Needle Drop:
Ensemble Mik Nawooj, “C.R.E.A.M.”

Contemporary composer JooWan Kim’s 10-piece chamber orchestra channels early Wu-Tang and Snoop Dogg.

The modern mashup may have found its live counterpart in Ensemble Mik Nawooj. The Oakland-based orchestra is putting its classical chops to work on the golden age of hip hop, re-imaging essential cuts like “C.R.E.A.M.” through the lens of Bach. Kim creates with the firmly held belief “This is the future of hip-hop, America’s newest great indigenous music.”

“C.R.E.A.M.” and four other reworks appear on their Golden Fetus Records release, Ensemble Mik Nawooj: A Hip-Hop Orchestra. The group will make their Los Angeles debut on October 29th at The Mint; an evening that promises a fleshed out, forward thinking approach to hip hop in an intimate setting.
