What’s more fitting for a gorgeous summer than a golden Nora En Pure jam like On The Beach? The esteemed Zurich producer takes us to paradise with her deep summery, chill house re-imagination of the balmy classic, which carries just the right amount of friskiness for soundtracking your laid back island adventures. A refreshing breeze glides past us as we dance till sunrise on the lush beaches of Ibiza with Nora En Pure. Wait, I’m at home and it’s foggy in San Francisco? Well, I’ll just lose myself in the dreamy reverie of On The Beach agaon. All is well. Snag this heavenly track from Beatport.

*interviewed by Nick 

Last month, I Heart Moosiq and Nora En Pure had an in depth conversation right before the Zurich based producer crushed it with a spectacular set at Ruby Skye in San Francisco. Read on to see what we talked about!


IHM: We’re glad to see you going back on the road as that hopefully means personal matters were resolved at home. As someone who doesn’t tour I’ve always wondered what artists do to keep from being home sick. What remedies do you have for yourself?

Nora En Pure:

I’ve always traveled a lot and had to fly to places on my own in a young age, so I guess I got used to it already before touring. Now to keep in touch Facetime, Skype and all those things help a lot! Being always on the go means it also keeps life interesting. There’s almost never a dull moment and you appreciate home much more. I guess it’s about how you deal with situations and try to get most out of it always.

IHM: Nora En Pure to me is a global artist with roots in South Africa and a home in Switzerland. You’ve also been to Australia, South America, the States. Is there any part of the world you haven’t touched?

Nora En Pure:

So far I’ve been missing out on Asia. I have been in India a couple of times which I enjoyed very much! Also in South America I’d love to go play in more countries. I have only been in Brazil and Uruguay until now.

IHM:

How do you balance your wanderlust and enjoyment for nature with your persona as an artist? 

Nora En Pure:

Being a DJ brings you mostly into big cities but sometimes also to remote areas which you’d never see if it wasn’t for the music. So I love the constant change of scenery. At home I go on long walks with my dog. After all a lot of time is spent in hotels, clubs, airplanes so at home I like to stay away from noise and the hassle and enjoy being outdoors.

IHM:

What exposed you as a child to Opera, Metal, and Rock and who were your favorite artists?

Nora En Pure:

As kids we used to be in those skater circles. So punk, rock & ska was the cool music. I loved Linkin Park and Offspring but also more Indie or as you said Metal Opera like Avantasia 😉 It’s definitely not everyone’s music but I was very captivated by it. I would still now absolutely go to their concerts.

IHM:

Could you ever see yourself performing as anything other than Nora En Pure? For example as an actress in an opera.

Nora En Pure:

Not really, I am actually a rather shy person and don’t like exposure too much. Music and playing live I love that’s why I feel always comfortable with it. But I think for acting and singing I’d be far too nervous to enjoy it. Plus I’m really bad at acting..

IHM:

When you released your first Purified mix did you imagine you’d release as many as you have now?

Nora En Pure:

Of course the purified mixes were planned to become a regular podcast. In fact I should be further already than I am now. But sometimes there were too many things going on and I couldn’t manage everything in time. Now it’s a radio show on a 2-week basis and that’s good!

IHM:

In an interview I saw before you stated that you listen to Classical music in your down time. Is there any genre that doesn’t appeal to you?

Nora En Pure:

Classical music helps me to relax. But also there are pieces which are very heavy. I prefer the relaxing soft classical pieces. In general I don’t like really noisy music like the EDM from the past few years. I’m not a fan of German vocal music, also folk music is definitely not my favourite…

IHM:

When you’re out touring what takes up most of your time while traveling?  

Nora En Pure:

I guess time in the airplane. I fly every weekend somewhere. Mostly different countries on one weekend. But the whole process to get to the airplane bugs me more. I just came back from our North American bus tour and that was amazing. No airports, no planes, no checks. Having a bed and being able to walk around and being flexible while driving was amazing!

IHM:

Also in the cities you play are you more driven to explore sights or explore places to eat?

Nora En Pure:

Definitely to eat 😉 I’m not very much into sight seeing. I love to experience a country but not from the tourist perspective. And mostly I simply don’t have the time to go around a lot.

IHM:

You majored in Criminal Psychology. What is your take on Netflix’s docu-series “Making a Murderer”?

Nora En Pure:

To be honest, I haven’t watched it yet. I am a series junkie but I just don’t find the time for it these days. I will definitely give it a try sometime soon.

IHM:

The No Xcuses Vs. Enormous Tunes Bus Tour seems like it was inevitable. EDX, Croatia Squad, and you have done remixes and overall seem like a family. How is it touring with them?

Nora En Pure:

It was great, as mentioned above I most appreciated being in a bus, that was amazing. We are in fact one team, it’s like family. It was also a really good experience musically, to see each other play and we complemented each other very well with the sound.

IHM:

Any nicknames you guys have for each other?

Nora En Pure:

Hmm… not really. Nothing that could be disclosed here 😉

IHM:

Pretty soon you’ll be in Miami at the same time as Ultra Music Festival. As a successful artist who usually has to perform at events how hard is it to become a regular festival/concert-goer and enjoy shows in the crowd?

Nora En Pure:

When I was younger I used to go to festivals myself. Now I prefer not to be in huge crowds. I love the shows that have less people, one can move and dance nicely, get a drink whenever you want, it’s way more relaxed. 

Miami is always busy there are so many events, this year I am playing many more shows than last year. The day pool parties are my favourites! The vibe is excellent and my music fits really well.

IHM:

I’m a little biased being from California, but how excited are you to be performing at Coachella?

Nora En Pure:

Of course I am very excited. It is an honour to play there. They feature huge acts, legends and new cutting edge talents. It’s amazing that they were interested in me and I can’t wait for it.

IHM:

Have you ever been there before?

Nora En Pure:

No, it will be my first time!

IHM:  Who are you most excited to see this year?

Nora En Pure:

I like Rüfüs, I have met them a couple of times but never actually heard them play. Black Coffee from South Africa I have also never heard live. Then obviously heavy weights like Guns n Roses…

IHM:

I’ll be excited to see you Friday at Ruby Skye and at Coachella! Thanks for your time.

Nora En Pure:

THANK YOU!

(Of note, Nora En Pure is not playing Coachella anymore due to scheduling conflicts, and IHM is much gutted about that…)

Fellow I Heart Moosiq special features contributor Nick recently mentioned to me his penchant for Nora En Pure’s electronic music, noting that the Swiss producer is one of the most talented producers on the rise right now. I’d have to agree. After all, if we looked back at my track record of sharing Nora En Pure tunes and praising the bejesus out of them, it’s no secret I’ve been a fan of her pumping beats and rousing house. On new song I Got To Do, Nora En Pure teams up with Dutch duo Redondo, combining their skills to send us into dance euphoria with an eruption of bumping hot and smoothly soulful nu-house. I Got To Do’s frisky strings, deep disco beats, and dapper keys will keep you moving till the sun comes up. The track is out now on Spinnin’, grab it on Beatport.

Nora En Pure’s at it again, dazzling me with her blaring synths and luscious beats. This time, the Zurich based producer has me spinning around my living room on a gorgeous Sunday morning via her new remix of Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank hit Shades Of Grey, featuring Delaney Jane. It’s more like shades of rosy pink and softly warm blues on the cool and sparkling deep house edit. This is some of the most euphoric deep house I’ve encountered all week long, and it’ll be part of Oliver Heldens & Shaun Frank’s official remix package out September 21st that also includes remixes by Ephwurd and The Golden Boy.

After gravitating to Nora En Pure’s dance beats and uplifting aura on a slew of magnificent remixes these past months, I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m most certainly a Nora En Pure fan. When the Swiss producer’s remix of Paul Harris’ Dragonette featuring jam, One Night Lover, dropped into my inbox this morning, I found myself immediately drawn into Nora En Pure’s deep, funky artistry yet again. She has a brilliant handle on balancing resplendently buoyant bass with lustrously airy synths and lively piano chords. There’s no doubt she can get me grooving all night long. The remix is available for purchase now on Beatport.

Australian synth wizards RÜFÜS DU SOL dropped a killer new single earlier this summer to follow up on their debut album ATLAS, and it was well worth the long excruciating wait. Velveteen electronic song You Were Right now morphs into a deep and funky club floor filler on this remix by Zurich’s Nora En Pure. Alternating between serene blissfulness and summery deep bass, the remix also intoxicates to the fullest extent with additional blaring synths, rich piano, and soulful beats. RÜFÜS DU SOL and Nora En Pure crossed paths in Sydney and decided to offer up this phenomenal instrumental house track. I guess we can thank of musi gods.

For a wonderfully euphoric deep house remix, check out this edit of Swiss dance act Me & My Toothbrush’s One Thing. Zurich based production act Nora En Pure embellishes the song with an immeasurable amount of serene and soothing bliss. It’s both entrancing and uplifting, the perfect jam to lose myself to after my Warriors’ incredible comeback in game 3 of the playoff series against the Pels. I suggest Pels fans also get a piece of this remix action, it might help alleviate the heartache and dejection they must be experiencing.
