Vtgnike is Danil Avramov, born in Vladimir, Russia. Started actively making music in 2010 after moving to Moscow. After releasing a couple of EPs under different monikers, got a few Vtgnike D.I.Y. CDs (one of those probably got into Nico’s ears in NY).

Here is what Vtgnike had to say… “I’ve got the beautiful DUBNA LP on Other People (yes, really still think it’s a great record) and a few months after its release got in jail because of drug charges dated in 2009. Long story here. I’m 100% on weed legalization and decriminalization of other drugs in a logically gentle and mentally stable society (and the world is not equal, its diverse and I respect all non-violent cultures. Got free in 2016 (THANKS TO EVERYONE INVOLVED AND NICO) and got another album with the Gost Zvuk fam. I am a proud resident of NII club. 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.”
