Bridging the Gap with DJ Mr. Nick

Weekdays 10pm-Midnight on HPR-1

Nick Yee’s live sets as dj mr.nick earned him a reputation for being able to start in one genre and seamlessly slide into another, moving across musical and cultural boundaries.  Bossa Nova, Latin Jazz, Downtempo, Neo-Soul, and Rare-Groove will take listeners from The Brazilian Experience, through an eclectic assortment of styles and then bridge the musical/age gap into a jazz atmosphere compatible with Seth Markow’s The Real Deal.

His mixes and live sets can be found on his Mixcloud or Soundcloud
