... is the moniker of berlin-based and hamburg-born Nicolas Sheikholeslami who is also a member of the live & recording projects "Circuit Diagram" and "Spiritczualic Enhancement Center". Eclectic are his musical interests and so are his dj-sets & radio shows. Researches that than turned mixes covered regions like Turkey, Ethiopia, Indonesia, South Africa, Sudan and Somalia. The latter research resulted in a teaming up with New York’s "Ostinato Records" to co-produce the compilation "Sweet As Broken Dates - Lost Somali Tapes From The Horn Of Africa", which just recieved a nomination for best historical album on this years "Grammy Awards". Besides mixes and sets based on the region of it’s origin Çaykh also likes to play sets of music that tend to rather concentrate on a certain red thread or attribute that he senses in the selected music, regardless of it being spiritual Jazz, modular synth freak outs, or so-called traditional music from any region of the world.
For later this year his first 3-track solo vinyl release is scheduled on Manchester’s "Natural Sciences" label.
... is a nineties kid born during the Internet-age, whose equal love and defiance of technology generate the contrasts of the music he presents to the world. One day dreamy, one day melancholy, one day happy, one day angry. Get yourself lost in the web, from leftfield electronics to ambient, from UK 90's dreamy sounds to french cloudy trap beats, because everything happens so fast on the network.
His latest published work was the soundtrack for 4 videos inspired by the varied atmospheres of rural and urban Japan. Check them out here vimeo.com/showcase/601355
