DJ Sep's weekly reggae club night, "Dub Mission," continues to rack up impressive special guests. On Sunday, she showcases New York producers Nick "Nickodemus" DeSimone and Moreno Visini, aka the Spy from Cairo, who previously recorded as Zeb. DeSimone and Visini fuse dub and international sounds, heavy on the traditional Middle Eastern percussion and instruments: souk sounds meet King Tubby uptown. The two have rocked NYC's Turntables on the Hudson and Giant Step parties for years, as well as remixing and collaborating with Omar Faruk Tekbilek, Baaba Maal, and Astor Piazzolla.
