Read the Nikko Alonzo Interview below and share it on social media.


Please tell our readers who you are and what you do?


Hi! I live in the south of France and I produce music since ten years now. On the project of Nikko Alonzo I produce tracks in different genres like Deep House, Tropical House, Nu-Disco, Indie-Dance, Tech-House. My tracks have been released on labels like Kimbouse Records, Big Mama's House, Endemic Digital, Bloxbox Records, Sempai Music, SounTrip Records, Soulves Records…

I have produced "Transatlantic Breath" 2 years ago with another producer from San Francisco (US) and we created this music by exchanging only by e-mails without ever seeing each other!

I have also produced that cover of Guns N Roses with Phil Lewis a nice singer I met in France.

In 2015 I have created a Soundcloud promotional channel called Music On The Beach which can be related to a free music label. We release a free track each month and at the end of the year I produce a mixtape with all the releases of the year.
The first release was a remix I made of the classic track "Praise You" who has met with success with more than 130K plays

I am also working on another project called "South Diamonds" where I produced with my sidekick Greg Diazmantes tracks for the clubs in Progressive House, Electro and Future House genres.


How would you describe your influences and how have they changed over the years?


In the beginning I produced Progressive House tracks with the influences of Axwell, Steve Angello, Dirty South, Eric Prydz, Fedde Le Grand, Avicii.
Over the years I refined my style by producing slower tracks and getting closer to the Deep House. I also liked tropical sounds so I incorporated them into my productions.
Now I'm more influenced by artists like Nora En Pure, EDX, Purple Disco Machine, Claptone,… with groovy vibes!


What´s new right now?


My new track "Dance With Me" is a mix between Deep House and Indie-Dance with a vocal sample and it will be released on the 9th of April on Feel Hype Records.
I have signed on that label because it was a good way to have the track released on the main music platforms like Beatport, iTunes, Spotify… and in the same time to have a good exposure Soundcloud.
I am also working on new tracks in free download for my label Music On The Beach, so stay tuned…
