NULU “Nothing Ultimate Leaves Us” celebrates 10 Years and prepares to deliver a series of compilations “Past, Present, Future” to commemorate this milestone. The compilations set to be released from March through October in digital format, including a continuous DJ mix from Anané, and a very special vinyl sampler just in time for WMC.
New York City 1997 - A young girl with a one way bus ticket, a bag ﬁlled witH clothes, $100 and a pocket full of dreams arrived to NYC with a vision to fulﬁll something special…a dream. Flash forward over twenty years, with the same belief and courage, Nulu celebrates 10 Years. What many dare to dream became a reality for Anane and today for the artists she signs. From Cabo Verde to New York City, a model, dancer, theatre actress, philanthropist, yogi & former Miss Cape Verde she began writing music, producing, singing and traveling the world as lead singer for Grammy winner Louie Vega’s Elements Of Life Band representing women and being the voice of strength to be an achiever of your dreams. Her birth name is Ana but to the world she is Anané.
With her story Nulu Music was born, a revolutionary independent record label based in NYC, launched in 2009 by Anane; the musical visionary, founder, owner and creative chief at the helm responsible for pioneering the Afro House sound. Anané’s Afro roots and artistic vision was one of the ﬁrst to introduce this sound to the dance market of Europe and USA, a unique musical genre coming from the African continent bringing to light the heart and the potential of a spiritual style which is now main stream in the music business 8 years later.
While breaking artistic boundaries with the international releases of trailblazing interpretations and melding musical genres while fusing together the indigenous African tribal traditions and rituals, rhythms and melodies, dance and drumming, dialects and chanting with the ﬂair and ﬁnesse of New York underground Deep House & Techno elements; creatively pioneering the future of Afro House and Afro Tech.
Nulu is responsible for helping to launch artists’ Black Motion, Djeff, and giving an early spotlight to others such as Manoo, Pablo Fierro, DaCapo and many more by having some of their early works showcased in the genre with tracks like “Ubatuba” “Old Times At Barracuda” “Mumi Wango” “Tambuleno” “Barobosi Chant” “Nulu Dance” “Nocawe EP” to name a few that contributed to characterizing the label and giving direction to many unknown artists. It doesn’t stop there as Nulu Music continues to have a huge contribution with productions and remixes by legendary artists as Louie Vega, Terry Hunter, Jose Mangual Jr., arriving to its contemporary talents as Dj Angelo, Caiiro, Diephuis, Cristian Vinci, and many more artists you will ﬁnd when exploring the 10 Years of Nulu compilations and conﬁrming Nulu Music will continue to deliver quality music.
2012 Nulu Electronic was launched, opening its doors to the Electronic world that Anané considers not just as a genre but a container of various musical inﬂuences between Afro Tech, House, Deep House, Tech House and Techno.
In 2014 Christian Mantini came on board as Label Manger, with a vast twenty year history and experience in dance music, he helped to refresh an already established and groundbreaking label with new business projections and help further shape Anane’s creative concepts, ideas and together develop new projects. With two labels Nulu Movement was introduced as a party created to feature music and artists from both labels Nulu & Nulu Electronic, a night where artists can freely express themselves musically.
There is also Nulu Movement Radio, a weekly show airing on House Fm (UK), Kaya Fm (South Africa) and soon on Yammat Fm (Croatia).
