Nik Pascal


This interesting artist was active in the '70s before selling off all his synthesizer gear to Steve Roach, a former racing car driver who became known as an electronic music performer in his own right. Often credited in various combinations of the names Nik Raicevic and Nik Pascal, he made one of his earliest albums on the Buddah label as simply Head, attempting to cash in on the psychedelic drug culture by naming his extended synthesizer noodlings after illegal drugs such as "Cannabis Sativa" -- worth a 17-minute album track, no less.

This interesting artist was active in the '70s before selling off all his synthesizer gear to Steve Roach, a former racing car driver who became known as an electronic music performer in his own right. Often credited in various combinations of the names Nik Raicevic and Nik Pascal, he made one of his earliest albums on the Buddah label as simply Head, attempting to cash in on the psychedelic drug culture by naming his extended synthesizer noodlings after illegal drugs such as "Cannabis Sativa" -- worth a 17-minute album track, no less. Raicevic eventually put out five albums on his own Narco label after being dumped from Buddah for being too influenced by drugs. Despite this judgment and the name of his own imprint, Raicevic was clearly about something more serious than stoning; his analog synthesizer work has been considered ahead of its time, setting the standard for what other performers from scenes such as Berlin would come up with. The obscuro label seems to have been invented to fit performers such as Raicevic, who also apparently made use of the stage name Flemming, as if things weren't confusing enough already. Nik "Pascal" Raicevic’s chief claim to fame is as a session percussionist for two tracks on the Rolling Stones’ Goat’s Head Soup, but in the early 1970s he released several pioneering electronic instrumental albums under various names. After selling off his equipment to Steve Roach, he's dropped off into complete anonymity and obscurity, very few knowing his whereabouts and what he's doing now.
