Nick Warren Ο Βρετανός καλλιτέχνης της progressive house που ξεκίνησε την καριέρα του ως tour dj των Massive Attack και καθιερώθηκε μουσικά μέσα από τις σπουδαίες του παραγωγές στην Global Underground και τη Renaissance, συνεχίζει ως επικεφαλής του δισκογραφικού label Ηope Recordings. Ο Nick Warren αποτελεί μια από τις πιο μαζικά αναγνωρισμένες και αξιοσέβαστες περιπτώσεις καλλιτέχνη, τόσο για το γεγονός ότι παραμένει στην κορυφή παράγοντας συνέχεια καινοτομίες, όσο και για το ότι ταυτόχρονα ο προσωπικός ήχος του είναι τόσο χαρακτηριστικός που από ένα σύντομο άκουσμα αντιλαμβάνεσαι την παρουσία του στα decks. Γι' αυτόν έχει γραφτεί χαρακτηριστικά: «το πολυτάλαντος είναι μια συγκρατημένη περιγραφή».
Nick Warren Nick Warren became one of the first so-called "superstar DJs" in the mid-to-late '90s, holding down a high-profile residency at Cream in England, touring around the world, and appearing on several DJ mix albums before they became commonplace. Though he spun an eclectic array of dance styles in the late '80s and early '90s, he eventually championed the late-'90s trance sound of labels like Hooj Choons and joined the ranks of other superstar DJs like Paul Oakenfold, Sasha, and Tall Paul. Before leading a jet-set lifestyle, Warren moved to Bristol in the 1980s after having just turned 20. By the early '90s, he was one of the city's top DJs, spinning upstairs at Vision, one of the city's first super-clubs. At the time, Warren spun everything from dub and hip-hop to house, which became his preferred style. When fellow Bristol artists Massive Attack left to tour America in the wake of their early success, they invited Warren to accompany them on tour as their official DJ, a testament to his turntable skills as well as his reputation at the time. Eventually, Warren began a massively successful stint as the resident DJ at Cream in Liverpool. The years that followed saw Nick Warren enjoy a whirlwind of success. Through a combination of providing acclaimed mixes for Mixmag, DMC, and the hugely successful Global Underground series, and releasing a string of club-smashing solo singles, Warren found himself catapulted into the electronic and house big leagues; and, by continuing to release acclaimed albums, singles, and remixes with his Way Out West partner-in-crime, Jody Wisternoff, and remixing tracks for the likes of Lana Del Rey, he firmly established himself as a truly multi-faceted producer of top-quality dance music. Having already graced the decks at every self-respecting super-club on the planet and made his name as a superstar DJ, the late Noughties saw Warren turn his hand to the business side of the music industry. Now, as the A&R of Bristol-based Hope Recordings, he spends his time seeking to hone and promote the next generation of club-smashing DJ and production talent; and, through the expansion of his label The Soundgarden into a globe-straddling international events and entertainment brand, set in stone his already firmly-established reputation as a giant of electronic, techno, and house music. With a flurry of new releases, further The Soundgarden live events, and the first-ever Way Out West live tour already in the diary for 2018, Nick Warren is showing no signs of slowing down; and, if the continued devotion of his ever-expanding fan-base is anything to go by, that’s a decision that will be welcomed with open arms by dance music lovers the world over.

Ύφος τραγουδιού και άλμπουμ: Rock, Hard rock.
I sat before the wise man in the autumn of my youth And I told him all the things I had to know He said you heard the future if you need to find the truth
And in his eyes I saw that it was so
So I came around and asked him the meaning of live And as he smiled I saw a twinkle in his eyes He said with all his years there's still so much he has to learn And once again, I saw that it was so
Keep on living low and wanting for your turn Is the only way to ease your concern If you want to find your dream for sure You don't wake up too soon And you'll find that he's a shooting for the moon
Wise man, wise man Which way should I run There's so many roads, so many ways to turn I'm like a blind man, lost in the sun I wanna be like you and be a wise man too But I'm looking for an easy way to learn
