Leading abstract artist, Nicolas Dixon has launched a limited edition run of slipmats featuring his unique designs, exclusively for Christmas 2019. Available now from £30 (plus worldwide post and packaging) from his online shop, these eye-catching, contemporary designs come in black or white, showcasing Dixon’s trademark biomorphic shapes with vivid bursts of colour, and will add a stylish talking point for any DJ wanting to update their turntables’ aesthetics.
The work of Leeds-born Nicolas Dixon has a longstanding connection with electronic music. He was commissioned to re-work Pacha’s iconic cherries for its 40th anniversary, he was enlisted by Edible Records as Artistic Director, and he was part of the ‘Street To Street’ campaign coordinated by Last Night a DJ Saved My Life, which saw Dixon and others, such as Nightmares On Wax, undergo charity activities in Tanzania. Most recently, he designed the fascia and roof terrace of Octan – the newest addition to Ibiza’s club scene – and the interior of Airstream Events’ 1970’s trailer complete with world-leading TPI type MFR sound system.
Dixon’s brand new slipmats will be a hit with professional and amateur DJs alike. They were first exhibited in September 2019 at BLK BX in Leeds’ premier shopping centre, Trinity, alongside the work of leading New York graffiti artist, Sen-1. Together with a range of Dixon’s latest work of sought-after canvases and limited-edition prints, the fresh slipmat designs were showcased as part of a collaborative project consisting of Nicolas Dixon custom-designed Mastersounds turntable, Idokodo DJ booth and Radius 4 Mixer. This one-off set will also be available to buy from Dixon’s online shop towards the end of 2019.
Nicolas Dixon is a versatile artist whose unique vision can bring anything to life. His commissions have featured in a variety of places from prestigious restaurants such as Arras in York and Matt Healy X The Foundry in Leeds (led by the award-winning Masterchef finalist), to working for Disney on a custom painted, BB-8 droid to celebrate the launch of Stars Wars movie, The Force Awakens. Dixon also custom-painted a bike for the UK’s leading manufacturer, Ribble, following the Pro Cycling Team finishing as bronze medallists in the 2019 World Championships.
Tech-savvy lovers of music and design can snap up an original Nicolas Dixon slipmat for £30 (plus post and packaging) this Christmas here.
