Artist, singer, composer

nerulis on SoundBetter

I’m looking to work with other artists, singers, musicians, film makers and producers. I believe collaboration is more important than ever for growing artists.

London Irish producer and DJ Nerulis is David John Raffaele Laiso (Born in London’s east end on Nov 1974). Based on the west coast of Norway, his early musical influences were broad – Synth Pop, Dark Wave Acid house, Electro, Hip Hop, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Dub and Opera. During his school years, the only subject he was passionate about was Art, and after leaving school in 1991 he spent a year studying Graphic Design. In 2000 he moved to Ireland becoming involved in the Drum n Bass scene there in Cork City, and he frequently paid return visits to London – immersing himself in the city’s underground Psytrance scene. He then moved to Kilkenny to study Fine Art (specialising in Sound and Film) and it was there in 2001 that he bought his first set of turntables and under the pseudonym ‘Axab’, created Kilkenny’s first dedicated Drum n Bass night ‘Switch’ – which ran for a total of 4 years and fostered the talents of many bright young DJ´s. As well as his weekly DnB night, he also played at house party’s and gave vocal performances with a local punk band. He began writing and producing his own music from his home studio and over the next decade amassed a staggering back catalogue of music. He moved to Norway in 2011!and has since been active as Nerulis.
