Wordy Soundsystem (Nicholas on Drums)


The only DJ to win the China DMC three times, DJ Wordy stands head and shoulders above his peers. He is China’s first truly international DJ, shattering stereotypes of Chinese youth culture by rocking crowds from Berlin to Jamaica. His technical skills in the DJ booth are awe inspiring and he possesses an unnatural ability to control the dance floor.

Wordy’s 2011 album with Soulspeak, ‘WordySoulspeak’, was met with critical acclaim and laid the foundations for Chinese experimental Hip Hop. In 2013 Wordy was invited by Beats to tour China with Dr.Dre, Kendrick Lamar & LeBron James. Never one to rest on his laurels, Wordy has stormed into 2016 with a brand new live show!

Joining him at Arkham is the Australian drummer Nicholas Mcbride, founder of Sydney’s Jazzgrove - one of the cities most successful music organisations. With Wordy’s turntablism, and Mcbride’s insane ability to craft mesmerising percussion, the duo are going to blow the roof of Arkham!
