Following on from the success of his latest album, Eien's Fable, Nogymx is set to release his highly anticipated upcoming album, Pahdo, marking a monumental milestone in his music career and his journey in South Korea. As a celebration of 10 years since his first release and 10 years of life in his adopted home, Pahdo is a captivating collection of tracks that beautifully encapsulates Nogymx's growth as an artist and his deep connection to the cultures of both homes that have helped shape who he is today.
Pahdo, (파도) meaning "wave" in Korean, symbolizes the ebb and flow of Nogymx's artistic evolution and the profound influence of his surroundings. Each track on the album represents a unique wave, carrying listeners on a mesmerizing journey through intricate beats, lush textures, and a fusion of cultural influences. From the nostalgic undertones to the forward-thinking arrangements, Nogymx and his many talented collaborators masterfully craft undulations of sound that wash over the senses, leaving a lasting impact on each listener.
Known at home as Jimmy Dunne, Nogymx is an Irish-born, South Korea-based English professor moonlighting as a producer with a love for the non-traditional style of instrumental hip hop.
Formerly known as "No Gimmicks," Nogymx has rebranded himself with a name that is often mispronounced yet memorable. His music fuses the atmospheric elegance of Bonobo, the jazz-inflected beats of Freddie Joachim, and the cultural influences of his adopted home in South Korea, resulting in a signature sound that is both nostalgic and forward-thinking. Drawing inspiration from other artists such as Nujabes, Uyama Hiroto, Apollo Brown, Shlohmo, Emancipator, and more, Nogymx has found his own corner in the ever-evolving landscape of the instrumental music scene.
With an ability to weave intricate beats, lush electronic textures, and a touch of nostalgia, the 30-something’s unique blend of sounds has earned him collaborations with some of the biggest labels and fellow artists in the genre. Supported by many of the giants in the genre such as Lofi Girl, Chill Beats, Stereofox, Hip Dozer, The Jazz Hop Cafe, and more, as well as finding success with his independent releases, the Irishman has racked up over 80 million streams across all platforms and has been featured in over 200k user playlists on Spotify alone.
