Nick Melton

Real Name:
Nick Melton
Profile:
Artist/producer who co-founded independent London-based record label Bomm Records in 1992 with Ack Tambala and the members of Freak-Quency Generator (who released only one EP with the label). Nick had a couple of earlier releases with the artist name T.N.T. with his then music partner Terry Burton in 1991 and 1992.

Ack and Nick were heavily inspired by the music they had first heard in Goa in 1990 and the next few years which was the start of what was to become "Goa trance" and was therefore the birth of this transitional time dancing to new beat, EBM, rave, techno, italo-disco, and that when morphed by the pioneering DJs of the time became simply "Goa music" or to some "trance dance".

As was the habit of Ack and Nick when releasing their EPs under the artist name M.A.N., was choosing to not use their own names on the label credits, but instead choosing (rather confusingly) to use family and sibling names (or even television football pundits)!

Nick is still writing music under various names including the Temporal Knights and Peripheral Visionary.

Nicknamed "Nick Meltdown" he is the trance dancer photographed in the TIP Records Orange Compilation booklet and before that the punk dancer photographed on the cover of the 1982 UK punk album The Straps.
