Nick Karsten – “They Will Ask Me What They Want To Ask”


Nick Karsten was born in Ljubljana, Slovenia. Soon he felt that he had DJ skills and found his place behind the turntable. His official DJ career started when he became a resident DJ at one popular club in Ljubljana and remained there for some time.

Success, praise and progress in the mixing technique led to a position of resident DJ in a cutting-edge futuristic club in the capital of Slovenia – Ljubljana, where he played consistently. In addition to the resident position he also played in many clubs around the country where he gathered a lot of experience.

He performed abroad as well. His energetic and persuasive sets fill the dance floor with energy and never leave the audience indifferent. Check out Nick’e exclusive Q&A with S&S below.
