Nils

Nils began actively DJ'ing in the early 90's and has been consistently gigging ever since.

In that time he has earned a reputation as an inspiring DJ who has a knack for reading the energy of a room and giving the Dance Floor just what it needs.

He has played at many Festivals including Diversity, BIG TIME OUT, Entheos, Komasket, In Shala, Earth Dance, The Vancouver Folk Music Festival, and Shambhala for 6 years running.

He has played headlining sets in Vancouver and throughout B.C. and has opened for the likes of Cheb i Sabbah, Nickodemus, Adham Shaikh, Gaudi, Beats Antique, Ott, Talvin Singh, David Starfire, Bluetech, Heyokah, Femi Kuti, Delhi 2 Dublin, and Oka.
This diverse list should give you a sense of the range of styles Nils can represent. If there is a constant to his sets though, it is that all of them have at least some Global Beats represented.

He is the visionary behind the "Faeries and Fools Costume Carnival" and is a founding member of the Beats Without Borders Collective.

By day he works at Highlife Records on Commercial Drive in East Vancouver where he takes delight in helping people get to know the world of music.
