About methodik

Methodik, inspired by the dj-ing traditions of his family roots, started to make hip-hop mix tapes on cassette players at the age of 12 in 1995 when the hip-hop culture and drum&bass slowly started to penetrate Estonia.

In the beginning of year 2000, Methodik decided to concentrate his audience manipulation talent on the unbounded terrains of drum&bass, effortlessly blending old-school rarities, jazzy and vocal drum&bass with the latest aggressive production and unreleased material.

By now, Methodik has played in and promoted hundreds of parties in various countries and venues starting from lounges and small underground clubs to huge raves alongside with Technical Itch, Teebee, Future Prophecies, Bailey, Concord Dawn, Danny C and Ill Skillz among others, including all Estonian and most of Latvian and Russian drum&bass dj-s.

In year 2001 he established Estonia’s leading DJ equipment store - DJstore.ee - and has been the manager since then. Hence the entrepreneurship triggers the continuous improvements even in excellence, the same can be witnessed on his dj and scratching skills.
