NiklāvZ, the undisputed heavyweight of the Latvian beat scene has showcased his craft all around the Baltics. Whether it means his participation in electronic music gathering Baltic Trail ’13; winning Satta Outside Beatmaker challenge ’13; playing at Tallinn Music Week ’14 or putting out another EP. This spring, the member of the Dirty Deal Audio crew also played at one of Europe’s biggest festivals Primavera Sound in Barcelona and is looking forward to Positivus Festival and Satta Outside. The bass-drenched style of the Liepaja based producer is influenced by L.A’s beat scene and hip hop music. From his influences on his DJ-curriculum we find the names: Madlib, J. Dilla, Hudson Mohawke ja Flying Lotus. Recently, NiklāvZ collaborated with Lithuanian Justicious on the EP “Sugar, Spice & Everything Nice”, out on Exide Code Recordings. So, it’s only natural that Baltic’s most bassful two beatmakers will go back-to-back at Cultural Dust.
