Nickodemus “Steely Dan Mixtape” (1997)
Nickodemus: “At the time, I was not much of a Steely Dan fan… I only knew some hits & liked the songs sampled by De La Soul & Lord Tariq / Peter Gunz. However, I had a whole new appreciation for the brilliant meticulous writers & producers after I had a chance to really dig into the music! I was asked to take anything I wanted from their LP’s & mix them up on 2 turntables & a sampler for an editor to cut a Steely Dan Documentary to it.
The editor asked specifically to mix it up with originals, samples, scratches & effects. So, I got to it with an 2 turntables & an ASR-10 sampler & recorded straight to cassette. For all you Steely Dan fans out there, please help with the track ID’s, this was done in my bedroom around 1997 & I have no idea where these records are hiding in the crates anymore. Enjoy!”
