Born 1981, Andrey PUSHKAREV is a Russian artist from Votkinsk (Pre-Ural region) who was born for DJing (he started when he was 15 years old). At the beginning of the second millenium, Andrey moved to Moscow. While performing at night, he worked during the day for the the Russian branch of the German music distribution company TraumBaum. This is how Andrey assembled and increased his vinyl collection which is today estimated to be about 5,000 records. In 2006 Andrey became a resident for the unique music web radio DeepMix.ru. By the end of summer 2011 the radio had broadcasted non commercial techno music to 6,000 monthly listeners from 53 countries for free and without any advertising. At the same time, Pushkarev’s reputation on several radio stations grew thanks to his many deep, melodic and uncompromising Techno mixes. From 2007 he starts DJing outside Russia.
Over the past two years, the polar bear of Russia has been very active. He released two EPs on French music label Circus Company as well as a track on Endless. His productions combine deepness and sensitive melodic Techno. They also show an attraction for stripped-down dancefloor music. However, Andrey remains, above everything, an artist known for his refined DJ-Sets. His passion for music is indefinable. He recorded roughly 300 podcasts and played in many radio shows across the world. Moreover, the movie Kvadrat is a good example of his dedication for electronic music and vinyl. It’s a feature-length documentary that explores the realities of techno DJing while using Andrey Pushkarev as a model.
Andrey deserves the nickname of ‘Russian mastermind’. His untypical background is what makes him so special and is something we value at LumièresLaNuit.
Andrey has already played all over Europe, Russia, the USA and South America, performing in clubs such as Arma17 (Moscow), Propaganda (Moscow), Rodnya (Moscow) but also outside of the Russian frontiers, at Supermarket (Zürich), Frieda's Büxe (Zürich), A38 (Budapest), Kristal Club (Bucharest), Studio Martin (Bucharest) or even Club Midi (Cluj-Napoca). He also span records in festivals like Kazantip (UKR/GE) or B My Lake (HU).
