Slide on Me: Ottawa artist Niko of SNS enlists Hanny Kroos for “Waist Line”

Ottawa-based up-and-comer Niko recently dropped his second single in 2019, just weeks after the release of “Slide on Me.”

The Dior Young-produced “Slide on Me” recently passed 5K streams on Spotify, while the Stain Visualz-directed video which released shortly after the single has been viewerd over 7K times to date.

His new Hanny Kroos-assisted “Waist Line” was released to major streaming platforms on Aug. 1 including Apple Music and Spotify via Studio No Sleep aka SNS.

Although Niko only has a pair of tunes on the digital streaming outlets, he’s actually been writing lyrics and making music for quite some time. Here’s a bit more background info for those just getting familiar with his work:

Niko dropped his first record on SoundCloud in 2016 on a Russ instrumental for “Ballin.” The song quickly reached 10K streams, and then he came back with another banger that same year called “Pull Up On Em” which put up another 20K.

He took a short break after that but came back hard at the beginning of 2018 with “No Hooks” to respond to a diss an artist named TLO had released. He followed that up with several videos including the visuals for “No Hooks (TLO Diss)” directed by Bryce Guitor which has been viewed over 25K times to date. There’s also “Hottest in the City” with PG21, Treus Jones, Swisxh, and Harden which has also put up over 20K since its release.

Niko is a member of No Sleep Music Group managed by M-Press Live, and owner of Studio No Sleep (SNS).

“SNS took him in, heard his story and decided that they were going to turn his dreams to reality.”

Another thing that Niko fans will be excited about is he’s got over 200 unreleased songs in the vault and continues to make new music as well. Within 6 months Niko had recorded over 50+ tracks working with SNS.
