DJ Kirill Sergeew

DJ Kirill Sergeew was born in 1985, St. Petersburg, Russia. In his childhood his parents sent him to take classical piano classes, but while growing up he became more and more interested in other kinds of music and taught himself to play the guitar. After playing in bands influenced by Sonic Youth, Jesus and Mary Chain he started to write music using electronic instruments.

Summer 2006 he started to release this material, the first EP was out on July 23rd on the Japanese netlabel Bump Foot. Then he released one more EP and a single on this label, and two mixes called "Modern Classiques" Vol. 1 & 2 at Sonic Walker (Holland) and Mixotic. Kirill plays lovely material, including artists from his home country, classical and nu jazz, house, hiphop, triphop, much downtempo, 70th rock, pop and much more.
