Nickodemus’ Sun People Remixed

sunpplremixedNickodemus unleashed his sophomore album, Sun People, earlier this year, inspired by the big fireball in the sky & some wonderful people, with uplifting dance music from all parts of the world. Now the remixes have arrived on the full-length Sun People Remixed CD.

Earthrise Soundsystem add tribal flavor to the track “Sun Children,” while Tal Klein blesses “N’Dini” with a groovy rework. Trip-hop veteran J Boogie puts an electro twist on “Didibina” and Swedish producer Red Astaire funks up “Sun Children” with rubbery basslines, hand-claps, wah-wah guitar, and cowbell to spare.  Get it now!

Tricky’s Knowle West Boy Remixed by South Rakkas Crew

Print
Tricky Meets South Rakkas Crew comes out today, a version excursion of ten tracks from Tricky‘s Knowle West Boy, where electro-dancehall collides with Tricky’s whispering ‘sprechgesang’ lyrical style to create a dancehall filler, radio killer, soundtrack thriller that seems to touch on all the happening urban sounds from around the globe. We’re talking hip-hop, reggae and rock inna dubstep dancehall style that’s left-of-center pop for the 21st century. As Tricky says: “We come in peace and leave you in pieces.”

VV Brown’s “Miss You”

eus24-003-mfThe lovely Ms. VV Brown does not waste time. While she’s touring internationally, she’s steadily dropping acoustic videos and low-fi recordings on the web. Download her cover of the Rolling Stones’ track, “Miss You” (and turn the volume up!).  If this soul-drenched version of the rock song sounds familiar, you might be remembering the days of Musiq Soulchild and his 2003 album Soulstar. (Revisit Musiq’s version here)

Travelling Like the Light, the upcoming full-length album, will be released in the US on Capitol Records on February 9, 2010.
