This exposure fuelled his DJ career and Nicky decided to put all his efforts into playing his music around the world.
“…first and foremost I am a DJ.”
As the jungle scene exploded Nicky formed his legendary partnership with the late Stevie Hyper D. These performances are still regarded as the standard by which all others are judged, and MP3s of those sets will probably be on the internet forever.
Blackmarket Records supported the scene as a focus for the community, an essential component in an world without the internet. Nicky started another label “Kartoonz” featuring the anthem “Two Degrees”, confirming his status as a central force in the scene.
Unlike many superstars, Nicky still works in his shop and is a promoter of fresh talent and ideas, unafraid to help new artists and organisers push the artform forward. His love of drum and bass keeps him from descending into the mindless repetition and lazy performances characteristic of many in the scene.
Nicky invites you to sample his philosophy at the shop in D’Arblay St, London, or at any of his shows around the world.
