We love Nicole!
She first trundled along into our iffy lives when she stopped in at one of the first Zoetrope parties
back in '97.
She'd just shifted to Melbourne from Canberra, and she handed Andrez a tape while he was deejaying (badly); "Artificial" was the moniker scrawled across the cover.
While he'd already finalised the line-up for the third IF? compilation 'Zeitgeist 3', that changed as soon as Andrez
heard the tape - Artificial's 'Authority Over The Fish' was an instant inclusion.
As it turned out, Nicole had been twiddling knobs for years by that point and was a member of Clan Analogue - eventually
joining forces with Kate Crawford to form the B(if)tek empire.
These days the divine Ms. Skeltys focuses more on her more wunderbar solo work, along with her burgeoning band Dust and
its upcoming album, and almost a decade later we're still enamoured...
Did we say we love Nicole?
Amen to that.
