Bristol’s Nomad lays down his distinct foreboding sound on debut album Found Tapes.
There’s something in the water in Bristol. Whatever it is, it produces the darkest emotive music I’ve ever heard: Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Kosheen, Roni Size to name a few. As a founding member of Bristol’s Bad Places indie label, Marco Stellardi (better known as Nomad) has been sipping from the same chalice as the above-mentioned and created Found Tapes, his debut album. The worlds of US east coast hip hop and UK breakbeat collide in Nomad’s music, especially on tracks like Real Leather and Cabaret, featuring UK emcee Eskimoe.
