Kim Nicolaou – Producer

Early in 1980 he returned to London where he agreed a contract with producer Barry McLoud and founded the production company Kimbar Records, which was responsible for the artist’s releases. In 1981 he gave the song “Ghetto children” (LG Records) to a band from Birmingham, Dessus and is immediately a hit. This is followed by the release of the album “You came to pass” and his concert support with the re-creation of Kimstyle TR (Roger, Gus Zalami-guitars, Chris Chrysafis- synthesizer, Louis Ioannidis Drums) with whom he tours successfully while he is interviewed by BBC’s famed rock DJ Legend Tommy Vance. In 1985 “Whistling Messiah” is released (OK Records) for the Genre Hippy band, which reaches the N.18 of the Swedish Top 20. A period of Soul searching follows until 1989, when he made the big decision to return to Cyprus permanently and becomes a radio producer in the 2nd RIK (CyBC) Program and also works as a DJ at the famous Vip’s Club in Ayia Napa. In the following year he creates with Papadopoulos of SKY Greece the 3rd Channel and has instant success holding Cyprus’s Top Radio DJ slot till he leaves. Together with Alkis Sarris they founded the company Kimstyle Music, through which the recording, production and release of Theo’s album “Theo” takes place. Although once again the sound and production are ahead of their time unfortunately the company has not been able to stand on its feet. After that, he turned to the radio (Mega 88.4 FM), but he continues as a DJ in clubs in Ayia Napa and he also works as a sound producer on new releases like Bad Boyz. He leaves for one more time for England where he operates a Fish ‘n’ Chips restaurant in Kent from 2001-2002, and with his return next year he creates a phenominal P2P website (now closed) but develops a 1st of it’s kind Music/Social Platform with 24/7 Live Tv called FatsaFatsa (Face2Face). Remarkable: Although he has already made an impressive track record in the field, Kim Nicolaou is an anxious person who is constantly offering something else in the field of music. In 2008, Christina Matsa’s “Come on in” song was much ahead of Lily Allen’s song “Not Fair” by one year, making this unique sound from alternative country guitars, which became an international success.
