Nico D, born Nicholas Albert, Holter has had a more international upbringing than most. He was born in Paris and moved frequently from country to country with his family before settling down in Oslo, Norway.
While in high school he met DJ Daniel Lion and Admiral P from Zambia and their joint passion inspired them to start Ark Manifest Sound System.
With Lion behind the turntables and Admiral P and Nico D on the mic, Jah Ark Manifest would soon stand out as the #1 sound system in Norway.
Nico released his debut single “Ruff Times” a collaboration with Jah Mason that went all the way to #1 on the national chartlists in Jamaica in 2009 and was on the list for 25 weeks!
