After hitting the online sales charts, ultimately the track got featured on BBC Radio 1's Essential mix. Tracks on following releases like 'Obsessive', 'Dust' and 'Gone' helped to establish Nelsen's characteristic sound. As a remixer Nelsen is praised for his ability to truly add a new dimension to original tracks. His remixes from the Kaiser Chiefs track 'Love's Not a Competition', Estelle's 'American Boy' and Sharam Jey's classic '4 Da Loverz' are very popular among DJ's and have been getting airplay as well. DJing Nelsen prefers mixing at a fast pace and is able to do this in a smooth way by playing custom made edits only.
This gives a subtle but unique - high energy - twist to his DJ sets. He has a clear idea about what he doesn’t like in music. His DJ sets contain "NO anonymous noise & NO ongoing beats". Nelsen has been DJing mostly throughout The Netherlands at various venues, such as Tivoli, Doornroosje, Studio 80, De Winkel van Sinkel, Ocean Diva and De Rechter.
Nelsen has been resident DJ at the 'Verse Stroom' parties and played at various radio shows, including 'Electronation Radio' on Kink FM and the renowned show 'Tiësto's Club Life' on Radio 538. influences Pascal Arbez (Vitalic, Dima); Deck d’Arcy (Phoenix); Thomas Bangalter (Daft Punk, Stardust); Matthew Bellamy (Muse); Bernd Burhoff (Dune); Ben Daglish; Jean-Benoît Dunckel (Air); David Dewaele (Soulwax, 2 Many DJ’s); Stephen Dewaele (Soulwax, 2 Many DJ’s); Oliver Froning (Dune); Farid Gharadjedaghi (RMB); Marion Gleiss (Marusha); Nicolas Godin (Air); George Harrison (Beatles); Guy-Manuel de Homem-Christo (Daft Punk); Rob Hubbard; Chris Hülsbeck; Klaus Jankuhn (Members of Mayday, Love Committee); David Robert Jones (David Bowie); Anthony Lees; John Lennon (Beatles); Maximilian Lenz (WestBam, Mr. Y, Love Committee); Jeff Lynne (Electric Light Orchestra); Rolf Maier-Bode (RMB); Thomas Mars (Phoenix); Christian Mazzalai (Phoenix); Laurent Mazzalai (Phoenix); Paul McCartney (Beatles); Wim Mertens; Giorgio Moroder; Jens Oettrich (Dune); Stuart Price (Jacques lu Cont, Thin White Duke, Les Rhythmes Digitales, Paper Faces, Zoot Woman); Alain Quême (Alan Braxe, Stardust); Don Pepijn Schipper (Don Diablo); Felix Stallings Jr. (Felix da Housecat); Yann Tiersen; Stefaan Vandenberghe (Dr. Lektroluv) Read more on Last.fm.
