IN THE SILENT DISCO . . .
Nicholas (Live!) Court was born in Western Massachusetts and by the age of 8 moved to Virginia’s Chesapeake Bay area with his mother, stepfather, and brother. He and his brother were raised between parts of Virginia Beach/ Norfolk, and Brooklyn, New York where his biological father lived. Growing up in the tip of the south traveling back and forth to New York’s Pen Station or Port Authority is where the inspiration for this producer extraordinaire’s years of original and ground breaking urban production were developed.
With years also spent in one of the west coasts most musically influential areas experiencing San Francisco’s mission districts then heavy poverty and gang activity was a complete opposite view from either of the not so easy walks of life he was a custom to in the east coast. This life experience is what has created his diverse ear for music and his “Hard Work No Play” ethics that set this producer ahead of the rest. Live! Has produced for hundreds of hip hop, R&B, and reggae artists including: Buckshot of Black moon, Moke&Tone, Grafh, Slash of unusual suspects, Block McCloud of Brooklyn academy, Roosta & Prowla of Fear Nuttin Band, Stash, Rap-p feat Ty Nitty of infamous mobb, Tony benefit of Earatic Statik, all of Hardtimes Records artist roster 2001-2012, Nature, C-Rayz Walz, Vorheez, Hostyle of Screwball, Young Dirty Bastard, Whosane, the whole Comparable To None Entertainment Roster 2002-2009 and much more.
One of his most recent projects, a collaboration with Albe Back and 2dopeboyz.com titled Raphael Dela Ghetto in which he Produced all but two track’s was well received with over 10,000 Downloads and numerous blog mention’s. Plan to see, but most of all hear a lot from him in the near future.
