Nick Rushton-Givens


I make microtonal originals and covers, with lots of different influences. Sometimes I do groovy stuff and sometimes I do ambient-ish stuff. I'm usually trying to do something new. I love trying to create new or unfamiliar vibes with my music, and mixing old ideas with new ones.







What is music to you? What does it give you?

Music is a way to make a vibe, and make you to groove.

What is your music dream?

To make a living firstly, but also to travel to different places around the world to learn about different music traditions.

If you could change the world - what would you start with?

I'm not too sure but probably UBI and universal housing first, paid for with taxes on the top 1 or 0.1 percent.

Which is the most memorable song from your childhood?

First one that came to mind was Barbie Girl by Aqua, so I guess that one lmao

Who are your favorite musical artists or bands?

Xotla, Hailu Mergia, Krar Collective, Dr. N. Ramani, 9m88, to name a few

What inspires you to make music?

Being able to create all kinds of different vibes.

What is the message you want to send with your music?

Being weird is fire.

How do you feel when you perform in front of an audience?

I don't usually perform in front of an audience anymore, because now I'm mostly producing electronic music. Usually quite nervous.

What do you think of Drooble?

I'm new but it seems like soundcloud meets reddit.

Do you support your local scene as a fan? How?

I live in Milton, so the music scene is virtually non-existent.

What qualities should a musician nowadays have in order to get their music heard by a larger audience?

I don't really know, but sometimes doing covers of meme songs works better than other things for me.

Share some awesome artists that we’ve never heard of.

Literally every answer for question 5.
