Nic Fanciulli, 26, who recently ended his world tour in Shanghai, has been nominated in the best remix category in the Grammys. The 49th awards ceremony will be held next month in LA.

If I weren't talking to you right now I'd be...

Getting ready to go out for a slap-up meal with my mates.

My earliest childhood memory is...

Being on a beach in Africa. I lived in Kenya until I was about four.

A phrase I use far too often is...

I'll do it later or in a bit.

I wish people would take more notice of...

Overall, world poverty. But in my industry I wish new talent was recognised. It's all about giving new people a chance ...

The most surprising thing that ever happened to me was...

Being nominated for a Grammy award. I was sitting in my front room when my agent in America called me to tell me. At first I didn't think it was that much of a big deal until I did a bit of research.

A common misconception of me is...

People think I may have changed but nothing has. I'm still the same as when I was 21. I may have a bit more dough but that's it.

I'm good at...

Blagging it and DJing.

But I'm very bad at...

Lying - yes there is a difference - I'm pretty crap at that.

I'm not a politician but...

I'd take taxes down.

My ideal night out is...

With close friends in my home town of West Malling, Kent.

My ideal night in is...

Watching a great DVD. I'm a huge fan of world cinema and David Lynch.

In a nutshell, my philosophy is this:

Just to enjoy it.
