Nikhil Suresh is a true global citizen, hailing from India and having lived in over 10 countries across Asia, Europe, and Africa. Currently, he finds his creative haven in the vibrant city of Los Angeles, which he proudly calls home.

Nikhil's career is punctuated with impressive milestones. He had the honor of contributing to a GRAMMY-nominated recording, "The Lost Boy" by Cordae. His portfolio also boasts collaborations with esteemed artists like Machine Gun Kelly, Cordae, Wiz Khalifa, Lil Wayne, Simple Plan, and Joshua Bassett, among others. His tenure as Chief Engineer at Clearlake Recording Studios and Fever Recording Studios further enriched his skill set, overseeing recording sessions spanning genres from classical to hip-hop, and imparting knowledge to interns and assistants.

Nikhil's journey into music was sparked by keyboard lessons during his formative years, which evolved into a deep affinity for guitar-driven music, inspired by the likes of Nirvana. His musical endeavors began in 2007, culminating in self-recorded songs using rudimentary microphones. By 2010, his recording setup had improved, equipped with a cheap condenser mic and mixer. Today, Nikhil's setup gravitates towards mixing, featuring the esteemed SSL Sigma and Apogee Symphony. His fidelity to ATC monitors is unwavering, and his aspirations include incorporating the SSL GComp and Fusion into his mix buss toolkit.

At Vintage King, Nikhil is brimming with excitement to be surrounded by high-end audio gear and to lend his seasoned expertise in guiding others towards making the right gear purchasing decisions, drawing from his extensive experience.

What hobbies do you enjoy?
Is there really something else to enjoy outside of making music and making things sound good? When I am forced to step away from twisting and turning knobs, I enjoy photography, videography, and trying out different flavors and brands of ice cream.
