Chicago’s Anthony Nicholson has a storied history in dance music. For decades he has been crafting some of the best house music around on labels such as his own Circular Motion and Infinite Audio, as well as on legendary imprints Prescription and Clairaudience, adopting a host of aliases along the way. Now landing on Brooklyn staple toucan sounds for his latest release, the DJ/producer links up with Brandon Markell Holmes and Chris Rob for expansive, jazz-tinged soulful house single, ‘You’ (Release Date: May 31st, 2024).

A bonafide Chicago house fixture and then some — Anthony Nicholson aka Miquifaye is equal parts dance-music veteran and innovator, rooted in the movement of elevating organic sounds through electronic music. An experienced founder/head of multiple labels (Clairaudience, Circular Motion, Blak Muzik), unique DJ talent, seasoned selector-programmer, & lifelong producer – Anthony has spent the better part of the last 30 years dedicating himself to creating one of the most sought-after catalogues in dance, spanning the finest elements of deep house, techno, jazz, funk, and disco.

His discography is a labyrinth of deep pleasures, body rituals, and sonic exploration that has led him to countless landmark collaborations (Osunlade, Glenn Underground, Joe Claussell, Francois K, Boo Williams, Ron Trent, Roy Ayers, Paulinho Dacosta, Bobby Lyle, William Kurk, Chris Rob, & more), releases on the most esteemed labels of dance music (Jazz Diaries,Yoruba Recordings, NDATL Muzik, Schema, King Street, Guidance, Compost, Peace Frog, Strictly Jaz Unit , Visions, Neroli, Prescription, Sacred Rhythm, Sonar Kollektiv, Laws of Motion, Ubiquity and many others) and fervent support from the best of the house underground.

Anthony’s unique brand of fearless experimental musicality and genre-less freedom is a rarity: “Never compromise on presenting High Art to the audience; understanding an Artist must express without fear is essential.”
