Escape to Everest: Niklas Ibach

Fun 'n Funky

It’s December. That means winter break is approaching! But what is this standing in your way? The dreaded, unavoidable final exam week. We here at Yik Yak HQ want to make this stressful time for students easier or at least a little less unpleasant. So we asked our friend Niklas Ibach to create this soothing study mix for those of you grinding it out at the library.

Niklas Ibach is a 20-year-old multi-instrumentalist, producer, and DJ based in Stuttgart, Germany. Starting piano lessons from the age of 6, Niklas became introduced to jazz, opera, and classical music by his mother. As a teenager, he managed to sneak into legendary clubs like Rocker33 in Stuttgart which opened his eyes to the world of electronic club, house, and techno music and inspired him to start creating his own productions, remixes, and edits. Even up to today, this is the foundation of Niklas’ work.

Niklas’s sound is a mixture of driving bass with catchy and emotional melodies to create unique and authentic club tracks. His releases have scored million of plays and have garnered the respect of supporters from all over the world allowing him to travel all over the world to play big nightclubs and festivals. He is currently working with Virgin, Sony, and Ultra Music Records and is set to release a big hit in 2016 with Virgin Records.
