Nikola Perevski – a vocalist, a guitarist and the founder of NOKAUT from 1997.

РNikola was born on March 24, 1978 in Skopje. Music has been his vocation for more than 20 years. As a producer, composer, singer, sound engineer and multi-instrumentalist, he composes music for albums, commercials and movies. Nikola has his own studio for recording, mixing, mastering and production of albums for different music genres.
He started his music education at the age of 5, when he enrolled at а primary school of music in Skopje. Since then, music is his main preoccupation. He finished high school in MBUC “Ilija Nikolovski Luj” and at the moment, he is studying audio production of electronic music and composition at the renowned SAE Institute in Barcelona, Spain.

As a teenager, Nikola was part of a few music bands, one of which is Aperitiv, but the crucial overturn in his life comes with the start of NOKAUT, in 1997. The foundation of the group can be mostly attributed to Nikola’s friendship with Darko Dimitrov, who is now a well-known Macedonian producer and composer. Vladimir Krstevski – Franc is the first member of the older lineup. Then, we have Kiril Kolemishevski and Aco Bogdanovski Konga with whom he performed until 2003, when the members had officially separated.

After the creative break of 3 years, Pere founded the new generation of NOKAUT in 2006, with which he still performs and composes.

Together with NOKAUT, Nikola released three studio albums: “Nokaut” (Knockout), “Do posleden zdiv” (Till the last breath and “Tri” (Three) and held multitudinous concerts. Alongside with that, he participated in many humanitarian events and won significant awards.

As a front man of NOKAUT, Nikola Perevski performed on the same stage with the legendary British group DURAN DURAN, in Skopje, in July 2012. NOKAUT was special guest at the concert.
