Nikan, deejay | producer from Belgium, Europe.
NIKAN was born in October 1982 in Antwerp, Belgium. Ever since age 16 he has been hooked on dance music. NIKAN had the desire to become a deejay, but funds were limited for such an expensive hobby..
However 10 years later in November 2006, NIKANdecided to go for it with the “now or never” attitude in mind. He started playing with a cheap double cd player and composing songs on a digital audio workstation.
One year later NIKAN had his first 4 tracks signed on the legendaryBonzai Music/Banshee Worx label from Belgium. The most frequent genre NIKAN has been playing and produces is tech-house /progressive house.
Later on that year NIKAN , formerly known as IVI-R was asked to join the Banshee Entertainment booking agency as deejay on the Bonzai Music roster. In February 2008,NIKAN won the first deejay contest he ever competed in. After only one year of dj'ing, he was announced the winner of the big young talent corner/poppunt contest. Since then NIKAN has gotten more involved in the music business and several releases and gigs have followed.
In the mean time NIKAN has already played in the biggest clubs/festivals in Belgium and abroad such as La Rocca, Versuz, Illusion,Club Phoenix, Kubbe Club,..
NIKAN has shared clubnights playing with lots of big names in the scene such as Dave Lambert, Jack de Marseille, Art B (the Creamminals) , Regi, Dominico, Jan Vervloet,..
NIKAN is nowadays the driving force behind Neglected Grooves Digital Music Label, together with Anthro.
The story of NIKAN has only just begun, that’s for sure...
