The Nonce

the nonce

The Nonce, possibily not the best name for a UK audience, released their debut album “World Ultimate” in 1995 on Rick Rubins American Records label. It mixed laid back, sun filled beats with Nouka (or Sach as he is now known) and Yusef Afloat smooth, old skool influenced rhymes, easily comparable to the likes of A Tribe Called Quest, Pharcyde, Digable Planets and so on.
The group released a handfull of records up to the late 90’s, until Yusef Afloat was sadly found dead by the side of a LA freeway in 2000.
Since then Sach has gone on to have a number of solo releases, including the excellent 2004 album “Sach 5th Ave.” .
But here we have the first single taken from World Ultimate, and possibly the song they are most famous for.

“Mix Tapes”
