DJ Tom Select, Nino Graye, Buzz T., Fantomas and various other musicians began working on a bunch of songs for a concept album that is scheduled to be released in 2018. The band logo on the left is in place already, it has been designed a few months ago by Fantomas (Sound Survivors) and Alex Schnaible (followmedesign) and represents Piano keys, a Guitar, a Vinyl record and the famous Akai MPC pads - hence, the most important tools in use for the #NATBP album production.The project will be focussed on instrumental Beat Music with a blend of different genres and influences, mostly recorded live with Drums, Guitar, Bass, Piano, Violin and MPC.
