DJ, Producer, Label Owner and founder of NYC’s legendary Turntables On The Hudson events, Nickodemus will stop by KCRW to mix a guest DJ set during DJ Jeremy Sole’s show tonight at 1am (technically Thursday morning). It will be available in the archives here after it airs.
“Nickodemus is a force of nature! Both on the turntables and in the studio. His approach, style and warmth get people, ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE, moving and smiling instantly.
He is one of my absolute favorite people to DJ with and I’m quite excited that he’ll be stopping by for a live set.
He’s been a key element in the NYC dance music scene for over 10 years and his sound is like a traveling circus that gets everyone’s hips & feet moving! It will stop off in the Middle East & Africa, over to Brazil, Colombia & the Caribbean, up to New Orleans & landing in his hometown, Brooklyn NYC.
The DJs at KCRW have been big supporters of his two albums “Engangered Species” and “Sun People,” and his seven “Turntables On The Hudson” compilations.
Nickodemus has also done official remixes for Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Bebel Gilberto, Sultan Khan, Thievery Corporation, Astor Piazzolla & many more.
His most recent recording effort is part of a fundraiser for The Earthchild Project in Capetown.
