100% Haich Ber Na: the do-it-all artist

As he releases his new single Nowhere Like It, the rising star shows us why there’s no one like him.

Haich Ber Na’s got many tal­ents: self-taught musi­cian, pro­duc­er, mix­er, direc­tor. His most impres­sive skill, how­ev­er, is the abil­i­ty to seam­less­ly chan­nel all of them into a slate of com­pelling projects. 

First dab­bling in hip-hop and grime, Haich Ber Nah’s debut EP Unbal­anced saw him take an avant-garde turn. Explor­ing mod­ern elec­tron­ic tex­tures and dab­bling in dub, it was a slick tran­si­tion. And luck­i­ly for us, there’s more – his upcom­ing Everywhere’s Home EP will be released on 16th October. 

A dystopi­an, futur­is­tic take on what home” is, until then you can enjoy this slow-build­ing elec­tron­ic cut Nowhere Like It. The track fea­tures the musician’s unpol­ished vocals over a jilt­ed beat, and comes accom­pa­nied by a Stan­ley Kubrick-esque, Space Odyssey-inspired visu­al, direct­ed by the man himself.

Where does he find the time? Check out the video below before get­ting the low­down – 100% style. 

10%: Where were you born, where were you raised and where are you now based?

Space. But now reside some­where in London.

20%: At what point did you realise you’d be able to do what you love for a living?

Actu­al­ly a few years ago, 2014. I saw a few more of my friends mak­ing a good liv­ing writ­ing and pro­duc­ing for peo­ple. And I thought: Cool if they can, I can.”

30%: What’s a piece of advice that changed your life?

My dad always said look after your face” when­ev­er we left the house. Not sure exact­ly what it means, but I always remem­ber it. 

40%: What kind of emo­tions and expe­ri­ences influ­ence your work?

I enjoy con­tem­pla­tion. If that counts as an emo­tion? Hap­py, sad, angry, are all cool but I don’t par­tic­u­lar­ly make music to mood”. Expe­ri­ence-wise, I like every­day sto­ries, fam­i­ly, work, love…

50%: What can you tell us about your next project?

It’s made up of five tracks pro­duced and writ­ten by myself. It’s main­ly me doing Ty Dol­la $ign impres­sions over weird beats. 

60%: Break down your typ­i­cal day at work…

That’s so dif­fi­cult because every­day is dif­fer­ent. I def­i­nite­ly think about music, watch an inter­view on YouTube and use the bath­room every­day. With­out fail. I make music and plan visu­als a lot, but there isn’t much order or schedule. 

70%: What can artists do to help save the world?

Make music true to them­selves. Hope­ful­ly it’ll make the lis­ten­er feel like they can do the same.

80%: Love, Like, Hate?

Love the inter­net, like nice meals out, hate the internet.

90%: Describe your sev­en min­utes in heaven…

Being alone, some­where hot with pret­ty views with a load of synths.

100%: Biggest pet peeve?

Not being able to find things when I need them.
