Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Rotterdam has long been home to one of the world’s most vibrant and unique underground electronic music scenes. It’s here, amongst clubs, bars and record shops that have nurtured the talents of a myriad of lauded DJs, producers and record labels, that Sjoerd Oberman’s Nous’klaer Audio cut its teeth.
After starting working at one of Rotterdam’s best known electronic music organizations, Clone, in 2011 Oberman began dreaming of setting up a label to nurture, develop and showcase the talents of friends from the local scene. Nous’klaer Audio debuted in 2013 via a fine 12” single from Mattheis, the producer whose live show had done much to persuade Oberman that founding the label was a necessity.
In the years after, Nous’klaer Audio released many debuts from now established producers. From the percussion-rich lusciousness of Oceanic, to the sci-fi world of bleeps from upsammy. From Konduku’s deep and exotic blends of hazy hypnotism to Mary Lake’s driving techno trips.
In recent times Nous’klaer Audio remains a breeding ground for some of the most diverse and talented producers, expanding it’s horizon beyond electronic music with cutting edge pop, indie and experimental genres.
