Music be the only sound that drives him, up and coming DJ/producer NICKYP is ready, set and go - determined to play the game of it and shoot to high score. His relentless energy reaching out far beyond his home base of West Hollywood, Nicholas Potoczny is the roar of Hard Dance. It’s only a matter of time until his story unfolds, telling us all about a promising career and future.

Few things other than music would be able to lock the attention of a young Nicholas. Growing up a curious teenager, he explored the entire spectrum of music before finding his one true love in Melodic Hardstyle and elements of Mainstream EDM. Fascinated by the big, bulky distortion of alternative metal and rock, the transition to Electronic Production was easily made. As America witnessed a renaissance in electronic dance music, NICKYP was caught by the beat, exploring the endless possibilities of technology. And that’s how this story starts to tell.


The energy of nightlife was calling, and boy, did he hear it. Rocking the decks of America's finest clubs, from Pacha NYC and Highline Ballroom to Webster Hall, Austin's Shakespeares on 6th and Las Vegas's Fremont Experience, no venue was safe to the raw talents of NICKYP. The night lights forever lure, and hold NICKYP in a tight grip to this very day, enraptured from the first until the very last beat. Storming America's finest rooms, facing ever-growing, maddening crowds, he has proven to be an outstanding DJ, with stamina for the bigger, better and greater things the scene has to offer.


His signature Hardstyle sound, one of a kind, only to become the next big "IT SOUND" of EDM. Supported by Showtek, Ummet Ozcan, Juicy M, Sander Van Doorn, Chuckie, Vinai, Jewelz & Scott Sparks, as well as many other. Shows that there’s many more goodies to come from this rising star. NICKYP is a name to see, remember and keep an eye on.
