Biography

Niels Alister 't Hart aka Niles Alister was born in Vuren (NL) in 1976 and grew up in Spijkenisse. His love for house music started when he was about 14 years old. After experimenting with the raw Rotterdam Hardcore (gabber) sound, Niles found out that this wasn't rigth for him. After visiting the basement in club Night Town in Rotterdam for the first time Niles knew it! Inspired by his role models: Miss Monica, Marcello and Harry Lemon8, Niles chose his musical path. The mellow house sound is what he was attracted to. Every free minute is spent in one of Rotterdam's vinyl import stores to find that one record that no one else has.

 

During his college period Niles practices as much as he can and the first bookings are a fact. Very unexpectedly Niles makes drastic move and starts his real estate carreer and quits dj-ing but fortunately not forever.

 

The love for the "Wheels of Steel" remains and after a break of nearly 5 years Niles Alister decides to pick up where he left of. In 2004 Niles Alister swipes of the dust of his vinyl and decks! It doesn't take long before his sound is supported by various organisations and (inter)national dj's. Niles Alister is seriously back on track!

 

Niles differs from others because of his mix skills and the variety in his style. Classic samples are mixed with current house, tech house and UK jackin House so everyone can find recognition in his style!!
