Telegram and Twitter duplicate what I post on Facebook, with occasional extra content.

On Vkontakte, I write in the Russian language for my fans out of from Russia and CIS.

Upcoming event: a talk on music career at Audio School

🇷🇺 Moscow, December 5, 2017

I’m excited to announce that I’ll be giving a talk on a music career at Audio School.

Audio School is a leading Moscow-based school of electronic music production and the art of DJing. Six years ago I graduated Audio School as a student, and now I’m delighted to come back, this time with a new role.

I’ll be talking about career decisions, marketing strategies, and mindset of a music producer in today’s world — all based on my experience, no theorycrafting.

Watch also a video invitation.

Timetable:

20:00—21:00 Talk
21:00—21:30 Q&A session

The event is free for anyone to join. You must register in advance as there is a limited number of seats.

P.S. This event is a first of its kind for me, but potentially, I’m open for giving a talk on a conference, music production school, or any other music-related educational meetup. Get in touch if it sounds interesting to you.

Party promoters! Presumably, this December I’ll be in Moscow for about a week. If you wanted to book me for your event, this is a great opportunity. Get in touch if it sounds exciting to you, or forward this message to someone you know who may find it interesting.

Psytrance flyers 2005—2007

I was cleaning up some old folders on my disk drive and suddenly discovered a quite nice archive of Psytrance flyers from the parties that took place in Moscow city in 2005—2007. Unfortunately, most flyers are lost so these are the only left. And yes, I was partying hard!

I thought it would be fun to looking at these pictures now, a decade later, especially for that generation of ravers who already have kids: “Look, son, that is where your old man used to rave!”. I think Moscow trancers (and some graphic designers, just for lolz) will appreciate these pictures.

Who is still making Progressive Psy parties in Moscow?

Since I moved to Israel I lost the connection with the Moscow Psy scene, but I’m curious to know: are there any promoters who still making Progressive Psy parties in Moscow? Who are those brave guys? Is anybody bringing to Moscow artists like E-Clip, Sideform, Egorythmia, Protonica, Lyctum, Zyce, Mindwave, and the list goes on?

As far as I can see by the flyers, Moscow promoters make only Full-on parties with the same headlines for a second decade in a row. Am I wrong?

Update

We’ve got a little discussions on my page in Vkontakte, I’ll put a link here, just in case.
