I can't tell you how excited I am that James Bobin is attached to adapt and direct The Punch Escrow for the screen. Can we talk for a sec? Flight of the Conchords is my favorite HBO show of all time. If anyone needs me, I'll be on the floor. I love you Lionsgate, Geek & Sundry, and Inkshares. I would marry all of you, but I think that's illegal plus my wife might get jealous. ❤️ #thepunchescrowmovie
Getting to work with Nickodemus was a dream come true. Nico is a gem of a human being. Just filled with love for the world and its people. His warmth and happiness always permeates the music he makes, and I'm incredibly happy and grateful for his friendship. Check out this wonderful package of tunes!
This just in! We've dropped a special Wonderworld double 7" package just in time for summer BBQs that include 4 favorite Nickodemus originals and mixes from pas...t years...."Los Tarantos", Yukicito's remix of "Mirage", Tal M. Klein's remix of "N'Dini" and the Ska Version of Nickodemus & Brian Jay's "Wanted Man".

See you there!
Joel Byram, The Punch Escrow's protagonist, loves 80's new wave. Which a really weird thing to love in 2147. It's like being really into baroque music now, whic...h if you are, nobody's judging. Still, 80's new wave plays a big part in The Punch Escrow, and so, we've put together Joel's favorite playlist - the soundtrack of The Punch Escrow. Enjoy!
I love this mid 90's trip hop throwback remix I did for Great American Canyon Band. I hope you love it too!
(You can download it and a few other songs on their *free* Westward EP)
Project Fear is out now! You can grab my new track Thingy Blah Blah 303 as well as new heat from paper boys Anthony Mansfield, Chris Massey, DJ Rocca, Ben Arnold, Ralph Myerz, SofaTalk, Nutritious, De Fantastiske To, and more. Very proud to be among such great company.
You want new music? You got it. This heapin' pile of acid and breaks is coming soon on Paper Recordings, but you can hear it now because internet! But gods do I ever hate soundcloud. That's not your problem though. No, you just need to click play and turn it up. Like way up. No, higher. 11? Perfect.
Thanks to Bagio for the fantastic choreography for my new track "No Mask? No Mask!" - a throw back to the old Trancenden trip hop days. You can grab this track on my new Rubs & Remixes v4 compilation EP which features a bunch of other good tunes as well, including remixes from Aniligital favorites Irian Jaya and Skizzo Franick. Check it out here: http://www.junodownload.com/…/tal-m-klein-rubs-…/3162695-02/
Finally! This remix EP was supposed to come out shortly after Exhaustasaurus, but fate had other ideas. So, nearly two years later, here are some fantastic remixes of the tracks from Exhaustasaurus by the likes of Tad Wily, Del Gazeebo, Mr Bird, as well as Aniligital staples Irian Jaya (Chris Renwick & Doug Sam-Ra), and Skizzo Franick (Philipp Peltz) who pulled double duty with TWO remixes. Last but not least, this EP includes my previously unreleased track "No Mask? No Mask!" which is a throwback to my old Trancenden days with Dave Marino. Enjoy!
Thanks to Tad Wily, I just learned that some AMAZING remixes from Exhaustasarus will be soon available on Juno Download and other fine digital music purveyors!! (Shout to Super Ugly for the cover portrait)
