Nick Maidment is a Welsh techno DJ (Fnoob Techno Radio) who grew up with the rave scene during its inception in the very early '90s.
Having been introduced to decks at the age of 18 (by a chance meeting with very like-minded people), he found quickly that he has a real passion for manipulating sounds.
As the scene matured (and eventually split into the subgenres) he found that whilst he enjoyed almost all genres, techno was his first love.
He gained a monthly residency at Cardiffs infamous "Clwb Ifor Bach" (The Welsh Club) during the mid '90s until his job led him abroad to the likes of Greece, Italy and Australia.
Having left DJing alone for so long (in excess of a decade), a conversation struck up with an old friend relating to his enthusiasm for all things music and he took the decision to get back into mixing having realised how much he missed it.
Nicks knowledge of the rave scene has quickly led him to where he currently stands as the Tuesday Schedule Manager on the internet techno radio station "Fnoob".
Nicks discovery of Fnoob began with a chance meeting with Fnoob residents and he was offered guest slots for the Fnoob Techno Radio shows "Soundcheck Sessions" (Peter Hathaway) and "The Labyrinth" (Jack Dark (Steve Tisdale)). He has also played guest sets on Hard Force United (Russia), "Techno Vibes" on Cuebase-FM (Germany) with H The Killer Machine and provided a set for the InProgress Weekender (Holland). All sets were received well by listeners from all corners of the globe.
Nicks podcast "The Noise Gate", broadcasts at 21:00-23:00 (GMT) on Tuesdays, 4-weekly. Be sure to tune in @ http://www.fnoob.com
He is currently seeking non-Fnoob affiliated techno DJs for either guest slots and/or shows.
