In this episode, I am joined by the legend which is Nick Hussey.
Nick Hussey, a DJ from a very early age with a keen eye for the hustle! Nick’s Dj career started way back in his school days, selling mixtapes after already securing a residency at the local under 18s disco playing Electro, Soul and Street sounds...
After leaving school, Nick found himself engaged deep within Manchester’s Madchester music scene, in packed clubs such as The Hacienda and the legendary illegal Acid House after parties at The Kitchen in Manchester - Arguably the birthplace of UK House music.
The Kitchen a construction of two knocked through flats at the centre of a moody, dark, concrete jungle, derelict council estate on the outskirts of Manchester city centre.
Where the children of the night would head after the city’s clubs had closed their doors.
Nick developed a love of House music that led him down the path of songwriting, producing and remixing. He worked on tracks for acts such as Bowa (Different story) Ultracynic (Nothing lasts forever) Rhythm of Life (Touch me) and FPI Project (Rich in paradise).
The worldwide success of Nicks productions led to remixes in the ’90s for American artists Jodeci, Crystal Waters, Joi Cardwell and European acts such as The Charlatans, Corona (Rhythm of the night) and Livin joy (I’m a dreamer). After nine No.1’s in the dance charts and selling over 6 million records, Nick worked as a DJ playing Wednesday nights at Mambos & Eden in Ibiza.
Further DJing gigs continued around the world from Moscow to Mauritius, Amsterdam to Vancouver, New York to Naples. More recently Nick has been the resident Dj playing to 5000 a night at the vast Zero Gravity Beach & Night club in Dubai, The Plaza Beach & Awqa Mist in Marbella.
While continuing to DJ around the globe, Nick signed to Defected & CR2 records as an artist and has had recent releases on Kaluki Music and Freakin 909.
Join me Derick Karma, as I chat with Nick about the start of the Acid House, Madchester and how one party at The Kitchen turned into many.
The hustle of pressing your own vinyl records and his adventures,
travailing down the M6 in a convoy of cars in search of the best night of his life at the legendary Shelleys Stoke-On-Trent.
