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!
