Receptor Moscow All Enquiries: email@example.com From the moment Mitya Veshchunov first began pouring over his brother’s jungle record collection, the man who’d soon become Receptor was hooked on the genre. First it was Aphrodite, then it was Pendulum’s ‘Another Planet’ which would later shape his path into the genre; soon followed by his discovery of the more tech-influenced tracks of Noisia and Konflict. He immersed himself within this subsection, leading him then onto the expansive catalogue of Lifted Music, one of the most notable contemporary labels which flourished during this period. Lifted Music presented itself as a different flavour with no boundaries and it became a mecca for Receptor’s own musical tastes as they were evolving – later reflected through his own work. At the age of ten, Receptor was gifted a Yamaha PSR-740 synthesiser by his father, due to his son’s growing interest in music. Despite never being educated musically, he learned musical notation through a friend and over the course of six months his skills exploded, with him laying his hands on a plethora of DAWs through the internet. From EJay to FL Studio, his production knowledge increased at an astounding rate – something which would soon be more widely recognised after his move to Moscow, a central hub for drum & bass both in Russia and on the global stage. Receptor has always endeavoured to inject his music with the Slavik roots that have been a primary inspiration for him. Emulating the sonics featured on ‘Pirate Station’ stages and across the ‘Therapy Sessions’ compilations, his amalgamation of styles enabled him to build an extensive audience. From ‘Rhyno’ on Lifted Music’s sister-label Breed 12 Inches, through to ‘Kurchatov’ in 2009 on Obsessions (the first label from Black Sun Empire) and his ‘Girls’ EP on John B’s Beta Recordings, Receptor’s discography was proving to be as formidable as his fan base. He was later called on to perform remix duties for Black Sun Empire’s ‘Dawn of a Dark Day’ ft. Foreign Beggars and Noisia’s ‘Alpha Centauri’, highlighting a definitive part of his career, with the producers being a central part of his founding interest in drum & bass. In the space of a decade, Receptor had catapulted himself from the role of fan, to standing amongst his idols as their counterpart. After a long hiatus, Receptor now returns and is planning to push his name into the direction he’d always planned. This will represent a more experimental approach to sound design, something which will develop through his release’s forthcoming on Evolution Chamber, an imprint he’s leading alongside Task Horizon and Magnetude. With tour dates set to be announced throughout 2020, Receptor is delivering the same energy which has been seen previously during his sets at Pirate Station, Ultra Music Russia and the 10-year anniversary of World of Drum & Bass. Receptor is offering some of his biggest selections to date, which many listeners have been waiting for patiently; the music he brings along with him makes this wait worthwhile.
