About Turntables on the Hudson

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 15 years TOTH took their events from parking garages, lofts & boats to residencies at renowned NY clubs and venues such as Le Bain, Cielo, La Marina, The Guggenheim, the American Museum of Natural History, Central Park Summer Stage & many more. On the City to City River to River series, the party currently has residencies on the Nile (Cairo), las Ramblas (Barcelona) & the Caribbean (Playa del Carmen).

TOTH's music policy has always been maximum funk and absolute fun. One can easily hear home-born genres like hip-hop, funk, house and soul played back to back with Latin, Afrobeat and Eastern European gypsy sounds. In addition to hosting live guests in the past including Brazilian Girls, Antibalas, Tortured Soul, Los Amigos Invisibles, The Pimps of Joytime, Quantic y su Combo & countless more. In addition to the DJ, a heavy percussive element has been highlighted with West African percussion ensembles, live samba batucada bands and New Orleans & Eastern Brass bands. Top-shelf DJs that joined them on deck over the past decade including Bonobo, Louie Vega, Christian Prommer, Rich Medina, Mr. Scruff, Rainer Truby, Peter Kruder, Quantic and Mark Rae, among hundreds of others. 

Turntables on the Hudson has 10 compilations of music reflecting the sound of the party & it's guests over the years!  Artists such as Zeb, Nickodemus, The Spy from Cairo, Nappy G, Quantic, Candela Allstars, Raeo, Sabo, Jay Rogriguez and Groove Collective are frequent contributors to the TOTH sound.
