About Buddy Nam Nam (Created June 19, 2013)
If you've ever found yourself asking, "What's a Birdy Nam Nam?" … wonder no more. This four-man DJ crew from France takes its name from a line in the 1968 Peter Sellers film "The Party," which adequately describes the life these guys lead.
Comprised of Crazy-B, DJ Pone, DJ Need and Little Mike, Birdy Nam Nam went on to win the 2002 DMC World DJ Team Championship in 2002 before shifting their focus to studio work. Four years later, they released their self-titled debut album on Uncivilized World Records, and in March of that year performed at the famed music conference SXSW.
With their sound a mix of jazz, funk and downtempo sounds, Birdy Nam Nam has been around the world, bringing an unmatched energy to dance floors everywhere. The follow-up to their debut album, a single called "Trans Boulogne Express," arrived in 2007 with a more electro-flavored appeal. That song later became part of the 2009 project "Manual for Successful Rioting," an album that featured the group programming and playing synths.
In 2010, Birdy Nam Nam returned to the studio to record a third album. Between two studios, a myriad of sounds and a lot of collaboration, the end result was a 10-track EP titled "Jaded Future." Next came an 11-track LP called "Defiant Order," a futuristic, darker record for the group. Wanna know when Birdy Nam Nam comes to town? They're on a tour now that will take them everywhere from Belgium to Spain and eventually back to France by August 2013.
