Nik Carter was born on 20 December,1984, in Moscow. Music accompanied him since early childhood. Though at first he was keen on the music of 80’s, gradually he was carried away by electronic style. But he got the whole picture of electronics music industry only in 1995 when the first radio station which broadcast progressive, dancing and alternative electronic music – 106.8 FM “STATION 2000” was launched in Moscow. In 2000 he took a great interest in progressive trance style which involved him for a long time.
In 2003 there was a turning-point: the amateur DJ created his first composition. Strangely enough it was drum&bass . Dj Leon Carter - for that is the Djs first nickname - had his debut concert at an informal open air festival not far from Moscow, where he played for 12 hours. His first official performance took place in the club LizzArt ( town Dmitrov) in 2004 and later the same year Nik played in Ballantine’s Bar in Moscow.
Next year Carter in cooperation with DJ Jenya Shpak(aka DJ Esh’), Michel Hogalio and Alex R founded the promo group Fresh Emotions mainly dealing with arranging of night events in the sphere of club life industry in 2005. They had worked together successfully till 2006 . Then their points of views in club life became different so the promo-group broke up.
But soon Nik was involved in another club project - Sympathy Project, which was created for three styles : electro house, progressive house and club progressive trance at first. He made this project with his friends DJ L’Mas and L’Gri. Officially it stopped its existence in the mid of 2008.
By then Nik occupied solid position in techno world, where was famous as Der Technologe. In 2008 he was nominated atTop DJ Awards and took the 34th place in the list of the best 100 techno DJs of Russia. The same year he graduated from music college with major in theory and history of development of general music conception and music styles.
In 2009 he took up teaching and producing of amateur DJs and also began to work on his debut album at the studio. Moreover, he was nominated at Top DJ Awards again.
For this moment Nik Carter is engaged in musical journalism and pursues work on his album with friend Paul Begge.
