The Proxy’s ascent to the top of what can only be described as Electro Rave has been rapid to say the least.
From the ashes of the Soviet empire, his story reads like a Tolstoy from his native Russia’s enormous bookcase, and enormous is most certainly a word to use when describing The Proxy’s presence and command of a room demanding more. The best bit? 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 hungry Russians in packed out clubs every weekend it wasn’t ong before he discovered he could write as well as he could play. Thank Gorbachev - his own brand of experimental Electronic squeaks, beats, bass and other blends are now music to our ears.
Brazenly, he approached Boyz Noize and Tiga. Within 24 hours he had a contract from Tiga. Turbo Recordings had found its protégé.
The rest is history. He is now a man in demand, flying out from his Russian hometown every weekend to play. Supporters include music royalty such as Erol Alkan, Justice, Soulwax and the Ed Banger crew to name but a few.
His first single ‘Destroy’ became an immediate anthem, his follow-up ‘Decoy’ has\ been dubbed THE post-nu-rave anthem of 2008 and then came the hauntingly beautiful ‘Dance in Dark’. ‘Raven’ has torn up dance floors globally and as the world waits for the release of his debut album on Turbo, The Proxy continues to bring floors across the world to fever pitch.
It’s not often Ambar opens its doors on a Thursday – so join the Russian revolution that IS The Proxy.
