Daimon Schwalger a.k.a. The Nomad

scn_rw13From teaching himself scratching and programming archaic drum machines, The Nomad did his time playing in dingy clubs in Dunedin. He formed locust in early 1996, with Pearl Runga which saw them gain heavy airplay on the student Radio Network, and touring with David Harrow, and Salmonella Dub. 1997, Locust disbanded and the Nomad was born. Daimon began promoting his own gigs, taking control of the promotional material, artwork, and touring throughout the country.

He has two albums to date, the more drum’n’bass oriented Movement, and most recently the breakbeat dub influenced Second Selection. Second Selection was recorded with Tiki, from Salmonella Dub, and featuring guests, Lotus, MC Antsman from Beats N Pieces, and Farda P from Rockers Hifi.

After great responses in Christchurch, Daimon has made Wellington his new home base, and is sure to continue roaming, while gracing us with his unique subtronica. Daimon describes himself as an all up NZ kid.
