Static, stagnant and suffocatingly repetitive is the breeze that flows throughout the music world. Here to free us from that commercialized smog is Nemo Achida, a Lexington, Kentucky based, 24 year old, MC and Producer. In the last four years, Nemo has released 12 stellar projects (Elevator Music, Vibrations, North Star, Climax Shxt, Digital Dan, Goodbye Brooklyn EP, Goodbye Brooklyn Extended LP, Nemotional, Conversations with Myself, Climax Shxt II, Midnight Magic and most recently Midnight Magic Extended), had his song 'Memories' selected by Talib Kweli for his ‘BlackSmith Community Mixtape’ hosted by Mick Boogie and toured cross country alongside independent stalwart Blu where they performed for sold out crowds in Brooklyn, Atlanta, Seattle, Fresno and Los Angeles.
Nemo Achida's work ethic and progressive sound landed him on Grammy Award winning producer 88-Keys' (Jay-Z, Kanye West, Talib Kweli, Mos Def, Bilal) Locksmith Music imprint and with manager Mic Sean. It was following his signing that Nemo Achida released his critically acclaimed ‘Goodbye Brooklyn EP’ and was then name checked by celebrated author Jack McCallum in his New York Times bestseller ‘Dream Team’ as an example of the 1992 Dream Team’s continued relevancy in the 21st century. McCallum wrote, "Consider this: The name of (John) Stockton, a buttoned-down point guard, is on a track by rapper Nemo Achida." An excerpt of ‘Dream Team’, including the portion mentioning Nemo was featured in the July 2012 issue of Sports Illustrated.
With each new release, Nemo Achida continues to increase his online footprint with a constant presence on high traffic sites like Complex.com, 2DopeBoyz.com, OnSmash.com, KevinNottingham.com, RubyHornet.com, XXLMag.com, TheSource.com, MassAppeal.com and more. 88-Keys and Nemo Achida are now set to debut their collaborative Ep 'Conversation with 88', featuring the recently released, BJ The Chicago Kid assisted single ‘Hands On’ alongside other originals and remixes all produced by 88-Keys himself.
