Everytime I try to thank Nickodemus for all his amazing contributions to the world of music over the years and how his records have had a profound influence on my life, I’m fairly certain he looks at me like I’m crazy.
Humility is a wonderful thing, but it doesn’t stop the aforementioned from being true. His roots run deep and his energy behind the turntables (sometimes all four of them) is a force to be reckoned with. Here’s the latest offering on his label Wonderwheel Recordings featuring producers from some of the infamous Turntables On The Hudson crew. Describing it as otherworldly falls short of just how impressive it is. Even if global sounds aren’t your cup of tea, you’ve got to give a nod to this crew for carving trends, keeping up with the times and constantly embracing the earth as a global community. One love.
By now, you should know I dig Infernal Devices. Check out their EP on my label SpinSpinNYC, also their remix collaborations with Savoir Adore, Ming from Ming & FS drum & bass fame (Do any of you remember these records?) even Passion Pit (recently featured on SNL) to get a glimpse of this duo’s growing influence. Pay attention people, Infernal Devices deserve your cochleae. Better yet, check out this track they just dished me done by their colleague Allies For Everyone. It grew on me quickly. In fact, I listened to this single three or four times in a row this morning. It’s like that.
So, let’s throw it back … Nickodemus “Give The Drummer Some (Fort Knox Five Remix)” featuring Nappy G (great set the other night Nappy), Stimulus & Dionysos on Wonderwheel / ESL Music … and I’ll see you crazies for our Hurricane Sandy Relief Benefit featuring Nickodemus, Nutritious & Wiseacre with proceeds benefiting those affected from the Caribbean to the USA at Fetish Authentic in NYC Wednesday, Thanksgiving Eve November 21st at 105 Rivington Street NYC. Also, Washington D.C., ESL, I’m coming for you – Eighteenth Street Lounge, Saturday December 1st.
