Niklāvz comes from a city called Liepāja, which is often referred to as “the rock city” and is known for being the most musical city in Latvia; this being the case, Niklāvz has been connected to music since his early childhood. In 2006 he met Dj And Free (formerly — Dj Krii) who explained to him the role of beats and instrumental accompaniment in relation to hip-hop music.
Although Niklāvz has earned his recognition quite recenly, he now is one of the most well-reputed beatmakers in Latvia. He has participated and won beat-battles, most recently the international “Ŗitmos Kovos” at Satta Outside festival, produced and remixed significant rap songs and released several instrumental releases. Currently broadens his musical horizons by performing live along with other DDA members and more than often boasts the most responsive reaction from the audience.
