For The Love Of It: Nico

The DJ series continues...

CLASH and Pioneer DJ continue our ‘For The Love Of It’ series documenting our favourite homegrown spinners.

Thus far we’ve had an extensive and exciting range of talent share their stories and curate guest mixes: Capital Dance broadcaster and DJ Jess Bays, techno specialist and label head Charlie Tee, Subtle Radio resident Scar Duggy and 2020 Oram Award Winner NikNak.

The multifaceted Nico is next up, spinning an eclectic fusion of genres in the studio, tapping into the crate-digging flair of his ‘Locked N Loaded’ mixes.

His North London upbringing exposed him to a wide range of scenes and subcultures within music, reflected in innovative mixes which house the sounds of hip-hop, afrobeat and RnB, alongside garage and grime. Nico is currently a resident on Run The Riddim, where he disseminates bangers from the UK underground scene to the masses.

From performing in Croatia at Outlook Festival and We Out Here Festival with TROPICO, to supporting acts such as AJ Tracey and Big Zuu, DJ NICO’s high-octane mixes are a carefully-cultivated incubator for risers across the country.

We’re thrilled to have Nico share the formative chapters of his DJ career and perform a comprehensive mix on the all-in-one XDJ-RX3 DJ system from Pioneer DJ, filmed at the Clash studio.

Tune in now…
