He is one of those who are called "the face" of the St-Pete's break-beat scene. His recognizable style - fat floating bassline and crazy rhythms- has many fans. Terry Hooligan a.k.a. Atomic Hooligan who had witnessed Golitcin's performance told that it was "f**king good" and Adam Freeland asked a CD for himself… Golitcin's tracks feature the DJ-sets of the Western breaks scene stars and are played on the London radio stations Kiss FM 100, Ministry of Sound, Breaks FM, Nu Skool Breaks'co'uk.
But it's nothing but a top of an iceberg. Golitcin is not only a talented musician but also a successful promoter and DJ.
His musical career started in the beginning of the 1990-s in his hometown of Murmansk where he was performing as a DJ with a local rap band. In 1995 Golitcin moved to Velikiy Novgorod and during the next few years he contributed a lot to the club life of this city having organized numerous indoor parties and big open -airs. But working as a promoter Golitcin never quited his DJ activity. It was during these years when his first DJ performances in St-Petersburg took place, including such big stages as "Vostochny Udar" DJ festival in 1998 and 1999 ( the main arena).
Desire to write music never left him. In 2001 when Dima moved to live in St-Petersburg, he devoted himself purely to creation of his own tracks.
In May 2005 at the "Trip Nation" party in St-Petersburg Dmitry's first live performance took place after which he was proposed to join In Beat We Trust crew. Since that moment participating in many IBWT parties Golitcin gained a reputation of a producer who writes great music and of an artist who knows how to present this music to the listener. Thanks to considerable amount of material accumulated over a few years Dmitry managed to destroy the myth about limitations of live performances making people dance in small clubs as well as at big rave parties.
Over the last years Golitcin has participated in the best breaks club parties and musical events such as Udar.Music, World Of Drum-n-Bass, Sonic Union. And we shouldn't forget about his performances at the world biggest breaks festival "Breaks Arena" and the main arena of "Mayday" where he shared the stage with such famous international DJs as Adam Freeland, Atomic Hooligan, Jay Canning, Rennie Pilgrem, Freestylers, Meat Katie, Hyper, General Midi, Baobinga, Hardy Hard, Boogie Army and others.
By the present moment Golitcin has his several tracks released on CD compilations. And we are proud to announce the release of Golitcin's debut vinyl on StepSine rec. label.
"Step Sine" was founded in 2006 as a result of amalgamation of two labels – Nubreaks.Net and Breaksound. Today it's the only breaks label in Russia which is able to deliver the music created on the territory of the former USSR to the Western listener. The amalgamation allowed to extend the list of artists, the catalogue of releases as well as to increase opportunities of promotion of the label's products on the world's market.
Over a short period of its existence the label has won the reputation of the only source and voice of the Russian breaks which has unique sound appreciated by the professionals of the industry and listeners. Tracks produced by the label can be heard on the biggest radio stations, in sets of famous DJs and are highly rated by the breaks music experts.
At last the integration of the breaks culture of the former USSR countries into the world process of the style development has started. In the nearest future the label is going to take significant steps in promotion of the Russian break beat all over the world.
