(LM109) RELEASE DATE 17.05.24

Nikki Nair - Snake


Nikki Nair marks his debut release on LUCKYME®. Snake EP sees his amorphous sound spread even further in a six-track riot of noisy hardware slammers. The EP title a nod to the Nair family, who adopt the serpent as their guardian, this release is a far cry from his recent 'song of the summer' with Hudson Mohawke, Set The Roof. Instead, we’re treated to a wild ride of rasping, swaggering tracks for only the most depraved dance floor moments.

“The snake has been a very important part of my life. The ethnic group that my family is a part of worships snakes, and there is a mythology of the Nairs being descended from them. In the west they are usually a symbol of evil - like in the Bible. But for me, they feel like a symbol of my life-force - and growing up around Christian churches in a very Christian area, I always identified with the snake from the Adam and Eve story and felt like the snake was the protagonist.”
