Nick Chacona bio
As the branches of house stretch further and further out across the universe of sub-genres, it's quite easy for many artists to be pigeonholed into this or that sound. It's seems quite the opposite for Brooklyn, NY's Nick Chacona. Over the years his productions have grown to encompass elements of sound from across the world of dance music, melding the arpeggiated sounds of Rimini, the trackiness of Chicago, minimalism of Berlin, and dubbed out vibes of Kingston, Jamaica sometimes in the same track.
Nick Began producing in 1999 under the Version Eternal Moniker for NY label Homestyle Cooking. In 2003, Nick released his Tour de force in "Band Practice", the B-side to his mysterious promo-only "Pool Party" project. Initially the release was under the radar but within a year, Band practice was a frequent tune in the sets of DJs from Harvey, Rub & Tug, & Prins Thomas and whatever copies that were left sold out swiftly, turning the record into a much sought after collector's piece. Since that time Nick has gone on to release tracks on renowned labels Mood Music, 2020 Vision, Buzzin Fly, Saw, Dogtown, Bearfunk, and the Inagural release for Prins Thomas's Internasjonal. Nick is a partner in the Hector Works imprint that was founded by his old Skateboarding buddy Anthony Mansfield (Barfly, Rong Records) which has released a number of collaborations between the two and reissued the Both Pool Party and Brand Practice as proper singles. He has recently finished remixes for Tiny Sticks, Eighttrack, Gomma, Past Due, Ransom Note and is currently working on his first full Length release for Sasse's Mood Music.
In a DJ capacity, Nick is as versatile as you will find. He began DJing over 15 years ago strictly playing reggae but shortly thereafter fell in love with house & disco. Never one to let the crowd down, Nick's sets are filled with energy, finesse, and diversity flowing from Nu Disco, House,techno, Italo and classics- whatever is required in the moment. He has played across the US from NY to San Francisco, as well as Brazil, Germany, Belgium, Sweden, Holland, and the UK. He truly understands the fundamental aspect of a party is FUN and it's quite apparent when he's in the booth!
