Biography of Nihil Young
|Moniker(s) / ||Less Hate|
Since 2008, Mattia Marotta, a self taught 20 years old music lover, has been very busy delivering a remarkable amount of productions and remixes for many top artists and labels.
He’s helped changing and evolving the trends in House Music, Minimal and Tech House, writing and engineering top selling tunes for his own Frequenza and Frequenza Limited, Definitive Recordings, 1605, Ultra Music, Armada, Universal and – just recently – Atlantic Records.
Discovered by iconic figures such as Umek, John Acquaviva, Fergie and Spektre to name just a few, he delivered the now classic “Good Music” tune, with Dan Diamond and John Acquaviva, which – being on Beatport’s Top 5 for 4 months – became a Techno top seller of 2011 and got nominated as Beatport’s Techno track of the year.
In 2013 he keeps on delivering massive club hits like Unreal and Peeps on Definitive Recordings – which got an incredible support from Mark Knight, Mr. White (Sensation) and many others – and another collaboration with John Acquaviva titled Rockdafunkybeatz, and featuring remixes by Olivier Giacomotto and Simon Doty, as well as releasing his debut LP “Decay” on his own label Frequenza.
One of Nihil Young’s most undiscovered tracks of 2013, titled “Til’ Death Do Us Party”, gets selected by Stacey Pullen for his Renaissance Master Series.
Best known as Nihil Young, Mattia secretly creates his side project Less Hate in late 2012, debuting together with Valentina Black, on George Morel’s Groove On Records and Get Physical Music Group’s Kindisch, as well as the classic New York’s King Street Sounds label, delivering just a good handful of tunes which immediately got support from the likes of Sasha, M.A.N.D.Y., Hot Since 82, NTFO, Kolombo, Animal Trainer and many others.
His tune Soul Doubt on Kindisch (Get Physical) – also selected by Hot Since 82 on his BBC Radio One Essential Mix – is seen by many as one of the best tracks of 2013.
Meanwhile he releases on King Street Sounds, remixing the classic jOHNNYDANGEROUs’ Beat That Bitch tune and delivering a few original soulful, nu disco and deep house tunes such as Heal Me, with Valentina Black, I Feel Your Heat – inc. James Silk Remix – and All Night Long, before getting back to Kindisch with his follow-up Yesterday, including 3 different, melodic tracks which really grabbed the attention of many, including Sasha.
