"Peelie, Charlie, Gilles, Annie...Nick Luscombe has become one of those radio titans." (Straight No Chaser)
For over 15 years Nick Luscombe has been committed to seek out and share quality, modern music across many genres, styles and sounds through his radio shows and DJ sets. XFM provided a platform for his popular Flomotion show from 2000 to 2006, and it then moved to the programme's current home at Resonance FM.
Nick also presents the Sony Award-winning BBC Radio 3 Late Junction programme and is a regular guest on Monocle 24 and BBC 6 Music.
An exclusive monthly in-flight version of Flomotion can also be heard on all British Airways flights.
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 broadcsting 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, the Royal Festival Hall 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.
