Ghost Town Christmas Special with Alexander Nut (NTS Radio / Eglo Records)
On Friday December 20th join us for a special Christmas edition of the Ghost Town series. This time round find us taking over FarGo Village’s ‘The Box’ warehouse where we’ll be giving you some seriously festive feelings, with Eglo Records boss and former Rinse FM, now NTS Radio resident DJ Alexander Nut.
To get the festive spirit flowing this mad Friday we\’ll be decking out the venue with some extra special Christmas theme installations, lights and decorations. Plus cheeses and mulled wine available for those arriving early.
Alexander Nut has made a name for himself as one of the UK’s most diverse and influential DJ’s. An avid record collector, uninhibited by tempo or time zone, his expansive taste and knowledge draws heavy on influences from House, Soul, Hip Hop, Jazz, Afrobeat, Reggae and Funk. Alex is also the man behind Eglo Records, the label he co-founded with Floating Points in 2008, after discovering and managing the then emerging artist. Eglo is home to some of the most exciting, forward thinking music coming out of the UK. Responsible for seminal releases from Anderson Paak, Henry Wu, Fatima, Funkineven, Byron The Aquarius, Steve Spacek and many more. His role as a freelance A&R has seen him curate projects for the likes of Bonobo, Beatspacek and Mr Scruff to name a few.
Alex is also a veteran radio show host, serving the airwaves for well over a decade. As one of Rinse FM’s standout DJ’s since it’s early pirate days, he ended his regular Saturday daytime slot after 8 years, embarking on a new musical chapter over at NTS Radio in 2015, cementing his position as one of the most important selectors and tastemakers on British radio. He plays the game in the name of Peace, Love, Unity and having Fun.
