Hristo Georgiev aka Underspawn, 24 years old music producer from Yambol, Bulgaria. I've loved music for as long as I can remember. My first encounter with drum & bass was when I heard Aphrodite's "Bomber Style" on MTV, but I didn't have a computer back then and digging for obscure tunes was next to impossible, so I ended up listening mostly to hip-hop for a good while. Few years later after almost having forgotten about the existence of dnb I randomly heard Amon Tobin's "Nightlife" at a friend's place and ever since I've been exploring the depths of electronic and experimental music in all her forms. However, it wasn't until after I heard "Poison Apple" by Need For Mirrors that I started to get into producing. The tune felt so simple and monotonous but in the same time incredibly effective - the constantly evolving atmosphere and strong backbone of it just had me in their clutch and every time I listened to it I felt like I was on a journey to a strange and beautiful place! Ever since then it has been my goal to try and create music with similar effect - one that just grabs you and doesn't let go until you reach the end destination.
