DJ and producer NDKj aka: Andrea Quirico was born in 1981 in Novara (Italy). He became fascinated with electronic music – especially techno – at a young age and soon started djing himself. His first DJ appearance was in 1998 when he played in some smaller clubs and private parties in Northern Italy. At that time his sound was inspired by some of the big names in the techno scene who were known for playing hard but groovy techno. But “only” djing wasn’t enough and so NDKj followed his own ideas of techno and started producing and experimenting with new sounds.
