Once turned down by a Shoreditch DJ agency for being “too much of a maverick DJ” because he wouldn’t stick to one sound, NOLAN has always been one to read the crowd and deliver, regardless of whatever the genre du jour might be. Drawing on a vast array of influences from Disco to House, Funk to Breaks & Techno to Dub, NOLAN remains a forward thinking & innovative producer & DJ. His studio prowess has landed him record deals with some of the most respected & influential labels around the world including Mobilee, Bedrock, Stil vor Talent, LNOE, Faith, Circus Recordings, Renaissance & Get Physical Music.
Master of disguise NOLAN is also one half of the enigmatic Cypherpunx duo with records out on Crosstown Rebels, Global Underground and Bedrock with music featured on both Sasha & John Digweed’s most recent albums. Alongside their alter ego Flip Fantazia, a guise used for ‘Intelligent Modern Drama-Score’ or Library Music as it was once fondly known! Signed to Ninja Tune & BMG Production Music companies, Deep East Music, Cavendish & The Music Supervisors NOLAN has written over 100 tracks specifically for TV/Sync purposes some of which have featured on Masterchef, Sky News, The X Factor and doof doof doof….
