Biography

Born in Slovakia in 1978, Rasti Tkac begin learning classical piano and music theory at age 5. After 1989, when his country opened its borders to the cultural variety of the world, he discovered a passion for electronic music. From the sound of Depeche Mode to the darker paths of E.B.M, Rasti found his way to club music, with its fusion of groovy rhythms and emotional atmospheres and vocals.

After high school, Rasti was desperate to express his own thoughts through the language of music. However, with a weak technical background, he could do little more than listen to other productions. Then, in 1998, a chance encounter led Rasti to cross paths with Tomas Haverlik, who led him down the path of computer-based production. Their experiments were the foundation for what would become the duo Tkac & Haverlik.

2001 was the breakthrough year for Tomas & Rasti, with the release of Tomas’ Hannah with Rasti’s remix on the B side. Their next productions — Tyra, Synthia, and Noel — were released by legendary progressive-house label Baroque Records, earning Tomas and Rasti the respect of the scene. A slew of remix work soon followed.

Rasti is currently taking a break from the Tkac & Haverlik partnership to pursue solo projects while also playing DJ gigs throughout Europe.
