Hailing from Dallas, TX, Nik Purohit a.k.a. "NIK P" has been making waves in the electronic bass scene as a producer and DJ. Known for his fresh but heavy sets, NIK P brings a fine level of curation towards bass music on the side of halftime, neuro, drum & bass, and beyond. He is also known as one of the primary tastemakers behind premier experimental electronic labels, VALE and PRIME. NIK P’s sets are guaranteed to properly showcase the future of bass music.
Taking influences from his surroundings and given his unique position at the epicenter of most major forward-thinking outlets, he is able to create a complex mix of genres & styles in his own music that has its own visual aspect of abstract art rooted in minimalism and sci-fi futurism. His main goal is to push forward-thinking music to the masses, inspired by the music that he wraps himself in from the likes of Alix Perez, Eprom, Shades, Chee, Ivy Lab and Tsuruda; all artists who are pushing the fringes of electronic music forward.
NIK P’s sound has the potential to push the current trends of bass music, as he carefully blends hip-hop with neuro into “halftime”, drum & bass, and beyond, all while staying true to his hip-hop roots. His unrelenting urge to experiment with different styles and fresh sounds keeps everyone on their toes on what to expect from the young producer. Even then, his style doesn’t stop there, as his audiovisual approach with music takes each release to another level, similar to audiovisual pioneers like G Jones, Amon Tobin & Eric Prydz.
