Nickodemus Sun People
- Words: Patrick Sisson
- Label: ESL
- XLR8R Rating: 6/10
This Turntables on the Hudson co-founder has proven abilities when it comes to mixing polyglot grooves into something inviting and original that doesn’t trip itself up with too many clichés. Yet with Sun People, Nickodemus fails to drop any brilliant beats, instead creating a solid but by no means exemplary album. But his grooves work like cold beer in the sunshine, a simple pleasure that could become undeniable over time. Tracks like the sauntering “Calle Sol” or “weRISEweFALLweRISE,” featuring winding clarinets from the New York Gypsy Allstars, are animated but never demand attention. This subtle album won’t automatically take a subconscious hold of sun-soaked partiers, but you could do much worse.
