Nicky Blackmarket is one of the pioneers of Jungle / Drum and Bass music. The always friendly and smiling legend started DJing in the early 80´s when he was 14. From Acid House to Breakbeats to Jungle to Drum and Bass it was a long way that shaped his skills in selection and mixing. He was the owner of the well known Drum and Bass record shop: Blackmarket Record Store in Soho and has sporadically produced tunes. He is playing up to 5 gigs a week and has just revived his label “Kartoons” that stopped in 2000.
The family man with five children and a very busy DJ schedule has not too much time. We are very happy that we got the chance to talk with him about Drum and Bass in general and the art of DJing after his four hours set in Braunschweig Germany.

He produced all this tracks as specials for the Fabriclive CD 84 (released 20.11.2015), but there was no chance to get the solo tracks. Now he is giving them away for free. He is only asking for your email address to build up a Dub Phizix mailing list (“…3 or 4 times a year I’ll send you an email with news about what tunes I’ve got coming out, where I’m playing and anything else I think you might be interested in…”). Feel free to unsubscribe later on, or also send him some money so he can buy some nice things for the work that he has done properly.
