With such a gentlemanly moniker, dj mr. nick is indeed as debonair, courteous, polite, and professional as his name would imply. But he is also so much more. With strong ties to Honolulu’s reputable independent music station KTUH, mr. nick has become rooted in listeners’ brains with his impeccable taste in an eclectic range of music and his expert execution of perfect radio show sets. His popular show, The JET SET, takes you around the musical world on Wednesdays from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on KTUH, and his other show, Bridging the Gap, airs on Saturday nights on HPR2 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.
As a nightlife DJ outside of the radio station, mr. nick has proven that he can cater to any audience while still keeping true to his style — he can introduce esoteric beats to the most discerning of audiences and keep them moving as if they are hearing their favorite song for the first time. From bossa nova to breaks, from to soul to electro, from jazz to house, mr. nick can keep nights to a solid theme or mix genres as naturally as peanut butter and jelly.
With a humble demeanor, mr. nick still commands a presence as strong as his work ethic is unwavering. His personality and skill have secured him DJ residencies at bars at the helm of Chinatown’s artful renaissance, such as thirtyninehotel, Bar 35 and Nextdoor. He’s played with internationally-famous acts Diplo, Dimitri from Paris, Ursula 1000, Fort Knox Five and many more. He’s played gigs in Asia and has toured the islands as a top DJ pick for Honolulu’s premiere cabaret revue Cherry Blossom Cabaret.
A signature way to describe his sets sums up a dj mr. nick experience: he is sure to play something you have never heard before, but will never forget.
