In Conversation With: Nicky Blackmarket by LAW Magazine (Law-Mag.com)
I’ve got distant memories of fluorescent posters tagged to traffic lights and railings, names like Ratpack and Nicky Blackmarket splashed across them in chunky black text. I was a bit young really, getting my first taste of drum & bass through mixtapes instead of 4am raves, but I do remember this guy.
The folks at LAW Magazine stopped by BM Soho in London to chat with Nicky Blackmarket, UK breakbeat and drum & bass pioneer, about everything from starting out on the radio to fighting over the record store decks with Ashley Beedle. Well worth a watch to find out more about UK underground music, before the internet, from one of it’s gods.
