Producing Drum And Bass for 12 years, now at the age of 29, he has more then 60 vinyl and more then 20 CD releases.
> Together with Valery Sholevski (Ogonek), in 2001 he began intense promotion of drum and bass in the boarders of Bulgaria, sending “patriotic” messages to the young generation and playing a lot in the busiest clubs in Sofia (the capital city of Bulgaria.), mainly with the H.M.S.U. crew.
