FREE Exclusive Nicky Blackmarket mix for Download

Ahead of his set at this year’s massive Urban Nerds x ATG NYE warehouse party, we’ve managed to grab a very rare exclusive mix from legendary drum & bass DJ and the pioneering founder of London’s BM Records, the master himself…Nicky Blackmarket!

Giving a 30 minute sneak preview of what’s to come at the warehouse, Nicky delved deep into his record collection (we’re loving the fact this was mixed on pure vinyl) and dug out classic D&B and jungle cuts from champions like Congo Natty, Zinc, Shy FX and Mampi Swift. This was recorded LIVE in London at Solarity's studio and it’s great to hear the crackle of dubs in a mix again!
In 1992, as the house scene moved towards breakbeat, Nicky created a separate department downstairs to cater for the sound that would eventually be called Drum and Bass. In the mid-nineties he moved into production, making his first record ‘Spam EP’ along with various remixes and releases on his label Gyroscope, with artists like Ray Keith. This exposure fuelled his DJ career and Nicky decided to put all his efforts into playing his music around the world. "First and foremost I am a DJ." As the jungle scene exploded Nicky formed his legendary partnership with the late Stevie Hyper D. These performances are still regarded as the standard by which all others are judged, and mp3s of those sets will probably be on the Internet forever!
