Nivlem first began DJing in 1996. Though he fell in love with psychedelic trance way back then and continues to spin it to this day, he's always had expansive tastes in music and first cut his teeth as a DJ spinning chill sets at house parties in those rooms with big couches, pillows on the floors, and lots of people with strange big balloons and even bigger smiles. Fast forward a couple of decades and he still enjoys experiencing and spinning chill out music. While his chill sets can be eclectic and varied with contemporary releases as well as tunes from the vaults, he tends to include a healthy portion of psychedelic dub and other brain tickling bass heavy styles.

Nivlem is a co-founder of Central Texas' FYB Crew, pushing psytrance and other psychedelic styles through intimate and intentional gatherings in Texas since 2012.
