Ottawa Singer/rapper/producer NDMA releases his first EP on June 17, 2014, titled “Panache” via L.A.’s Give N Go Sounds. The 5 track EP was Written and Produced by NDMA and Mastered by Phil Shaw Bova, who has worked with the likes of Feist, Bahamas, and So-called. The EP blends hip-hop and electronic music, as NDMA reveals a story about opportunity and freedom, and dwells on his cultural roots from where he sprouts. NDMA (a.k.a. Nilton De Menezes) was born in Angola and raised in Brazil and has grown to realize that it is important to keep a relationship between music and the community at an early age.
“Friends started calling me Panache because of my style and how I carry myself, which is influenced by my Angolan culture and felt in my music,” Menezes explains of the inspiration behind Panache. “Having lived through civil war and poverty, music was my only escape; so it comes from the heart. I wanted this EP to make you happy, dance, and feel inspired.”
Following the Noisey video premiere of Yours for One Night earlier this year (featuring Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group signee Rockie Fresh), NDMA is eager to share Panache’s second release, Burn Slow, available below to stream. Capturing that feeling of wanting something to last forever, Burn Slow draws inspiration from fond memories of family, friends, and falling head over heels in love-universal experiences that Menezes believes everyone can relate to.
