In 1999, Nyce moved to Philly and quickly realized his full potential as a DJ. While attending college for business finance he worked at the popular Center City fixture, Armand’s Records, where he linked up with local promoters and veteran Philly DJs. A promoter landed him a Saturday night slot on Drexel radio’s 91.7 WKDU where Nyce was able to spread his style and name to the masses.
On Friday nights, he transitioned into the club scene with well-known DJ Kenny Meez of Federation Sound on Philly’s South St. at Club Eden Roc. His sharp transitions and set selection quickly captured the ears of the nightlife and DJ community. With early success in the clubs, he began conquering the Philly scene with weekly appearances at the upscale Club Glam and also the industrial style dance meccas Shampoo and Transit. His reputation was solidified with the mix series of Milky Hip Hop & Reggae volumes 1-5. The now classic series showcased irresistable original Gregg Nyce remixes and could be heard at house parties and in car radios across the globe.
In 2003, Nyce teamed up with fellow DJ and Hollertronix co-founder, Low Budget, where they rotated Friday and Saturday nights at the infamous 5 Spot in Philly’s famous section of Old City. It was here that he perfected his mixology and delivered energizing sets to packed dance floors. Soon, Nyce arrived on the New York market with appearances at several Manhattan hot spots including Club M1-5, Delancey, and The Knitting Factory.
The Gregg Nyce sound has evolved into an eclectic mix that encompasses all genres from Hip Hop to R&B to Reggae to House to Electro to Classics. In 2009 Nyce teamed up with DJ Evolution and VJCA to form Three’s Company aka 3′s Co. The trio’s monthly party quickly caught the eyes & ears of many music/art lovers that craved something different. Their popularity landed 3′s Co. in several regional clubs & bars and they continue to perform every second Friday through 2011.
Today, Nyce can be heard electrifying party goers inside swank lounges and mammoth clubs or mixing seamless blends at upscale department stores, trendy boutiques, and private parties for elite clientele. His stove-hot remixes and blends can be heard on popular radio shows, DJ compilations, and scores of blogs and websites. He currently holds residencies at Shampoo (Philly) and the Building 24 (Wyomissing, PA) where International DJ’s and groups, such as DJ Enferno, Hyper Crush, Disco Fries, Jazzy Jeff, and many many more, perform weekly.
Nyce continues to produce monthly mixes with his LunchBox series which spans various sounds and styles. With a command of beats and two ears on the scene, Nyce presses through the debris that holds other artists back. His self- made style and non-stop flow leaves bodies tired and dance floors warped.
