As one half of Berlin duo Africaine 808, Nomad has become famous for his Vulkandance parties in the German capital. The DJ (and painter) ventured to NYC this week to treat audiences to his crate-digging style of deep house that draws on rare and obscure tracks from African rock and pop of the ’60s and ’70s. Nomad’s VIP Edit of Campos Neto’s “Dia Benga” typifies Nomad’s style and the energy he brings to his live shows. An obscure track is given a second life when Nomad throws in a few house elements and educates audiences on a new genre and era of tunes to discover.
