Toronto born, Berlin based artist Nathan Micay has been on quite the run these past few years. His debut EP on esteemed label AD93 (formerly Whities) in 2018 ‘First Casualtiy’ became one of the biggest hits of the dance music circuit, gaining acclaim on best of year lists from Resident Advisor, Mixmag, Dj Mag. He followed this up in 2019 with his debut album ‘Blue Spring’ on Warp Records affiliate label LuckyMe. The album became a landmark release that effortlessly brought together the sounds of trance, electronica and techno, placing them under the roof of the avant-garde. The release received wide acclaim, prominently featured on many end of year lists, this time in dance music and beyond. As a DJ, he has continued to make his mark on the international club circuit, establishing himself as sa regular at key venues such as Berghian Berlin, fabric London, Contact Tokyo and Goodroom NYC. However, in 2020 Nathan truly arrived, offering two bodies of work that nobody saw coming. His surprise second album on LuckyMe ‘The World I’m Going to Hell For’ was released in May 2020. It was created entirely with his string instruments and limited electonics. Pitchfork called it “Uniquely powerful” and it offered fans and listeners alike a new window into Nathan’s growing artistic vision. The album expanded on his cinematic sound and perfectly positioned for the natural move into scoring.
He spent the past two years working on his biggest project yet: a full symphonic hybrid score for the hit HBO series Industry. The series and his music have received acclaim from The Independent, The New York Times and The Hollywood Reporter. Nathan also scored the Netflix series The Last Bus.
