Nuutti-Iivari Meriläinen aka dcom was born immersed into a world of music, starting with classical music studies and playing several traditional instruments before his teen years. His interest towards electronic dance music and away from more traditional forms was initiated by a trip to Ibiza in 1989, where experiencing the raw intensity of acid house and deepness of new beat kicked off an obsession that has gradually filled up his record shelves and built up his distinctly individual and eclectic taste.
Nitro has been playing records since 1999, when there were mostly hard house/hard trance records spinning on the turntables. During the years 2002–2005 he organized clubs (Trap, Pimiö, Forge, Metro) and "Anchors Up!" summer club cruises in Jyväskylä.
Nowadays he is busy with The X-Rust Organization, which has had their own stage in every Konemetsä festival, for example. Nitro's current style consists mainly of electro, breakbeat and techno in all of it's forms.
