“Alkoan Kulu Bidoor” is a cover song made famous by the Egyptian Nubian pop singer Mohamed Mounir & features the lyrics of Abdel Rahim Mansoor and the melody of Hussain Jasir (1981). Roughly translated: “the whole Universe turns and we turn with it; “today is a sea we cross to reach our dreams”. This new version takes the song to the new millenium with a classic Nickodemus hip hop meets dub beat & live Oud by the Spy from Cairo. iZEM (Soundway Records) delivers a heavy hitting footwork version bound to rock any global bass party Worldwide.
The first glimpse of Nickodemus‘ forthcoming album in Spring 2017 is a new collaboration with singer & songwriter Alsarah (Alsarah and the Nubatones). After the election results here in the US, we’ve decided to make the profits from this Bandcamp release go to the ACLU to make sure we continue to support people’s civil rights in this country!
“The Crow” written by Alsarah and Nickodemus moves deep into 122 BPM stacking synth house that lyrically tells a story of ones identity in the metaphor of a Crow who looses his/ her feathers & tries to replace them with others. Saagan (the new project by super house producer Andreas Saag) turned in a beautiful melodic remix that turns deep Detroit with the sounds of Crows & Arabic strings.
