Artists, Deep House, Exclusive, Home, Interviews | INTERVIEW // Nora En Pure is poetry in motion & in music
Posted by mimada on November 23, 2016
Close your eyes and imagine… Warm air on your skin, soft sand between your toes, the sound of waves gently lapping up on the shore, and the most spectacular assortment of red, pink, orange and violet melting together in a firey, captivating sunset in front of you, framed by the silhouettes of swaying palm trees and hibiscus flowers. This is feeling that South African producer Nora En Pure invokes in her listeners with her melodic, serendipitous and yet surprisingly deep house tracks. A part of the Enormous Tunes and Helvetic Nerds labels alongside artists like EDX, Sons of Maria and Croatia Squad, you’d most likely recognize Nora En Pure for her hits such as “Come With Me,” “Saltwater,” and her most recent release,“Tell My Heart” featuring Dani Senior.
What captivates me about Nora’s music, however, is that from an immediate listen, you get a sense that her music truly goes much deeper than a solid beat and an uplifting melody; not something you find often in the popular music scene. Even more so, her aura is effortlessly cool and her success is unwavering regardless of the “female disadvantage” some attribute to the electronic industry. For these reasons, in addition to a sheer admiration for her jams, I was absolutely thrilled to have the opportunity to pick Nora’s brain about her and her music in advance of her show at Effex in Albuquerque, New Mexico. For those seeking a getaway ~ be it on the dancefloor, a beach, or even lost in your headphones ~ I recommend purifying your life with Nora En Pure’s beats.

Leah Haxhi is a singer songwriter currently working on her upcoming album in NYC. She paired with Bangladeshi producer IAmRizwan to create this atmospheric track that makes us feel like everything will be “Okay”. She free-styled the song in one take and then added harmonies to build out the song and create the organic feeling of the single. Leah is working with various producers and labels such as Afrojack, Armada Music, and MixMash Deep. We last gave you a taste of her EDM style with Armada’s record “When We Were Young” by Jaylex ft. Leah Haxhi, but here she shows us once again that her style cannot be put into any box.

Wow it’s probably not going to get any better then this today. Rusty Hook and Katuchat team up on a remix of Yuna’s “Someone Out Of Town”. With underlying bass that captivates your attention and fun playful snare noises at the drop, this track has to be my favorite by either of them. Stream and grab yourself a free download here.
