Nathan Woods is a young, upcoming DJ from Leeds, who is currently holding down two residencies for Nottingham Trent Students’ Union and LuvRhythm Events, whilst running his own event brand “direct.”. Nathan has played in venues across the city, such as Rock City, KINK, Market Bar, Calluna, Bar Eleven, The Bowery, BOX & The Lacehouse, as well as at Nottingham’s longest running student club night, “Climax” at The Level.
Starting DJ’ing from the age of 18, after taking inspiration from DJs such as Monki and OC & Verde, Nathan developed a passion for all things house, techno & disco. Within such a short space of time, Nathan has supported major artists in the scene such as Jacky, Del-30, KETTAMA, PAX, George Smeddles, Elliot Adamson and Cloonee.
Nathan has performed at some of the most well loved venues across the country; The Faversham in Leeds & South Nightclub in Manchester being two of his personal favourites. Nathan was also invited to headline LSMix’s “The Showcase” event at the Old Red Bus Station in Leeds after producing their most popular guest mix to date. This guest mix allowed Nathan to secure his first festival booking at El Dorado 2018, alongside names such as Detroit Swindle, DnB legend Wilkinson and Chris Lorenzo to name just a few.
After appearing twice on Orthodox Events’ “Deck Sessions” Livestream and winning Movement Events’ competition to support Jacky, Nathan appeared at Club Mission in Leeds this summer supporting Del-30 to a packed out crowd. Nathan also founded his own events company, “direct.” in September 2018, booking KETTAMA to headline their launch party in the intimate Bar Eleven. As well as this, Nathan appeared twice with touring party starters Cirque Du Soul at the famous Rock City.
All of this ensured 2018 was a huge year for Nathan, with plenty more in store for 2019.”
