Antenna Happy Short Info

Electronic music made in Brighton

In a religious education class at a Wolverhampton school in the late 80s, Nathan Pope got his first taste of techno and house. Listening on a walkman at the back of the class to tracks by Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson, his musical world exploded and so began his life-long love affair with both types of music.

Continuing his religious education at clubs and raves in the West Midlands and the North of England, this love was cemented and he dreamed of writing and playing the only music that has ever really made any sense to him.

He moved to Bristol in 1991, started DJing whilst at college, co-founded a midweek club night called Flybaby, released a couple of singles with his mates, and became a resident DJ on Saturday nights at Lakota.

By the mid-nineties the cult of the superstar DJ had finally taken hold everywhere in the UK, and, disillusioned, he turned his back on it all and pursued a career in acting (his second love), and then software design, and even had a shot at stand-up comedy before the music sucked him back in. It sounded amazing again, a new generation had pushed it forwards and he wanted to be a part of it once more.

The birth of his daughter was the inspiration he needed and he started again. Intense studio sessions in Brighton sandwiched between parenting and the day-job have given birth to his latest project - Antenna Happy.

Antenna Happy’s debut EP Pinto was released on new LA imprint Reinhardt in Sept 2014 and was picked up on BBC 6 Music, BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 3, Boiler Room, XLR8R, Ransom Note, i-D magazine and many more. There was strong DJ support from the likes of Rob da Bank, Daniel Avery, Ben UFO, Terry Farley, Tim Sweeney, Phil Kieran, Man Power, Surgeon, Mugwump, Sean Johnston, Headman, Sophie Lloyd, Domenic Capello of Sub Club amongst others.

Watch out for exciting new releases in Spring 2015 on Tenth Circle and Reinhardt
