Listen Now: SIX AM Guest: Nick Payne

Over the years, he has developed his sound through exposure and experimentation, always leaning towards the darker, psychedelic, sci-fi, and edgier side of techno. His music is focused on moving feet, and he has released tracks on several labels. He is also the founder of the well-received imprint Tachyon Audio, which focuses on techno sounds that are designed to fill dark, sweaty dance floors with large, high-quality sound systems.

Nick continues to push the boundaries of techno using a calculated combination of cutting-edge techniques in sound synthesis, rhythm production, music theory, technology, and soundscape design. He always keeps dance floors on their toes.

Look out for a few releases from Nick and Inhabitants this summer and fall, including Nick’s upcoming single “Volgen” on Tachyon Audio in May. More info:…ne-volgen-ep
