Ryskie (RYE-SKI) began producing and mixing in 1999 using very unconventional methods and a unique layout of gear. His style and sound choice has changed many times, but his passion for the music and for the rave culture has stayed the same. After his first official release (Mind Infection - Mekka Warrior Records) skyrocketed to #1 on mp3.com and likewize on the Australian mp3.com.au in 2003, he has continued to have constant international support from DJs and producers alike.
Being best known for his versatility, he has done shows ranging from top40 superclub vibe to underground afterhours warehouse parties. Never being afraid to attempt any genre, it is rare that there is a venue or crowd that does not simply fall under his control as he takes them on a journey of which few have the power to do.
The best advice he can give about keeping up in the vicious and competitive music industry is to "Keep true to yourself, and do it not just for yourself, but for everyone. Because anybody can learn the ropes, and make a big splash, but if you just do it to make yourself feel good, or because you think it's the cool thing to do, you will fade away and fall behind. Only the strong, and true, will survive in this for the long haul."
