Biography

Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina (1997 – present)

Living through the unimaginable reality of the darkness brought through war in his home city of Sarajevo, alongside being heavily influenced as a child by Stanley Kubrick, David Cronenberg, John Carpenter, Katsuhiro Otomo and the music from numerous Anime dark movies, Billain started to visualise dark places which he combined with a deep interest in science, soon he started to sketch and paint his ideas. After some time this form of expression was not enough and between 1997-98 Billain turned towards music production to further express the complex ideas and visions forming inside his head. Billain schooled himself in the techniques and theories of music production which naturally led him to techno music, with influence coming from a variety of sources including Iannis Xenakis, Stockhausen, Aphex Twin, The Prodigy and also some early Metalheadz releases. After producing around 300 minimal techno tracks alongside playing live DJ sets Billain wanted more… Techno was just too simple. New influence came through Ed Rush & Optical’s legendary “Wormhole’ LP, and this was the turning point into a world of techno influenced drum and bass… Billains direction had changed forever…

In the year 2000 Billain became part of the legendary Sarajevo drum and bass collective known as ‘Kontra’. The collective brought some of the finest artists in drum and bass to the country for the first time, including legends Matrix & Optical, Optiv, Teebee,Stakka and Skynet, Kemal, Black Sun Empire, Corrupt Souls, and many more. Shortly afterwards, Billain started producing drum and bass for the first time, purely for personal enjoyment and development.
