As a young boy in Denver, Colorado, NIKITA’s childhood was similar to that of other extraordinary creative youth; days filled with church and show choir, playing the piano, and dancing to his mother’s R&B albums.
“BIO: written by Jack O’Shaughnessy. On the same day Dolly Parton, Janis Joplin, Edgar Allan Poe, his mother and grandmother were born, so too did San Francisco DJ, NIKITA, begin his enchanted existence.
From an early age, NIKITA always knew he wanted to be an entertainer. Then, in 1993, a chance encounter with house music at an underground warehouse party would prove to be a pivotal moment in his life, ultimately guiding NIKITA towards the charmed life he lives today.
Today, NIKITA and music partner, RAY ZUNIGA (Co-founder and label owner of Touch of Class Records), produce an international music experience called LIVING.us. Their events started as an underground in Brooklyn, and they’ve taken the brand to San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, and Europe for Amsterdam Dance Event for the past two years. In 2018, WeArePulse declared LIVING as one of the Top10 events at ADE”
