Andrey Pushkarev (RU)

Born in 1981 in a tiny town of the Pre-Ural region, Votkinsk, I’m a Russian DJ touring worldwide. My sets range from deep, melodic techno, to soul-beating house.

I started DJ-ing at the age of 15 without any prior musical education. After moving to Moscow in 2000, while performing at night, during the day I worked for the Russian branch of the German music distribution company TraumBaum. For 3 years I was overseeing exclusive import of foreign vinyl and DJ gear into Russia. Gradually, I assembled my own collection of 6 000 rare records.

In 2006, I became a resident DJ of the unique web radio that was broadcasting non-commercial techno music for free and without any advertising to 6 000 monthly listeners from 53 countries till the end of summer 2011.

As a result of these rather unusual, deep, melodic and uncompromising techno broadcasts, I started to receive requests to play abroad. My first DJ performance outside of Russia, in 2007, in France, followed by tours in Europe, South America and USA. Recently, I have appeared as the main protagonist of the 2013 documentary feature film Kvadrat, exploring the realities of techno DJing, shot in 5 countries.
