SR / Sneaky Russian also known as Mr_M.
Real name: Anton.
Anton was born 1987 in Svetogorsk, Russia. He started listening to music, in his years of secondary school, which influenced him to become what he is today. He can recall Scooter and he can’t forget the Hard House mix tapes of Dj Cvetkoff. “I remember the day when my friend had a cassette walkman and he gave me a listen. There was The Prodigy tape inside. I never heard anything like it. I just had to borrow it from him, for like a week, I must have played it over and over about a thousand times!”
In year 2000, Anton was fortunate enough to come to England. During his last years at school, he started to get into Dance and Trance music, by buying random CD’s at the music store, which looked interesting. Next time at the music store, he was searching for the names of Dj’s and Producers, which sounds he liked the most. His CD collection was growing, so was his love for the music.
After finishing school, college and becoming old enough to go to clubs, Anton was introduced by a friend to an underground Hard Dance night in one of the clubs. He never wanted to go to a commercial club again. “After being to a night like that and seeing what a real Dj is all about, I didn’t want anything else. The energy. The people. The atmosphere and the music. Wow, what an experience!”
After going to many different Hard Dance nights for couple of years, Anton started showing a keen interest in Dj’ing.“I always was fascinated with the power Dj had over people. How does one person have so much control over all of these people’s emotions, feeling’s and their mood? It’s God like!”
With a keen interest in Dj’ing, Anton was also looking into music production as a hobby in his spare time. This is how SR aka Sneaky Russian was born. For nearly a year by pure interest and experimenting, Anton was getting to know the software, now over the years he has developed his own style of producing sounds and tracks, which are different and fresh. "All what I make in the studio is coming straight from my heart and my soul. I put a lot of my energy and spare time(when I have it) into my tracks, remixes and experiments. I don't tend to stick to one genre and love to try different things."
Anton has got his first vinyl decks as a present from his friend for his birthday in 2009. “As I remember; I only had 4 records at that time and I used to stand there for hours trying to get it right.” Anton has played his first set on vinyl later that year and in 2010 has played at countless events in his local city. In 2010 he holds the residency for Smiley Culture. In 2011 residency for Eargasm and plays for iCandyDJ's. In 2012 and 2013 he had sets on Future Radio, East Point Beatz internet radio station, but mainly involved with House and Down Tempo productions under Mr_M alias with residency for a House music event Whomp in Norwich.
As Sneaky Russian and Mr_M he is seeking a label that would suit his exclusive tracks. Open for remixes and collaborations too.
