Nicola Bear

Hip-hop / Soul / Dubstep / Drum 'n' Bass

  • Willing to travel abroad

Biography

A refusal to typecast her sound means Nicola can be relied on to get dance floors and gig venues jumping to a vast array of sounds – simply whatever pops into her encyclopaedic musical mind.

Unfazed by the big stage Nicola has warmed up for major acts including Foals and Biffy Clyro as well as alongside the likes of Disclosure and 2ManyDJs. This sultry star-in-the-making has played to sell-out shows of up to twenty thousand people on the Vans Warped Tour in addition to many more at BBC Radio 1 and Ibiza Rocks events. Undisputed first lady at the pioneering Balearic concerts, she effortlessly switches between genres to get bodies moving to indie, hip-hop, trap, rock, dubstep, soul or drum n bass. She’s also no stranger to smaller, VIP style events, working with brands such as Skins, Top Shop and Company Magazine in the past.

A move into production was always on the cards for an individual with such a flair for taste-making. At the end of 2012 her remix of Ima Read by Zebra Katz was signed to Mad Decent and other artists whose tracks she has added her own inimitable style to already include The Milk, Deelite and Desire.

Nicola refuses to typecast her style, instead drawing from her huge range of influences as she sees fit. The results are always exhilarating and in the past twelve months Nicola has plied her trade at Tramlines, Hideout, WHP, Touch The Wood in Rome and legendary indie night Burn Down The Disco.
