    Float away to a beach-side dance floor with the summery sounds of Sydney producer Nyxen. Grab a cocktail, watch the sunset, feel good.

    Tell us about your music. How did you develop your sound?
    The sound of my music is heavily influenced by my background playing guitar and djing.
    It's all about the contrast between dreamy and groovy, I've just taken my two favourite things and fused them.
     
    What’s your greatest source of inspiration for making music?
    I know this has probably been said by every producer in the last 4 years, but watching the development of Flume's sound and his musical journey has been a huge inspiration for me. It's really cool seeing someone from my city doing something and making it all their own, it's a reminder to just do you. 
     
    What can punters expect from a Nyxen live show?
    At a Nyxen DJ show you can expect trippy, funky and groovy tunes. I like to play music that I'm loving at the time, so could be electronica, house or anything that makes me want to dance!
    I'm really keen to start creating a Nyxen live show!
    I just started a track and my main thought behind it is "how would this sound live?".
    It's pretty early days for the live show but I'd definitely want to incorporate live guitar, vocals and keys. So watch this space!
     
    What’s the best advice you’ve been given and who was it from?
    Something that really resonated with me was what my mum told me. At the time, I was working a 9-5 job at an insurance company, and one day she called me and pretty much told me to quit. She just wanted me to focus on my music, and to find a job that let me put my energy into what I really love (thanks mum). 
     
    What Australian track would you play to cheer up someone who was crying?
     
    What Australian track would you play to someone to make them cry?
     
    You’re the DJ at a party. The dance floor is pumping. What Australian track do you put on next?
     
    What was the last local gig you went to? How was it?
    The last live gig I went to was at Newtown Social. I watched The Garden put on the most intense live show i've ever seen. There weren't that many people there but everyone was really into it. The guys were swinging from the roof (no joke) it was insane!
     
    Tell us about the bands or people in the Sydney music community that inspire you.
    Go Freek have been getting behind me since I first started making tunes, and their attitude towards other artists is what makes them so inspiring. To have two guys that have been making sick music and touring Australia and USA actually take the time to give advise to young artists is such an admirable attitude, and their willingness to share feedback and be genuinely kind is contagious and so inspiring.
     
    What are your plans for the rest of 2016?
    I'm currently on tour with KLP playing some venues along the East Coast of Australia for KLParty!
    When we finish that I really want to work on creating a live show and heaaaps of new tunes.
    I've almost finished a few so you'll definitely be seeing them up on my Unearthed profile very soon!
