Rising from a background with limited musical knowledge, it has been nothing short of a surprise that rapid progression in the world of electronic music has come relatively naturally to Nico.
Having an open and eclectic approach towards music has helped Mendez define his own productions, with his releases featuring on labels such as UM records, Erase Records, Wired Label, Underground Source Records and Blacksoul.
Over the past few years, Nico – as a producer and DJ has received support from the following;
Richie Hawtin, Enzo Siffredi, Little by Little, Shiba San, Ardalan, The Mekanizm, Rodger Sanchez, Stacey Pullen, Ray Okpara, David Keno, Ben Mono, Amine Edge, Sion Cuff, Blacksoul and Bebetta
His raw and distinctive sound gives his mixes and productions edge in an otherwise crowded market.
Nico Mendez is a regular name that floats around the Glasgow circuit, having held residencies all over the city, and making regular appearances with events and Club Nights like Depth Charge, Option One, and Rhythm Feedr.
Early 2017 has seen the launch of Nico’s own imprint ‘Johnny Johnny’. Solely managed and run by himself, Nico’s aim was to create a platform and forward-thinking label that showcased great music.
