Known for hosting electronic dance music events across the state of Montana in cities like Whitefish and Kalispell, Nick Ferrington has hit another career milestone. His debut EP Chihuahua is out now on all streaming platforms.
Last summer, Nick Ferrington helped put together one of the biggest EDM events his home state had ever seen: Area 406 Festival. Headlined by artists like ill.gates and Ahee, the festival brought hip-hop, electronic music, live DJing, and more across two days in Kalispell.
The Chihuahua EP features five songs with a mainstage tech house vibe. Inspired by a mix of his favorite artists like Dada Life, Claude Vonstroke, and Fisher, Chihuahua is a high-energy dance EP that shows a promising future for DJ/producer Nick Ferrington.
Nick Ferrington has performed at events like Camp EDC and Miami Music Week, and Chihuahua is his first full-length EP.
Formerly known as DJ Nicholas Minaj, he was a resident DJ at parties around Boston before moving back to Montana. He currently has his sights set on Las Vegas, where he will be relocating before the end of 2022.
After being involved in events across America from New England to The Gorge, Ferrington is eager to contribute to yet another city’s EDM scene. He will continue to build the community in his home state with future events, including a likely return of Area 406 Festival. Ferrington recently headlined his final hometown show at Casey’s in Whitefish, Montana.
The five-track Chihuahua EP features energetic tech house ideas that would feel at home in a Fisher or Claude set.
“Party Every Day” brings a heavy bassline to the table, “Overheard” has a groovy vibe, and “Chihuahua” is memorable for its vocal samples. The EP has a little bit of everything. “Traffic” was submitted to EDC Las Vegas’s Discovery Project, and it’s one of our favorites on the EP. Chihuahua closes with “1995”, which has some of the album’s highest energy and best production.
Chihuahua is worth a listen to for all fans of electronic music. And with more event production, DJ sets, and original music on the horizon, Nick Ferrington is a talent to watch in the future.
