N is a name of at least five acts: 1) A abstract hip-hop / instrumental hip-hop pseudonym of Ivan Gladkov, from Moscow, Russia. Releases include the album "Left" (Apr 2010, Liminal Recs). Sites: Discogs and MySpace 2) A mis-tagging of N-Dubz (aka N Dubz). 3) A Helsinki, Finland rock band with members: Samppa Fjäder (bass - since 1997), Kassu Lindgren (drums - since 1994), Pekka Loponen (guitars, vocals - since 1998) and Jussi Saarelma (vocals, keyboards - since 1994).
Their influences are from pop to chaos metal. Sites: MySpace and Mikseri.net/artists/?id=15950 (official) 4) An ambient pseudonym of Hellmut Neidhardt, which débuted with "Bergen" (2003, Genesungswerk) and, excluding collaborations, has the latest album "Gager" (Oct 2010, Denovali Records). Other releases include a collaboration with Mal Hoeschen, N & Segment, for the singe "Karnap" (Jul 2001, Genesungswerk). The music of N is like a mirror of the moment.
Regardless how much thinking and planning went before, the sound captured by a "live"-recording setting comes directly from the inside. Amps + guitar are the instruments used, there is no cut and paste afterwards nor any overdub... All N-work is counted by numbers that reflect the timeline of recording and / or the moment of the conclusion to go for the certain concept. All N-recordings (with the possible exception of single-tracks) deal with a real place and so the title of any album does.Make N Playlist
