Nick Yee

Host, Bridging the Gap

Nick Yee’s passion for music developed at an early age, as he collected jazz and rock records pulled from dusty locations while growing up in both southern California and Honolulu.  In college he started DJ-ing around town, playing long acid jazz and bossa nova sets at various lounges under the name dj mr.nick.  He started to incorporate down tempo and electronic music into his sets as his popularity grew, eventually getting DJ residences at different Chinatown locations. To this day, he is a fixture in the Honolulu underground club scene, where his live sets are famous for being able to link musical and cultural boundaries, starting mellow and building the audience into a frenzy.

In addition to his club life, Nicholas has spent the last 7 years as a DJ for UH Mānoa’s KTUH, running one of its most popular radio shows The Jet Set. He has also served at KTUH in various capacities, including manager and educator.
