Insom is the Drum&Bass solo project of Gabriel Mentis, born in 1987 and raised in Athens, Greece.
From an early age Gabriel began classical music studies, learning to play the violin and participating in school bands.
As a teenager, he discovered cubase, and started exeprimenting with electronic sounds, while Insom was his graffiti name for years.
After awhile of learning how to lay down beats he upped his style by producing Drum & Bass, mostly Neurofunk. From 2007 till 2010 free tracks and Eps came in netlabels such as 33 Recordings and others. In 2011 he had his first official release with the track "Times of Terror", which came out on Germans Drum & Bass label Trust In Music, on their "Last second chance" EP. Till then he has released music for labels such as Ammunition, Close 2 Death, Mindtech, Future Funk, m-Atome, Melting Pot, Audio Theory ...
Being a member of the Urban Danja crew, he has organised and headlined all over greece, including international guests such as Gridlok, Optiv, Nocturnal, Trei, amongst others.
He has participated and played in festivals and parties such as, 'Athens Legalize Protestival' for the last four years, 'Athens Digital Week' 2010, and 'Music & Culture' festival 2011.
His tracks are receiving major support lately, from "Renegade Hardware Podcasts" to Jade's and Billain's sets, and the future seems exciting !
