After leaving her hometown in the south of Germany in early years, moving to England and back again, Nika Son headed up north and started to visit the Hamburg artschool. First active in drawing/installation she finished her studies as a sound artist and musician.
Infuenced by Musique Concrète and the outer space of electronic music, her compositions are build from
manipulated and fragmented fieldrecordings, interweaving with analogue synth lines,
knocking radiowaves and fltered tape layers.
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.
