Cosime | Mattheis | Oberman | Oceanic | Paul Twin | Based in Rotterdam, Holland
Nous’klaer Audio hails from Rotterdam, The Netherlands, headed up by Oberman the labels core goal is to provide a home for the many musical endeavors of a close bunch of friends. It started when Oberman and Mattheis met in their early 20’s, both coming from the islands of south Holland, the duo grew up in a self-made culture of music making and summer raving. It was during this time they tested their music and it soon became clear they were onto something special.
In early 2012 Oberman set the wheels in motion for the labels debut release from Mattheis entitled “Isms EP”, which was soon followed by an EP from his brother Oceanic. The current catalogue exists of releases from Mattheis, Oceanic, Benedikt Frey, Paul Twin and Cosime. From the outset the label had a clear musical idea which they have held firm to, releasing melody-drenched dance floor orientated records. This ethos has garnered them strong support both domestically and internationally since.
The name Nous’klaer is Dutch dialect for ‘now it’s ready,’ which was often used after prepping one of their parties and it aptly embodies the self-made spirit of the label. 2016 will be the busiest year for the label yet with the introduction of more names from the Nous’klaer family

In April, Nous’klaer will present another new name: Cosime. NOUS006 is a collaboration between De School residents Arif Malawi and Job Oberman (aka Oceanic), and it shows the more stripped housey side of Nous’klaer.
In the summer of 2014 Arif and Job spent some time on the Dutch islands tanning while making field recordings. Hilary and Fyr are two powerful clubtracks that evolved from this process. To complete the record a dub version is included of the A1 track Fyr. The record will be out April 4th 2016.
