It was just last year that Nina Las Vegas hung up her triple J hat and heralded in a new era in her career. Promising bigger and better things, it wasn’t long after her final triple J set (which we still have on regular rotation) that she announced she was launching her very own record label, and already had a number of budding new artists ready to bring their A-game.
And so, NLV Records was born. Boasting a roster of Swick, Strict Face, Lewis Cancut and Air Max 97 as well as Nina herself, the NLV Records crew released a collective sampler pack to prepare us all for what’s to come in the new year, and whilst we had high expectations, we perhaps weren’t entirely ready for what we were about to hear.
Each and every artist delivered up a tasty cut of their own original music to serve as a taste test (or warning) for what they’ve been working on, and each and every artist blew us away with their huge tracks. From Swick’s enormous R6 Wheel (Dub) to Strict Face’s chilled trap sounds on Rogue Park; the exquisite dance track that is Air Max 97’s Passage and Lewis Cancut’s massive original Systems; even Nina Las Vegas’s own pounding Contagious, we weren’t joking when we said each act absolutely brought it with their tracks.
Now, it’s time for Nina to celebrate, and so she is taking her show on the road. Bringing labelmate Lewis Cancut along for the ride, the pair will be wreaking havoc on capital cities for the rest of the month in what is shaping up to be an absolutely huge tour. Starting off in Sydney on Friday 15th January, then Fremantle, Melbourne, Brisbane and finally Adelaide, things are undoubtedly going to get wild and rightly so.
If there are any remaining tickets for these shows, it’s probably in your best advice to jump on them now. Having caught both of these acts live in action, I can personally guarantee just how much fun it is. Don’t forget your dancing shoes!
