Nick Heath

ENGINE ROOMS

Nicks always been a big lover of all types of music. His dad was a radio Dj in the army, so from an early age he knew music was where he wanted to be. Nick got into the drum and bass scene at 15 and as soon as he could, he was going to raves and gaining an even bigger love for music By 18 he had his first proper mix thanks to a mate showing him a few things, he was hooked.
A few years past and a collection of vinyl grew and so did his family with him and his wife Kerri having 5 beautiful children by now.
Nick then met his now best mate a fellow lover of music (Ticey) who one weekend invited him to a local house event. Not normally his bag it but changed his mind set and that was his first steps into the house seen.
After a few party’s local to Southampton UK, he was asked to an event that had run for years and is iconic in the scene: Labrynth! This was the full game changer and was definitely the start of what he’s doing today.
Upon the return from one of the greatest party’s he had attended, Nick returned and packed away the vinyl and started buying house, tech house, acid and techno as the progression to digital and MP3 came on.
He then got invited to become part of the Club Nite live team and played his first set at Time Tunnel. He’s now a regular

and upwards!

THE VINE - HEADLINE ACT

At sixteen years of age a spark was ignited in Dan Thompson’s heart after attending a weekly ‘rave’ in his local town hall. He purchased himself a set of turn tables and that paved the way for this Southern England born DJ’s future in music. He wanted to be a DJ! Music became Dan’s passion and every spare moment was spent practising, listening to music and going to clubs for inspiration. Dan eventually became a regular on the Portsmouth trance scene but decided to try his hand at producing, releasing his first track ‘Bipolar’ in 2012. Like a dream come true, ‘Bipolar’ caught the attention of trance legend Armin Van Buuren and featured on his weekly radio show ‘A State of Trance’. Little did Dan know then that he would go on to feature on the ASOT radio show multiple times in the past four years, including being picked for Armin’s very own ’Tune of the Week’ on three occasions, as well as having six tracks released on ASOT, with a further two having been signed for release in 2017.

Not only has Dan been welcomed with open arms by the Armada family, he has also become a firm favourite with Coldharbour head honcho Markus Schulz, releasing five tracks on the Coldharbour record label, with another release also in 2017, and full support always given in Markus’s sets and on his weekly radio show Global DJ Broadcast.

Dan has collaborated with the likes of Talla 2XLC, Solis and Sean Truby, Craig Connelly, Mino Safy and Omair Mirza. He has also remixed for Arkham Knights, Antillas, Fabio XB feat Christina Novelli and had his remix of Armin VanBuuren and Susana’s ‘Shivers’ released by Armada after Armin heard it during Dan’s debut set at ASOT 700.

Dan is known for his big melodic breakdowns and dark and techy big room productions, making him a versatile player in the progressive tech-trance scene. His sounds have so far seen him play the afore mentioned A State of Trance 700 and Coldharbour Beach Festival, Netherlands, The Gallery at Ministry of Sound, Trance Sanctuary and Elevation Audio, London as well as Trancescated and Fest Jak Chces in the Czech Republic, to name a few.
