Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Chris Matthews, otherwise known as DJ Nykon, is not your typical cat. In fact, the eccentric, LRG-wearing, gold chain-waving, turntable-crushing DJ is anything but ordinary. Born in New Jersey and raised in California, DJ Nykon made his way nomadically through the West Coast music scene, and now calls Long Beach,CA home. After building industry relationships by leading street team campaigns for various artists and concerts (including Banksy, Warped Tour and Guerilla Union), DJ Nykon found himself DJ'ing for Living Legends, alongside Visionaries and Hieroglyphics. Soon after, he started DJing for Luckyiam (of Living Legends) and hit the road furiously in 2007. Hitting both the Paid Dues festival and Rock the Bells, he played alongside such notable acts as Rage Against the Machine and Wu-Tang Clan. Currently working on a new Bass Music, with his crew members of The D.R.E.A.M. Brigade and Seekquence. Nykon is on the steady grind touring the U.S. with Sapient of The Sandpeople, Luck N Lana, and Ash Riser. Playing shows ranging from electro,dubstep, and trap parties to packed underground Hip Hop venues. DJ Nykon is coming to a city near you!
