Nikola Baytala playing a 3 hour set of deep techno with Tommy Lexxus and J. Rogers.
One of San Francisco's true musical treasures, DJ/Producer Nikola Baytala has carved his own niche in the urban underground scene. With credentials that include 10 years of DJing experience, membership with the legendary KONTROL and BIONIC crews, a series of memorable releases as one half of S.W.A.T. with partner Rasoul, and regular high-profile DJ gigs all over the world, Nikola has cemented his status as an A-List artist with the kind of distinctive style that must be seen to be appreciated. He has an instinctive need to create and play music from the soul while retaining his true grit mentality. His skills go beyond impeccable mixing; what sets Nikola aside is his finesse for seemless programming, fusing the rarest techno grooves with legendary jack tracks, creating long, complex mixes for the dancefloor. When Nikola steps up to the decks, he's known for turning things up, keeping the room relentlessly vibrating with funky soul-inflicted beats, percussive house melodies, techy kicks, and mean basslines. Nikola is an underground legend here in San Francisco and his closing sets at virtually every underground event since the early 90’s earn him his reputation and leave the city buzzing!!
