from Russia with rave...
‘From the ashes of the soviet empire, from the flames of history, rises the proxy. Post 9/11 rave vibes cloaked in muscovite angst. The future and the past rolled up.’ TIGA.
The Proxy’s ascent to the top of what can only be described as Electro Rave has been rapid to say the least. His story reads like a Tolstoy from his native Russia’s epic bookcase, and epic is most certainly a word to use when describing The Proxy’s presence and command of a room demanding more. The best bit is this is only the beginning and already he’s THIS good.
From his hometown just outside Moscow, his passion for music started with breakdance and hip-hop before discovering his beloved Electronic music. DJing to packed out clubs every weekend in Moscow’s district he soon discovered that he had a talent for writing music as well as playing it. Tracks written for fun become something more as The Proxy decided it was time to take his own brand of experimental Electronic squeaks, beats, bass and other blends to the world.
Launching himself with 2 key tracks on myspace that were perfected and polished, he approached Boyz Noize and Tiga as his two favourite producers and djs. Tiga’s office faxed him a note the next day offering him a contract. Turbo Recordings had found its protégé.
The rest is history... The Proxy has firmly reserved his place in the Electronic hall of fame.
His first single ‘Destroy’ became an immediate anthem, championed by djs and frenzied crowds alike, his follow-up ‘Decoy’ has been dubbed THE post-nu-rave anthem of 2008 and was followed up by the hauntingly beautiful ‘Dance in Dark’.
‘Raven’ has torn up dance floors in 2009 globally and as he releases his debut album on Turbo and continues to bring floors across the world to fever pitch with his live sets. He truly is one of the freshest and most dynamic sounds around.
We wait with baited breath to see what this young Muscovite sensation will serve up next. Whatever it is, you know it’ll make you raise your Kalashnikovs and join the Russian revolution that is The Proxy.
