Hailing from Amersham in Bucks, Nick Hill AKA Lomax has always had a very musical background. A piano player from a young age, and with a degree in music behind him, he was first introduced to drum & bass by the sounds of LTJ Bukem and John B back in 1997, and from then on he began producing in 2000.
As the original member of cult drum and bass collective HoldTight, Nick had several releases on such labels as Industry, Renegade and React to name just a few, Nick has been extremely busy on the production front since 2003, when HoldTight's first two tunes, 'Dirty Habits' and '925' were championed by Andy C and licensed for the Nightlife compilation and J Majik's Fabric mix CD. HoldTight were also responsible for the much talked about official D&B remix of Candi Staton's dance classic 'You've Got The Love', remixing the UK hip hop anthem 'UK Bubblers' by Skitz, Rodney P and Skeme, and also remixing for Hospital Records covering Cyantific's 'Output'. Following HoldTight's album release, Lomax spread his wings and went solo, pursuing a more minimal sound.
Having released on Critical, Bingo, Integral and Ram Records (with Xample), and produced one of the tunes of 2007, 'Artisan' on Bounce records, Lomax signed exclusively to Ram Records in 2008 and has since gone to number 1 in the dnb chart with both his releases, including the huge 'Faith Massive EP'. With support and interest from many of the big players in Drum & Bass and Radio 1 DJs, big things are lined up in 2009 with several forthcoming releases and including an album project with Xample.
