Nikko.Z was born in 1985 in Greece. From a very young age, he expressed his great love for music. Bands like ‘Pink Floyd’ and ‘The Doors’ were a great inspiration for him.
Hernan Cattaneo, Sasha and John Digweed were among those artists who were and still are a role model for Nikko and those who influenced him deeply at the age of 14. Growing up, he started exploring and listening to electronic music as well as DJing, which after a while became a real love for electronic music and a big passion. That was when the purpose was born, to produce his own tracks and leave his musical mark.
In 2006 he studied electronic music production in SAE International Institute of Athens. Over the past fifteen years he has created several productions in his own studio. More than 20 different labels from all over the world have trusted and released his productions. He has also presented his dj sets as a guest at several internet radio stations, such as Proton Radio, Frisky Radio, CrossFm, Golden Wings, Dance Radio and in many clubs in Europe, South America and the USA. His tracks have been remixed by Hernan Cattaneo and Soundexile (Orange Bus - Movement Recordings, Slope - Dopamine)
His music has received support from artists like Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Sasha, Paul Oakenfold, Dave Seaman, Nick Warren, Satoshi Tomiie, Marco Carola, Anthony Pappa, Armin Van Buuren, Paul Van Dyk and many more.
