James Sammon established his name and Pianoman brand during the early nineties House Music boom, where he self-released a series of white labels under the alias of PCP. One of the tracks called “Whitney Tune” taken from Volume Two became an instant club anthem. Sammon began to run his own label called Piano Choons via legendary UK/Italian House label Disco Magic UK. Over a period of two years tracks were produced and released, which are now anthems on what is called these days the Old School scene.
In 1994 James produced and pressed up 300 copies of a bootleg track he made that he called “Blurred”, on account of it containing a sample of Damon Albarn from the indie group Blur, by this time using the name Pianoman.
The track “Blurred” was an overnight success and sold the first 300 units in less than twenty minutes after it was played on Kiss FM by Graham Gold and BBC 1 by John Peel and Pete Tong. Two years later the track was released on 3 Beat records via London/FFRR and went straight into the UK chart top ten at number 6, staying in the chart for a full four weeks.
Appearances on Top Of The Pops and MTV followed, as well as featuring on the Radio One roadshow and the Smash Hits roadshow tour. In all Blurred sold 480,000 copies in the UK alone. Check out Pianoman on Sure Sounds spinning all the piano hits!

Disco, funk and soul music found Steve at a young age in the early eighties. A close friend introduced him to electro and jazz funk which opened Steve’s eyes and ears to beats and bass. This turned into a love of house music after hearing Frankie Knuckles & Jamie Principle monster “Your Love” in the late eighties. A pair of belt drive turntables soon followed to emulate his new heroes Frankie Knuckles, Marshall Jefferson, Tony Humphries and Ron Hardy.
Steve traded in the belt drives for 1210’s in the early nineties and so began his DJing, playing house parties to pubs and then into the clubs around Manchester throughout the nineties. A short spell as an owner/promoter and DJ of “Hot House Promotions” taught him a valuable lesson to stick to the fun side of DJing. His love of music and DJing took him to Malta, Tenerife and Australia.
Steve moved to Australia in 1998 and continued DJing and being involved with all thing’s music. His taste in music was eclectic to say the least, with a deep rooted love of melody coming from early influences of disco and soul, Steve always made sure there was piano, vocals and strings, never far away in any of his sets and shows.
Steve loves nothing more than to play across genres of disco, funk, soul, and house, guesting on local radio shows and most recently playing for the legendary Fantasy FM London. Join Steve as he plays both upfront and across the decades of disco, funk, soulful and house music.

His track “Devil’s Gambit” was remixed by his brother Carl Nicholson. Carl was already a legend in the Hard Trance scene and well established so it was the exposure that D-Manic needed.

His music releases, much like his DJing portfolio are a mix of genres. House, Trance, Breakbeat Hardcore, Liquid D&B, & Techno. He even released music under his real name (Dean Nicholson).

Stopped playing hardcore in 97 and went on the garage scene where I was playing out every weekend all over southeast London with my good friend and DJ partner now turned producer Mr BFresh. Ended up running my own club nights every Sunday in Bexleyheath at the Frontier Post, keeping me busy.
Left the southeast of London in 2003 and now live in Lanzarote, in Canary islands, holiday central. Also one half of the duo Liquid Rollers with scotty doog, both of us are producers and DJ’s bringing back the old school rave piano breaks.
“Whipping together a mesmerising flow of freestyle bass, frequency-driven abstractions, penetrating rhythms and an intangible sip of soul, Unique 3 has been on the razor’s edge of dance music since its’ inception. And there is a worrying selection of scars to prove it.”
Forever etched into Warehouse legend with the pioneering of ‘Bleep House’, Unique 3 was instrumental in evolving House Music beyond its roots in Soul and Disco and into a futuristic soundscape that drove the progressions of Dance Music as we know it, setting the standard and the headspace for a staggering number of records that followed. Unique 3 has been cited by such luminaries as The Chemical Brothers, Coldcut, Goldie & LFO as inspiration.
Unique 3’s ground breaking early UK Hip-Hop bridged the gap from the US-style into a vibrant new sound that was to change music forever. ‘Activity’ by Unique 3 was arguably the first dance track to sample the infamous AMEN break, and layered with a second break, it is easily recognisable as the “go-to” breakbeat that went on to become the staple drum sample for foundation producers of ‘Jungle’ then’ Drum & Bass’.
The inclusion of Unique 3’s ‘The Theme’ on both The Chemical Brothers’ album of tracks that inspired them to make music (Brothers Gonna Work It Out) & on Warp Records’ collection of early House tracks that inspired them to set up their world-famous label (an album aptly titled ‘Inspirations’ and later their download site named after Unique 3’s sound “BLEEP”) stands as a testament to this. – source: Virgin/10 Records Press Department
Edzy was recently reminded of Unique 3’s iconic status in the history of dance music when ‘The Theme’ was voted the number 1 track played at The Hacienda in the ’90s by the Deejays that played there. The fact that any of them can remember anything is a testament to the hypnotic power of the Bleep.
