1) Dissident is the production name of Russian based Stanislav Sevostyanikhin. Residing in St.Petersburg at the Baltic sea shore, he spends most of his time slicing beats, sampling street sounds and creating trends in modern music culture. He is influenced by very different kinds of music that allowed him to produce such diverse and truly innovative tunes.

Dissident lists 4hero, Photek, Alaska, Matrix, Portishead, DJ Krush, DJ Vadim, Future Sound of London, Massive Attack, Kraftwerk, Prodigy, Squarepusher, Aphex Twin, Miles Davis, Jan Garbarek, Gary Peacock on top of his inspirations list.

Stas started to produce electronic music in early 1996. He was influenced by techno & breakbeat in general. Shortly after he turned to dark-side and created his first drum’n’bass project called T.Step Collective (featuring Aspekt, Nec and MC Akim) who in 1998 renamed themselves to Dissonance. They had enough success in Russia, with many releases and performances.

After gaining some experience in the industry, he quit the project and went on to produce solo in 2001. Dissident collaborated with different artists, such as Sta & Paul B, Ruffen, Bes, Uzhas and many others. The sound that he had polished was ready to be taken onto the world scene and his first release “Technecium” (made with Paul B) abroad was on the famous British label Renegade Hardware in 2002. Dissident then signed up to a new American imprint called Fear Red with his innovative tune “Fuji” / “Last DNA Donor”.
