Nicholas Kopernicus Release “Audiocentric Unplugged EP”


The very unique and grounded duo, Nicholas Kopernicus, have released three acoustic tracks from their debut album “Audiocentric“.  The acoustic recording is called ” Audiocentric Unplugged EP”. This is the definition of home grown music, that sounds as pure as you can get it.  What I love about their style is that there isn’t any attitude or pomp, just music.  The acoustic recording of three of their album songs, boil their songs down further to their essence.  It’s a little brief, but with any good music you always want more.  You can download the here or here. Give them a listen, and decide for your self.  Once you listen, and love it, check our their entire album here.

Soulified’s Favorite New Male Artists of 2009


Receiving Soulified’s 2nd award for 2009, is Nicholas Kopernicus.  They came out with their debut album Audiocentric, and really created a unique sound.  Nicholas Kopernicus is made up of Jason “classicbeatz” Minnis (Producer/Pianist/Songwriter) and Seon Gomez (Guitarist/Songwriter).  With so many new acts arriving on the scene, it’s refreshing to have music that sets it’s own mark.  Since the their debut release, the have a video to their song “Legacy” (video below), and they have “Audiocentric Unplugged EP” being released in January of 2010.  It’s being released in conjunction with Laid Back Radio.

I’ve had the privilege to enjoy an album, from two musicians that together create a sound that has a pure, solid, and honest. They are Jason “classicbeatz” Minnis (Producer/Pianist/Songwriter) and Seon Gomez (Guitarist/Songwriter). They make up Nicholas Kopernicus, who recently dropped their debut album “AudioCentric”.

With eleven tracks to the album, it gives you a very good opportunity to understand their sound. Each song presents itself as it’s own being, which adds to the feeling of solidness I mentioned.  One of my favorite songs on the album, is Grand Central Featuring Sixteenstone. Sixteenstone’s vocals on that track are great, melodic, and enchanting.  The richness of the instruments comes through all the tracks, but for me on Grand Central especially.  My second favorite song is Candle Dreams.  Now, I hate to compare or mention other artists when I am talking about another artist’s sound.  For me, Candle Dreams puts me in the mind of Sweetback, if they were boiled down to a concentrated form, and simmered.  I think that you will enjoy their sound, and the vibe they are serving.  The album is out, and you can get it at any other the following sites, AmazonLaLa and eMusic.
