Starting back in the late 90’s / early 2000’s; NYC DJ’s Melissa Nikita & VTONE separately held down residencies in some of the top clubs NYC had to offer…… Sound Factory, EXIT, Limelight, ROXY, Centro Fly PLUS countless others were rocked by these two forces. Over the years – both had no idea how their paths would one day cross in the way they did…
With the same amount of LOVE & PASSION for the business; both MELISSA NIKITA + VTONE actually share a similar history within the NYC and International scene as well. Involving an immense amount of work on other soils as well as their hometown state, if you ever saw the two spin, you would witness an unyielding amount of energy, connected to their love of mixing multiple tracks at once, while keeping the crowd moving non-stop.
MELISSA NIKITA + VTONE were both born in the same Bensonhurst Brooklyn, NY neighborhood and were both immersed in music at very young ages. Melissa Nikita’s elementary years involved voice, writing melodies, lyrics and production/DJ’ing by her late teen years; while VTONE derived in Drums, DJ’ing and production within that same time frame. Both also found a home in the business within promotions as well…. VTONE opening TONE Productions; Melissa Nikita opening NIKITA|EVENTS.
By the mid-2000’s, MELISSA NIKITA + VTONE recognized to have similar sounds and style, were being booked side by side at clubs across NYC. Ranging from Tribal-Tech House & Techno, the two paired up to form TECHTONiK in recent times and now work side by side as partners sharing the stage and studio teaming up, as well as separate entities.
2013 was filled with exciting successes for the two. “Partners” became “company owners” with the birth of TECHTONiK Music Productions, LLC and by the fall New York City Based “System Recordings” signed single “Passioné” featuring remixes by Jay Speed and Ron Costa; Italy based “ESSENCE Recordings” signed 3-track “Destino” EP featuring “Destino”, “Marciaré” & “Volo”; and Italy based “Subwoofer Records” signed 2-track “Spirits” EP featuring “Invocazioné” & “Seduzioné”.
In recent days, the pair has joined the family of MB Elektronics [Marco Bailey] with a single release on their 2014 Amsterdam Dance Event release, Nervous Records with 2 tracks releasing Nov-Dec as well as bouq.sub coming this fall.
