His critically acclaimed record ‘Glue’ was featured on BBC Radio 1, where DJ/presenter Hannah Wants said: ‘this is one of my favorite tracks out at the moment [...] it’s absolutely going off’. Additional radio stations that aired his cuts include RTÉ 2fm, Kiss FM and Proton.

In the past, Nick worked as a producer, for over 6 years, in recording studios around the UK and Germany; most notably Schokopro, Naidoo-Herberger, Baltic and M:CON Mannheim. He produced music for major artists such as Xavier Naidoo and Söhne Mannheims, as well as working on cultural events like ‘Autosymphonic’ with 20,000 attendees: ‘the project was so demanding that the company had to fly in specialist Nick Elia to oversee the music production’ (SWR TV, Germany). His electroacoustic collaborative work with Marios Joannou Elia ‘En Plo’ was premiered at Akademie der Kuenste (Berlin) and was nominated for the Austrian Contribution to the 2009 ‘World New Music Days’ in Sweden. ‘Vertumnus’ received the Luigi Russolo Prize for electroacoustic music, awarded from Studio Forum (France), ElektraMusik (Strasbourg), Gràcia Territori Sonor (Barcelona) and Experimental Studio Slovak Radio & Monochromevision (Moscow).
