About NICKODEMUS:
Brooklyn-based global electronica artist Nickodemus honed his skill as resident DJ for Giant Step-produced (NYC) functions from 1995-1999 where he provided sets alongside the likes of Gil Scott Heron, Jazzmattazz, The Pharcyde, Mos Def & Kweli, KRS-One, Thievery Corporation, Groove Collective, Pucho & the Latin Soul Brothers, and Femi Kuti. In 1998, Nickodemus became resident DJ and producer for Turntables On The Hudson, one of the first late night outdoor events in New York, which went on to become an adventurous, free-spirited community & movement known for its eclectic blend of Hip-Hop, Funk, House and Soul played back to back with Latin, African, and Eastern European sounds.

In 2009 he released the Sun People album on Thievery Corporation’s ESL Music, which mixed positive vibes with collaborators hailing from destinations including Guinea, Colombia, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Romania, India, Turkey, United Kingdom and New York City.

His 2007 track “Mi Swing es Tropical” was not only a Worldwide club anthem but was also featured in the iTunes + iPod adverts of the that Summer. Just as notable, he’s weighed in heavy with remixes for Billy Holiday, Nina Simone, Sultan Kahn, Omar Faruk Tekliebek, Balkan Beat Box, The Pimps of Joytime & many more.

About DOS SANTOS ANTI-BEAT ORQUESTA:
Dos Santos: Anti-Beat Orquesta rocks the sounds of popular pan-Latin American dance genres—from cumbia to salsa. Their gritty, grassroots approach captures the “golden age” of streamlined tight-knit ensembles that shook sweatbox dance floors with raw and fierce energy throughout Latin America in the 1970s and 80s—honest dance music with no frills and no fear, anchored by piercing guitars, garage organs, and spirited percussion.

The group’s five members (Peter Vale, Alex Chavez, Daniel Villarreal-Carrillo, Jaime Garza, Nathan Karagianis) have their own storied careers in a diversity of styles—including jazz, R&B/soul, traditional Mexican folk, punk, cumbia, salsa, and electronica—in addition to a history of critical involvement in arts education and social justice organizing. Their visceral sound draws from this sonic, cultural, and political well of influence, and is guaranteed to make you move.

After making their debut in May of 2013, Dos Santos has been steadily making the rounds at Chicago’s premiere live music venues and festivals. They have made it their goal to provide a much-needed live artistic voice to audiences across the city, expanding the listenership, appeal, and general conversation about Latin@ music throughout Chicagoland and beyond.
