Wonderwheel Recordings is happy to announce Nickodemus' 2005 debut album entitled Endangered Species for the first time as a full-length vinyl LP. Coming from the global hip hop and house backdrop of New York City and his Turntables on the Hudson parties, like a time capsule of 2 decades ago, Nickodemus captured some of the best artists in his immediate circle & travels. Artists include Jay Rodriguez and Jonathan Maron of the Groove Collective, Carol C of Si Se, Victor Axelrod of Antibalas, Jean Shepherd of Radio Mundial, Ethan White of Tortured Soul, Will Holland (aka Quantic), Polo of La Familia, Dionysos and Stimulus of The Real Live Show, Nappy G, Apani B & Andrea Monteiro.
Also included in this album pressing is a 7" of the two bonus songs that appeared in the 2006 ESL Music re-release, "Mi Swing es Tropical" with Quantic & the late great Hector "Tempo" Alomar On the A side & "Rhythm Love Reprise" featuring Victor Axelrod on the B-side.
In a dance music world in which most DJs happily slot themselves into a prefabricated niche and stay there, rarely challenging their fans' ears and expectations, New York-based Nickodemus is something of an anomaly. He grew up on hip-hop, Latin music, and Motown R&B, and when he hit the decks himself he quickly brought in elements of blues, funk, and Afro-beat as well. His very fine debut album finds him exploring all of his various influences and paying tribute to the sounds and artists that continue to inspire him in his native city.
