Need a gift for a gifted musician?
Erik Iker, born in November 1988. in Belgrade, Serbia. First time he came into contact with music
was as only a boy, when his dad played his record collection. Later in the 90s he gets in touch
with electronic music, listening to Faithless, Scooter, Prodigy and others. His music
breakthrough happens in 2002. when he goes underground, meeting psytrance and trance for the
first time. While more and more listening to these genres, he gets an idea to start mixing of his
own and gets his hands on his very own first Fruity Loops Studio and starts creating music. At
first time just having fun, he gained much experience in producing. In 2006. he decides to slow
his beat and under the influence of Deep Dish, Sasha and others he starts producing progressive
house. Until 2009. he learned quite a bit working in FLS. While he was watching tutorials,
reading artist blogs and following their studio work online, his production got much better and
could be considered quite serious. In 2010. he starts producing with a wish to do something more.
His genre can be described as Progressive House with strong melodies, always a good atmosphere at
hand, mixed with some trance elements. Under the influence of his fellow DJsin Serbia he also
starts producing Tech House. Loving the slower tempo, nice grooves, noise, melodies and stong
energic tracks, a lot can be expected in the future from Erik. Wish to do something more will
always continue to prevail.
Ikerya Project is the second project of Erik Iker, producer from Serbia. Genre can be described
as Uplifting Trance. Desire to produce Trance came to life while listening Psy Trance. He got to
know the rules of Trance and rules needed to create melodies. In 2006. he gets his hands on Armin
Only DVD, and in that moment great love towards Uplifting Trance was born. Slowly forgetting
about Psy Trance, he starts going forward to so called Euro Trance. From 2006. to 2010, while
listening many Uplifting Trance artist, Erik learns a lot about Trance producing. He gained great
inspiration while following numerous Trance radio shows, he decides to put Ikerya Project into
motion. Producing many tracks in fast speed, inspired Erik sends his tracks to many underground
labels. Some of his tracks will be released in summer 2011. Ikerya Project is a pretty new
project, but inspiration and desire to become one of big names in Uplifting Trance don’t lack.
