Artist Biography by

Nick Taylor is one of the best-known trance artists in Australia, where he lives in Byron Bay. In 1991, he began working in Tokyo with Tsuyoshi Suzuki as Blissed, and recorded an EP (Blissed) and an album (Rite Of Passage) which was released on POD Communications two years later. The pair consequently became Prana when they moved to London in 1993. Taylor worked on the first Prana album, Cyclone (1996) before returning to Australia where he began recording under the names Snake Thing (for TIP Records) and Reflector. After contributing a remix of ‘Scarab’ to Prana’s second album Geomantik in September 1997 he released the EP Scorch which signalled a move towards a psychedelic breakbeat sound. During the same year he also mixed the compilation Feel The Noize for Matsuri.
