The Fleet Foxes are hot right now, coming off their killer release “Helplessness Blues” on May 3rd, so I figured I would use Remix Wednesday to mention them. This track has a very house feel, but still manages to capture Robin Pecknold’s dreamy voice and make it into something upbeat. Probably a great track to drive to, but it’ll do for a Wednesday pick me up.

Owning a label and doing mixes for Thievery Corporation
are just a handful of the things Brooklyn based DJ, Nickodemus, has his scratchin’ fingers on these days.
He’s been involved in the New York dance scene as a DJ for about ten years now, utilizing tons of genres in his music including house, hip-hop, jazz, funk and dub. He has two albums right now including Sun People and Endangered Species that were both released on his label, Wonderwheel Recordings. These two tracks below give you a flavor of how widespread his music is. The first is kind of house-esque with a real beat you can dance too. The second is a downtempo trip-hop groove. Both are very tasty.
