DJ Nico Interview
Which person(s) in your life first got you Into music and can you remember the artists or songs that you first connected with?
How and when did your passion for music translate into you becoming a DJ and can you tell us about your first live DJ Set?
I started to go to record fairs at 16. The larger one happened a few times a year at a legion hall in the west end of Toronto. I was obsessed with U2. That was the first band I started to collect. By the time I went to University, the Brit Pop and indie scene was in full force. I started a job at HMV to pay for school which fed my taste for collecting even more. I was invited to DJ with a bunch of school friends at a very dodgy cafe. I did spin records for that first gig but spent some years spinning CDs in the 90s. Then back to vinyl in the mid 2000s.
This year you are celebrating 8 years of running With It! Can you tell us about why you started the event, what it promotes, and some of the DJs involved with it.
