Nick Yee

Host, Bridging the Gap

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both southern California and Honolulu.  In college he started DJ-ing around town, playing long acid jazz and bossa nova sets at various lounges under the name dj mr.nick.  He started to incorporate down tempo and electronic music into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy.

In addition to his club life, Nicholas has spent the last 7 years as a DJ for UH Mānoa’s KTUH, running one of its most popular radio shows The Jet Set. He has also served at KTUH in various capacities, including manager and educator.

Tonight on Bridging the Gap will be loosely based around the music of Mardi Gras in New Orleans, with a lot of brass and a little Jazz and World Music thrown into the mix.

Tonight's session of Bridging the Gap will lean a little more in the world music direction, with new music from Banda Magna (pictured) and harpist Amelia Romano.

Happy President's Day! Tonight's show will feature yet more eclectic music... but I've got to throw in some James Brown in honor of Clyde Stubblefield who played the break on Funky Drummer.

Tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap will focus heavily on party heavy Latin tracks pulling from Cuba, Spain, Mexico and beyond.

Tonight’s session of Bridging the Gap will centered around Kamasi Washington’s version of Cherokee… meaning we’ll explore the “tip of the iceberg” of groove based, psychedelic jazz.

Here we go with the 2nd session of Bridging the Gap at it's new time.

It's finally here!  The 1st show at the new late night, but weekly time slot. It's also Valentine's Day so I'm filling the show with songs about love or possibly heartbreak.  Just in case you were looking for it you can find more information on the program realignment on our website.
