Marija Nikolic aka. N-tchbl, born and raised in Serbia. Growing up on darkened and rather depressive sounds of ’90 Seattle grunge scene and new wave sound, bands like Sonic Youth, Nirvana, Joy Division, Depeche Mode and somewhat more epic Pink Floyd left a deep scar that shows up as present even in her nowadays sound.
At the end of 90’s she discovered electronic music. Deep Dish, Satoshi Tomiie, Hernan Cattaneo, John Digweed, Sasha and Martin Garcia brought her to the revelation that progressive house with darkish underground background was something that suits her the most. Obsessed with CD stores and collecting vinyls and CDs she fell in love with it, progressive house was something she wanted to live and love.
In 2008 she became a part of “iFACE Agency”. Played in all Serbian major clubs, also internationally in highly respected venues like Escape and Cacao Beach (Bulgaria) with names like DJ Tarkan, Patrik Skoog, John Deere, DJ Alexandar, Danny Way etc. In july 2010. she won the “EMC - EXIT Music Conference 2010” competition as one of the chosen DJs to attend the EMC on EXIT Festival (Serbia) together with fellow DJs and leaded by names like Josh Wink, Tim Exile, Moderat and many more.
Her music was broadcasted on all of the worldwide radiostations. After a dozen of guestmixes on friskyRadio, including “Artist Of The Week” show in September 2011., her last dream came true – Subliminal on FRISKY brought her the opportunity to present the whole new side of deep and dark progressive sounds, the female way, progressive sounds that made her fall in love with it back in the previous decade and let that sound never be forgotten.
