- 5:00 PM – 6:00 PM
- Main Stage
Join in on the live creation and remixing of a song with DJ Nickodemus (Turntables on the Hudson, Wonderwheel Recordings) world renowned DJ, producer, musician, label owner, event promoter and global traveller together with Dubspot and Pleasuremaker (Afrolicious).
Please submit your own small sound snippet/sample (under 4 seconds please) to firstname.lastname@example.org or simply bring your voice or an instrument to be sampled live.
From his early days DJing at Giant Step parties, to his current party Turntables on the Hudson, (over 11 years strong), Nickodemus always keeps a positive and strong element of funky dance grooves that intersect the new and the old, the urban and the countryside! His sound defies conventional genres as it traverses the globe and then percolates out of his native hometown, Brooklyn, NYC! Nickodemus has two albums and remix albums called “Engangered Species” and “Sun People” as well as “7 Turntables” on the Hudson compilations to date. His highlight songs, which can be found on hundreds of compilations and several movies and TV commercials, include “Cleopatra in New York," “Mariposa,” “Funky in the Middle,” and “Mi Swing es Tropical.” Remixes range from Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Thievery Corporation, Bebel Gilberto, to Sultan Khan and soon to this Noise Pop Culture Club, a special live song created with your help!
Pleasuremaker (Afrolicious) is a San Francisco based DJ/producer/DIY party promoter who runs Afrolicious at the Elbow Room Thursdays. He will be assisting Nickodemus on stage in the process of making music, creating events and overall comedy.
