Nookie aka Cloud 9:
To his credit is “Give a little love”, one of the first underground rave anthems, which came out on absolute 2 records then re-released on Reinforced Records in 1993. “The sound of music”, another early rave anthem from “The return of Nookie EP”, also issued by Reinforced records was to catapult him into the limelight, “Snow”/”Jazzmin” on Moving Shadow, one of the first tunes to use a real jazz double bass. He was also running his own label in the early nineties (Daddy Armshouse Records) with his long-time friend Pedro, and had a number of releases to his credit.
In 1995 Nookie released his debut LP on Reinforced Records entitled ‘The Sound of Music’. This proved to be a huge success and gave Nookie a more worldwide status. He has been lucky enough through his work to travel all around the world experiencing different cultures and seeing how others perceive the sound of his music. Countries that he has visited include Germany, Italy, Japan, America, Poland, Yugoslavia, Estonia, and Spain amongst others.
He has worked with many great artists and in 1998 he got to work on his second album with one of his all time heroes Larry Heard aka Mr Fingers. This was released through Sony Records in Japan and helped him reach a wider audience within the dance music scene. Included on this album is the Ibiza/Café Del Mar classic “Paradise”.
A year on and he released his third album also through Sony Records (Japan) under his other artist name ‘Cloud Nine’. During this time he got to tour Japan to promote this album alongside MC Five Alive, Ray Keith and singer Beverley who featured on this album project with the two main tracks “Distant Affair” and “Living in a Ghetto” which was later remixed by Peshay.
