After 20 years behind the decks and 10 years making music with friends and family, Wonderwheel Recordings labelhead DJ Nickodemus presents Wonderworld: 10 Years of Painting Outside The Lines, a special musical retrospective and mix put together by Nickodemus himself reflecting the best of his own original material and remixes from his three albums Endangered Species, Sun People, and Moon People.The music is a perfect reflection of Nickodemus' globetrotting, culture-bending style...sunny Latin beats get mixed up with Dub, House, AfroBeat, Deeper Electronic sounds, and Funk.
The next volume of Wonderwheel's long running Turntables on the Hudson series, curated by Nickodemus, heads down to the Caribbean encompassing diverse music made for the dancefloor. TOTC touches on the culturally rich shores of Cuba, Puerto Rico, Haiti, Jamaica, Belize, Mexico, Colombia and the USA and beyond with Island inspired vibes. This double 7" taken with our favorite cuts from the compilation features tracks from DJ Jigoe, Captain Planet feat Chico Mann, Corrado Bucci, and Poirier. On the A side, Afro Cuban artist and recent US & UK Press Darling DJ Jigue gives us the stripped down, Cuban house stomper that is "RIVE", while on the B side Italian producer Corrado Bucci teams up with the classic Columbian group Los Corraleros de Majaguel for a brand new modern take on their Cumbia classic "La Cuidad De Eterna Primavera". On the C side, Captain Planet & Chico Mann's tropical AfroLatin dancefloor smash "Aguacero" finally sees vinyl release, while on the D side, Montreal producer Poirier delivers a jumping Haitian/Creole tune "Pale Mal" with Fwonte on vocals to round out the compilation.
