Its the 21st May, 1982. Opening night of The Hacienda club in Manchester, England. British comedian Bernard Manning stands on a rickety stage and proclaims: "Ive played some shit-holes during my time, but this is really something". Little did he know that this now infamous club would become the throbbing core of the UKs house and techno scene throughout the late 80s and early 90s. By the time Manchester-born house and techno producer Nik Feral began thrilling audiences across Europe with his scalpel-sharp arrangements, The Hacienda was long closed. But that's not to say Feral doesn't have the weight of Manchester's legacy behind him. And with history comes expectation. Expectation that is stoked the minute you are released by UMEKs hallowed 1605 Music Therapy imprint - as happened with Feral back in 2011. It's Feral's ability to seamlessly weave multiple ideas and multiple structures into his arrangements that sets him apart. And he does so without the mix ever sounding too clogged, too cluttered, too claustrophobic. Maybe that's why he is winning increasing support from major players like Richie Hawtin, Nicole Moudaber, Umek, Tocadisco, Carlo Lio and Drumcell.
With his latest release on Baptism Records, On the title track that devilish voice foretells a near-future: In the heat of the night, when everybody's in the right mood, Ill see you there, Ill see you dancing... On the evidence of Feral's increasing stock with DJs across the planet, thats an apt prophecy.
Nik continues to support those labels who were savvy enough to spot his talent in the early days, now broadens his horizons with working along side Alex Nemec on co productions and set to take the scene by storm, adding weight to his expansion by breaking out with the Primal Nature Alias working along side Steve Owen, Nik is in it for the long run and continues to grow in his sound and nature...Creating a unique style that is one to look out for..
