabi Recordings. Not limiting herself to simply composing original songs, she has also reworked tracks with her stellar remixes with and for Shosho, Peppou, Mark Brainford, Apollo’s Messengers and EKDK. A key moment in her budding career came byway a live performance, seen by 500,000 viewers, for Pont Du Gard broadcast through the French TV Channel Cercle. With bookings at some of Europe’s best known clubs and venues such as Wanderlust (Paris), Ritter Butzke (Berlin), Hypnos Hall (Istanbul), Kite (Ankara), Ibiza Beach Festival (Belgium), La Terrrazza (Barcelona), and City Hall (Barcelona) to mention a few, coupled with her short list of releases, Nølah has attracted the attention of electronic dance music fans as well as industry insiders and power players. As 2017 proved to be a fruitful year, will 2018 be a continuation of more great musical productions and a busier performance schedule? One can hope so.
