For over 10 years Nina Las Vegas has been a stalwart fixture at triple j. Most well known for hosting the Saturday night pump up show House Party, and more recently for hosting and producing the acclaimed dance music program, Mix Up Exclusives, Nina has announced she is leaving the station for brighter pastures, launching her own record label, Nina Las Vegas Records, and pursuing her career as an international DJ and producer.
Making House Party a household name during her time as host, even launching its first compilation CD and club tour, Nina helped launch the careers of countless homegrown artists including Flume, Alison Wonderland, Flight Facilities, Wave Raver, Tkay Maidza and more.
In statement, Nina had to following to say of her forthcoming departure.
“For the past decade triple j, the Australian club scene, supporting local artists and pioneering new electronic music has been my life. I walked into triple j as a work experience kid at 19 and literally worked every job right up until House Party and Mix Up Exclusives. Thank you to triple j for the incredible experience and especially to the triple j listeners for listening to my first triple j mixtapes, calling in to House Party, coming to House Party gigs and texting in when I play something crazy on Mix Up Exclusives.”
You can listen to Nina’s final Mix Up Exclusives show at 9pm Sat 24 Oct, which will feature sets from some of Nina’s favourite producers, famous friends and the biggest names in the biz.
NLV Records’ first signings are expected to be announced next week, and Nina’s will be dropping her own release on the label as well as announcing a series of international NLV shows before the year’s end.
Thanks for the good times Nina!
