Nicky Night Time
Facebook / Soundcloud / Twitter / Instagram In a space of 12 months Nicky Night Time has cemented his spot as king of of the Australian house music scene, with a slew of sure fire orginals and red hot remixes including debut single ‘Everybody Together’ demolishing dancefloors round the globe.
Channeling classic NYC piano house through an Ibizan summer, ‘Everybody Together’ topped the Australian ARIA charts for five weeks running and scored an ARIA Award nomination for Best Dance Release along the way. The love rolled in from overseas too, with heavyweight DJs inc. Aeroplane, The Magician and Digitalism plus BBC radio taste-makers Annie Mac and Rob Da Bank supporting from all corners of the net. This most recent single ‘Gonna Get Better’ ft Nat Dunn preformed just as impressively sitting proud at the top of the ARIA Club chart for 3 weeks and garnering strong radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Danny Howard, and BBC 6 Music’s Nemone as well as being nominated for best track in Australia’s In The Mix Dance Music Awards.
Of course, those who know Nicky (Nicholas Routledge on his passport) wouldn’t be too surprised. The producer/singer/guitarist’s golden touch has shone bright through his various incarnations. Since 2002, he’s fronted Sydney digital pop auteurs Van She, who cracked the ARIA Top 10 with their debut record and toured alongside indie royalty like the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Bloc Party and Phoenix. Under the Van She Tech alter ego he’s spun gold with genre-defining remixes of Empire Of The Sun, Tiga, Feist, The Presets and Daft Punk. Notably, their rewiring of Utah Saints’ club weapon ‘Something Good’ crashed the UK top 10 in 2008, revitalising the classic all over again.
And yet, Nicky Night Time remains his focus first and foremost, whether it’s partying up in the clubs or bunkering down in the studio. Over the last few months, he’s dropped a handful of high-profile remixes, including re-rubs of Shadow Child and Doorlys’ aptly-titled ‘Piano Weapon’, Tiga’s techy triumph ‘Bugatti”, Iggy Azalea’s infectious ‘Trouble, Dom Dolla & Go Freek’s ‘Define’, Gorgon City’s monster hit ‘Go All Night’ and even producing and co-writing Kita Alexander’s Triple J smash ‘My Own Way'.
They’ve been the perfect primer for Nicky’s forthcoming offering entitled Flowers, again featuring Nat Dunn, an infectious organ laden cut, which is just as likely to be heard on the radio as it is in the clubs.
Blending his potent writing talent, production bravado and boundless passion for the genre, the new material guarantees he’ll be one of house music’s hottest properties, today and tommorow.
