We're very happy to be presenting a special evening at Black Flamingo in August. Tom Blip, head honcho of one of our favorite labels, Blip Discs, is making his U.S. debut at Black Flamingo. Jared will be joining him behind the booth. Not to be missed!
Jackson made a mix for Stamp the Wax's Monday Morning Mixtape series. Check it out here: http://www.stampthewax.com/2018/07/09/monday-morning-mixtape-208/
We couldn't be more thrilled to be working with Innov Gnawa on their brand new release, 'Aicha'.
We'll be bringing you more details on this beautiful release soon. For now, please enjoy this exclusive snippet of standout track 'Baniya', courtesy of Gilles Peterson.
December 21st was premiered on Gilles Peterson's BBC Radio 6 show in October 2017. A limited vinyl run will be available, courtesy of Pique-nique Recordings, in January 2018.
Jackson's debut at London's premier new audiophile spot, Spiritland, is up. Stream the four hour set below.
A great way to round out 2016!
We were also very happy to peep Innov Gnawa's latest collaboration with Bonobo. Listen to the powerful performance from the band here
Thanks to Gilles for the kind words. The vinyl is sold out everywhere, but you can still grab one of the handful of copies that remain at the Pique-nique Shop, if you're fast: remixculture.bandcamp.com/album/innov-gnawa

This week we are proud to present our first ever official Pique-nique party in collaboration with Trans-Pecos, one of our very favorite venues in New York!
Our good friends Innov Gnawa bring their full 6-piece line up to perform a very special set of hypnotic, rhythmic, and soaring Gnawa music, led by the legendary Maallem Hassan Ben Jafaar. Coming off the back of a sold out 'Lila' and their debut release with Pique-nique Recordings/Remix Culture, Innov Gnawa's intimate shows are currently gaining a lot of attention and are not to be missed.
Also joining us is NYC's own globetrotting, all encompassing DJ/ Producer,Nickodemus (Wonderwheel Recordings). Fresh from a six week spring tour which spanned the Worldwide Festival in Leysin, to 'Turntables on the Nile' in Cairo, Nico will be bringing home his typically mind expanding, celebratory music from all over the world.
Innov Gnawa and Nickodemus are two of New York's most established artists, constantly pushing the boundaries of their respective genres and finding ever expanding audiences as they go. For the first time, they both come to Trans Pecos for a uniquely curated pairing of sounds and styles, both new and traditional. Pique-nique Recordings' own Jackson Mico & Jared Proudfoot will be warming up the night from 7pm.

Here's a tightly packed mix of raw and percussive tunes from Mr Assister in support of our release this week.
Featuring some sounds that influenced his 'Toura Toura' reinterpretation as well as his brand new track 'Izma'. Essential listening!
"While most of these tracks have their roots in the African continent, I've tried to capture a rawness and percussive sensibility rather than be guided by a geographic focus."
You can buy the vinyl directly from us at Bandcamp, where you will also find a full download of Innov Gnawa's debut album.
'It's wonderful' - James Blake
Here is the first hour or so of our set at The Gun in east London on Friday November the 27th, with a snippet of the last tune of the night thrown in at the end, because we couldn't possibly leave it out... "Nuther'n Like Nuther'n" by Willis Jackson.
Thanks to Nick for having us and to our lovely friends that came to hang!
Jackson Mico & Jared Proudfoot
