Niklas Wandt, born 1988, Media Studies graduate, plays drums, percussion and synthesizers, produces, writes lyrics and sings in a wide variety of musics encompassing psychedelic pop, tribalist Kraut dance, wave and industrial.
He is also a freelance music journalist for German radio (mostly for WDR) and a voice-over actor (for documentaries, advertising and literature readings.)

A longtime music enthusiast and record digger, Niklas has recently focussed his cross-genre interests on the leftfield dance music scene he first encountered at Düsseldorf’s revered Salon des Amateurs. His various projects are well documented on respected underground labels as Themes For Great Cities, Growing Bin and Multi Culti. As a DJ, he can be heard at increasing frequency in clubs around Europe as well as at his tri-monthly parties at Berlin’s finest little basement hideout Sameheads.
Collaborations include the heavily percussive duo of Wolf Müller & Niklas Wandt, the German language Wave project by the name of Neuzeitliche Bodenbeläge and works with producers Kris Baha and Sascha Funke. The oldest occasionally active project is the improvised Kraut tribalism trio called Transport.
Concert travels have led him all over Europe, to China, Israel and the United States.

Since April 2019, Niklas Wandt is one of four hosts of the relaunched WDR 3 Jazz & World , hosting one working week per month!
