Grounded with Nico Masset [069 mix]

Born in Argentina in 1999, Nico's taste for electronic music began from an early age listening to the renowned David Guetta. Little by little he began investigating other genres within electronic music, finding his passion within the sounds of tech house and minimal tech. He currently DJs and produces and has signed tracks with leading labels, Material and Innocent, just to name a few.

"Mixing is beautiful because you can transmit your emotions and feelings through the music that you choose for a special moment."

- Nico Masset

What style of mix have you gone for?
This mix contains a lot of groove, powerful low end and captivating vocals, extremely special in the way they attract the attention of the listener...
