“My career as a DJ reads like a cliché,” admits Nicolaz .” At the age of 16, I managed to fix a DJ spot in one of Antwerp’s trendy student café’s – then came the parties, clubs and festivals, both in Belgium and abroad.”Nicolaz kicked off as a hip-hop DJ but rapidly shifted style to concentrate on house music. The keen combination of danceable mixes, loops and captivating mash-up versions of both old floor-fillers and new tracks moulded together to become Nicolaz’s blend.His particular style and exclusive mixes didn’t remain unnoticed and mega-clubs where happy to welcome Nicolaz as resident DJ.As his name and fame spread, Nicolaz crossed over to leading clubs in France, Spain, Austria, Israel and the U.S.With dance festivals booming, both in Belgium and abroad, Nicolaz quickly became one of the ‘must-see, must hear’ artists on every bill. Following last year’s stint at Tomorrowland’s main stage, the world’s biggest dance- blowout, DJ Nicolaz also played the first US-edition of TomorrowWorld in Chattahoochee Hills, near Atlanta, Georgia. “That’s where singer Angelika Vee joined me on stage to perform my new single, “Riot”,” he says. “The track was previewed by Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike in one of their highly acclaimed “Smash The House”-radio shows two months before, and quickly went into the show’s play-list. In addition, “Riot” enjoyed early support from fellow DJ- producers such as Chuckie, Wolfpack, Yves V, Peter Luts, Moguai...”.Released on the Belgian specialised cross-over dance and quality house label N.E.W.S. records, “Riot” hit the (digital) racks on Sept 23rd, available on Beatport, Spotify and iTunes. “Remix packages by Wolfpack, Boostedkids, Alvar & Millas and Amro will certainly add to the track’s life,” enthuses Nicolaz.“Riot” is now crossing the European borders – at the prestiguous Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE – Oct 16- 20th),with over 2000 artists and some 300.000 visitors, the track was signed by labels in Scandinavia, Germany and France. In addition, Nicolas is looking at a US-release with Ultra Music before the holiday season. The international release of “Riot” is backed by a video, shot by Invisible Pictures, the company that produced videos for David Guetta, Axwell and events like Tomorrowland.Nicolaz adds: “This is really like a dream come true – the last 12 months have been tremendous,”.
