NICKODEMUS (Turntables On The Hudson / Wonderwheel / ESL - NYC)Hello everyone, thanks for stopping by! My real name is Nico... Nickodemus is a "Nick" name given to me at an early age. I am not Greek, but my journey started in Queens, so I love my Mediterranean cousins ;) Been dancing since birth, spinning records since 14, producing events since age 16 & producing music from about 20 on... I've produced, co-produced & released about 40 original tunes, 30 or so remixes, 10 compilation CD's and 2 full length solo albums called "ENDANGERED SPECIES" & "SUN PEOPLE" (both of which have full remix albums to compliment. Music has clearly been my passion. Getting people together with music (aka Turntables on the Hudson & Coney Island Love) is one of my favorite things to do! Turntables on the Hudson is one of NYC's longest running party & I'm proud to say alongside my partners Mariano & Nappy G & the whole crew, we've always kept things funky & fun for everyone!! We've entered our 11th Year of events & we're still going strong, so when in NYC, please swing on by!
From the early days of Giant Step, to today's Turntables on the Hudson parties, Nickodemus has been a key element in the NYC dance music scene for over 10 years. As a DJ & a producer, he explores the intersection of Urban & World Music with sounds of Funk, Folk, Jazz, Hip Hop, House & Dub- all with a message of peace, awareness & love for the dance.
With over 30 original songs & 40 or more remixes in the past 10 years, Nickodemus has carved a niche for himself in World Music & Dance Music by intersecting World & Urban sounds to make a unique dancefloor fusion of his own. Remixes for artists such as: Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Thievery Corporation, Sultan Khan, Astor Piazzolla, Gilfeme, Dublex Inc, Boozoo Bajou, Karuan, Madrid de los Austrias, Truby Trio & more... Along with songs selected for Sex & the City & various feature films, the first song, "Mi Swing es Tropical," on his debut album, "ENDANGERED SPECIES," has been used for the recent itunes+ipod advert.www.nickodemus.com
