Playing drums and guit ar at an early age meant t hat Beetnik's, born Nicky Low, musical tastes were firmly in the rock spectrum, until a visit to Ibiza as a fresh- faced 17-year-old. The island was a home away from home that allowed Nicky to sample a wide range of music, including house, electro, techno, hard dance and chill-out.

An accomplished DJ himself, Nicky has been DJing in and around Glasgow for about 4 years and more recently, the twisted electro sounds of people like Boys Noize, SebastiAn, Soulwax, Tiga, Justice and Digitalism caught his imagination. Leading him to create his so-called ''twisted underground electro sound" under theBeet nik moniker, t hat became popular on various forums, and ink a deal with New York City-based record label ModyWorks in early 2009.
