Musically speaking, New York native Nickodemus, is probably as open-minded as it gets. Together with DJ sidekick, Mariano, the two have since gone on to form one of the city’s most enduring and creative weekly parties; Turntables On The Hudson, that has developed from strength to strength over the past seven years.
‘With Turntables, we started with this one idea: music with soul from across the board that would do nothing but make people wanna dance and party. Turntables would be a place where we could play what we want and we’ve maintained that tight connection ever since.’
Now in its eighth year, the club has become a mainstay on the New York horizon – Friday nights from April through to August where the parties run into the early hours, all aboard the rusty old boat they call the Frying Pan.
Equally, six volumes of the highly-collectable ‘Turntables On The Hudson’ mix CDs, a host of remixes - including the Thievery Corporation’s own ‘Supreme Illusion’ featured on the ‘ESL Remixed’ album released in 2006 and his own record label, Wonderwheel Recordings, have turned the future bright. Meanwhile, the debut Nickodemus album, ‘Endangered Species’, available from ESL Music, puts the whole story into perspective.
