Nicky Blackmarket is, without doubt, a bit of a London institution. Having founded Soho’s legendary BM Records, and spent years developing the store into one of the capital’s foremost independent record shops, let alone keeping up a dj career that’s seen him travel the world pushing the sound of modern drum n’ bass to a global audience – the man lives and breaths underground London music.
This New Years Eve he guests at the Urban Nerds X ATG NYE warehouse party alongside other bass-led heavyweights Redlight, Toddla T, Sukh Knight, P Money, plus a full 90 minute set from DMZ’s master dubstepper Mala.
Ahead of the show, he’s recorded a suitably epic mix of classic jungle and drum n’ bass, recorded solely on vinyl and consisting of classics and classics only. Each one of these is a bona fide killer, taking it back to the mid-nineties with groundbreaking work from Krust & Roni Size’s Gang Related & Mask aliases and working up to more recent fare from the likes of Twisted Individual.
