It was not too long ago that Nikita, ventured out from Denver, Colorado to pursue his dreams of working in the music industry. His lifelong love affair with music commenced as a young boy, playing piano, singing, and dancing. Many years later, Nikita attended a warehouse party that changed his life, in a profound and lasting way (circa 1993) – he became one of Denver’s ‘underground party-scene offspring’! In 2000, Nikita left Colorado for California.
In the past eight years, Nikita’s perseverance, deep devotion, and unconditional love for playing quality dance music has placed him among the top DJs of San Francisco’s world-famous club scene. In 2005, Nikita was chosen to host his own radio show on Northern California’s Energy 92.7 FM – The Massive Mix. It was Nikita’s raw talent that also landed him a residency at San Francisco’s legendary nightclub, The EndUp.
Performing anywhere from 2 to 12 hours; Nikita’s playfulness behind the decks takes you on a ride seamlessly blending sick minimal grooves, heavy basslines, melodic synths, and twisted beats, while still keeping it soulful and deep. Nikita has tagged with likes of Cassy, Lee Burridge, Derek Plaslaiko and played along side Steve Lawler, Steve Bug, Damien Lazurus, M.A.N.D.Y., Tom Stephan (Superchumbo), Craig Richards, and many more. With inspirations who are also friends, like, Ms. Honey Dijon, Tedd Patterson, and Danny Tenaglia, it is no wonder that Nikita, is one of dance music’s upcoming success stories.
Through his broad musical taste and genre bending, Nikita has always managed to create a unique dance floor experience that continues to draw a diverse audience.
Nikita’s latest musical explorations have been taking place in studio, centering on production. Look out for his releases scheduled for later this year.
