Nathan Coles

Nathan Coles. If he hadn’t been born you’d have to invent him.  That’s Nathan Coles.  Born in London, Nathan was weaned on a diet of Rare Groove, Dub, Soul and Electro. Like many free-spirited children of the Acid House revolution, Nathan had his musical epiphany at such seminal clubs as Spectrum at Heaven and the Sunrise parties in the late 80s, where the metronomic thud of the first generation of House music entranced a whole generation.  The biggest musical movement since Rock n’ Roll was born and Nathan was there at the very beginning, cocked and loaded, ready to make his mark.  Armed with a 10000 watt grin, charm by the bucket load, and almost superhuman reserves of stamina, Nathan bumped and hustled his way into the hot, humid netherworld of the Warehouse party scene and, in alliance with Mr C launched the legendary Release parties. These parties were hot tickets, the huge success of which could only add further lustre to Nathan’s rapidly burgeoning reputation as an underground House DJ of great talent.  It was in 1994 however that Nathan really cemented his lofty position in House Music’s Hall of Fame when he and Terry Francis launched the legendary Wiggle parties, and in the process, gave birth to musical movement now known as Tech-House.  Arguably the best Tech-House party of them all, Wiggle’s far-reaching reputation as the party to end all parties was finally officially recognized when it was nominated for ‘Best Underground Club’ at the Muzik Magazine/SAS awards in 1998.  
In this respect Nathan can justifiably be called a musical pioneer, having spent the last 15 years as a kind of roving ambassador of Tech-House, laying down rapturously-received sets of loose-limbed, funk-fuelled House in an array of fantastic venues all over the world, such as: D Edge and Lov E (Sao Paulo), SpiritSound (Play del Carmen, Mexico), The Milkwegg (Amsterdam), OfCorso (Rotterdam), Bora Bora, Underground & Space (Ibiza), The Zouk Club (Singapore)  Aria (Montreal),  Folis Pigalle & The Rex  (Paris), Roxy & Summer Of Love (Czech Republic), Stalker (Amsterdam), The Bomb (Nottingham) The End, Turnmills (London) as well as holding down his residency at FABRIC in London where he never ceases to raise the temperature to boiling point.
In light of his Dj’ing reputation it is of no great surprise therefore that Nathan has also acquired a reputation as an excellent producer as well.  Over the last 10 years he has built up an essential portfolio of House and Breaks releases on an array of imprints such as Loaded, Visitor, Plank, 10 Kilo, Big Chief and Household Recordings, picking up critical plaudits along the way such as ‘Essential Release Of The Month’ in Muzik magazine for his two Get Fucked albums.  He has worked with the best as well including such production luminaries as Nils Hess (as Get Fucked), Matthew B (Mashupheadz), Asad Rizvi (Two Right Wrongans) and Terry Francis (The Delinquents/Housey Doingz).  Having recently built a studio at his home in SE London you can expect a slew of super-funky releases to hit the shops on a regular basis from now on.
After 15 years of Rocking The House Nathan thankfully shows no signs of slowing down.  Indeed, like a fine wine he surely gets better with age, where his almost telepathic ability to read a crowd, immaculate taste in music and flawless mixing abilities never cease to amaze and astound.  Long live The Crown prince of Tech-House,  Nathan Coles.  Long may he reign….
