Timo Garcia aka Nolan
Straddling House and Disco with a unique twist and an eye for the underground, NOLAN is making serious waves right now, with key releases on Get Physical, Kittball, MadTech, Gruuv, OFF, Connaisseur & Mother Recordings.
His collaboration with legendary actor Idris Elba, released on vinyl with its analog heavy Of Norway remix featured as opening track on John Digweed’s radio show leading to NOLAN’s own guest mix on Transitions which was then swiftly followed up with another guest mix, this time for Pete Tong.
Jump back to 2012 and Nolan’s debut release ‘Thief’ was snapped up by New York’s Nurvous Records, making its way into the discerning boxes of Solomun, Maceo Plex & Wolf+Lamb. His follow up ‘Ghetto Bicep’ EP was released on vinyl by Connaisseur Recordings. Followed by a sizzling hot two tracker on Audiojack’s GRUUV imprint, again on vinyl with remixes courtesy of John Tejada and Poker Flat’s Kyodai. Then came ‘Go Slow’ with it’s choice remixes from Miguel Puente & a young Finnebassen who’s remix clocked up well over 5 million plays on YouTube.
Nolan’s collaborations with Soul songstress Rachel Adedeji created a huge buzz amongst the DJ community with remixes from DJ T, Sharam Jey, Climbers & ATFC. Which was followed by a slew of releases on Low Steppa’s Simma Black, ALiVE, Sleazy Deep, LouLou Records, Dear Deer, King Street Sounds & another slick vinyl release this time with a killer remix from Kevin Over (Truesoul / mobilee).
But it’s NOLAN’s collaboration with Amber Jolene, which spent an unprecedented 256 days in the Beatport NuDisco charts (100 days in the top 10 itself). The sublime remix by Danish rising star KANT resonated around Ibiza and featured on the Toolroom Ibiza, Armada Sunset, Ministry Of Sound Chilled House, Coco Beach & Pure Salinas Ibiza compilation CDs and has now clocked up over 11 million plays on YouTube!
Fast forward to 2016 and NOLAN’s latest collaborations with the inimitable Forrest landed on Mother Recordings & KITTBALL followed by two releases on Kerri Chandler’s MadTech Records.
There’s plenty more to come with new music signed to Soul Clap & Wolf+Lamb’s Crew Love Records as well as a collab with House Music legend Joi Cardwell (of Lil Louis – Club Lonely fame) coming soon on Henry Street Records.
