March 22 @ 22:00 - 22:05€10
Nickodemus has been touring as a DJ all over the World since the mid 90’s. As a producer, he has released three albums & remix albums entitled ‘Endangered Species”Sun People’ & ‘Moon People’, as well as 10 ‘Turntables on the Hudson’ compilations to date.
As an experienced musical traveler, he excels mostly when playing in versatile settings, letting space and time guide the musical journey. His latest release ‘WONDER WORLD: 10 years of Painting Outside the Lines’ captures a decade of DIY productions and memorable releases on his own WONDERWHEEL Recordings label. Songs such as “Cleopatra in New York’ (with Carol C) and ‘Mi Swing es Tropical’ (with Quantic & Hector ‘Tempo’ Alomar)’ broke barriers in dance music and paved the way for global fusion artists with heavy beats of club music, combined with organic eastern and tropical instrumentation.
Nickodemus has sustained this energy and momentum for over 15 years with the Turntables on the Hudson parties and the WONDERWHEEL Recordings label, attracting artists from all over the world including Alsarah and the Nubatones, Novalima, The Pimps of Joytime, The Spy from Cairo, Chancha Via Circuito, Sorceress and many more to come. In his remix machine, Nickodemus has done mixes for a wide range of artists including: Bob Marley, Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Thievery Corporation, Quantic, Mr Scruff, The Pimps of Joytime, Miguel Migs, Natasha Atlas, Quantic & more. He’s now touring in USA, Europe, Australia and the Middle East. On top of that he is working on his fourth studio album coming out early 2016. ‘
In an EDM world where seeing DJs’ faces on billboards is a commonplace occurrence, sometimes it is better to be flying just a bit under the radar. Following the more modest approach, New York-based Nickodemus has managed to successfully maintain a steady career for 20 years, and counting.’ – DJ TIMES MAGAZINE ‘
With remixes for Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday, Mr Scruff, Thievery Corporation, Quantic and more, Nickodemus has reached all parts of the globe with a frictionless approach to music that coasts from international dub and downtempo to house and techno.’ -Stamp The Wax UK ‘A champion of dance music emanating from all corners all over the world…’ – Big Shot Magazine ‘Incorporating Balkan, Puerto Rican, Indian, African, Brazilian and Jamaican sounds into one continuous barrage of bottom-heavy rhythms, ‘Sun People’ is easily one of the most danceable albums of 2009.’ – National Geo Music
