▉ Niko T (Tilanbiik)
NIKO T is a Dj & producer from Marseille, who started playing and producing music at the age of 19. At this time Niko was captured by an infamous French core genre which lead to a more deepened interest and inspiration by the French underground movement. Lego, Desert Storm, Sound Conspiracy and Mental Resistance are a few of the electronic music movements that shaped the artist that he is today.
Following a solid 10 year involvement in the French underground scene, Niko has evolved fruitfully, embracing new horizons and opportunities up until joining his beloved sister (La Gosse) in London.
Niko went from organising mind blowing events in France for thousands of party enthusiasts to playing alongside his talented sister in London for some of the most popular clubs in town. Fire, Area and Aquarium are a few of the venues that set the pace for Niko.
From the year 2000 Niko fronted the "TRAFYKE SOUND SYSTEM" in Marseille for a mammoth ten years, playing and organising underground events in countries including Italy, France, Portugal and Spain. He crafted a unique sound and party environment followed by many around Europe.
▉ Thomas James (Unwanted)
Since an early age, Thomas James’ musical journey has taken him through punk, metal, hip-hop, breakbeats, funk, soul and electronica. Analogue cassette tapes, fanzines and the whole DIY aspect of music scenes has always been a strong interest to him. He then started to become inspired by more contemporary styles of electronic music.
He began to buy more vinyl and decided to start DJing from his growing interest in house and techno. Artists such as Steve Bug, Ricardo Villalobos, Andrew Weatherall and Craig Richards have all added to his inspiration. Encouragement from friends gave him the drive to quickly gain his mixing skills and form his own style. A vinyl purist, Thomas James' sets currently weave between disco, deep house and techno.
Thomas co-promotes and DJ's the 'Unwanted' parties that have sprung from venues in Surrey to respected hot spots in East London over the course of 2011. The Unwanted nights hold strong residencies in the Horse & Groom, the Star of Bethnal Green and more recently the Cornershop in Shoreditch. Together with the Unwanted 'family' he has played supporting roles with the likes of Lone, Italoboyz, The Revenge, Casper C, The Boogie Cartel and Tayo, across major London venues such as XOYO, Cargo and the Big Chill House.
A keen graphic designer, Thomas James has built a strong identity to the Unwanted brand and now, together with the Unwanted Family, wants to take their records and promotion further to new cities, night spots and like minded people.
