Nick D’s insatiable appetite for new sounds has made him one of this country’s most well-travelled music minds, continually leaving his current base in Tokyo to take a very hands-on approach to music discovery.  

Two of his most fertile sources of new music in recent years have been India and Pakistan. Ahead of Weird Night Out, a party his globally-minded dance music collective Weird Together are throwing on Friday 1 July, Nick presents a primer on Pakistani and Indian electronic music.
