Side Liner began as a project in 2004 by Nick Miamis in Athens, Greece to explore the emotional side of music and give shape to the events of the day. His music is best noted for the continuous flow of thought it creates, often visually stimulating and evocative of a particular mood — without the jarring interruptions of so much of todayĘs electronic and chillout music.
The sounds created by Nick in his studio by the sea are heartfelt expressions of his concerns for the future — whatever it may bring.
Side liner has released 15 studio albums, several eps & compilations.
Also he released a special CD edition [PROTECT OUR OCEANS] of “I Am A Bird Now” album for Tangaroa Blue Foundation a not-for-profit organisation focused on the health of our marine environment, and coordinates the Australian Marine Debris Initiative
The critics have taken note of the body of work from Miamis and have begun to help spread the word— or the music. As Groove Magazine perfectly described, “Side LinerĘs music is a journey through sublime textures that hopscotch between comforting warmth and oblique menace. Running the gamut from ambient to breaks, (the music) soars through dreamy soundscapes where Side LinerĘs chilling vision of the future collides head-on with the realities of a perplexing modern world.”
Nick Miamis began releasing his music in 1999, his first record deal with Discobole Records. under various names before Side Liner project, his work was mostly considered “trance”. Miamis has created or produced moren than 400 tracks, covering more than 130releases -some of whom were on “chillout” compilations as well as his own albums.†
He has perform also in many countries such as Switzerland, United Kingdom, Spain, Ukraine, Germany, Russia, France, Serbia, Greece etc.
