biography
NICOLAY is best known as the producing half of The Foreign Exchange (the other half being Phonte Coleman of Little Brother), whose debut album Connected (BBE Records, 2004) made a huge impact on the international underground hip-hop and soul scene. The Foreign Exchange was featured on MTV, VH1, BET and NPR, and Connected quickly reached #1 on CMJ's Hip-Hop chart. Since then, Nicolay has produced for Little Brother, Supastition, Masta Ace, Strange Fruit Project and Zion I and remixed tracks for Roy Ayers, Bob James, Candy Dulfer and many others. He has released several albums under his own name, most notably City Lights Volume 1.5 (BBE, 2005) and Here (BBE, 2006). Nicolay, a native of The Netherlands, was awarded an Artist Visa for the United States and launched his own label, Nicolay Music Recordings, in 2007. Time:Line by Nicolay & Kay, the label's first full length release (february 2008), was received by fans fellow artists and critics alike as one of the best new releases in hip-hop/rap. Next, Nicolay and Phonte are gearing towards the release of The Foreign Exchange’s widely anticipated sophomore album, Leave It All Behind (due fall 2008).

Nicolay - Love your music! Memory Lane was a lucky discovery. Excellent work!

So, I want to get some more ears on your music. Do me a favor and hold off on any uploads for the next week or so. Let's see if we can get Memory Lane to the home page. Cool?

If you haven't read it yet, check out this article:

It's pretty useful. Just remember, don't delete any tracks. Please?!?!

Keep up the great music!

If there's any upset, it shouldn't turn against you. It's like I said: someone should write a proper manual once. I'm not an Artist, but for all I know, if you upload a song with a title that already exists in your song list, than the existing song gets updated.

Although I can, i wont first bump City Sounds. Your listeners might think I'm taking advantage of the situation. But I will definitely bump it eventually.

If only I knew these identical sounding songs were just a mistake. i could have warned you not to delete any of them, just re-upload the bad one. I love the new City Sounds, but the people who bumped the previous version might become a little upset about their loss of points. Oh well, I guess somebody should just write a proper T61 manual one day.

Well, it's surprising that Dy-no-mite drew so little attention. I really enjoyed the song. I wouldn't have bumped it if i didn't. I like the repetition of the funky theme and the dragging rhythm. The phone call at the end was annoying at first, but after i listened to what the man on the phone said, I thought it was appropriate and funny. There's only one thing that puzzles me: why did you upload two (almost?) identically songs: dy-no-mite and City Sounds?
