Born in September 1985 in Greece, Nick Tsitlakidis, could never be described as the average Greek kid. His first contact with electronic music at an early age, was with certainty a life-defining event that turned him into a passionate listener. As the years passed, he gradually became fonder of the various soundscapes created by computers and synthesizers and begun exploring the various electronic genres that either existed or have just started appearing. It was that time that he started discovering house music.
In Nick’s case, listening was not enough though. The next logical step was to create his own music. At the age of 15 he started creating his first loops being influenced by a wide range of artists and at the same time trying to experiment with technology as much as possible.
After gaining experience and settling to a specific sound he decided to seek professional opinions about his music. During 2005, the Greek progressive house scene was evolving rapidly so the obvious choice was to send some demos to already established Greek djs. Kosmas Epsilon and Andrew K were the first to receive the demos and both were very impressed with his music.
It didn’t take long for the releases to start surfacing. The first digital-only releases were followed by original tracks and remixes for well known labels and producers, two vinyl releases and exclusive tracks on compilations. Some of the labels he has worked with are Black Hole, System, Beat Freak and Hunya Munya.
During that time, Distant Fragment's tracks were also getting the support of a great variety of djs accross the globe such as John Digweed, Hernan Cattaneo, Tiesto and Markus Schulz who have charted or played his tracks in their radio shows and gigs.
With so many new music genres popping up and merging with each other, new influences on Distant Fragment's sound and a transition to other genres besides house were just a matter of time. The result from this transition has just started showing up.
