Raw, energetic & emotional Techno.
Born into a musical family, Nur Jaber had a love for playing the piano and drums throughout her childhood. Embracing these strong musical roots, it was only natural that in 2010 following a move to Berlin, she found herself becoming immersed in the house and techno scene that the magical city has to offer.
Nur’s beautiful yet troubled homeland of Beirut, Lebanon has served as an ongoing inspiration for her creativity - Her depth of emotional investment in her art is immediately apparent in her distinctive and trademark production sound, which often includes her own vocals - a shining example that art which reflects personal experiences is one of the most sincere ways of communicating with people.
Summers spent at Boston’s Berklee College of Music allowed Nur to gain a plethora of valuable experiences and musical knowledge, and the enhanced ability to translate her feelings into music - it was here that her love of electronic music first really started to take hold.
In her own words, Nur is on a journey to “communicate in the language of music.” There are few dancefloors in the world that afford a DJ the opportunity to do this in the same way that Berghain does. Nur’s powerful ability to tell a story through music and interact with the crowd was highlighted when she played an 11 hour marathon set there in November 2019, remaining a regular performer at the legendary club ever since.
The re-opening of the global scene in 2022 saw Nur carry on with the strong trajectory that she left on, playing her fifth Boiler Room set, having also headlined for the prestigious platform in the USA. Add to this the raft of landmark performances she has had with the likes of Tomorrowland [BE], Awakenings ADE, [NL], Glitch Festival [MT], amongst many others - her dedication to her craft and popularity with fans continue to be internationally recognised.
Meticulous and dedicated preparation, and a strong understanding of territories and cultures ensures that whether playing an extended set to an intimate crowd, or 2 hours on a festival mainstage - Nur curates and delivers a set that has an understanding of time, place and mood, and brings the crowd on the journey with her from the first till the last record.
Nur’s journey is showcased by releases on her label, On S’en Fout “OSF” (Translated:We don’t care). The talented producer has also featured on Ellen Allien’s infamous BPitch Control, delivered music for Amelie Lens’ ‘Fabric Presents’ album - as well as flexing her creative diversity with exclusive content for Adult Swim and Netflix - all this in addition to releases on her secondary label, ‘If Only’ which features film score-esque music.
Never one to rest on her laurels, and with a strong desire to keep evolving - it is an exciting time for both promoters and audiences alike to be a part of what is next for Nur Jaber.
