Nikaya LP Eng [pdf]

Past Present Future [03:04]

Dear friends, and friends,

some of you may know: Nikaya will be recording her new songs and arrangements in the studio from January to February 2013. The producer and sound engineer for this project has been Boris Wilsdorf of for already many weeks. His longstanding experiences with bands like the Einstürzende Neubauten, Dirk von Lowtzow [of Tocotronic] or with his own project Automat will benefit us immensely and will be recognised on the long player. Yes, that’s right, Nikaya will release the album on vinyl! Timeless music pressed on an indestructible recording medium! So, go ahead and steal your parent’s record player! Dust your almost forgotten devices! Experience the music of our new millennium on the machines of the old one. The sound will be explosive and it will be worth it. 

Roger Frank of, designer of the cover of the debut CD “Everyone Needs A Peaceful Light” and creator of our Nikaya logo, is going to be responsible for the LP design and the necessary fonts. We won’t give away too much, but Illia tells: ”It will be at least good enough to pin the cover to the wall as a piece of art!” Vinyl. Cover. MP3 versions for each buyer anyway.

We are also proud to announce that we could engage musician and DJ Steve Morell from Berlin (Head of for this release. He is going to make sure that copies of the LPs will get to the radio stations, selected journalists and promoters. He’s got contacts in London, Madrid, Prague and Dresden.

Some of you may be asking themselves: who is going to pay for such a production? Record companies don’t have much money to spend these days, as music can be found all over the internet. Like any proper-up-and-coming band, we will have to execute the biggest part of the work ourselves, as we are so much looking forward to sharing this product with you. But – it all won’t work without the help of our fans and friends. Therefore you now have the chance to buy the forthcoming Nikaya LP in advance. There will be a limited edition of 500 pieces for our supporters to say “thank you”. This means you will be able to purchase the long player for only 12 Euros. We believe this is fair and will be joyful for all involved!

The way to order is old school. Here are our bank details. You transfer the money and write “LP NIKAYA 2013 Buying” in the subject line – that’s it, you leave the rest to us. Please send us the delivery address in a separate e-mail to , so we know where we may send your parcel to or let us know if you rather pick up the record personally in Berlin, Brandenburg an der Havel or in Montevideo.

Don’t hesitate to order and thus directly influence the production of the new album.

We herewith like to say THANK YOU in advance! Nikaya
