Biography

Nicolas Scaravilli was born to an Italian family in Brussels in 1974. It was clear from an early age he was heading straight for a life in music.

Nico’s formative years were spent learning to spin hip-hop and studying music theory & classic piano. After he was expelled from music college in 1991, he decided to set up his own home studio inspired mainly by the London breakbeat scene. At 19 he met Francis Shabard (DJ Murvin Jay) who introduced him to house music and together they secured DJ residencies at Club XXX, the first house club night in Brussels at the legendary Theatre of Vaudeville.

Nico spent four years as assistant engineer at Let’s Go Studios, where he met his DJ partner and close friend Vito ‘Junior Jack’ Lucente. In 1994, Nico set up his own label DTM Recordz and was promptly offered a label deal by R&S Records. At the same time Nico was releasing house records through UK label Drop Dead Discs. It was Nico’s house remix of Boom on Drop Dead that caught Boy George’s eye, and remixes for Junior Vasquez and Topazz followed.

PIAS were not long in offering Nico a label deal for his techno productions. He accepted the offer and now records for his label Deluxe Recordings under the moniker Sharpside. Their second release Critical Freaks quickly gained support on the scene with the likes of Dave Angel, Claude Young, Pete Tong, Carl Cox and Judge Jules caning the record. With Danny Tenaglia supporting track Belgian Resistance, Luke Slater using the track Telsco Drop on his album and Space Cruising getting signed to Dave Angel’s label, Nico’s techno productions were going from strength to strength.
