Anton Zap was born in Moscow in 1979. He studied Chinese for 7 years and then embarked on a 2 year sound engineering course. He started collecting wax from a very young age and in the mid 90’s he joined Moscow’s underground lounge group, Tetris, led by Vlad Lozinsky.
Zap was resident DJ at one of Moscow’s leading clubs, Propaganda from 1997-2005. He later started his own band, Papaztrio alongside Pavel Hotin and Yuriy Shulgin. He hooked up with Edward Mckeithen aka DJ Jus Ed via myspace and that led to releases on Underground Quality which brought him to the attention of the record buyers, press and record shops alike.
This in turn led to releases on Dubby man’s Deep Explorer imprint as well as noted releases on Quintessentials. More releases are planned on the much loved Millions of Moments label as well as on danish imprint, Kontra Musik and a storming remix for an upcoming benjamin Brunn & workshop’s wunderkind, Even Tuell on Uzuri Recordings. He made his DJ debut outside of Russia @ Berlin’s revered dance institution, Panorama bar on the 17th January 2009.
