As the music of the dance clubs leaps over to the jazz clubs and vice versa, Nimo features a rare chemistry between two master jammers: jazz saxophonist and composer Nic Gotham and DJ Monsta. Nic’s melodies hook you instantly, combined with Monsta’s compelling grooves, and the scratch- sax duels must be heard to be believed!
Nic Gotham and DJ Monsta teamed up to make NiMo in 2008. Their concerts and club appearances have gained steadily in popularity. The Latvian National Symphony Orchestra were so excited by Nimo that they commissioned a collaborative saxophone-DJ-symphony orchestra concert called „SimfoNiMo” for October, 2009.
Joining NiMo on the debut album are good friends Madars Kalnins and Rudolfs Macats (both piano/keyboards) and Toms Poiss (bass). The vivid, warm recording was made using a unique combination of vintage and cutting-edge equipment at Riga’s Wolk Recording Studio.
