Nikki Glaspie Shares “Sinister” Single
Nikki Glaspie shared a new single, “Sinister,” featuring Raydar Ellis. The track is set to land on Glaspie’s upcoming EP, iPhone Sessions.
Glaspie makes her solo debut — the renowned drummer has played with Beyoncé, Maceo Parker, Griz, North Mississippi All-Stars and her own band The Nth Power — with iPhone sessions. Glaspie recorded the entire effort on her iPhone in a unique educational initiative.
Nikki detailed the project in a statement. Read her words below:
I wanted to find a way to teach kids that they could be creative with their cell phone. Most kids don’t have access to computers or studios, but they do own smart-phones. At the foundation, we focus on presenting them with positive outlets to express their anger, depression, sadness, grief or anything they might be going through. These kids are surrounded by violence, drugs, alcohol, abuse and gang activity. We hope to provide positive reinforcement. So I started making beats on my phone to show them it was possible to make music with what you have.
The new track, “Sinister,” arrived with an accompanying music video. Watch it below:
