Nikki Nair is a producer and DJ from the southeastern US. He is part of a collective that throws free dance music events in Knoxville, where he lives and makes music. His productions range from experimental post-disco to aggressive electro with many styles in between. Nikki boasts a rugged, bass-heavy sound that morphs techno with flourishes of electro, EBM and bass.
Nair has gradually introduced himself as a force to be reckoned with. First making his debut in 2018 with a track contribution for Partial Magic’s Hot Take V/A, Nikki followed it up with four solo EPs for Scuffed, Discovery Recordings, TRAM Planet and Gobstopper Records in 2019, and two solo EPs for Pretty Weird and Muy Muy Ltd. in 2020.
Nikki’s next release of 2020 is lined up on Banoffee Pies’ - serving up a helping of heavy bass and intricate rhythms.
'Number One Slugger’ EP shows his knack for playing with bass across the five tracks, from the down right gnarly to that subtle pulsing low end.
Nikki's tracks have been supported by the likes of Ben UFO, Four Tet, FaltyDL, Mount Kimbie, Jensen Interceptor and many more.
