Summertime has well and truly set in here in Wellington. The days are long, hot and the city is happy. We at Back on Track and Ekim think this deserves a celebration..

Saturday 5 March sees a very special event taking place on Cuba Street, a day party of epic proportions. Ekim will be closing it's gates to the public and throwing them open for you to come and dance, drink and eat in the awesome surroundings. Extra sound is being set up for the day thanks to the team at Audio Avenue, a bar will be onsite serving tantilisingly cool refreshments and a free BBQ will be filling your bellies.

Nico Stojan is a global citizen, a Berlin native and a devoted eater of Ayurvedic snacks. Chasing the sun, he spends his time between the fast-paced urban spaces of Europe and wild islands in the South Pacific which smell of manuka honey and exotic plants.

Before he found his home in House, he had another one in hip-hop. Here he nurtured his love of jazz and soul and discovered his talent for working the crowd. But it was the vibrant mood of a growing Berlin club scene and a residency at Bar25 that would change his musical direction and bring him a new set of listeners that would soon become like family. These are the ones who laugh a lot, hug regularly and travel often, and they’ve taken him everywhere; to the big festivals that always sell out to the smaller ones that never do. Here he plays warm sets, hands in the air sets, lush sets. Sometimes he wears a turban while doing so.

In the studio he appreciates the mix of analogue and digital which is the basis of his long awaited album ‘Twisted Manners’ (to be released in 2015). Calling in the cavalry along the way, these passing poets and faraway instruments helped him to achieve his visions and create a sound for the right now. A sound to make its way into the hearts of all the other urban/tropical gypsies that exist out there.
Yet the old hip-hop guy in him still speaks. Plays vinyl when he can or uses digital technology to bring the right frequencies to the people. Whatever the method, he plays it like an instrument and plays the crowd like one too, almost as if being channelled by something that we can’t quite touch. One of the dreamiest realists that you'll get to know, he understands that magic hides within our reach, you just have to pull it from the dust. And he does his best with this dust-pulling stuff. For who? For us...
