Nick is a one-man show and takes full advantage of the art of sampling.

If I can't play it, I sample it. I compose all styles from mild to wild — all genres. I have followed the electronic music scene for as long as I can remember. I understand this music and love it. I do my utmost best to follow the trends and changes — these days it's out of control. Electronic music back home in the UK is like religion. Here in the States, it's still growing and will explode one day soon.
