Nicky Night Time
Nicky Night Time came out strong in mid-2014 with his smash hit ‘Everybody Together’ and demolished dancefloors round the globe.
Channeling classic NYC piano house through an Ibizan summer, the track 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.
Current single ‘Gonna Get Better’ ft Nat Dunn is has already sat proud at the top of the ARIA Club chart for 3 weeks and has had big radio support from the likes of BBC Radio 1’s Pete Tong and Danny Howard and BBC 6 Music’s Nemone.
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 (with bandmate Michael Di Francesco), he’s spun gold with red-hot 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 under his latest moniker, including re-rubs of Shadow Child and Doorlys’ aptly-titled ‘Piano Weapon’, Tiga’s techy triumph ‘Bugatti”, Iggy Azalea’s infections ‘Trouble, and Gorgon City’s monster hit ‘Go All Night’.
They’re the perfect primer for more Night Time originals dropping in the near future. Blending his potent talent and boundless passion for the genre, the new material guarantees he’ll be one of house music’s hottest properties in 2015.
“I have been working on a lot of new material. House music has been a passion of mine for as long as I can remember so Nicky Night Time is here to stay”.
