History

NOVA HEART feat Rodion Nova Heart is Helen Feng's 冯海宁 long awaited solo project.

Upon culmination of her final whirlwind European tour as front-woman of the seminal Chinese electronic group the Pet Conspiracy 宠物同谋 in fall 2010, took a few days off in Istanbul to prepare the next steps for her current band Free The Birds 自游. The powers of the city threw her and her partner DJ Metro Tokyo into raucous Raki-fueled nights through dizzying mazes of narrow alleys into the ancient discotheques of Constantinople. One fateful night, a chance encounter with Roman electronic-cowboy Rodion (Gomma Records) gave birth to NOVA HEART. After returning to Beijing, Helen set forth the arduous task of sending her self-produced tracks 3000 miles down the silk road to Rome where Rodion would tap them with his magic disco wand. The outcome is a mix of sexy psychedelic disco with lo-fi ethereal pop vocals. A sinister disco beat buried under haunting soundscapes makes it sound like as if ghosts are dancing under a mirrorball. Helen now is in Rome to finalize the album with Rodion and the buzz from international DJs about her album is already taking off. Rumours have it that Bo Xuan (ex-Hedge Hog bassist) and Wang Hui (guitar player of Free the Birds) will join Nova Heart live on stage.
