Featured Artist Katia Nicole
Every once in a while we find an EDM artist we get so excited about we want to make sure the whole world knows their name, listens to their music and ends up loving them as much as we do. This is the case with the very talented Katia Nicole. She is only in her teens but has the poise of someone in their 30’s, Katia is a triple threat of musical talent, dance skills, and acting credits- not to mention a glam, edgy sense of style and definitely an ‘It Girl’ to watch.
Born and raised in Homestead, Florida just minutes from Miami, Katia Nicole knew from a young age that she wanted to perform. She began dancing at age 8- jumping right into ballet, hip hop, gymnastics and jazz. Just a year later she was selected for a coveted spot on The Miami Heat’s elite Junior Dance Team.
From there Katia began to hone her singing and acting skills in addition to dancing, and it wasn’t long before Katia was cast in the worldwide feature film Step Up Revolution. Katia began further developing her voice- and her standout vocals on her hit single “The Girl Can’t Help It,” produced by Grammy winner David Aude, make it clear that Katia has talent to spare. At the young age of 15, Katia Nicole was the youngest electronic dance music (EDM) artist in the country and already is on her way to the top. The music video for her hit single “The Girl Can’t Help It” was an instant hit on YouTube, solidifying her major social media presence. “The Girl Can’t Help It” has been featured on Kidzbop, FanLaLa, MTV, VH1, Vevo, AOL, and more. This Saturday Mix 247 EDM Top 20 Countdown will feature “The Girl Can’t Help it.” Make sure to tune into the countdown at 12pm ET/9am PT to find out where Katia’s hit debuts.
Katia Nicole has already been crowned the next big thing in dance music. When she is not strutting her stuff on the stage and in music videos, she’s in the studio working on new music. For her debut album, Katia teamed up with DJ/producer Dave Aude and singer/songwriter Luciana to create some of the hottest songs in EDM. Katia’s killer style is every bit as edgy as her sound- from sequins to sparkles and everything in between, Katia takes the entire look into consideration and often helps create the looks for her music videos, red carpet appearances, and performances. Her passion for fashion is (almost) matched by love of trying out new beauty looks- from edgy hairstyles, make up, down to nails- and at 15, Katia is already a pro stylist in her own right. An Instagram-addict who loves to travel in her free time, Katia now resides in Los Angeles.
“The Girl Can’t Help It” music video features YouTube superstar Sam Pottorff of O2L – who has a whopping 1 million subscribers on his own- as Katia’s love interest. The song, produced by super-producer Dave Aude and remixed by the world-famous DJ Escape. The video broke out on Billboard on February 7th and debuted at number 7. Shot in Los Angeles at University Gateway the music video follows Katia and Sam as they are leaving a building: the two misconnect and get into a high speed car chase. Katia performs in the backseat of the car while racing through the streets of downtown Los Angeles. Following the car chase, Sam and Katia meet up at a downtown high rise where Katia performs “The Girl Can’t Help It” again and the two finally connect at the end of the video.
In addition to the club-ready DJ Escape remix, other acclaimed DJs that have remixed “The Girl Can’t Help It” include DJ Sneaky Hybrid and Dj Radio Punks.
