Nickodemus -  Sun People
Nickodemus – Sun People
Global electronica wizard Nickodemus returns with his second solo album, Sun People on ESL Music. Inspired by the big fireball in the sky, Sun People features uplifting dance music from Guinea, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Romania, India, Turkey, United Kingdom and New York City.
 

 Conceptually, Sun People was built with songs made for people who love the sun, sunshine and brighter days to come. Songs were inspired by various people Nickodemus met and places he’s been, along with his collective feelings of optimism. “Sun People makes the best of every situation. When that sun peaks out in the sky, it’s another day to feel and do something positive” Nickodemus says.

Sun People mixes positive sonic vibes from all over the globe with collaborators hailing from destinations including Guinea, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Romania, India, Turkey, United Kingdom and New York City. Recording artists The Real Live Show guests on the uplifting Hip-Hop jam “Sun Children” while Quantic lends his unmistakable groove on the Salsa Ritmo of “La Lluvia.”

Not to be outdone, Brazilian songstress Liliana Araujo features on the hot samba of “Gira Do Sol” while Mandingo vocalist Ismael Kouyate lends his Afro-beat groove to “N’Dini.” Packed with brilliant collaborations, Sun People is a pan-continental party not to be missed!
