Defining yourself as a DJ is a lengthy process, it starts when you first become interested in music

and stays with you throughout your career: fluid, flexible, tangible. For Yulia Niko, it began with

buying ‘Western music’ from her local record store. Bor

n in Russia during a time of great political

change, her post


Glasnost life opened up unimaginable opportunities.

Quickly falling under the spell of House music, she learned to DJ and was soon a resident in the

best club in Sochi. After getting her Law deg

ree, Yulia relocating first to Greece, then New York

where she wrote two albums worth of material which ended up getting her signed to a number of

labels. Her break out track, ‘Zurich’, a personal highlight of her career, was snapped up by Get

Physical to

widespread acclaim. No wonder she received a coveted ‘One to Watch’ from Mixmag

the same year.

Finally moving to Berlin, where she currently lives and works, Yulia refocused her attention and

wrote another brace of tracks, two of which were picked up by Da

mien Lazarus’ Rebellion imprint.

Now signed to some impressive top


tier labels, Yulia’s studio craft was being recognised by an



growing army of high profile admirers including Dennis Ferrer, Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, and

many others who were playing and

charting her music.

Yulia’s minimal deep tech sound is heavily influenced by Detroit and Chicago house. A sound that

Watergate Club, Berlin loved so much, they made her a resident. She is also currently busy in the

studio working on new material for Crosst

own Rebels, Get Physical, Objektivity, and Hottrax.

Her remix for Italoboyz ‘Midnight Summer Dream’ featuring Durant has featured in the Beatport

Top 100 charts for 9 months already, equally, her ‘Lost Souls’ remix for Eekle Kleijn has picked

up impressive

admiration as well with over 37,000 plays on Spotify. Radio support has come from

the UK’s Danny Howard on BBC Radio One as well as underground plays on John Digweed’s

globally renowned Transitions podcast.

Besides her incredible DJ and studio skills, Yul

ia has impressive business acumen. Setting up

her first record label, TochnoTechno back in 2016 showed the tougher end of her musical palette

and helped her understand the logistics of the business. Now, in 2019, she is delivering her new

label project, Li

be Vibe, for her own productions and to champion other talented artist.
