Born and raised in Sinaia, a small famous Romanian mountain town, believes that the next quote is very representative for him as well as for every music lover „Without music, life would be a mistake” (Friedrich Nietzsche)

The very first time I felt true fervor for music was in 1996 when I started to collect and listen as much music as I could. I found out later that it was that moment when I have chosen this way, when I have decided to devote my life to the music. So the very next move was to start playing music as a DJ, step by step, in several clubs.

In 1997, I began to collaborate with Radio 21and another level came to light with a brand new perspective on my life. As a fresh member of the Radio 21 team, at first I was a DJ and then a local station manager. Next, I strengthened my professional background working with Radio Brasov, Mix FM and Radio 21 Bucharest.

My first approach with quality house music was when I played as a resident DJ in OFFICE Club Predeal & Bucharest, a pioneer in Romanian clubbing industry. During my residency in OFFICE Club I had the chance to experience the true vibes of house music for which I developed a great taste and passion. It was there I got to be known as “DJ SMILEY” because everybody was absolutely astonished by me being so serious while mixing and so they couldn’t help calling me “smiley”.

In 2005, I breathed the air of morning parties in a legendary after-hours club called SUGAR where I had the opportunity to play beside most of the top Romanian DJ's and since then I became addicted to after-hours parties.

After that, I had several residencies to other after-hours clubs like Posh, Gossip, Metropolis, Barocco and Shade Club. Between spinning the records there, I had gigs in all major cities from the mountains to the sea, and everywhere there are appropriate conditions for a good performance.

Meanwhile, I am the fashion show music producer and after parties DJ for Fashion TV Romania.

In my sessions I like to include and explore top quality house music in order to gather the people on the dance floor and make them feel united. My mixing approaches are a combination between passion, human empathy and fine taste and gather all techno, tech-house, minimal-techno, minimal-house, deep-house and old-school beats.

After two long years of absence from the underground music scene, at the same time with the beginning of 2011, I am ready to come up with new music projects like a radio show, a new residency, promoting parties and events and the last but not least I am thinking about touching seriously the side of producing and try my luck to a record label.

Not willing to bore you with more details, I will let you discover the new me under the alias: "MENTAL XPERIENCE" and looking hopefully to keep following my vibes because the future has never been so close!
