Nathan Jenkins is a producer and songwriter from West London. Under his pseudonym Bullion, he’s released records on Young, The Trilogy Tapes (Blue Pedro) and Jagjaguwar. Nathan’s production and co-write credits include albums for Orlando Weeks, Westerman and Hayden Thorpe, EPs for Joviale and songs on Nilufer Yanya’s latest LP.
Nathan self-released Pet Sounds: In The Key Of Dee in 2007, before pivoting in a more electronic direction via Get Familiar and Young Heartache. From the sampledelia of 2011`s Too Right, the new wave and rave of Say Arr Ee to the Robert Wyatt-influenced Love Me Oh Please Love Me, he’s mapped a peculiar path.
In 2012, he started DEEK Recordings as an outlet for collaborations. A series of covers compilations (on its 4th iteration), with contributions from Sean Nicholas Savage, Red Axes, Kero Kero Bonito and more, reflects the label’s ‘Pop, not slop’ aesthetic.
Following a move to Lisbon in 2018, Nathan wrote We Had A Good Time – released in 2020, on his return to London. Philip Sherburne, writing for Pitchfork, attributed “remarkable healing powers” to lead song Hula.
