Nickelle – DJ/Producer – Age 28 â London
Emerging as one of the star DJs of the underground house scene, Nickelle is slowly but surely cementing herself into the consciousness of âthose in the knowâ at the cutting edge of our movement. Move over boysâ.resistance is futile!!
As well as DJing at âtop drawerâ international clubs in Italy, Germany, the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Asia and of course the UK, Nickelle has been causing quite a stir as a production talent too. With around three years studio experience under her belt, her first success came in early 2005 with her track âDexterousâ which was listed in the top 10 tunes of Miami â05 in iDJ Magazine. She truly arrived as a producer with the release of her outstanding remix of De Lacyâs âHideawayâ on Slip n Slide in December 2005. Fresh out of the studio is a dazzling Nickelle and Nessim mix of Paganoâs âMarvellousâ which will be on limited promo shortly and with support from the likes of Wally Lopez, Slacker, Nic Fanciulli, etc, her music is beginning to make some serious waves.
As a DJ and indeed producer, Nickelle champions a sexy blend of twisted, percussive House with a techy edge. Expect to hear growling basslines, lively percussion, and solid, compressed beats, always with an element of dirty, jackinâ funk. Her style is very much individual, she doesnât follow any trends and nor does she aspire to be like anyone else.
âWe at iDJ have watched Nickelleâs career go from strength to strength and it’s refreshing to see that a talented young DJ like this can still break through.â (Russell Deeks, Editor, iDJ Magazine)
Nickelle was brought up in the Lake District in northern England and started mixing at the precocious age of 15, inspired by visits to clubs such as Vague in Leeds and the Arena in Middlesbrough. After playing at warehouse parties and various gigs, she headed down to Brighton one day with her record bag and a few changes of clothes and never made it back home. It was in Brighton that she really began to make a name for herself as work came flooding in from the Escape, the Zap, Cuba, The Sound Gallery, Mansion house and Q-Club in Worthing and she was given a residency at the Honey Club. Nickelle formed a two-year partnership with Richard Innocent, playing gigs like Outrageous at Ministry of Sound under the moniker of âThe Untouchablesâ. Concentrating on her solo career again, she went on to win an iDJ magazine DJing competition, which essentially brought her into the public domain. Shortly thereafter, she secured representation with her first manager. Her radio experience includes hosting a monthly show on Ministry of Sound Radio.
Nickelle has performed at clubs as varied and notorious as Club Class in Maidstone, Space in Bucharest, La Suite in Rome, Turnmills in London, Mix in Dubai, the official closing party of the Berlin Film Festival, Dolce Verde and Taotec in Tuscany, Drop in Hong Kong, Attica in Singapore and a 3-year, monthly residency at âChaletâ in Rome. Other recent appearances on home soil include the highly popular âSubliminal Sessionsâ at Heaven in London, Escape in Swansea, Ahead in Birmingham and other gigs such as Bar Rhumba, Faith, Alchemy, Ministry of Sound, the Cross and many, many more.
Forthcoming highlights will be a 6-date tour of China in July 2006 and the continuation of her residency âWorkâ at Turnmills (previous guests have included Futureshock, Lottie, Audiofly, Tony Thomas, Deepgroove and Coburn).
âWe are exceptionally proud to have such an exciting talent as Nickelle on board. She adds great credibility to our operation and we look forward to sharing in her continued successâ (Franco Risico, Jam Management)
