Enjoy 80 minutes of joyful sounds, Soul gems and rarities from around the globe, compiled for us by Nick the Record. Nick has been involved in the scene for the past 25 years, present through UK club culture’s formative scenes: Hip Hop Jams of the Eighties, into Rare Groove, the Summer of Love, 90s underground parties, before embarking on a love affair with Japan, which turned into a 20 year residency.
Part of the grassroots DIY scene in Japan, he formed ‘Lifeforce’ a legendary party which matched elements of the UK underground with sonic influences from around the globe. In more recent years Nick has been sharing his music closer to home, with a trademark focus on quality of sound which forms the core ethos of his party ‘Tangent’ (ran with John Gomez), labels Natural House & Record Mission, alongside revered vinyl-trading platform DJ Friendly Records. He’s also renowned for an enviably extensive record collection of rare gems, so thanks to Nick for sharing some with us in this mix!
