With Turntables On The Hudson six years strong, pioneering Brooklynite Nickodemus drops his first solo effort. Comprising over a decade of international influence-touching the Balkans, Africa, Latin America, Arabia, Jamaica, and more-Endangered Species is a soulful collection of bouncing vocals and melodies embedded in serious grooves. Malik from Real Live Show, Radio Mundial‘s Jean Shepherd and Si*Se‘s Carol C add verbal dynamite over a cornucopia of global instrumentation that could only call NYC home. The clear and present winner is the clarinet/melodica-driven “Crazy Stranger,” as watery and flowing as the riverside associated with Nick‘s name.
