RNX. Spiral… names known all too well to Trance music aficionados behind the decks and on the dancefloor. For more than a decade his productions have help define a genre and he is recognised as the one most consistent producers of Uplifting Trance. But who is Robert Nickson?
At first glance you may see just another producer from dance music’s cultural home. Whilst his musical influences certainly developed in the Netherlands, Robert’s background is a multi-national affair. Born to an English father and Norwegian mother, his perception of the world naturally become quite broad and unique – perhaps why, when it came to music, his ideas were instantly ahead of the curve.
From the timeless 2004 record ‘Spiral’ to more recent masterpieces such as ‘Everest’ & ‘Touchdown’, Nickson has continually grown his mountain of fans, counting many of the world’s leading DJs among them. Global headliners Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Tiësto and Above & Beyond are just some of the tastemakers who have been broadcasting his productions for over a decade.
Any living soul who can produce music of this calibre should be no stranger to the stage and Robert is no exception. His DJ style, whilst authentic and without need for flashy stage effects, takes listeners on an ethereal journey beyond the realm of consciousness.
Having toured all corners of the earth from London to Buenos Aires, Sydney to Ibiza and beyond, Nickson has refined the raw edge that made his original sound and DJ sets so palpable. Despite ever-changing dancefloor trends, he has continued to bestow upon us the extraordinary. In fact, a quick look at his gig diary and release schedule shows us this melodic mastermind is very much in the prime of his career.
