Nic Fanciulli at SET December 12
British DJ, producer, and label magnate Nic Fanciulli has risen steadily in international rank to position himself as one of the biggest stars of electronic dance music. His career got off to an auspicious start in the early '00s when fledgling production work piqued the interest of major players such as Pete Tong, Deep Dish, and John Digweed. With club residencies in Ibiza, and best-selling compilation mixes for the prestigious Renaissance and Global Underground series, he quickly made the leap from 20-year-old small-town spinner to globe-trotting DJ sensation.
Fanciulli has remixed tracks by Underworld, Kylie Minogue, and Unkle. His remix for Tracey Thorn and Tiefschwarz's "Damage" (as Buick Project with Andy Chatterley) garnered him a Grammy nomination in 2007. The same year, he released the critically acclaimed album I-Panik under the pseudonym Skylark. Perhaps most significant is the emergence of Fanciulli's label Saved Records as a touchstone of international house and techno. It is home to groundbreaking luminaries such as Santos, Jimpster, Matt Tolfrey, and Joel Mull. Fanciulli will return to Miami fresh off his Ibiza summer residence to perform alongside Carl Cox at SET this Sunday. Get a taste of the transatlantic EDM Zeitgeist.
