Toronto-born, Berlin-based Composer, DJ & Producer Nathan Micay, has a background in classical and folk music. He fell in love with UK dance music in the post-dubstep 2010s, gaining early support for his impeccable craft. Across critically received records for AD93 and LUCKYME, Micay toured the world, soundtracking a few Summers. In 2020 he upped his own ante; writing his first original score for HBO's 'Industry'.
His music typified by melody and spacious sound design: he evolves the once-futuristic sound of 1980s film into truly contemporary dance music. Where many in his field embrace the robotic tendencies of electronics - Nathan Micay is concerned with the human, creating widescreen frames onto which we can project our stories.
For the Industry OST he wrote a soaring soundtrack which sympathises with young graduates entering the ugly world of London finance: their ego and pomposity writ large across broad celestial synthetic minimalism. Through clever gestures he created a realistic sound for the characters lives: the backdrop to their late night hedonism. And also spoke to the slow destruction of their sense of self within a system beyond our control.
