From turntabling at uni to the Ministry of Sound

Nick Correlli's work has not been unnoticed. He was one of the great minds and creatives behind the remarkable remix of Wonka's fabulous Pure Imagination. Renamed Impure Imagination, it had the Oompa Loompas (and the people) of the modern world shaking and breaking to its beats and loops.
His talk at Cultural eXchanges displayed his love for his job and gave us an insight into what being an EDM, Dance DJ and producer is like in this era.

From turn-tabling at a uni house party, to performing at The Ministry of Sound (London), Pacha (Ibiza) and Space (Miami). Nick has had the DJ's career of a lifetime in just a few short years. He recalled his love for music from a young age, learning how to play on the guitar, being, ironically, oblivious to rave culture and not having a clue with what he wanted to do with his life.

Being a part of the MYNC project allows him to travel the world, exploring the nightlife of the world. It also enables him to blast out the tunes at 4:30 in the afternoon.

Nick's inspirations range from Nine Inch Nails to Daft Punk, and a mix of genres allowed him to experiment with sounds and lyrics to create some pretty darn good rhythms and beats.

My impression from his talk was of a level-headed young DJ, with huge aspirations and a promising future ahead of him within the MYNC project.
