I’m a British based solo singer/songwriter with songs based around the piano and building layers of sound using a variety of instruments, both real and synthesised. Lyrics are hugely important to me and I love the poetry of Tom Waits, Patti Smith and British Band Elbow.

FreQ Nasty has been a staple name in big room high-energy electronic dance music environments for over a decade, and his new releases have expanded his legendary innovations in EDM. With origins forged in four separate nations (Fiji, New Zealand, the UK, and the West Coast of America), FreQ Nasty has leveraged his multicultural background to straddle and often buck the trends in electronic music culture. An innovator in the UK’s ‘Nu-Skool Breaks’ Movement in the early 2000’s, and an early importer of Dubstep to the US in 2006, his current productions range from peaktime bass heavy gut crunchers to deep and melodic dubwise vibes. After his early successes leading to a cover story in UK EDM bible ‘DJ Magazine’, he has collaborated with the likes of Bassnectar, Santigold & Switch and Marty Party, and done official remixes/production for artists including hiphop legend KRS1, Professor Green, Kelis, and Fatboy Slim. Today FreQ Nasty continues to push the boundaries of the dancefloor forward in his music production, as evidenced his latest release on FreQ Nasty Recordings, “#1 SKANKA EP” which blends dancehall, indie hiphop, drumstep and 808 trap. Look for him at festivals in the US, UK and Australia where he has shared stages with Prodigy, Chemical Brothers, Beats Antique, and Tipper among others, as well as performing with his live band “Dub Kirtan AllStars” and giving his lecture series “The Yoga of Bass” with partner Claire Thompson.

LA Sync Mission – Continued……

May 13, 2013 News No Comments

To connect solely yourself with the industry in this way would simply take an unthinkable amount of personal time and resources to make happen. The Bpi, UKTI and MPA come together to deliver a fab few days of activities. The potential for trade (at the time of writing) is seriously unrivalled by others offering similar introductions. The only other organisation we would recommend (at this moment) is NARIP and their Music Supervisor sessions http://www.narip.com.

The panels are packed with the industry’s leading figures sharing a no-nonsense insight into how things work.
