Nicky Lars’s first step in hip hop was in 1996 as a MC.
In 2001 he purchased a MPC 2000XL « It was out of curiosity … to learn more about my passion, I was like I’m going to make two or three songs and resell this thing!”
A few years later, his music inspired by artists such as the Native Tongues, Slum Village style, the X (men), Hifi and Les Sages Poetes de la Rue received a particular attention in Parisian underground; will ensue productions and guest appearances on various projects with French artists (Guiguipop and Bomb H) but also international collaborations with artists such as Brea (Deep Rooted), Suzi Analogue and Ty.
He gains even more recognition with his 2010 project “The Jamiroquai beat tape” all produced with samples from the British acid jazz band.
His first album “Musica Negra” was released on Dooinit Music in 2014. In this production appreciated by the public, he returns to his roots by drawing his samples and his inspiration from the Afro-Caribbean music.
