After purchasing his first set of decks in 1988 and working with a hip-hop crew in his native Austria, Nick packed up his turntables and relocated to the sunny shores of Australia 17 years ago, where he has been heavily involved with the local music community and club culture as a DJ & producer (MetaBass, Foreign Heights, etc), promoter (JamRock!, StepForward!, Make It Clap!, Dancehall Queen Australia), radio host (2SER, FBi, ABC, SBS) and music educator (Australian Institute of Music etc).
Over the course of his career he has performed at most major festivals and venues, at corporate & celebrity events, international movie launches, fashion shows, music awards, etc. Nick was the first hiphop DJ in Australia to sign a major label deal for a DJ-mixed album (‘Blazin’ Vol 1 / Universal Music, 2003, w/Nino Brown) and has since released a number of other albums, compilations and singles. As part of the dynamic trio Foreign Heights he was nominated for an ARIA in 2007, the main award in the Australian music industry.
