Nick Warren continues to be so respected because he knows how to truly work a crowd, delivering again and again, yet taking them somewhere they’ve never been before. That's what comes with vision and, just as importantly in Warren’s case, experience.
You can tell when Nick Warren's on the decks. The music emanating from the DJ booth is that perfect club mix of driving percussion and soaring musicality, bursting out of the speakers, soaking everyone in melody, drenching them in sound. Warren's impressive career has seen him release the very first "Back to Mine" album, a staggering eight albums for "Global Underground", and one for "Renaissance" and "Cream". He is also in control of A&R for record label Hope Recordings, as well as being a member of the highly acclaimed duo Way Out West. Starting as tour DJ with Massive Attack, moving onto a residency at super club Cream and playing at every self-respecting club on the planet, has led him to this natural position as one of the world's most respected DJs.
All this history has been eclipsed by Nick’s present: Nick continues to DJ every weekend all over the globe, whilst also maintaining Hope Recording's high quality output in his role as head of A&R. Nick’s DJ career spans two decades and is driven by a continual desire to evolve and change while searching out the new cutting edge producers from all corners of the world, in many cases long before they become established. This is no better represented than in the continuing bi-monthly radio show "Soundgarden" on Friskyradio which attracts over 150,000 unique tune-ins to each airing and his Delta FM show in Argentina. He is also a regular contributor for John Digweed’s "Transitions" show.
In 2011, Nick released the highly acclaimed "Balance 018", one of the highest selling in the series, receiving high praise from fans and media alike. Plus, the incredible single "Buenos Aires" became the 100th release on his beloved label, Hope Recordings in May. 2012 looks like another great year for Nick, with various solo releases planned and he is heading into the studio with Jody Wisternoff to work on the new Way Out West album.
