For years, Brooklyn-based Nickodemus has been known for throwing parties where he totes instruments and musicians in from across the world; this album, compiled and mixed by Nicko, reflects his reputation. The obligatory (and damned good) Latin influence is here in the Nicko and Osiris-remixed “Tanguedia 3” from tango legend Astor Piazzollo, but the album ranges farther with “Balkan Hot Step” from N.O.H.A. (now in a Nike ad) and “All is One” by The Spy from Cairo. Nick represents NYC as well with his own deep “Cleopatra‘s Bonus Beats.”
