(Pleasure Club | Superlux – UK)
Nick Gynn has been a part of the London scene for over a decade, having moved to East London from his home county of Devon. His passion for sound was cultivated at an early age; sneaking into clubs and raves around the South West was the first indicator, and shortly afterwards Nick had his first set of decks, at the age of seventeen. The move to London brought him closer to the underground scene where he frequently attended nights at legendary clubs The End, fabric, Tea Bar and Public Life alongside the growing warehouse scene of the time around East and North London. Having watched his area transform, the musical landscape around the city has changed wildly too. Nick’s taste is wide-ranging, and he has built up an extensive cross-format library throughout the years. Taking listeners and dancers through from house, garage, electro, techno and breaks to rare disco, afrobeat and Balearic, he is not afraid to draw on more left field and spacey,ravey sounds along the way.
He lists his extremely varied influences as being everyone from masters like Juan Atkins, Larry Heard and Ricardo Villalobos to Craig Richards, Francesco Del Garda and some classic Garage artists like Groove Chronicles and Mystic Matt & Anthill Mob. A regular at festivals from Glastonbury to Gottwood and clubs from London to Ibiza, N GYNN has picked up acclaim more recently for his time in the recording studio, having just brought out the first release on Bobby’s Pleasure Club Records which has received stellar reviews already.
