Cali-based beat maker, DJ and instrumentalist, Noetik the Alchemist, lights the night on fire with an enamoring music video for ‘1000 Ancestors’ off of newly released album, Encode. Entrenched with ritualistic intonations and guided by a trance-inducing progression, the performance captures the essence of ancestry and quakes the jungle floor with its endemic instrumentation, cascading percussion and deep, luscious bassline. Plunge into the ceremonial scene and dance with the tribe in the stream above, and be sure to check out Noetik’s new album, Encode, available below.
