MELBOURNE export Nicki S promoted legendary hard dance club Endorphin before getting behind the decks herself, but in a very short space of time shot to being one of the UK’s top female jocks. Her futuristic brand of hard dance has been a hit from Canada, the USA and Ibiza to Australia and South America and now that her sound is becoming more psy-trance infl uenced, her popularity is only growing. Forthcoming gigs include warming up for Astrix’s live set at We Love Astrix at Turnmills, in London during February, and a tour of Argentina in March, as well as her regular London residencies at Innovate and Extreme Euphoria. As label manager and A&R for Quality Trax, she signed some of the top tracks in hard dance, and has already collaborated in the studio with some major players. With tracks already in the bag for her fi rst artist album (due out in the summer), we’re looking forward to seeing what she can do when she puts the same energy into her own music.
