For Defaults next instalment of freestyle sessions @Konflict-radio.com
he is going to be showcasing NICKYNUTZ (Animal Breaks).
Be sure to join Default and Nicky in the chatroom for this 1.
This guy has been collecting records since he was 9 years old (1983), and his love for music really does show in each and every one of his tracks! some even refer to Nicky as the “Frank Zappa of jungle” and this i can believe.
By 1992 Nicky was out and about dj’ing at private parties/birthdays around Liege,Belgium.But it wasn’t until 1999 that Nicky got up in front of a public audience in Montreal Canada for the 1st time (he used to live there from 1999 to 2001).
In 2001 Nicky was playing alongside dj Q-Bert and Sean Paul at the Labour day “Powerjam” event in Montreal Canada.
2003 seen Nicky co-organize Chopstick Dubplate (Jacky Murda & Rcola) 1st european tour with their very 1st european date @ Phoenix Club (R.I.P.), Liège, Belgium.
2005 seen Nicky open the show @ The Ancienne Belgique in Brussels for both Asian Dub Foundation (UK) and M.I.A. (UK) & the birth of Nicky’s label “Animal Breaks” , releasing two 4-Trackers 12″ (“F.A.T. Jungle EP” and “Junglist Specials EP”) distributed by JungleX.ca
