THE NANOFISH DIPPERS
The Nanofish Dippers are a nine piece Ska and Reggae band from Berlin, founded by the members of a Jazz combo who realized that instead of
listening to The Specials, Seeed, Bob Marley and The Slackers all day they should use their Jazz training and improvisational skills to dive
head-first into offbeat music themselves and leave it to others to go mental over figuring out whether the style was dub or rap.
That was ten years ago. Since then, rooted in Berlin’s vibrant alternative subculture, the Nanofish Dippers have played the city’s
venues big and small, crossed paths with local legends such as The Magic Touch, the Berlin Boom Orchestra and Vello Público, toured Russia and
won the “Hymn for Neukölln” song contest at a time that borough still was considered a “problem district” people usually wouldn’t exactly say
nice things about in public.
The band works like a swarm of tiny fish, always in flux due to the individual musicians travelling and returning to Berlin. As if the
Nanofish Dipper’s original Roots Reggae and Ska style hadn’t been weird enough to begin with, their sound continuously evolves and changes with
the new musical influences brought back home to Berlin from Spain and Corea, London a
nd Mexico, Italy and California, La Reunion and Vietnam,
inspired by Funk and HipHop, Swing and Latin-American Music.
