Nick Holder is a DJ & producer from Toronto, Canada and the owner of DNH Records. One of the most respected producers in the history of underground house music, Holder’s recordings span a sound range from deep disco vibes, to minimal Chicago-style house.

In the ‘90s, Holder began producing his own tracks and released 12”s for a number of labels like Definitive, Stickmen, his own imprint DNH, and !K7 (which released his first two full-length albums One Night in the Disco, and Back On Track). Furthermore, Holder released many of his productions through NRK Sound Division, including many of his biggest hits such as "I Once Believed in U", "Trying to Find Myself" and ”Da Sambafrique", in addition to full-length efforts From Within, Underground Alternatives, and The Other Side.
