"Peelie, Charlie, Gilles, Annie...Nick Luscombe has become one of those radio titans." (Straight No Chaser)
Nick’s commitment to seeking out new, forward-thinking music, has constantly won him new fans, sharing emerging and underground music discoveries through his radio shows and DJ sets. Since his radio shows on XFM from 2000 to 2006, to his current programmes for BBC national radio, Nick has maintained an unswerving focus on quality modern music across many genres, styles and sounds.
Nick presents radio as part of the Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 3 Late Junction team and also continues to produce and present his weekly `Flomotion' radio show, broadcast on London's Resonance 104.4FM and Open Lab in Ibiza. He is also a regular guest on Stuart Maconie's BBC 6 Music's `Freakier Zone'.
His monthly in-flight version of `Flomotion' can also be heard on all British Airways flights. Nick also presents a downtempo music show on Singapore Airlines. His diverse radio selections include soulful and futuristic dance and non-club electronic music, with jazz, hip hop and folk inspired sounds. As a globe-trotting radio producer, he has produced radio shows that have taken him far afield to discover the sounds of Cuba, Jamaica, Japan, South Africa and Morocco. He also produced BBC Radio 2 series `The Sound of The City', presented by one of Nick’s musical heroes, the late Charlie Gillett.
Nick was also instrumental in the production of David Sylvian’s `Amplified Gesture'. Nick interviewed Christian Fennesz, Sachiko M., Toshimaru Nakamura, Evan Parker, Eddie Prévost, Keith Rowe, John Tilbury, Otomo Yoshihide, among others for the project. It stands as one of the most definitive films about improvised music ever made.
Nick’s passionate curation and promotion of countless live music and DJ showcases at venues as varied as Cargo in Shoreditch and the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, has, over the past decade, helped provide a dynamic platform for new artists and his popular radio shows have helped inspire a new generation of electronic music producers.
Nick’s club DJing has taken him to venues throughout the UK and Europe and around the world to Singapore, Scandinavia, Japan, the USA and India. He continues to maintain a number of London residencies across the city.
Nick has DJed and hosted stages at many outdoor festivals and events such as the Big Chill Festival, Big Chill Goa, Secret Garden Party, Bestival, Green Man, Somerset House outdoor film screenings, Thames Festival Main Stage and `Freedom Sunset’ near Tokyo. Nick was also selected to represent the best of British DJs at a British Council week-long event in India.
His eclectic DJ sets represent a feast of musical styles, each a one-off and tailor made for that night. His eclectic deep club sounds blend moody and futuristic house with electronica, jazz, techno, soul, disco and hip hop.
