ItIsWhatItIs Brings you GRANT NELSON (SwingCity/Nice'n'Ripe) to kick start our 2012 of with a bang!
Grant Nelson is heralded as the Godfather of UK Garage due to his numerous club hits on his Nice 'n' Ripe label in the early 90's. It was his sound along with a few others that gave birth to the then known as 'Sunday Scene' which went on to become UK Garage.
He also produced under the name Wishdokta from 1990-1993 when he was making Hardcore / Drum N Bass for the legendary label Kickin Records.
In 97 he started using the alter-ego Bump & Flex and began to produce UK 2 Step. He delivered some of the scenes biggest records by far including the incredible "Funk On Ah Roll" by James Brown.
Nelson has always remained a house head since his early Nice 'n' Ripe days and continues to do so to the present with his excellent Swing City label that consistently delivers top drawer house music.
The event will be held in the main room at the most respected venue in Leeds THE FAVERSHAM, all equipped fully with a Funktion 1 sound system ;-) www.thefaversham.com
