TURNTABLES ON THE HUDSON

Pledge Drive Special

We will be focusing on TOTH releases and artists too many to name. World Music for the next genreation featuring Originals, Remixes, and Collaborations from across the globe.

"TEN YEARS FLOATING DOWN THE HUDSON... For the tens of thousands of people that have journeyed to piers, boats and clubs during that time—not to mention the global audience they have acquired—a real transformation occurs. Whatever you bring inside is, during the course of hours of an organic, electronic hypnosis, turned into something shared by everyone around you. This is why the party has lasted, will last much longer: it is a community free of judgments and restrictions. With so many influences behind Turntables on the Hudson, it’s easy to see why everyone feels at home. In a place where any music that moves you is not only welcomed but encouraged, there’s room for everyone. That’s part of the magic—that’s the heart of the magic. It is political in that no one is excluded; it is social in that lasting bonds are constantly formed..."

Since 1998, Turntables on the Hudson consists primarily of DJs Nickodemus & Mariano + percussionist Nappy G. Alongside a big family of musicians and DJs, special outdoor/ indoor venues & party people ready to move, they have brought the vibe all over NYC and dancefloors across the U.S., Asia, Europe, Australia and Latin America. Building a loyal following one dancer at a time, they have made a commitment to moving people's bodies while at the same time, opening their minds and exposing them to artists & sounds from every part of the World. The parties are are every Friday in the Spring & Summer, and on a monthly basis in the Fall & Winter. Please check back for our various locations throughout the city and our tour schedule.

The Party

When Nickodemus and Mariano started the Turntables on the Hudson (TOTH) parties in 1998 it was one of the first late night outdoor events in NYC. With the addition of Groove Collective founding member Nappy G on percussion, the party became an adventurous, young, free-spirited community known for its eclectic musical blend.

In the past ten years TOTH took their beats from parking garages, lofts & boats to residencies at renowned NY clubs and venues like The Frying Pan, Opaline, Shelter, The Brooklyn Loft, Cielo, Element, Hiro Ballroom, SOB's and Spiegelworld. After ten years, the TOTH parties are now taking place Fridays at the Water Taxi Beach in Long Island City overlooking Manhattan and the East River.

The heavy percussive element has been highlighted with West African percussion ensembles, live samba batucada bands and New Orleans & Eastern Brass bands.
