He has recorded and produced music and technology since starting at the famous Record One Studio in 1979. Here's a short list of his credits with Legacy, Contemporary and Emerging Artists: Neil Young (The Volume Dealers), Billy Joel, Rod Stewart, Stan Getz, Herbie Hancock, Keith Richards, Herb Alpert, KISS, Steve Perry... - John Mayer, Los Lonely Boys, LeAnn Rimes, Big Head Todd & The Monsters, The Mavericks... - ZEDD, RACES, The Vim Dicta, Incan Abraham, China’s Bruce Liang Film work spans "The Breakfast Club", "Singles", Scorcese's "Lightning In A Bottle", and Beyonce's "Cadillac Records".

He is best known for his work with Neil Young's exceptional Freedom and This Note's For You, as well as Warren Zevon's Sentimental Hygiene (a record that inspired the R.E.M./Zevon collaboration Hindu Love Gods, which Bolas also produced).

One of Bolas' trademarks is his vocal production, which always comes across clearly and loudly on his records (see the Circle Jerks' Oddities, Abnormalties and Curiosities for auditory proof). For the complete discography of Niko's current work visit his web site at: http://www.neeks.com
