Nick Kostoglou a.k.a. Dj Arara is dj-ing at several parties and festivals around the globe since 1997. Born in Greece but raised in Holland, Nick has achieved numerous diplomas in multimedia technology/digital art and also music technology and sound design. Starting at small parties, Nick had his first main debut in the legendairy Elf squat in Amsterdam.
He has been doing many gigs there over the years, which gave him an excellent change to check his skills and work on them and to play some of the best parties he ever had in his life. The vibes and atmosphere in that place have been magic and mindblowing many times and he will carry those memories with him forever as a good and positive stimuli to carry on spreading the message that is in this healing dancemusic. That was just the beginning of an international carrier.
Nowdays, Nick is spinning frequently all over the world in clubs and festivals, playing for labels as Loopsnoo Rec. (Greece), Y.S.E. Rec. (Germany) and Millennium Re. (UK). In 2003, he and Anders Nilsson (Chromosome / Soul Surfer) started the project Andromeda. In January 2004, the first Andromeda album was recorded in Eyelipse Studios in Holland. The result was one of the most up-to date progressive trance record the scene had to offer! Now, Andromeda has already released 3 cd's (2 albums and 1 cd with remixes). Nick changed his style somewhere in 2005. His sound became more less trancy, more electric, more housy and more groovy. That brought him to the decision to put an end in his carrier under the name Andromeda and to continue with his solo project Arara.
