Bellic's official Facebook page cites as his “favorite” music acts Deadmau5, the Expendables, Faithless, and Cypress Hill. These do not give a round understanding of his own sound, however. The music included on “Bellic” is soaked in jazz, blues and drum 'n' bass, with an overarching basis on electronica. His tones are reminiscent of Moby's titanic “Play” record, in that the “Bellic” LP is endlessly classy, cool, and smooth. Fans of electronic music from before the dubstep craze will find a good friend in the Nicko Bellic record.
Bellic hails from the oft-underrated music hotbed of Salt Lake City, Utah. He has been an outspoken advocate for independent music and liberal digital distribution. His fans are likewise outspoken as well as loyal, drawn to his creative use of instrumentation, back beats, and cleverly chosen samples. The high production value of “Bellic” shows clearly that his talent for working out a melody line is paired also with ample chops as a studio engineer.
Previous to the present release of “Bellic,” Nicko Bellic was known for his collaboration with WorthIsBorn and DopeThought, DropInOcean, which was published on the SLC-based MakeMind record label. In contrast to the groovy, brass-filled tunes of his self-titled LP, DropInOcean has built a reputation for their rare blend of R 'n' B, EDM and hip-hop music, many of the best attributes have been carried into his solo project.
“Bellic” by Nicko Bellic is available online worldwide. Get in early.
