It’s been said that nice guys finish last. But in a game that favours moving crowds until the early morning, Nicholas Nice takes that as a compliment. The emerging Toronto favourite is feverishly establishing himself as an artist who eats, sleeps and breathes his craft. Equipped with his patented intricacy of custom-mapped controllers, advanced track selection, samples and original loops, Nick has plied his trade from such notorious international haunts as Croatia’s infamous Hula Hula Bar to a venerable catalogue of legendary hometown dance floors which include Toronto’s Guvernment, Footwork (now Coda), Sound Academy and Ryze establishments. Adding to that list numerous music festivals, one-off private events and after-hours.
Having played alongside the heaviest hitters in his industry – Nick has emerged as a versatile DJ bending the lines between techno and house music’s sub-genres. Emotion. Progression. Atmospheric, mind-controlling swing and Energy. Showcasing a distinguished style that elopes the trademarked melodies of tropical Ibiza house to the rolling, hard-charging bass-lines and sizzling percussion of Berlin techno, a Nicholas Nice set promises all of the above and then some. Putting the finishing touches on his new EP, Nick can currently be caught with emerging Toronto-based promoters, booking agency and management firm Sound Mind Presents as their resident DJ and Creative Lead.
