Guynamukat represents the super rare afro disco boogie edits from Guynamite and Nik Mukatsuku (aka Guynamukat)!

The production duo have been banging out remixes and edits for the past couple years and slip us 3 absolute scorchers that shine amongst the current trend of rare African records being repressed (see all the excellent Soundway releases and recent Lagos Disco comp).

Nik Weston is a DJ, music producer, record label owner of Mukatsuku Records and music buyer for Juno Records. Based out of London, UK, he was from the late 1990's to 2007 a key player in the promotion and distribution of Japanese recording artists and their releases outside of the country, as part of the late 1990s into 2000s revival in the jazz dance, soul-jazz and electronic Japanese music scene. He is a keen advocate of the vinyl record format.

Nik Weston first entered the London dance music scene in 1994, when he started the club night Phony. He and two other friends then started a club night in Soho called Mukatsuku in 1997. It ran for 2 years from 1997 - 1999 upstairs at two floor room Club in London China Town called The Clinic, and was nominated by London Evening Standard Newspaper as 'club night of the year'.

He started the label Mukatsuku Records in 2006 after DJing as part of the Mukatsuku Crew since 1997. Weston started up a promotional company called Mukatsuku PR in 2001, doing consulting and promotion for labels such as Verve Records, Impulse, Sonar Kollektiv, Schema Records, and Ricky Tick amongst others.

As a DJ, he's played over 30 countries and supported Gilles Peterson, Jazzanova, and others. Since 2001 Weston has put out over 100 releases on various labels in the US, Europe and Japan, and over 27 releases on his own Mukatsuku Records.

Since 2010 he's created music under the name GUYNAMUKAT and in 2012 launched a solo edit label called MUKAT Edits. In GUYNAMUKAT's Afro Disco Boogie series the first four volumes included Guy Benton (Guynamite) as a contributor, while 5 and 6 were Weston alone.
