This electronic music enthusiast started mixing and experimenting with music in his teens, and has imposed his style in perfect harmony with his public’s expectations ever since. As he journeyed deeper into the art of electronic music, the options for how to perform his music live were constantly multiplying, so, in 2012 he also became a producer and his way of feeling and understanding electronic music changed completely. It would take a long essay to fully explain Zvan’s meaning of electronic music. He has perfected, personalised and refined his technique by playing at numerous gigs. Equally at ease on turntables or any other setup, his groovy and uplifting sets are rumoured to be inspired by the likes of Ricardo Villalobos, Raresh, Petre Inspirescu, Cezar, and are both versatile and daring.
