Who are you?
Nicky Cursio


What style of music do you play?
House/Tech House.

 

Where did it all begin?
Played at open decks every Monday at the Lounge to get a bit of recognition then gained my first residency at Inside-Out.

 

Who inspires you as a DJ?
Eric Prydz..


What’s the best event you’ve played at?
My best event I've played at outside of Escape would be my most memorable for myself which is 'jnk' when Micky Slim was due to headline but couldn't turn up, so I had to keep the floor bouncing from 2 til 5am.

 

What was your first record you bought?
Don't own much vinyl but my first was: Runaway (Armand Van Helden Rascal Remix) - Nuyorican Soul ft. India.

 

What's your favourite tune of all time?
At Night (Kid Creme Remix) - Shakedown

 

When the music stops, how do you like to chill out?
By being a menace!

 

What do you do outside of the dance music scene?
I'm doing a Mechanical Engineering BEng.


When you play is it a pre-planned set?
Never plan, just party!.

 

What advice would you give to up and coming DJs?
Get out there and get involved! There's only so much a bedroom DJ can learn until he/she gets out there and in front of a crowd.

 

Out of all the tunes you have, which one never fails?
My bootleg of Star 69 and Pacha on Acid.... Always rescues me when needed!.
