Pique-nique Recordings Presents: Innov Gnawa Live + Nickodemus at Trans Pecos

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. 

$10 advance tickets are available here. https://www.ticketfly.com/purchase/event/1160263

Mr Assister Guest Mix for Stamp The Wax

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." 

PN001 - Innov Gnawa 'Toura Toura' 12"

We are proud to present our very first release, Innov Gnawa - ‘Toura Toura’ - a limited 12-inch in collaboration with REMIX ←→ CULTURE
