Nd1ko


INDEPENDENT, NYC




nd1ko, real name Kiana Mickles, splits her time as a DJ and as the New York staff writer at electronic music publication Resident Advisor, where she primarily champions queer and BIPOC artists across the US dance music underground.

Coming of age in the Lower East Side, her love for techno and East Coast club grew in tandem with her interest in electronic music's rich Black history, as well as the dance floor's potential as a community-building tool.

This background informs her journalism, as well as her various club-focused radio mixes.
