Wonderwheel Recordings is pleased to present Back In The Days, the first taste of the brand new Nickodemus album coming in 2014. Touring and collaborating with musicians all over the world since 1996, Nickodemus is continuing his impressive streak. Recently when Joyce Muniz introduced Nickodemus to NY hip-hop artist Baby Bam (The Jungle Brothers) at a festival in Sicily, the two had more in common then they could have ever imagined. One of Nickodemus’ biggest musical influences has been the Native Tongue Movement of the ’90s, so they already spoke the same language and knew they had to work together. The Real Live Show, the barrier-breaking duo of Stimulus and Malik Work, have collaborated on several past songs with Nickodemus including “Give the Drummer Some,” “Sun Children,” “Gimme the Music,” “Moon People,” and more.
”Back In The Days" is the meeting of these minds, all quick to the concept of going back to their NYC roots. BAM takes listeners to the ’80s while Stimulus and Malik Work aim for the ’90s. The song hits hard with a hip-hop (read: electro-funk) groove meets acid house style and tempo. Nickodemus goes solo on "The 303 Scenario" which does what it says on the tin, developing into a thick but fun acid track. Both of these songs and the alternate Hip House version of “Back In The Days” would work over any dancehall.
This is the call to arms of Wonderwheel Recordings and Nickodemus - “You know how we used to do it Back in the Days!" - sure to resonate with DJs and dancers anywhere with a fond past, a pleasant present, and an excitement about the future.
