Vtgnike, real name Danil Avramov, a Russian artist, is resident of Moscow's NII club. He started actively making music in 2010, and, after releasing a couple of EPs under different monikers, began working as Vtgnike. He released the Dubna LP other Other People in 2014, and then ended up in jail, we're told, for drug-related charges, and has since got back into music production.
"In producing I've been switching music genres all my life. Electronic music has that flow in it, doesn’t need to be glued to any specific range of bpm, etc," he says.
Nicolas Jaar launched Other People in 2013, and has appeared on the label several times. Other releases have come from Patrick Higgins, Dave Harrington, A Pleasure, Valentin Stip, among others.
