Nika Son

analogue synth lines

knocking radio waves

and other


Born not far away from the geographic centre of Germany Nika Son headed up north at an early age and started to visit the Hamburg artschool. First active as a painter she finished her studies as a sound artist and musician. Influenced by Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music as well as her way from sculptural to sound-sculptural work, led to a love for manipulated field recordings, tape-loops, synthesizer sequences and knocking radiowaves.

As a DJ (Nikae) she also runs two regular nights at the notorious Hamburg Golden Pudel Club (Next Time & Noctuidae) and releases her music on her own label Noctui.

Compilation appearances on differing labels, such as MMODEMM, SKY WALKING, ANTI-GHOST MOON RAY…

Her newest collaborative project is called C with the musician F#X/E.K.G.
