BIOGRAPHYAnd so we bring you the next chapter of the Nicholson saga, 'ART'. From his humble beginnings as a homeless teenager living in the shop doorways of west end London, the past 25 years have taken Carl Nicholson on a journey that can only be described as the story of a true underdog.
From pulling himself from the slums, Carl learnt his craft from the undisputed king of dance, the late, great Tony de Vit, and then went on, armed with Tony's Trade record bag, to bag himself a residency as the worlds No 2 club Fabric, play huge UK festivals such as Glastonbury & Bull Dog Bash, and across the world for Soundscape (NZ) & Tranceport (ARG) plus many more.
That was on top of headlining the main rooms of MOS, Brixton Academy, Matrix and Code to name only a handful, being billed alongside greats such as Chemical Brothers, Fatboy Slim, Frankie Knuckles and Farley 'Jackmaster' Funk to more modern day stars such as Paul Van Dyk, Lisa Lashes & Fergie.
From there Carl took over the world of UK Hard Trance in the mid 2000's, clocking up huge releases on the hierarchy of harder edged sounds including Nukleuz & Tidy Trax, earning himself a Silver BPI award for 'Times like These' that was featured on the ever popular 'Extreme Euphoria' series, and signing to over 40 other compilations over the next decade, also not forgetting clocking up numerous Radio 1 plays including one by Kutski debuting his remix of the Tony de Vit classic, 'The Dawn'.
Since 2013 Carl has been concentrating his efforts on his first and foremost love, Trance music. In this time he has notched up numerous releases on some of Trance's most prolific underground labels such as Perfecto Fluoro, Universal Nation, Pharmacy, Discover Dark & Rise and remixed some of the biggest Trance artists in history including Binary Finary & Marmion.
His tracks are revered worldwide with staunch support from the likes of Paul Van Dyk, Jordan Suckley, Alex M.O.R.P.H and Sean Tyas to name just a few.
And 2017 just seems to be going from strength to strength with the imminent release of his new album 'ART', and interest from all corners of the globe, the future indeed has never looked brighter!
