Where did the name Nisekay come from??

It actually came from a Japanese friend i met in India.  It was just around the time i started mixing records.  Apparently it is ancient Japanese for ‘disco horse’

So you are man behind the infamous Lo*Kee parties. How did they all start??
It all started just over 2 years ago.  Alongside my good friends Akie and Sebastian Voigt, we all wanted to do a party.  Something different to what was going on.  I was moving out of my flat at the time so we decided to look for a warehouse space.  We found one immediately and i moved in.  We then spent the next month turning the space into our own club.  ‘the candy factory’ was born.  My kitchen became the bar and over the next year, we did a party every 2 weeks.  We said farewell ‘to the candy factory’ after 1 year with a 24 hour party to celebrate with all the friends we had made during that time.  Since then, we have been fortunate to work with some amazing artists using different spaces across East London.  We rely on friends bringing new friends to the party and have an amazing community who support us in what we do.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen in a club??
Not a club as such, but i think the weirdest thing i ever saw at a party was a snake!  It was in Goa at an outdoor venue called ‘Dolce Vita’.  It was 2005 i think.  The party had just finished and everyone was sat around in the sun.  All of a sudden, an Israeli guy appeared with a snake that he had just found in the bushes.  The snake was passed around a few people in post-party amazement until it made its way to an old russian hippy called Sergei who put the snake around his neck and sat there proclaiming to be Shiva.  It was a very surreal moment and one I’m sure i wont experience again.

You also make beats, What can we expect to hear in 2010 from your studio??
Lets wait and see about that.  I’m working very hard in the studio at the moment but I’m not in any rush to get my music out there.  I have had a couple of offers so far this year to release my music but I’m taking my time with it.  I want to wait till i have something really good to release.  Will that be in 2010?  I’m not sure.  I’m just going to keep enjoying making music and see if it takes me there.

So what have you been upto recently??

Mainly building up my baby – Genius. Which is the first Sunday of every month at Public Life and every 2nd month on a Saturday at Cargo.

You’ve been on the scene for quite a while. Tell us more about when you were a resident for Paris’s Queen’s Club??

Back in the 90’s i was Djing for people like Wayne Shire / Rod Lay / Fat Tony / Graham Ball / Andy Kooky, doing 5/6 parties a week. Wayne took me over to Queen to do a Kinky Gerlinky party and at the end of the night the manager ask to become the Friday/Saturday resident. Taking over from David Guetta, i was the only uk full time they ever had, i think. I stay for just under a year and loved it, at the time it was the best club in France.

You’ve dabbled with production over the years. Any plans for 2010??

Definitely. Especially now, it’s super important to be making track to help spread your name. I’m in the process of setting up my studio again and my aim is to do couple of projects with some Djs friends and get them out by the end of the year.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve seen in a club??

I’ve seen some real characters in my time and love it, that what clubbing should be about, but having said that. I use to Dj at the first Substation (later to be Ghetto) in Soho back in the 90’s and there used to be this guy, who would come down to the club around 9.30/10pm and then spend the whole evening at the toilet, leaning up against the wall, just watching guys pee! The whole night, i kid you not!!! Midnight i would take a pee, he would be there, 3/4am he would be still be there, all night long! I always wonder if he pulled 🙂

On Friday 2nd July KuKu will launch at Shoreditch’s hot spot “Basing House” formerly known as “On The Rocks”. For our first party we welcome the legendry Smokin’ Jo [Area Remote/We Love..], Malarky [The LAW London] to play alongside resident DJ Natalie Coleman. KuKu will then run every friday from there on.

So you’ve had some really cool releases on Yellowtail & Area Remote this year. What does the rest of 2010 have instore for you production wise??

Well I am actually starting two new projects one is top secret which I cannot divulge just yet the other is a joint project with a fantastic musician, I aim to produce some fully formed dance tracks with melodies and hooks, not as linear as my other stuff,I’m working toward an artist album and to perform all the tracks live, remixing them on the fly. I’m really looking forward to the live show as this is very new and exciting to be able to create tracks each show that will be slightly different each time. 

You are a resident DJ for the infamous “We Love” parties at Space, Ibiza. Whats one of your most memorable moments at “We Love”??

Oh god, there have been many amazing moments, to play on the Space terrace in Ibiza is every DJ’s dream , the experience is just so amazing and every set I play there I get a real buzz each time. Last year Grace Jones performed and I must say that was very memorable, I got to meet and hang out with her after which was a dream come true, she is hilarious and a true talent.

You’ve played in pretty much every corner of the world, what’s your favourite country to play in and why??

I love playing in Italy as the crowd are just totally nuts, they really know their music and are very vocal, always cheering and chanting, it really gives you a lift when you spin over there, Ibiza is still one of my fav places of course and also I love Brazil.

Biggest bomb to drop of all time?? 

That is an impossible question, sorry
