Nick Law - Ministry Of Sound Classics Mix
Sun 30th Dec, 2012 ITM-FMin
Ministry Of Sound’s Classics party has become a New Year’s Day fixture in Sydney, and it’s taking over the ivy again in 2013 for a feel-good kick-off to the year. This will be the event’s seventh run, and MOS has pulled together a stellar line-up for the occasion. Taking over two areas of the ivy, there’ll be classics from across the spectrum. Here’s how Sydney stalwart Nick Law will be playing it.
What is the one record you’d guess you’ve played more times than any other?
Probably one of the big classics such as You Got The Love by The Source featuring Candi Staton or Rhythim Is Rhythim’s Strings of Life.
Since we’re talking classics, is there a particular stretch of time in dance music’s history that you consider a kind of ‘golden age’?
Not really. I’ve enjoyed all the different times and sounds over the years but I suppose first hearing house music in the mid/late eighties and then the early raves and parties here in Sydney in the early nineties was pretty special! The mid-nineties was also a highlight with the emergence of ‘deep house’. Being a part of the explosion of house/dance music culture has been an amazing experience but I still hear tracks today that get me as excited as I did 20 years ago!
What’s the plan for your set at Classics on New Year’s Day?
I’m not sure yet. I’m a massive fan of LNTG and really looking forward to hearing him play. In my opinion he is one of the most talented DJ/producers in the world (and has been producing fantastic music for many years as DJ HMC), so I will probably base what I do/play around when I’m DJing in relation to him.
