Her story began in her homeland of Lebanon where Nicole became the first person to bring dance music to Beirut and provide big name DJs with a taste of the Middle East. Hosting an unforgettable party between a bombed out mosque and a church, Nicole proved that dance music had the power to unite; an ideology that’s become all the more relevant throughout the years. Upon moving to London she ran Southeast Recordings, which became home to artists like T-Total, Christian Hornbostel and Tom Stephan, and spearheaded Soundworx at legendary London club Turnmills. Born in Ibadan (Nigeria), Nicole lived her early years in Lagos, before moving with her family to Lebanon. Her studies in London led her to get into clubbing and she began to travel. “I fell in love with house music in NY back in 1989, hearing Junior Vasquez and Danny Tenaglia” says Nicole. “Since then I’ve travelled the world chasing the best parties, from Paris to Madrid, Amsterdam, NY, LA, London, Ibiza and beyond.” Now Nicole has begun producing and her tracks have been picked up by the likes of Azuli Records, Plastic City and The Shapeshifters’ own Nocturnal Groove label. “I'm a creative, but also an entrepreneur, and I love to express this through all aspects of my environment – sound, vision, everything” says Nicole.
