Nickee B is a young music maker, born in 1984 (Lyon, France).
From an early age, he got introduced to 80′s funk which clearly appeared to him as a musical revelation. Back then, he spent most of his time listenning to classic cuts such as James ‘D Train’ Williams, Shalamar, Skyy or Central Line.
A couple of years later, Nickee started collecting vinyls and discovered the joys of spinning records. He became a talented DJ and started mixing at various occasions in local funk parties. This growing passion for 80′s boogie naturally led him to engage himself in music production in 2009 with influences such as Nick Straker Band, Bryan Loren, BB & Q Band, Second Image or even Network.
Nickee B style is easily recognizable: heavy beats, catchy melodies and a great deal of synths !
His first releases “1984″ and “You’re The One” won recognition in the online 80′s funk community and encouraged him to pursue his efforts.
