BIO FOR: Chooga
Chooga- Dmitry Chugaev- was born in 1980 in a family of cultural workers in the Far North of Russia.
Polar lights, ample quantity of pure white snow, sky with billions of shining stars - everything made great impression and influenced my future life. I was always excited about creative work in all of its aspects. Studying in the music school was the first step in a desire to become a musician. Playing in orchestra developed special understanding of the listener and the stage. Devotion to music was being strengthened and was becoming more outstanding. Among those who influence a lot to my personal vision of music were Pink Floyd, Metallica then later Prodigy, Moby, Goldie and many others. Then I was self-teaching how to play the guitar and drums.
While I was constantly looking for my sphere of action I suddenly realized that I wanted to compose, to create my own music. Studying the programs for composing, searching my own music style (preference was given to drum&bass), studying the basis of how to work with the sound, team-work with different musicians – all these led to the very firm and obvious conception of understanding of my style. There appeared my personal seeing of the music and its emotion which it should evoke.
The style was being formed. As a result some releases appeared in the internet on web sites in Russia and Ukraine: Intelligent Recordings (UA), Sub Level One Recordings (RU), One Size Recordings (RU), Soul Limited Recordings (UA). They were often played on Bassdrive, Ipswich Community Radio and other radio stations over the internet - Stunna,
DJ Fusion. Also some releases have support from Russian and Ukrania DJs and musicians Phisical Illusion, Sequent Industry, DJ Mage and many others.
I am constantly working on new ideas how the music should sound and in the near future I expect to present new releases.
