As a pioneer in the urban scene, Nelson started his broadcasting career at then pirate station Kiss in 1985. In 1990 it gained a broadcasting licence to become Kiss 100 London (Kiss FM), it was here that Nelson became director of the station and daytime DJ. Behind the decks Nelson cut his teeth as a DJ with Soul II Soul and promoted numerous club nights including the now legendary Lick parties. With a stint behind the scenes in A&R at Cooltempo, EMI, Nelson was instrumental in the careers of D’Angelo, Mica Paris and Lynden David Hall. In 1996, Nelson moved to BBC Radio 1 to present the first ever national RNB show ' The Rhythm Nation' and a year later began a Saturday afternoon programme which resulted in his winning a MOBO Award in 1997 as Best DJ.
