One of Erik’s nights, Dirty Grooves, got nominated best club night of the year 2 years in a row in an online clubbing magazine as well as being nominated ‘DJ of the year’ by same magazine 3 times.
Erik has played with some of the best DJs in the world including Desyn Masiello, Omid16B, Demi, Danny Howells, Rowan Blades, Luke Fair, Nic Fanciulli, Audiofly, Yousef to name a few. balErik’s blend of deep house and driving techno music has taken him to gigs around the world in places such as London, Russia, Poland, Croatia, San Francisco, Miami, New York, Bulgaria, Finland, Sweden, Latvia and Dubai.
Erik dedicates all his spare time to his musical passion. Whether he is making music, hunting for tunes, promoting for his next party, doing edits or special remixes music is always on his mind. His dedication has gained him support from the likes of Digweed, Deep Dish, Behrouz and Nic Fanciulli and Desyn Masiello, who gave him a position as A&R for his Alternative Route record label because of his keen ear for finding amazing new tracks.
In 2007 balErik set up a new digital label, Discoteca Music, with his partners Dana Bergquist, Tom Morgan, Luke Fair and Somnus corp. The label has numerous successful releases including two that are included on Renaissance and Global Underground compilations.

Erik has begun producing his own tracks with his partner Vadim Yershov, which is proving to be quite a successful duo. They recently released and EP on Timewriter’s Plastic City label and they have a few in the pipeline for Discoteca Music this year including ‘‘Do Your Dance’ and ‘Everybody’. This year we can also expect their boot leg of Earth Wind and Fire’s song System Of Survival, which has been picked up by Guillame and the Couto Dumonts who will be releasing it as an exclusive white label.
As Discoteca Music grows in popularity with each EP released, balErik is making sure this momentum keeps growing by finding the artists of today who are making the music of tomorrow. He incorporates all these musical gems into his sets which make them so unique, a nice blend of old and new, tech and house and everything in between mixed in such a fluid way your body just can’t stop moving!

"One the most entertaining and quality up and coming DJ’s around. Knows how to move a floor and doesn’t try to be to cool. Also good with the ladies so I've heard. Not bad for an ex reindeer driver" (Rowan Blades).
