Mystic Molay 04:01


Steadfast in the studio working on the new album for Autumn 2017, here's another hint at what's been going on in the world of Nickodemus' latest creations & collaborations. "Mystic Molay" features Hassan Ben Jaafe, a Maâlem, or master Gnawa musician & his group Innov Gnawa. The song's lyrics reference & welcome the ancient Sufi mystic teacher Molay Abdelkader Jilani (Morrocan spelling) or Abd al-Qadir Gilani (Iraq/ Persian spelling). Recording the vocals & hajhuj (or gimbri), metal qarqaba (castanets) & the kouyos (chorus) & topping it all off with melodies on whirlitzer & violins, Nickodemus brings back that old school analog funk grooves known on his earlier albums collaborating with live musicians. In the spirit of club culture, Nickodemus solicited the remix talents of Aroop Roy who dropped a modern broken beat house version as well as Umoja's stripped down Cumbia meets Gnawa version for the dance-floor. Set to be released June 2 & the full album for October 2017.
