Nordic Soul has long been enamored with artistic expression, the creation of music, and the technology that fuses it all together, much to the benefit and evolution of the world of electronica and the underground culture that surrounds it. His healthy obsession began at the age of eleven in Detroit with the gift of his first guitar, got a kick in the ass with the purchase of a keyboard and drum machine during his teenage years, and continues to the present as the king of Seattle techno exists as the founder and director of the Decibel Festival. Known to his friends as Sean Horton, this DJ, producer, performer, and programmer brought a distinct and dirty Detroit flavor with him to Seattle in the mid-90’s and the musical zeitgeist of the city has been forever transformed by his presence.
NORDIC SOUL : Seattle
NORDIC SOUL BIO
Nordic Soul has deeply impacted the electronic community not only through his work for the annual Decibel Festival but also by slaying Seattle dance floors year-round. His emotionally charged sets are infused with live instrumentation and ripe with the mélange of organic and synthesized tones, all riding on top of heavy bass lines. The resulting music is a living, hybrid creature with a rich sense of soul that delights in its own existence. A lover of many musical styles, Nordic Soul’s interest and roots in hip hop, IDM, industrial, and dub contribute to his current musical palette that straight drips techno into the mouths of the waiting audience, thirsty for the unrelenting madness and unabated aural penetration that is electronic music.
Since Nordic Soul's inception in 2003 he's shared the stage with a diverse cross section of international talent, including Simian Mobile Disco, Modeselektor, Moby, Trentemoller, Green Velvet, Derrick May, Radio Slave, Bassnectar, Boys Noize, John Tejada, Monolake, Thomas Fehlmann, Kraak & Smaak, Matthew Dear, Funkstroung, Cobblestone Jazz, Luomo, Miles Dyson, Tipper and Four Tet to name a few.
