DJ MIX #13 mixed by Alin Prandea

Passionate about music and dance, in the ’80s and the ’90s, he choose to be the one that illustrates all the sounds heard during the “electro-classical” period – a break-dancer, and an amateur DJ, taking into account the existing technique at that time. In time he passed from the break dance moves at a more abstract and eclectic dance. This is how he got to dance in a contemporary dance company on the scene of the Odeon Theater in Bucharest. For 5 years he transpose the word in movement, using abstract and repetitive gestures to the music of composers artists such as:
Michael Nyman, Ravi Shankar, Dead Can Dance, Hans Zimmer, Loreen McKennitt, Chopin, Philip Glass, Schumann, Mozart, Jethro Tull, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk, during which he also accumulated a vast and varied culture. In parallel with the theater activity, the permanent need of artistic expression made him return to his old passion – being a DJ. This time the more complex technique allows him to mix, in a way that can sometimes be hard to understand; everything he knows has been inspired from classical and modern music. An important step in developing and defining him as a club DJ has been working with Space Club, by being a resident DJ in 2001 and 2002.

Here he had the opportunity to mix with important DJs from the global electronic music scene.There followed a series of parties in the most important clubs in Bucharest and across the country. In 2005 he made his first steps in music production. In the same time he develops the “CROMOZOMI” project together with Miss DJ Mara. Both the remixes for various artists and the personal productions are found in releases of labels like: Microtech Records / Dot One Records / LOK Records / Animation Records / Baile Music. All these productions were in the play-lists of DJs such as Loco Dice, Reboot, Tini, Davide Squillace, Someone Else, Pirupa, DJ Sneak, Marco Carola, Laurent Garnier, Monoroom, George G by Monochrome, Bobby Deep, Neuroxyde, Francesco Bonora, Dany Casarano, Guido Nemola, Manu – L, and Jose Maria Ramon. He is a declared fan of vinyl’s but also a fan of the cd’s. Starting from the premise that nothing is new, everything repeats itself, he seeks to combine sounds in a sampler’s own version of the classical, modern and traditional music. The live sets are a true journey in music where you can find both present pieces but also a lot of old school pieces, songs that were defining in time for the development of electronic dance music. Therefore he expects an open public eager to experience with the artist.
