Questions and Answers with DJ Nika

We caught up with DJ Nika to discuss his career so far plus any future plans the NYC based electronic artists may have in the pipeline.
For those of us that don’t know, tell us a little more about DJ Nika.

I’ve been a music fanatic from an early age and fell in love with house music in 2006 after moving to NYC. Originally hailing from a hip-hop background, I began frequenting the NYC’s house scene and soon took a turn towards production and promotion in various New York City nightclubs, including North America’s premier entertainment venue; Webster Hall. Being surrounded with countless famous musicians and singers, whom I drew inspiration and knowledge from meant that making the transition to DJ was inevitable.

(From Bio)

It is DJ Nika who was spinning at the hottest clubs in NYC and is fast becoming a household name in the world-renowned party scene. His self-taught character and unmatched dedication quickly gained respect among other DJ’s as he kicked off his DJ debut in the legendary Webster Hall, New York’s Largest and longest running nightclub. He went on to share the turntables with many of the best international DJ’s in the top NYC hot spots such as Pacha, Marquee, Sky Room, Le Souk as well as proudly participated in the NYC dance parade in the heart of Manhattan. Just the fact that Nika was able to join the elite DJ’s of NYC in such a short period of time, demonstrates his great talent. Anyone who has seen him in action was left yearning for more. His genre includes Progressive, Electro, Big Room & Techno/ Tech House. A force behind his success is the fact that he lives and breathes house music, creating his own distinctive style and versatile mixes. He easily connects with the audience taking them to a higher level.

After the release of his major hit ‘Awakening’ and ‘First Step’ Housepital Records and Peak Hour Music, 2017 looks set to follow the success of 2016. Supported by biggest DJs Chuckie and Divai.

What first spurred you onto to start mixing/producing?

Tiesto, of course! When I was a kid I was always listening to him. And, secondly, if that is allowed, is New York City. After I moved here in 2006 I see this city is for me!

If you weren’t a DJ then what else could you see yourself doing?

Maybe a basketball player.

Tell us a little more about your debut in China?

We went to China from my day job and was lucky enough to be able to play two of the biggest clubs in Hangzhou. Both shows were very successful

Musically, what inspires your sound?

At the moment just everyday life, real things; the outside world, people, new countries, new cultures.

What’s been the most memorable moment of your career as an artist/DJ so far?

My first major set. It was in 2009 when I originally started performing at the legendary, Webster Hall NYC. I was playing the main stage main, in-front of the 2,000 plus people every Saturday night for 2 years.

What DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) do you use to produce?

I use a few different ones such as Image Line, Fruity Loops, Logic and others.

Where or what is next for DJ Nika?

To be known around the world for my music. And moving to South America, I can’t wait.
