Brooklyn's own outernational deejay Nickodemus returns with his second solo album, Sun People! Inspired by sunny days and good people, the album mixes positive sonic vibes from all over the globe including Guinea, Colombia, Puerto Rico , Brazil, Romania, India, Turkey, United Kingdom and New York City! Real Live Show features on the uplifting hip-hop jam Sun Children while Quantic lends his unmistakable groove on the salsa ritmo of La Lluvia. Not to be outdone, Brazilian songstress Liliana Araujo features on the hot samba of Gira Do Sol while Mandingo vocalist Ismael Kouyate lends his Afro-beat groove to N'Dini. Packed with brilliant collaborations, Sun People is a pan-continental party not to be missed... at least that's what the press release says! We'd love to verify those facts so, if anyone's got a copy to send, we'd be able to hear it/play it/review it... (Djouls)

Some of the original Endangered Species cast returns for Sun People including Jay Rodriguez, Quantic, Hector "Tempo" Alomar & the Candela Allstars, Zeb, Nappy G & Real Live Show.

From being a regular DJ in the early days of Giant Step to running one of NYC's longest running parties, Turntables on the Hudson, Nickodemus has been a steady force on the music scene for over 12 years. He has traveled the globe as a DJ since the age of 18 and has been dropping musical productions of his own since 1999 with his cult classics "Cleopatra in New York" & "Mariposa" in 2001. His last album featured "Mi Swing es Tropical" which was not only a worldwide club anthem but was also featured in the iTunes + iPod adverts for the summer of 2007. He's weighed in heavy with remixes for Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Thievery Corporation, Sultan Kahn, Omar Faruk Tekliebek, Balkan Beat Box, The Pimps of Joytime & many more. Like his live DJ sets, with Sun People, get ready to go on a musical journey through the world of funky, organic, urban dance music all seen through the eyes of a New York native who consistently makes music without borders!
