Nick León’s dystopian club music samples the sounds of Florida’s diverse ecosystem, but his style has varied fearlessly along the way. Finding his way into the rap world at a young age, he collaborated with some of the biggest underground rappers in South Florida. He gravitated early towards the Latin sounds coming out of Puerto Rico and Colombia, and as a self-taught producer and DJ in Miami, he felt compelled to shift his focus to his own work. After pivoting towards textural elements and buried melodies, Nick released a handful of projects, one of them being his Aguacero EP under Mexico’s celebrated NAAFI imprint. It encapsulates the growing anxiety in a city threatened by the very things that help make it beautiful, inviting you to dance through the impending storm of uncertainty ushered in by climate change. As of recent, Nick released his highly anticipated Xtasis EP on TraTraTrax which featured DJ Babatr and remixes by Doctor Jeep and Pearson Sound. 2022 also brought a high note for Nick, claiming a production credit on one of the most well-reviewed albums of the year – MOTOMAMI by Rosalía. He also co-produced Kilo by Tokischa and The Martinez Brothers which has been ringing through clubs everywhere in 2023. With coveted spots on a number of festivals and further production for a slew of artists, Nick León’s hands are full and his music is teeming with real life.
