Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Starting with nothing more than a CD player and a belt-drive vinyl deck, Nilesh began DJing in his mate’s bedroom at seventeen.
After honing his skills in the commercial sector, his big break came when he got the chance to play a Ministry of Sound: Big Tunes event and he impressed us so much, we invited him to come on the road with us for the 2005 Ministry of Sound Tour.
His productions under the Bass Slammers and Static Shokx aliases led to him supporting Bass Hunter at BBC Radio 1’s One Big Weekend with a Dance Nation arena tour soon following. His remix work on 2009’s Big Tunes: Ignition gave him a number two compilation album. His work with big names like B.O.B, Fugative and Vato Gonzalez has garnered major airplay on the likes of Radio One, Galaxy and KISS FM and we’re thrilled to have him on the Ministry of Sound Tour residents team.
