Nickodemus and the Spy from Cairo 

Wednesday, Nov 18 2009

DJ Sep's weekly reggae club night, "Dub Mission," continues to rack up impressive special guests. On Sunday, she showcases New York producers Nick "Nickodemus" DeSimone and Moreno Visini, aka the Spy from Cairo, who previously recorded as Zeb. DeSimone and Visini fuse dub and international sounds, heavy on the traditional Middle Eastern percussion and instruments: souk sounds meet King Tubby uptown. The two have rocked NYC's Turntables on the Hudson and Giant Step parties for years, as well as remixing and collaborating with Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Baaba Maal, and Astor Piazzolla.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
