Biography

Young Moscow DJ Nick Nightingale aka Virus19xx took up playing music in his early childhood. When he was 6 years old he started attending music school. By the time he finished it, he got interested in electronic music. The first tracks he was really crazy about were the songs remixed by DJ Groove & the soundtrack to the game “Need For Speed 4: High Stakes”. Then he got to know about such musicians as Moby, FatBoy Slim, Dolphin, The Prodigy, The Chemical Brothers, The Crystal Method and others. At that time Nick realized that his soul would belong to break beat. Certainly, Nightingale didn’t limit himself by break only. He listened lots of hard electro styles such as techno, psy, D’n’B, hardcore & some of rap.

In 2004 Virus19xx did his first experiment with music, which resulted in some unusual bootlegs & “1st Pancake with Meat Mix” that contained hardest tracks from monsters of breakbeat. Its selection was very unusual and rare for that time, especially for Russia. By that time Virus19xx had became a resident of BBZ.ru – Russian BreakBeat Zone. His mixes were shown only for members of this community. In 2005 pure-breaks mix “Nu Soul Braxe” was released. It has become his identity card.

2007 started from great mix from BBZ Community. Many DJs from Russian BreakBeat Zone took part in this project. Nick Nightingale was one of them.

“I never chase for newness. First of all you must be in full swing because of music. I always try as many variants of material presentation as I’m able.
