New York electronic live trio N/UM present their fifth release and second full-length studio album ‘Levers of History‘, out now on Ninetofire.

After being unable to play as a group due to quarantine for many months, the trio finally got back together to record a series of spontaneous, thematic, and captivating tracks across their latest body of work.

The trio strike a tighter chord than ever across this six-track LP, defying norms and predictability, which has seen the New York trio rapidly growing in demand in recent years. Their ever-increasing appeal has been bolstered by fearless all-improvised live shows often performed in the midst of raving crowds without barriers – both physical and musical.

N/UM also integrate an audio-visual aspect to this standout release, inviting Canadian visual art collective Isotone as collaborators, augmenting the album with a visual interpretation and expanding the work into the multi-media artistic territory.

The two groups have collaborated recently for a mind-altering 360 A/V live performance at the 2022 edition of MUTEK Montréal, lighting up the Satosphére Dome at Société des Arts Technologiques for the closing show of last year’s highly-anticipated return of the seminal festival.

Acclaimed Perlon artist, DJ and performer extraordinaire Dr. San Proper also features on the album with a reinterpretation of the title track ‘Levers of History’ with signature infectious breakbeats and kaleidoscope sonic visions, manoeuvring the material in masterful fashion, like an acid boat ride through the canals of Amsterdam.

The trio’s latest LP also marks the relaunch and return of the group’s in-house label Ninetofire. The imprint already has a number of releases lined up for 2023, starting with a Various Artists Compilation and several EP releases from their growing circle of outstanding talent.

The audio-visual version of the LP is an masterful mix derived from the album tracks set alongside visuals by Isotone. It is available to stream on several major video platforms and select media outlets.

For those wanting to experience the LP in person, N/UM feature across festival circuit and in major European cities in the Spring and Summer of 2023.
