Turntables on the Hudson: 10 Year Anniversary 2010 via Wonderwheel
a note about this track

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.

Up In The Air- Music from the Motion Picture 2009 via Rhino
a note about this track

Charles Atlas is an instrumental duo (often expanding into a trio or quartet) who utilize effected guitar, piano, synthesizer, melodica, trumpet, drum loops, samples, and other instrumentation to paint expansive musical pastures on the crowded walls of the urban centers they and their audiences call home. In this sense Charles Atlas is akin to a large, green city park, the difference being that whereas the land for, say, Central Park was set aside long ago, Charles Atlas must forge the aural and (via synaesthesia if not musical anesthesia) visual space it seeks to fill.
