Behind the Music
Jimmy Dunne, known as Nogymx, is an Irish-born EFL professor who moonlights under his dual identity as a prolific producer based in South Korea. Renowned for his signature smooth and ethereal soundscapes, Nogymx masterfully guides his listeners to a realm of pure chill hip-hop bliss.
Producing hip hop beats on the dining room table of his family home, the former "No Gimmicks" underwent a rebranding resulting in a name that's frequently mispronounced yet memorable. Drawing inspiration from luminaries such as Emancipator; Nujabes; Uyama Hiroto; Marcus D, and described by Stereofox Records as “floating in a cross-genre sweet-spot that splits the difference between Bonobo and Freddie Joachim”, Nogymx has crafted a distinctive sound that beautifully marries nostalgia and forward-thinking innovation.
Supported by influential platforms like Nialler9, Lofi Girl, Chill Beats, Stereofox, Hip Dozer, The Jazz Hop Cafe, and more, the Irish artist has amassed a staggering 80+ million streams across all platforms, and has secured a place in over 200,000 user playlists.
However, the spotlight is now on Nogymx's forthcoming masterpiece, Pahdo 파도 This album is not just a musical endeavor but a commemoration of a decade spent in South Korea and a decade of sonic exploration since his first album.

The album is poised to showcase Nogymx's remarkable ability to craft intricate beats, weave lush electronic textures, and infuse a touch of nostalgia, offering an immersive listening experience that's bound to captivate audiences. Set to be released in the Februray 2024, Pahdo signifies a decade of musical evolution and celebrates Nogymx's enduring legacy in the world of music.
