NILA is a Scottish DJ and producer currently living in Auckland. His passion for dance music started way back in 1992, in his hometown of Edinburgh and after hearing the likes of Dave Angel, Sasha, Carl Cox and Jeff Mills, his obsession rapidly morphed into a way of life.
At the tender age of 16, he began buying records and following labels such as Harthouse, Djax and R&S Records, then after several years honing his craft DJing at numerous house parties, Nila secured his first club spot as the main act. He then went on to play at all the best clubs around Scotland to critical acclaim with a career highlight being invited to create several guest mixes for ‘Beat 106’, Scotland’s premiere dance radio station of the time.
After an extended hiatus from playing, Nila could stand it no more and returned to his musical roots, demonstrating what he’s famous for his superb technical ability and for delivering his own unique style of sexy, progressive and tech-tinged house.
Since 2014, Nila has been invited to guest on many radio stations including:
Frisky Radio, Circle – Ibiza Radio 1, Groundworx Session FM (UK), George FM, DNA Radio FM, Innervisions Radio and Late Night Grooves Radio.
Nila has also been releasing his own music on a number of labels such as: Pro-B Tech Records, ICONYC, Keep Thinking, Hydrogen, Plethora Muzik, Suffused Music, Soundteller Records (to name just a few)!
Since the start of 2018, Nila has been booked at a number of successful events based in Auckland including Aum NYE ‘17, Soronous (where he opened the stage for Guy Manzar, Dave Seaman, James Zabiela and Hernan Cattaneo) and Shipwrecked. Nila has also been booked to support Nick Warren in Oct 18.
Having recently been signed to renowned agency Probtech Global DJ & Artist Management, Nila is just now hitting his stride, so watch this space, because you’ll certainly be hearing a lot more from him in the very near future!
