DJ Binghi has started deejaying in 2001 in chillout at worldwide annual “Earth Dance” party in club "Galaktika" (Kyiv).
During next 5 years from jamaican roots dub of 70-s has moved first to electronic psy dub, then ethnic chillout, meanwhile coped with psytrance and psy prog, roots ethnic, go-go music from 60-70s and danceable ska. Has been playing psydub, world grooves & ethnic beats in clubs, openair parties and festivals in Kyiv, Odessa, Kharkiv, Donetsk, Lugansk, Simeiz, Evpatoriya, cape Kazantip.
Finally, in autumn 2005 unconquerable desire to experiment with live ethnic instruments has lead to the foundation of Good Vibez - promo meant for organizing psychedelic trance parties with unique chillout where one could enjoy raw dub vibe and worldbeats accompanied by live percussion, jew's harps and didgeridoo. Next two years of experiments, arising interest to ukrainian roots and especially to drymba (hutsul jew's harp) has lead to something fresh. That is how hustul soundsystem Banda Arkan - a free music formation on the edge of true ethnic tradition and modern club music was born.
"Banda" is an old hutsul word that means "community, brigade, musicians". And "arkan" stands for famous man dance and meanwhile for the idea of music "that once gots you caught will never let you go". And hoorray - in summer 2008 hutsul soundsystem BANDA ARKAN has finally came to Sheshory festival stage and rocked few thousands with mad fusion of pure electronic beats, hutsul and balkan melody, jamaican bass and flaming drive.
Since that dj Binghi and his Banda Arkan has played all over Ukraine from West to the East at festivals, openairs, weddings, club parties, art exhibitions and shared stage with Gogol Bordello, VV, Haydamaky, Perkalaba, Dakhabrakha, Shpongle, Juno Reactor, Scorn, X-Dream.
