As well as holding key residencies in Manchester Nik has also played for the undisputed leading underground house brand TRADE for over 7 years. Starting in their infamous test lounge Nik soon joined the line up of fierce rulin Trade residents playing at events across the UK. His first official set as a resident was at the legendary club Turnmills for Trades 16th Birthday, a venue that first inspired Nik to become a DJ and producer back in the 90’s.
