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 today’s electronic and chillout music.
The sounds created by Nick in his studio are heartfelt expressions of his concerns for the future — whatever it may bring.
Side liner has released 16 full albums:
“Emotional Diving” (2006),
“Once Upon A Time” (2007),
“My Guardian Angel” (2008) ,
”Crying Cities” (2009),
”Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle” (2009) ,
“Human Recycle” (2010),
“Dream Stealers (2011),
”Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 2” (2012),
“I A Bird Now” (2012) ,
“Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 3 (2013,
“9 Years Side Liner” (2013),
“Water Everywhere” (2013),
“Missing Pieces Of A Puzzle 4” (2013),
«Out Of Town» (2016) with Aviron,
«Last Breath» (2017),
«No Vember» (2019)
all through Cosmicleaf Records
and numerous eps and tracks in compilations.
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 Liner’s 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 Liner’s chilling vision of the future collides head-on with the realities of a perplexing modern world.”
Nick Miamis is involved with music business since 1999 and so far has produced 400+ tracks, in 130+ releases -some of whom were on “chillout” compilations as well as his own albums.
He is also the label manager of Cosmicleaf Records and her new techno imprint Koslif.
He has perform in countries as UK, Spain, Germany, Russia, Ukraine, Greece, Serbia, France, Hungary, Switzerland, in festivals like Let Me Know, Samsara, Shankra, Summer NeverEnd, Trimurti, Wonderland Experience, FSI, Omni etc and venue events beside names as Juno Reactor, Desert Dwellers, Astrix, HiProfile, Solar Fields, Aes Dana, Avalon, Egorythmia, Ben Svendensen, Serafim Tsotsonis to name a few.
His styles covers a big variety of «Chill out» and can be either soft or groovy based on the event he is invited, as he masters the flow and understanding of each event and listeners need. He practices weekly with new mixes he delivers through his online channels in Youtube, Soundcloud as also and his radio shows in Digitally Imported (USA) and Chromanova (Germany).
His music also has been featured and in WYM mix shows of Cosmic Gate (Blackhole Recordings) and in Solarstone’s Pure Trance Episode’s, also rotates in background music playlists of 5stars hotels in Mexico and other Ho.Re.Ca business and retailers around the world and rotates also in background music playlists of 5stars hotels in Mexico and other Ho.Re.Ca business and retailers around the world.

Also he can combine the sounds of a professional’s guitar player Fotis Kostopoulos in his show with remarkable sonic results. Through the marriage of electronica ambient and guitar leaks and phrases accompanied with traditional instruments from the east results a unique experience for the audience.
