Nick Bong is a Singaporean selector and music-maker heavily involved with the Ice Cream
Sundays daytime party collective, music-centric bar Offtrack, record store The Analog Vault and its label, TAV Records.
Starting out on the local circuit in 2018, he’s been cutting his teeth with regular gigs at venues Upstairs and more recently Offtrack, with appearances at festivals like Garden Beats and opening slots for touring DJs as varied as Tornado Wallace, Dreamcast Moe and Interstellar Funk under his belt too. As Bongomann, he has released music on labels Botanic Records, Darker Than Wax, Fauve Records and FuFu Records, while also contributing mixes for platforms Fauve Radio, NWHR, Upstairs / Downstairs, Mixmag Asia, Mogra Radio and Kiosk Radio.
Always catching moods and chasing a flow, genre-fluid Bongo views music as a conversation, so who knows what’s going to be said?
“Nick expresses himself through a wide spectrum of more dreamy and ambient nuances to straight up dancefloor hedonism. His productions are as meticulously thought out as his DJ sets, striking a fine balance that includes crafty layering, analogue-wizardry and sensational grooves.” – Mixmag Asia, Artist Feature, 2021
“Introspective, explorative and positive in tone, the genre-gliding music feels extraordinarily timely given the underground's glorious reawakening, the scene's renewed vigour encapsulated in the near endless bars of cascading rhythms and melodies.” - Mixmag Asia, Release Feature, 2022
