do the mashItalian native Nicholas Iammatteo has an impressive and extensive sense for deeper dance music. What’s even more impressive is the consistency of his releases and his range. Diva samples, commanding soul, and warm inviting synthesizers breath heavily in his tracks. His work gives the basic tools he uses, room to move and play. His track construction gives life to the forgotten energy that classic underground dance music utilized such as Romanthony, Moodymann, and the timeless Prescription imprint. Soul/funk/disco influences include the likes of Patrick Adams and Leroy Burgess, along with influences from the sounds of Motown Records. In the club, Nicholas has been pushing his own live set and is working towards a more analogue approach. Working with vocalists and his ability to be both reverential and sensitive to his influences whilst also breathing fresh life into them always makes this an intriguing prospect – TSA

Revivalist house might now be everywhere, but few have done it as properly as Italian producer and live specialist, Nicholas. It was his reworking and mixing of the Nu Groove back catalogue in late 2011 that really propelled him into the limelight and since then he has continued to turn out high quality house that is steeped in history yet shies away from pastiche – Teshno
