Ilija is originally from Macedonia, the biggest small country in the south-east part of Europe, which most of the artists involved in all kinds of electronic music knows very well. Growing up with the progressive music of the '80's, started dj-ing at the elementary school parties at the age of 13. At the age of 15 already became a professional DJ in Belgrade playing contemporary dance music of the late '80's and early '90's, along with playing a lots of concerts as a drummer in his hardcore/punk high school bands. Beside that, the last decade of the past millenium he spent also working in the radio as a producer and moderator, creating some popular radio shows devoted to the alternative music, trip-hop, acid jazz etc. and carefully following and bringing to the consumers through the air the early development of the finest electronic music, the process which lead him to the discovering of psychedelic and goa trance in the year of 1995.
Than the party started. He organized and played a lots of indoor and open-air parties in Macedonia and most of the East-European countries and he create the very popular radio show "Positive Education" on the biggest national radio Kanal 77, playing psytrance 2h a week to the listeners all over the country.
In the beggining of 2002, Ilija moved to Japan and became a resident DJ and AR for Arcadia Music, one of the biggest japanese psytrance promoters and labels in that time. There he played endless number of events, from small to the biggest clubs as Zepp, Differ and Welfare in Tokyo and every other city in Japan, and a lots of big open-air parties such as Summer Arcade and Nagisa Music festival, alltogether with some of the most respected names in the psytrance scene like GMS, Talamasca, Eskimo, Absolum, Space Tribe, Electric Universe, CPU, Sirius Isness, Nomad, Miko, Exaile, Dark Soho, Skazi, Silicon Sound, Safi Connection, Neuromotor, Sun Project and many many more. There he met John Phantasm and soon after that became member of the Phantasm artists family.
His DJ sets are full-on psychedelic trance full with happy melodies which makes people dance, smile and shout. Playing over 20 years, he builded an unique style of perfect mixing technique which is creating an unique feeling during his sets.
