I caught my man NIKKO deejaying at Sway on Friday night. It reminded me of his profound statement on Radio Lily from last summer.

“The outliers of the world make the interesting stuff happen. I don’t mean to quote Nassim Taleb, but he has this idea of the Black Swans. And the Black Swans are the things in life that are odd and different that we don’t expect; and in the music scene you have the Zomby’s of the world and the Burial’s of the world and the other millions of white label producers who’ve made excellent tracks and will never get credit for it because A) they didn’t want credit or B) it got lost in time or whatever. And that’s cool too, because that helps art.”

Listen to his remix of “Strange Touch” by Sound Pelligrino Thermal Team below.
