Born in Romania, now living in Barcelona, he embraced the love for electronic music from an early age as an 80s kid, chasing anything electronica through mixtapes and late night radio shows.
As the years passed, he developed a wide musical taste spectrum going from rave, drum and bass, jungle and big beat through the 90s, moving on to club and groove house, breaks and deep house in the early 2000s and the following years.
Eventually he felt the need to express more then just listening to music.
As a logical progression, in the early 2000s he had his first chance to touch the cdjs at a beach club called Enigma, by the seaside, in Mamaia beach located right next to the town’s house music epicentre represented by Shark & Celentano beach where the town’s first baby steps into pure electronica happened, nowdays the surrounding area is more known for the Sunwaves festival.
He later got his own residency at Impala Club Café where the passion for vinyl was born. The club had an attic/loft full of vinyl crates from London that were begging for playing. Crate digging and vinyl DJing, pure Nirvana was one step away.
Along the residency at Impala, he had summer long collaborations with Sun of The Beach beach club wich would later on turn into LUV Club in Constanta. It was a great experience as It allowed him to dj for crowds in the outdoors, something wich wasn’t the case before.
Nowdays he is getting more and more involved with the Barcelona dj and electronic music production scene.
