Hi, I’m Nic Manshon. Creativity, for me, started back when I was drawing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and entering Mother’s Day competitions for KTV. I always loved art as a kid and did it as a subject throughout my schooling career.  If I were to be totally honest, I never saw a career in creativity in high school, even though art was my highest marked subject.  Hence, I went to study personal training straight after high school and thereafter worked for Virgin Active for a while. Soon enough I realized that it wasn’t for me. Nonetheless, I believe nothing is lost with learning. After having these feelings to change my career, I started exploring creativity again.

My passion and love for music begin at the age of 12 when I got introduced to different styles of music and started building myself in the radio industry at the age of 12. Since then I started learning to DJ and to produce music and began DJ'ing professionally at the age of 17 and built myself up. At the age of 20 I studied music and from there started to create my own music and my own unique sound. This has benefited me in so many different ways. I now DJ at all the different clubs and venues and have played alongside the likes of Sketchy Bongo, DJ Kent, AKA, Shortstaw, The Kiffness. My production has grown over the years and my recent single "Emotions" has just been released under a record label named Scuf Records. My goal is to create my own sound and to make a difference in people's lives with my music and to connect with them and to work with various artists locally as well as internationally.
