This installment of our Artist Focus Charts has been curated by Taiki Nulight, who's making big moves today on both the live and recorded music fronts.
Following his huge collaboration "Levels" with My Nu Leng, released on Black Butter, the award-winning "IAEATD" collaboration with Herve, "Check Out Time" on AC Slater's new Night Bass imprint and a host of remixes for the likes of Keys n Krates, Chris Lorenzo & Hannah Wants and Paloma Faith, Taiki Nulight, aka London's Erka Chinbayer, returns with this smash, five-track EP "Into Darkness" - his first original release for LA's renowned Dim Mak Records. He's also joined the AM Only family, hinting that we'll see him playing bigger venues sooner rather than later.
On "Into Darkness", Taiki Nulight's dark basslines take no prisoners in this moody, yet playful head bobber, comprising five solo originals. With love across the board from key radio tastemakers, such as Pete Tong, Annie Mac and Mistajam at BBC Radio 1, Taiki Nulight is renowned for his unique melting pot of UK dancefloor influences; circling around Bass, Garage and House, but stamped with a sound that is instantly recognisable as his own.
