Nic Fanciulli is a DJ, producer, and record label owner who has upheld the UK’s reputation in the world of dance music time and time again. His skill is not only known worldwide, but it is of a rare breed as he gained his recognition solely on his skills as a DJ.
His record label, Saved, is a staple in the world of underground house and techno, frequently hosting premier events and sharing music from established greats like himself as well as exciting newcomers. Across the hundreds of releases in the label’s catalog, Josh Butler, John Summit, AMEME, Deeper Purpose, Mason Maynard, and David Squillace have all made unique contributions that vary widely in terms of sound and style.
Beyond his own solo career as a producer and DJ which has taken him all over the globe, Fanciulli also has earned a GRAMMY nomination for working behind the scenes producing for other artists including Underworld, Kylie Minogue, U.N.K.L.E, Loco Dice, Josh Wink, Hot Natured, and Tracey Thorn.
With this diverse understanding of music creation, Fanciulli has become an expert curator as well, offering his skills to numerous compilations CDs from revered brands like Renaissance, Global Underground, Balance, and Defected’s In The House series
Fanciulli has been shaking up the world of dance music since his early twenties, but he’s never let that success go to his head. He’s always honored his UK roots, all the way back to his hometown of Maidstone where he’s consistently hosted events.
He even started a festival there called The Social in the Summer of 2013, and over the years the event has brought titanic forces in dance music to perform like Four Tet, Hot Since 82, Joy Orbison, Monika Kruse, and Richy Ahmed.
It’s hard to fathom all the ways Fanciulli has influenced dance music culture, but come to one of his sets and you can find out for yourself.
