DJ and producer NDKj aka Andrea Quirico was born in 1981 in Novara (Italy).

He became fascinated with electronical 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 the North of Italy. At that time his sound was inspired by some of the big names in techno scenes 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. In 2004 he met fellow Italian DJ Mauro Alpha and they decided to work together – and they still do today. NDKj’s first production “Dark Ages” was released in February 2006 on Holzplatten [HOLZ082] together with Drumcomplex and Chris Binder. Only three months later his first collaboration with Mauro Alpha was out on Boxer Sport label - “Pallette” [Boxer039]. In summer 2006 he also got to know Oliver Lieb and became an artist of his label Maschine. NDKj first EP called “Put it where you ant” ”[MAS10] was just released by end of November. At the same time NDKj, Mauro Alpha and the Italian DJ & producer Andrea Paganin founded “The Dust Soldiers” – its first release is to be expected in stores on October 2007, a particular lucky month for the artist, that debuts into Polar Noise, the newcomer label by Luca Morris and Paul C, with the single “Scale” which have a huge support by artists like Karotte, Dominik Eulberg, Monika Kruse, John Aquaviva, Kanzyani, Markantonio etc..
At the same time he begin a collaboration with the Italian famous label Fahrenheit by Mario Piu’, remixing the single “Big Sucker” by Alex Catalani & Claudio Maura. Also on Fahrenheit is planned on November a new release called “Bongi”, remixed by the friends Mario Piu’ with Alex Catalani & Claudio Maura, Marcello Concialdi and Andrea Paganin.
