- MEGAMIX 1,2,3
For the production and remix of the records he collaborated with:

Nicola Lavacca is the first superstar DJ in Greece. And this has nothing to do with the huge coverage he had from the media, but with the fact that the designation “first” is intertwined with his career. Nicola was the first to release a mixed compilation in the country (maybe in Europe too), the first to remix a song here, the first DJ to enter the studio and become a sought-after producer, the first to contribute to the release of the first Greek maxi single, the first to MC when playing. He was the one who brought the first Technics MK2 to Greece, the one who highlighted the role and importance of the DJ in a club and managed to raise the fees. “Lavacca plays it”: an event and a line that was enough to make a song a hit. There is no English-language Greek song released at that time that has come to be considered a classic, reference or cult today that does not have his signature in the production and/or remix. A collection of his choices, mixed and not, that did not become rapturous. A whole generation of DJs consider him a reference point and the trigger to get into the profession. Nicola Lavacca was the resident DJ at two of the most iconic clubs to ever exist in this country, Autokinis and Divina.

Nicola Lavacca was the resident DJ at two of the most iconic clubs to ever exist in this country, Autokinis and Divina. At a time when abroad clubs and DJs are considered cultural relics of a country and there these people are honored by the respective institutions, here we remain stubbornly behind. We obviously overlook the offer of some, initially out of pure ignorance. Nicola Lavacca has written his name in capital letters in the musical history of this country and has deeply influenced it. With 45+ years of experience in the field of music and DJing.
