Brooklyn based DJ/producer Nickodemus has been an ambassador for global club sounds since he started spinning at the legendary Giant Step parties that rocked New York in the mid 90′s. When he founded the legendary Turntables On The Hudson party with his friends Mariano & Nappy G, they continued mixing their eclectic DJ sets with live musicians. The influence of hip-hop, house, reggae, soul and jazz led him to the sounds of Africa, Brazil, the Caribbean, the Middle East and India. Throughout his DJ travels he built an extensive record collection and an extended network of collaborators from Puerto Rico to Beirut who performed on his original recordings and became part of the tapestry that started in the club and manifested itself on his first two full-length records, Endangered Species and Sun People.
Out now is Nickodemus’ new project, ‘MOON PEOPLE’ is a brilliant and natural addition to his previous 2009 album ‘SUN PEOPLE’. This album is for the night people that capture the energy of the global village that is New York. It features luminaries such as Afrika Bambaataa, new-Latin/Electo group Navegante and one of Nickodemus’ oldest collaborators Zeb. “Sun People had a live organic daytime party sound,” he explains. “Moon People is the deeper electronic side of my music. It’s dedicated to the nocturnal people who work, create, party and operate while the rest of the world is asleep, with hints of playfulness and sunshine.”
