d-phrag always have been passionate about different styles of music, but definitely not the mainstream, which is on each & every radio station. His love with the electronic music dates back to 2000 when he heard some trance/progressive trance tracks as well as the Astral Projection, who by that time were hip and kinda underground.
Later his musical taste has been heavily influenced by the Northern Exposure, Global Underground series, The Essential Mix on BBC, as well as John Digweed’s Kiss 100 radio show. The DJ’s that shaped his vision for the modern electronic music – John Graham, Nick Warren, Sasha, Digweed, Oakenfold, Dave Seaman – to name a few.
At some point he decided to try some DJ software in order to make a mix with only the tracks he liked and that was the moment he fell in love with the DJ mixing. After a year of rather underground mixing, he was invited to do a guest mix as Artist Of The Week on friskyradio – and that event logically led to his own DJ show on the same radio. The show has been a good start for young and upcoming artists like Lokitas, Silent Brothers, Grigory & Anthony and Denver & Mints from Russia, Audionova from Serbia, Kintar & Rex from Argentina as well as many others (many of them are now residents with their own show on friskyradio).
Recently you can hear d-phrag playing live on some occasional local events and bars.
