For the next volume of the long running Turntables on the Hudson series, Nickodemus head down south to Brazil to get a little dancefloor sunshine to warm up these cold winter months.
Some of the tracks features Brazil's DJ G that gives us Samba Da Terra, a deep, jazzy Brazilian house/samba fusion joint sure to get all the dancers on the floor. The ever prolific Simbad comes through with the brand new Detroit De Janiero, a bangin' track equally inspired by early Motor City Techno as the drum rhythms of Brazil. Also, Nickodemus and Simbad collaborate on BerimBOOM - another deep Electronic house joint with an infectious bassline that percussively floats into Rio. Wonderwheel mainstay Zeb comes with the slo-mo spacey dub house vibes of Space Forest.
New York City-based DJ/producer Nickodemus made a name for himself as the resident DJ of the long-running TurntablesOnTheHudson club night, and he also released numerous productions over the years, most notably the full-length albums Endangered Species (2006), Sun People (2009) & Moon People (2012). In addition, he has remixed a wide variety of artists such as Bob Marley, Nina Simone, Billy Holiday, Thievery Corporation, Mr Scruff, Quantic, The Pimps of Joytime, Balkan Beat Box & Natasha Atlas to name a few.
Born in the Bronx, he grew in Queens & Long Island, and was turned on to music at a young age thanks to his family, which played lots of music in the house, namely Motown, disco, African and Latin music. In the late '80s he grew interested in hip-hop, regularly tuning into the radio shows of DJ's Red Alert (98.7) & Marley Marl (107.5) on weekend nights. In 1990 he began DJing, inspired by the likes of Kid Capri and David Morales who he was able to go see when his older sister brought him to clubs like the Red Zone & others where she worked. His 1st residencies were the Giant Step & Organic Groove parties from 1996-2000. In 1998, he alongside Mariano & Nappy G, founded Turntables on the Hudson, a weekly club night at Chelsea Piers on the west side of Manhattan abutting the Hudson River. The club night proved popular and spawned events on the Nile (Cairo), the Caribbean (Tulum), las Ramblas (Barcelona) & more until today.
As co-founder and label manager of Brooklyn’s Bastard Jazz Recordings, Aaron DRM has been fortunate enough to travel the world playing records and representing one of NYC’s longest running and most respected boutique record labels. His DJ sets are wildly eclectic, bringing in sounds from the tidepools of House Music and deeper electronic sounds, Dub & Reggae, Hip-hop, B-Boy Breaks, Latin, Brazilian, Disco, Afrobeat and much more, always aimed straight for the dancefloor.
