Volume 1 of the series brought the talented DJ Nilson Diaz from Toronto, Canada to our London decks; launching this event at the highest standard with a great selection of exceptional salsa tunes with a good pinch of cha cha and bachata which kept the crowd grooving till the end. Opening Dj Jamil Bacha opened the floor wonderfully and warmed the atmosphere from the start. 


Dj Nilson Diaz

Born in the Dominican Republic, Dj Nilson Diaz Gomez arrived in Canada in 1998 and brought with him just a few salsa records, cds, and a deep love and passion for the flavour of the music and dance. Being a professional dancer in Puerto Plata, he also had a strong feel for the unique and ‘danceable’ rhythms the music had to offer. It was that same love and passion for salsa that spawned his professional DJ career in Toronto in 2001. Today, DJ Nilson’s rare and beautiful salsa music collection consists of over 4000 Vintage Lps and Cds! His favourite styles are New York and Puerto Rican, both new and old school, Boogaloo, Latin Soul and Latin Jazz.
