Jacob Groening‘s Kamai Music starts 2023 with a deep and melodic EP from Niki Sadeki which along with the three originals also features a remix by El Mundo.
Niki Sadeki is an Iranian-Canadian artist who is currently based in Brooklyn, United States. She first rose to fame as a skilled DJ who had an innate talent for reading the dance floor and mixing skills that allowed her to effortlessly blend genres ranging from melodic techno to organic house.
After establishing herself on the international DJ scene, Niki Sadeki started to produce her own tracks and in 2020 made her first official release. Utilising her knowledge of what works on the dance floor, her tracks have been an instant success and her back catalogue already includes tracks on Kiosk ID, down., and her own record label Quetame.
El Mundo is a Dutch artist who is known for being a talented musician that blends live instrumentation with electronic sounds to create organic house that’s rich in melody. Along with solo tracks on the likes of Café Del Mar Music and Do Not Sit, El Mundo has also collaborated with the likes of Satori and Zazou on labels such as Crosstown Rebels, Get Physical and Kindisch. El Mundo also runs the Quetame record label in collaboration with Niki Sadeki and Zazou.
‘Going on to Glory’ opens the release with a stripped-back groove that builds tantalising suspense fuelled by uplifting pads and techy percussion.
‘March of the Living’ has deep chords layered with sparkling synths to create a haunting atmosphere nestled on a foundation of crisp percussion with fizzing hi-hats.
‘One Lane Bridge’ blends a hypnotic arpeggio with metallic percussion and rippling pads that make a sonic soundscape with a cosmic atmosphere that’s underpinned by fast-flowing beats, filling the track with uplifting energy.
El Mundo’s remix of ‘Going On to Glory’ is a refined version that stays true to the original’s vibe. Stripping back some of the parts, his version makes more prominent use of the sweeping pads and fluttering melody synth.
You can now listen to the full premiere of ‘March of the Living’ exclusively on When We Dip. Enjoy!
