Elay has dedicated three quarters of his life to music. At the age of six he started playing the guitar. At sixteen he got his music degree, and at eighteen he discovered his inate ability to write electronic music.
At the end of 2008 Elay fell in love with techno, which influenced his psychedelic trance project a great deal. He liked the light, airy sound to the music; thus minimal techno captivated him at once.
In the fall of 2009, the first ideas of the Elay Lazutkin project manifested, and his first tracks were recorded. By the end of October, having already established himself as the techno musician, Elay released his debut, “Freedom” EP, on German label Planet B.E.N. Techno. Of course, Elay’s success was only to be expected. Elay Lazutkin received an offer to release his second “My Cosmo Cat” EP on label, IBZ Records. This release has received support supported by the gurus of techno.

During Winter 2010, the American music label Armada Music, together with with Perfecto Records released new compilation. The track list included the track ‘Let’s Take Noise’, which had been released earlier on the mini album “My Cosmo Cat”. Later in 2010, Ilya released another new mini-album “Ibiza”, rightfully released on IBZ. The release drew attention from absolutely everyone in the industry.
In the first half of 2011, Elay released tracks on few compilations from DJ/Producer UMEK, on well known labels, Toolroom records and 1605 Music Therapy. The tracks “Ibiza” and “1Guy”, remained a constant presence in the Beatport Top 100 Downloads for several months.

The Elay Lazutkin’s tracks are unique, and the secrets of the aforementioned uniqueness are bassline and utterly insane effects.
