Nick Boundy, better-known by his stage name M4SONIC, is an Australian electronic music producer, DJ and controllerist who is signed to Sony / Ultra Music. He also co-produced (with Stargate) the Ylvis comedy rap song The Fox (What Does the Fox Say?).
With a background in classical piano, this young producer discovered finger drumming after reading an interview with DeadMau5 slating modern day DJs as “glorified button pushers”. And so, determined to put skill back into electronic music performance, he purchased a Novation Launchpad the next day.
His first big YouTube hit was titled ‘Weapon‘. The mashup contains short samples from 15 of his favourite tracks (from artists such as Skrillex, Nero and DeadMau5). The video accumulated over 1 million views in under a week. Furthermore, it currently holds well over 40 million views on YouTube.
He has since accumulated well over 85 million views on his YouTube channel with his finger drumming performance videos. Furthermore, M4SONIC has also toured across America, Asia, Europe and Australia and played huge events including Tomorrow World, Stereosonic, Life Is Beautiful and the 2015 Warped Tour.
