What’s your earliest ‘musical’ memory?
Many years ago it was my grandmother's old radio on which I heard the concerts of Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. And as my uncle, Babin, recorded on it, we started listening to The Beatles. And between all these were still the old Soviet movies with amazing music and songs.
What was it that drove you to get into the music industry?
Actually, I had long dreamed of becoming a radio presenter, and in 1999 my dream came true. The platform for the start of my career was the radio station "Radio Rocks Ukraine". It was really a cool radio station; rebellious and daring. Perhaps it was the first step to starting my professional career in the music industry.
Who have been the most influential people in your musical development?
There, on the radio, I met a whole new world of alternative and rock musicians. I remember when I first heard the album “Dead Can Dance», and it is forever plunged me into the world of deep music. I'm still very much influenced by Deep Forest, it is perfect music.
Who inspires you outside of music?
My family, the philosopher Michel de Montaigne, and aged wine.
What are the biggest three challenges facing you at this moment in time?
More love, more travel, more dreams.
If you could collaborate with ANYONE in the world (past or present) who would it be and why?

If you weren’t in the music game, what game would you be playing?

Who gives you the most support in your life and work?
