On WEDNESDAY, APRIL 8th, STUNNA presents another special edition of 'THE GREENROOM' on BASSDRIVE radio. In this week's broadcast, we're treated to an exclusive guest mix from talented producer and DJ TIM NICE, as he makes his return to the show.
Educator, DJ, producer and engineer, TIM NICE (aka TIN NICKLESS) was raised on the southwest side of CHICAGO and first experienced dance music while cruising the streets in cars with subs in the trunk and listening to GHETTO HOUSE mix tapes from the likes of DJ FUNK, DJ DEEON, and DJ SLUGO. These early experiences spawned a passion within TIM for all forms of music and led to a deep exploration of both the art of music and the technical aspects of sound.
As a DJ, TIM held a weekly radio show on WNUR 89.3FM at NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY for over 6 years as a member of the 'PARTY TIME SOCIETY' crew. With his collaborators and mentors, SEARCHL1TE and JEEKOOS, they collectively held the show's residency for over 20 years. Currently, TIM frequently collaborates on events around CHICAGO with the DnBiD crew's RENAN and CHRISSY T/CHRISTINA TAMAYO.
TIM is also a youth educator and community advocate. His focus centers upon literacy skills and teaching emotional intelligence through music production to incarcerated and court involved youth at the COOK COUNTY JUVENILE DETENTION CENTER with a nonprofit organization called FREEWRITE ARTS AND LITERACY. TIM also assists at another not-for-profit, CIRCLES AND CIPHERS, which recently built a music studio in CHICAGO's ROGERS PARK neighborhood (a highly diverse region with a large immigrant population). This project is cultivated around restorative justice circles and implements HIP HOP music as a way to better communicate and resolve community issues.
Join us this session of 'THE GREENROOM' as TIM NICE raids his endless crates of bass music and presents an extended guest mix created especially for this week's broadcast. Tune in!
