FEATURE: Fave Five Albums Of 2011: Nico De Ceglia from BBC Radio 1/Hyena Stomp/Rebirth Records

London based Nico De Ceglia is a visionary Italian music geek who makes full use of all things music. Whether it’s as a DJ, producer, journalist, A&R, club promoter or radio show host, there isn’t much that he hasn’t
tried his hand at.

He's been scouting and pre-selecting for Pete Tong's legendary show on BBC Radio 1 since 2001, his vital job is to keep him informed on the more alternative and underground sounds.

In the studio Nico's been busy with his partner in crime Severino (from Horse Meat Disco) under the name Hyena Stomp. The duo have remixed DJ Hell, The " Bears, Tevo Howard & Tracey Thorn as well having released own stuff on Rebirth Records. Check Nico out on Facebook and Soundcloud. Here's his thoughts on the top 5 albums of 2011;

"Lots of great music this year and it's difficult to squeeze it all in a
Top 5. These 5 albums are just some of those that have been in heavier
rotation from my speakers in the past 12 months. I would need at least a
Top 50."

PJ Harvey - Let England Shake
"A journey through the spectres of England. I love PJ."

Tom Waits - Bad As Me
"7 years wait for another splendid album by this legend."

Danger Mouse & Daniele Luppi - Rome
"First of all I'm from Rome so I like the title. Second and most important
it has a perfect nostalgic cinematic touch."

Locussolus - Locussolus
"If there is a name that can manipulate disco and surrounding in a
superior way that's DJ Harvey."

Veronica Falls - Veronica Falls
"Gothic. Haunted. Melancholic. Punk-indie-pop."
