Meeting a local Moroccan DJ, Omar Moro brought up his first shift in style and Nick was introduced to minimal and techno. Soon after this; globally recognised and acclaimed producer John Aquaviva took Nick’s attention and he became locked into techno and in particular the work of definitive recordings bringing him to idolise and admire producers such as Greg Kobe, Oliver Giaccomotto, Phunk Investigation, Adam Beyer. Not quite knowing at this time that in 5 years’ time; John Aquaviva and Greg Kobe would be supporting and helping him with his own Sounds.
Moving quickly and ferociously deeper and deeper into the circuitry of underground dancemusic Nick hurled through the genres familiarising himself will the globalsound of dance music. He became a profound lover of Progressive. Another two artists Nick highly champions is John Digweed and Nick Muir; founders of Bedrock Records. His style was now gearing towards playing out all forms of house music. But his style just cannot be pigeon holed or relegated to one style or pinned down. He can go from upfront vocal house into filthy electrohouse in the drop of a hat, combining genres effortlessly and reading crowds like open books. An energy behind the decks that is as unique as his productions. Personally though Nick favours tough music, tech house, techno, progressive,it has to be big, it has to be filthy and move crowds in such a unique and original way that is leagues ahead of the norm.
Nicks journey officially started as a DJ at The biggest clubs in London. His first gig was at super club Heaven. Other world known artists also began their career at this huge club, two such artists were John Digweed and Paul Oakenfold whom both held residencies there for a period of time.
