History of Nick Wiz
In an industry where both longevity and productivity can be fleeting, few producers can claim the continued diligence and success of Nick Wiz. Born in NYC, but raised across the river in nearby Teaneck, New Jersey, Nick Wiz has been a Hip-Hop mainstay since his teenage years. Having first impacted the early 90's Hip-Hop scene with his beat contributions to Ecko Unlimited's "Underground Airplay" cassette series (which are now highly collectable); Wiz's sound was (and still is) a considerable part of the early Lyricist Lounge movement. Working with Lounge alum, The Cella Dwellas, on their classic 1996 debut album, further cemented Nick Wiz as an up-and-coming beat phenom. From there his unique fusion of filters, horns, smacking SP-1200 drums and dense bass-lines were soon heard on projects from Mad Skillz, Darc Mind, Chubb Rock, Chino XL, Rakim amongst others.
With this influx of production work coming his way, Nick's New Jersey studio, appropriately named "The Cellar", was constantly flooded with both Hip-Hop's elite talent and the best of the 90's underground scene as well. Today, Nick Wiz produces for all types of artists across the board (from signed to unsigned and everything in between) but also lends his ear and production skills to the television and film realm. He has contributed to movies such as "A Haunted House", "Thunderstruck" and more recently, "Turbo". After many years in the industry, Nick Wiz is still going strong and is always ready to work!
