I first discovered Nickodemus when i was a student at NYU in 2003. I had just started collecting vinyl and i used to go to a store in the
east village called Dance Tracks. I would keep coming across his vinyls and at the time and noticed that his tunes were so different. It took me some time to digest his music as I had no exposure to this sound, but soon after few months I began to understand it and appreciate it. Now when I listen to his catalog, I am blown away and personally think he is a living legend. His productions are like a lesson on how an electronic music producer can make such organic music. You can tell how much effort has gone into recording musicians in each tracks. He uses only few samples from sample libraries . The tunes feel like a band is playing them out live and for me that is the highest standard possible. If any producer is able to get the punch of electronic music and combine that with flawless musicianship, then I will have most respect for them.
