Dutch producer and Commercial Suicide golden boy "Nymfo" started djing when he was just 14. He went on to start promoting in his home city of Eindhoven.
Now Amsterdam based, Nymfo has had releases on Commercial Suicide and Metalheadz and collaborated with the likes of S.P.Y and Klute.
We caught up with him to talk about his brand new Double Dutch EP on Commercial Suicide and some other interesting stuff.
01. Nymfo its nice to have you with us. What first got you into drum and bass?
Nymfo : When I was 15 years old I bought a Jungle compilation album and the first tune was from Randall & Andy C and called ‘Sound Control’ Few weeks later I saw Randall was going to play in Eindhoven and I went to that party. He played a 2 hours set and after that I knew I discovered something amazing. It was such an amazing experience and started to do some research to this obscure genre and I’m still doing that.
02. You had a history of promoting and Djing from a young age. How did you start producing?
I wanted to produce for years already, but because I’m a very lazy person it took me a while. After I met Icicle (who was living in Eindhoven around the same time as me), it started pretty quick. He had a lot of studio experience already and showed me some tips and tricks. We started with a lot of collabs, but after a while I started to do more solo stuff as well.
03. How would you describe your sound?
As a producer I produce a sound which is a bit deeper and has got a lot of funk. When I dj I can and will play everything (depends on the crowd off course). I like to drop some new deep stuff, but also some classics and some dance floor tunes.
04. What was the first and last piece of music which you bought?
The first piece of music (which I remember) was Pump Up The Jam by Technotronic on 7 inch. The last piece is the SBTRKT album which I really like.
05. You've just dropped the Double Dutch E.P on Commercial Suicide. What else is on the way from you in 2011?
I’ve got a single for Dispatch music, which is coming out in a few weeks. I also release a tune on Metalheadz for a various artists EP. And when I’m back from my tour in New Zealand I’m going to start on my album for Commercial Suicide. Besides that I will release a few singles, but nothing confirmed yet. The main thing will be the album.
06. What tunes are not out of your box at the moment?
The Enei EP on Critical, some new stuff for Symmetry, a few Nymfo rollers, Dose dubs, SPY dubs, Octane & DLR collabs, Cern beats, BSE & Noisia dancefloor killers, Optiv & BTK bangers.
07. Interesting DnB related story or fact?
Nymfo is not a girl.
