Nick Hollywood

Nick Hollywood is a musician, designer, DJ, radio presenter and head honcho at Freshly Squeezed Music.

Memorably described as a “suave impresario” by The Independent and “the Godfather of Electro Swing” by The Daily Telegraph, Nick founded the Brighton-based independent label and music publishing company in 2005. Among many notable successes, the label was the first to launch Electro Swing in the UK with the award-winning White Mink : Black Cotton compilation series. The CD launch party gave birth to the worlds first Electro Swing club in London in 2009 while the compilation itself went on to become a multiple silver-disc’d series awarded the accolade of “electro-swing’s first landmark moment” by Mixmag in 2010.

In late 2011 Freshly Squeezed expanded further becoming a weekly 2 hour radio show hosted by Nick Hollywood on Brighton’s Juice 107.2FM and featuring an eclectic mix of vintage and vintage-remixed sound. The show has subsequently been syndicated to Kiss FM in Australia, and to FM stations in Germany, Turkey and across North America.

King Size Slim

In 2005 Toby Barelli aka KING SIZE SLIM began experimenting with a new sound. A sound fully conscious of its roots but with a new story to tell. Having spent the previous 4 years touring and recording with TwoTone pioneers The Selecter along with other Ska and Reggae luminaries, the sound was always going to be rhythm led, heavy on the bass and rootsy in the melody. The trademarks of that sound emanate from a road-beaten Resophonic guitar, a powerful and direct vocal style and a peculiar rhythm section of Double Bass and a duo of Percussionists.  It‘s a heavyweight acoustic sound that shouts loud and kisses sweet.

Performing regular shows at the legendary 100 Club, Camden’ Jazz Cafe and Union Chapel Islington announced KING SIZE SLIM to an enthusiastic London Scene. Following the release of his debut studio album Milk Drunk KING SIZE SLIM won international critical acclaim, IBBA album of the month, a British Blues Award and a nomination in Wasser Prawda magazine awards.

Touring double bill solo shows with Sugar Hill Gang / Little Axe legend Skip McDonald and also loop machine blues maniac Son Of Dave opened the KING SIZE SLIM sound to new audiences across the UK and allowed Toby to develop a uniquely powerful and engaging live show. Five studio albums, several awards and somewhere near 1500 shows in countless countries and the KING SIZE SLIM sound continues to develop its unique Heavyweight Acoustic sound and style.
