Ep94 - Nick Halkes (XL, Positiva, Trailblazers Podcast)

This weeks guest is none other than Nick Halkes. A chap who’s career has grown alongside the the UK dance music scene.


Nick was one of the founders of independent record label XL Recordings where he signed and worked with acts such as House of Pain, SL2 and Liquid before taking up a position as a director at EMI and launching the Positiva label. The Positiva label enjoyed significant success under Halkes leadership with artists such as Reel to Real,Alice Deejay,The Bucketheads and more and is now home to David Guetta and Deadmau5 amongst others.


Nick joined Chris and Stu to do a HCL first and run through a top 5 in chronological order, giving us an insight into the the clubnights and people that set him on the path he followed.


This episode is fascinating and also a good laugh, as Nick was articulate, smart and very easy to get along with.


The boys also discuss his podcast Trailblazers which he records with HCL friend Eddie Tempel Morris and his awesome clubnight Reach Up, with partners Andy Smith and Crissy Kybosh.
