NOD (Next Of Din) is a songwriting / production duo from Berlin, Germany. Nora & Rafael, two siblings with Austrian-Moroccan roots, started playing several instruments early on under the guidance of their father - a cellist who recently toured with Philipp Glass. He nurtured the artists' absolute ear and inspired them in their compositions. After moving to Berlin both artists continued working on their solo projects (Nora Médin & Rafael Rikou) and each released several EPs and Albums.

Since they were always involved in each other’s projects in one way or another and spoke a mutual musical language, they decided to join forces and work together as a songwriting / production duo.

With film and moving image forming a central part of their inspiration, Nora and Rafael quickly kicked off their collaboration with commercial compositions for Veuve Cliquot, O2, Dior. Following up, they composed their first score for a short film which was later awarded at the Valencia Film Festival.

Together both artists cover all sorts of genres from Indie-Electronic, Pop, R&B, Neo- Classic to Afrobeat, so they went on producing a wide variety of artists such as Kelvyn Colt, Jugglerz, Roger Rekless, Anthony Wills, Selassie, RIA & Paula Douglas. Always rooted in classical, oriental and African music, NOD have created a unique style that is praised and supported by artists, producers and the industry.
