Mc / Singer
MC Nes one was introduced to reggae music when he was 8 years old. He was inspired by his older brother, who was a radio DJ (DJ Massive Dread). At that time he listened to live dancehall tapes by King Stereo Mars Sound of Super Cat, Nicodemus and Tenor Saw. In 1980, at the age of 9, together with Rena Dread he brought a soundsystem to The Hague for the first time, Dr. Alimantado & the Freedom Sound. Together with Friggy Bonanza and Fresh Kid he initiated his own soundsystem called Panti Hi-Fi. Later on he became selector for Iba and Ros. Around 1989 he started practicing singing in his mother's shed, together with singer Langman. Nes One performed as MC and selector with with among others Just A Come Sound, Ragga Ragga Sound and Imperial Majesty Sound. In 1999 Nes One organized the Official Holland Soundclash in LVC in Leiden, which was the first event that focused on solely Dutch reggae soundsystems. Until 2003 he was Blakkstone Sound's regular MC, with who he organized the Unity Bashments. In 2004 Nes One and Big Lion started their own soundsystem, Apache Sound. Since 2008 Nes One has been working together with Ras Glen to give upcoming reggae singers a chance. He started his own backing band Nuff Vibez in 2009.
