You can hear it in his music: The countless nights of dance floor devastation, the appreciation for the heritage of dance music, the aggressive desire to innovate and do something new. Listen to Foul Beats, one of Boris's first tracks for revered techno label SCI+TEC, and it's all right there.
There are overnight sensations, and then there's Boris. Baptized in the booths of New York City, the Russian native learned the craft of DJ-ing in front of the most demanding crowds in the world, developing a deep sense of what moves a packed floor in a moment, an hour, or a full night-to-morning extended session.
From TKYEAR to today, he’s been a resident at every major New York nightclub (including Pacha, Crobar, and Roxy), and received award nominations for his service (Club World Awards, America's Best DJ), not to mention the adoration of dedicated fans: His Belive brand is based on their faith in him. He’s also released several compilations on local label Nervous; timeless capsules of the sounds of the city.
