Even with his new record release on ESL Music, Sun People, Nickodemus can’t help but share his passion for the best pizzerias in NYC and compare each to some of his favorite music producers.
With the release of We Are To Answer (out June 9th on ESL Music), Ancient Astronauts have prepared a mixtape for your summer activities in the sun.
From old school hip hop classics, to new school beats, the mix skips in and out of genres, lacing hints of reggae with thick slabs of funk.

Marking a foray into new frontiers of D.C.’s ESL Music, Ancient Astronauts‘ debut We Are To Answer is a melting pot of funk, dub reggae, and pure unadulterated hip hop. Featuring vocal collaborations with Bootie Brown and Imani of legendary hip hop group the Pharcyde, Azeem, Tippa Irie, Bajka, Phat Old Mamas, Ulf Stricker, Raashan Ahmad and Entropik, it’s a block rockin’, boom-bappin’ sonic tour-de-force.
Their very name, Ancient Astronauts, implies a mash-up of the distant past and the far future; traits exemplified in their melding of genres with forward-thinking flair and production technique. The artists behind Switchstance Recordings, Kabanjak and Dogu hail from Cologne, Germany…via outer space! Coy with their true origins, the duo can only confirm that they returned to planet Earth in 2001 after traveling the musical cosmos for thousands of years.
