The name "MELISSA NIKITA" has been spoken off the lips of many people in different sectors of the music business for over 18 years. MELISSA NIKITA is not only a DJ, Producer, & Lyricist; but also co-owner of TECHTONiK Music Productions, LLC. Deriving as a vocalist/lyricist when she was only 6 years old, to an internationally recognized DJ by the time she was 22, MELISSA NIKITA was poised to make her mark on the electronic music scene and establish herself as a staple in the business. Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, NY was where Melissa was raised in a Sicilian household where both her parents urged & supported her passion in music. In 1989, Melissa studied under Professor Aldo Bruschi’s [of The Juilliard School] as a vocal/piano student. Fast forward 10 years later was when MELISSA NIKITA recorded her first record, a Freestyle track later to be remixed by the legendary Jim Heinz of the Sound Factory NYC enterprise fame. Inspired by clubs like Limelight, Palladium & Sound Factory; her interest in music productions began by this time, and she was already the resident DJ by 2001 at NYC’s hot-spot’s “Centro Fly [Thursday’s]” as well as club “EXIT” supporting NYC legends Tony Draper [Friday’s] & Junior Vasquez [Saturday’s]. In the booth, MELISSA NIKITA blends aggressive, yet seductive rhythms, tribal / technohouse percussion and relentless energy into her own style of techno madness. By the mid-2000’s; MELISSA NIKITA was playing festivals all around the world supporting talent like Hardcell in Amsterdam, The Netherlands; Justin Time in Montreal & Kenny Glasgow in Quebec, Canada and headlined the “I LOVE T ECHNO” branded tour multiple times thru numerous cities in countries Columbia, Venezuela, Peru, Brazil; South America.
