BeatNik, is a 21 year old Psytrance music producer and DJ, who, despite his young age, has already been producing electronic music now for over a decade.
His sound is a combination of many elements: From funky cheeky electro edged grooves, to more full-on darker sounds and structures, to filmic edged soundscapes. This alongside a highly energetic live set!
He studied classically from the age of four, playing piano (classical and jazz) and bassoon stopping off at various instruments along the way: e.g. Violin, Drums/percussion, recorder... as well as the latin-style nose-flute.
His first CD release was back in December 2005 on Streamline (Nano Records)... and has had more releases on other influential labels such Sonic Dragon (Album: Get Your Wonk On) and Liquid Records (Album: Divine Inventions) as well as upcoming releases on labels including Ministry of Sound, as well as his own album on Liquid Records
His first Live Set was at Synergy Project at SEOne in April 2006. He has also played at many other venues, festivals and forests in and around London, Bristol, Cambridge, Oxford, Portsmouth Lancashire and all around the rest of the U.K. where he has played alongside artists both trance and non-trance such as:
Dick Trevor, Hot Chip, Shitdisco, Laughing Buddha, Sub Focus, Shane Gobi, Ans, Commercial Hippies, Drummatic Twins, Far too Loud and many many more.
This is all alongside international gigs and festivals e.g. in Ireland, Holland, Poland and further afield
