|Born in September 1988 in the small town of Slobozia, Romania, Victor Mihailescu grew a great interest for music even from his childhood. It all started with old cassettes with Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Enigma from his parents, later on Music Instructor, Chemical Brothers, Moby, Chicane etc. Listening to a wide musical palette, he developed an extensive taste for various genres, from ambient to rock, house, trance and techno.
Over the years he tried many art forms: modern dances, (digital) painting, writing, movie making, in the end he discovered music is the most rewarding and fun one. After playing around with pc mixing software and theorethically learning how to mix on hardware, Victor kicked off by mixing live in front of a local pub’s owner, and the next day he was pushed straight to the head of a line up warm up the decks for, e.g. the well known Romanian DJ Vania.
Starting from that night he had the pub’s residency for one year. He also had a weekly trance show at Radio DJ, another one at Radio Net, was invited to Fresh FM, Radio Lynx , warm up for the famous Romanian group Suie Paparude and mixed at parties.
He started producing right after dj-ing, steadily but surely improving his sound and experimenting with various genres. Victor gets bored very easily, that’s why his sets are always changing and dynamic, and his productions are hard to categorize. He currently has two aliases: Victor M for techno, and Alternati-v- for electronica/ downtempo/ chillout productions.
