Nomadic Massive

Nomadic Massive


Montreal’s own Nomadic Massive has firmly established itself as a group of premier performers and skilled musicians in a genre that has evolved from its early days of two turntables and a microphone. These musical nomads represent an open-minded Hip-Hop which finds its inspiration in the traditions of the past; combining live instrumentation, samples, and a wide array of vocal styles. This multilingual, multicultural, super-group has become synonymous with energetic and crowd-moving live shows. Read more on Last.fm
Montreal’s own Nomadic Massive has firmly established itself as a group of premier performers and skilled musicians in a genre that has evolved from its early days of two turntables and a microphone. These musical nomads represent an open-minded Hip-Hop which finds its inspiration in the traditions of the past; combining live instrumentation, samples, and a wide array of vocal styles. This multilingual, multicultural, super-group has become synonymous with energetic and crowd-moving live shows. Sharing the stage with such notable acts as Wyclef Jean (2008), K’naan (2005), and Guru’s Jazzmatazz (2008); Nomadic has also performed at world class festivals including the Montreal International Jazz Festival (2007-2009), and in Toronto at Yonge-Dundas Square's Global Rhythms Festival (2008), and the Harbourfront Global Hip-Hop Festival (2006, 2007).

After being voted best Hip Hop local act in the MIRROR for 2 years in a row, Nomadic Massive was nominated for best Hip Hop album of the year (2009) at La GAMIQ. The group has also left its mark internationally; initiating socio-cultural exchanges with like-minded artists from Sao Paolo, Brazil (2008) and in Havana, Cuba (2004, 2006). In both countries, these initiatives involved educational and musical workshops, concerts and studio collaborations. From these enriching exchanges, the grassroots “Get Down” mix-tape series came to life; showcasing the collaborations as well as solo contributions from Brazilian and Cuban artists.

Functioning somewhat as ambassadors, Nomadic continues to redefine what Hip-Hop can achieve on a global level. With the first critically acclaimed EP, Nomads Land (2004), more than 3000 copies were sold independently on the strength of the group's performances before inking a distribution deal with Montreal-Toronto based Public Transit Recordings. As the group's ongoing explorations open up new ways to interpret a musical style that has traditionally been marginalized, the “more” that has always existed in the Hip-Hop movement is revealed in everything that is Nomadic Massive. This is new full-length self-titled opus, recorded between Havana and Montreal; featuring the full Massive and showcasing musicians from all over the world.

It perfectly represents the spirit of the group's live performance. Positively Hip Hop, the record seamlessly swings between Soul, Reggae, Jazz, Blues, Afro-Caribbean, Latin-American and North-African influences on which percussive and reflected lyrics are intelligently delivered in five languages.
