The 169th Local Selection comes highly anticipated as we welcome Irish native and Berlin resident NiKi K. Previously from the ranks of Limerick’s legendary Macronite crew, Niki has gone on to hone her skills and her sound while in Berlin.
Niki has been representing the Irish massive in Berlin for 10 years now, and has honed her skills since her early days as resident with Limerick’s Micronite/Macronite. At the time in Limerick, she was a key influence in developing the sound there, booking a legendary programme of acts across their club nights. These nights have gone on to influence the sounds and bookings coming out of Limerick to this day.
She’s kept busy in Berlin across all elements of music, from working as project manager on Krake Festival for their impressive week long festival which focuses on platforming left-of-kilter electronic music, to being a resident and promoter at the legendary KilleKill club night and label. All this while hosting a show on the fantastic Refugee Worldwide radio!
This mix is a great example of what to expect from a Niki set – groovy, hypnotic and a whole lot of fun. Her track choices are eclectic and her technical style is on point, which her recent sets on Hör showcase her technique and adaptability to take on any genre.
If you’re in Berlin you can catch her close out Globus at Tresor this Friday. More details here. In the meantime, stick this on repeat!
