Biography

Love for the beat thrives in Denmark. The critics helped prove this fact with their praise for 2002’s eponymous debut by Nobody Beats The Beats, where a bunch of the country’s best, weirdest, grooviest producers and DJs delivered a record demonstrating the art of the beat. Influenced by soul, jazz, electronica and hip-hop, the groove, the sound, the beat ruled. On this debut album the only track with vocals was The Beat Diggin’ Song and with Madlib, Oh-No, Context and Tue Track on the microphone responsibilities it went on to become a sleeper hit on the Danish national broadcaster DR’s video-show Boogie.

A year later, the Nobody Beats The Beats project was back in the groove with their sophomore album The Second Coming. This time a set with a broader range and greater ambitions. The central theme remained the same; to present the work of beat-loving Danish producers, some experienced, some famous, some unknown. But each living up to a standard that earns respect. For The Second Coming a number of carefully selected guests were selected to contribute to the record with fruitful results, setting in motion the idea of collaborations with international stars that was to develop in a big way.

So 2004 saw the release of the eagerly anticipated third album Drops From Above. The core elements and trademarks of the Nobody Beats The Beas philosophy are thoughout the record with a host of international hip-hop’s most famous names and pioneers. Erick Sermon, Guru, Black Thought, Grand Puba, Grand Puba, Brand Nubian as well as the cream of contemporary talent; Jahi, Little Brother, Supernatural, ADL, Ty, Desiz La Peste.
