A name synonymous with electronic music culture, Nic Fanciulli represents the formative generation
of DJs that carved Ibiza’s status within dance music; his career has spanned two decades at the forefront
of the underground music scene. With so many projects constantly in the works, Fanciulli stands out as
a truly multifaceted artist, with this proving the key to his longevity in an increasingly fast-paced
Nic’s career began with working in a record store and handing out demo tapes. Fast forward several
years and his skills now pull crowds of over 40,000 internationally and have earned him a remarkable
3 residencies in the clubbing mecca of Ibiza including his own ‘La Familia’ at the 5000 capacity venue
Ushuaia and ‘We Are The Night’ at Pacha. The latter saw support from the likes of Sasha, Tiga, and
Guy Gerber, whilst in 2016 Nic played the final ever closing set of the renowned club Space in an
incendiary six hour b2b performance with Carl Cox. Nic returned to the venue in 2017 to mark the new
era of ‘Hi Ibiza’ for his weekly residency ‘In The Dark’ alongside Steve Lawler, Joris Voorn, and
Luciano, and has proven himself a hugely influential figure in the popularity of the venue.
The Grammy-nominated producer is responsible for a high output of sleek, intelligent yet driving house
and techno including remixes for Underworld, Kylie Minogue, Groove Armada, The Juan MacLean,
Gorillaz, Calvin Harris & Dua Lipa, and U.N.K.L.E. to vast critical acclaim. The desire to share music
with others has always been a driving force in Nic's career, which led to him founding one of the UK’s
biggest house and techno labels Saved Records in 2005. A purveyor of international house and techno,
Saved has become a global brand renowned for it's cutting-edge releases from wide ranging producers
such as Adam Beyer, Joris Voorn, Hot Since 82, Andrea Oliva and Guti and collaborations with Young
Turks’ Jamie XX and Romy to name a few.
Nic released his 16-track debut album ‘My Heart in 2017, an LP that was 10 years in the making. The
production features the likes of Damon Albarn, Jamie Principle and Kanye West collaborator
CONSTANCE, and has served as an open, creative space where Nic set out to delve into unexpected
and experimental soundscapes presenting both club-ready tracks and more downtempo records for the
home-listener. “I’ve spent so much time and effort making this album that it’s essentially become a part
of me, it has become my heart and my soul”, Nic Explains. The album’s success saw Nic slated to
perform only two exclusive ‘My Heart’ live shows at Miami’s Art Basel alongside album collaborators
Agoria, Audion, Eagles & Butterflies, with another show scheduled at Village Underground in London
for January 2018.
It’s this continued desire to share his experiences that also led to Nic to found his boutique festival, The
Social. Beginning life as a way of bringing world-class names to Maidstone, The Social has grown from
a one day event to a three day festival, and has branched out to hold parties in Mexico, Colombia, and
more. The festival has hosted the likes of Carl Cox, Nina Kravitz, Apollonia and Sasha & John
Digweed, who’s first show back together was at The Social in 2016.
Nic remains an Ibiza regular with dates at circoloco, Paradise and ANTS and appearances at festivals
including Tomorrowland, Mysteryland and Movement. Playing a Resistance festival residency that
spanned across Colombia, Brazil, Peru and Buenos Aires, Nic’s journey to his current status has been
an entirely organic one, born out of his genuine love for the scene and a desire to share this with others.
His tireless work ethic has seen him continue to tour the globe relentlessly, expanding his many projects
along the way.
Nic entered the fashion world in 2018, debuting a sold out collaboration with designer Marc Jacques
Burton. Also in the summer of 2018 Nic teamed up with Italian designer and owner of Numero 00
Valerio Farina for the second My Heart Capsule Collection.
