Слушаем микс в честь 10летия 2DEEP

Hailing from the Russian powerhouse of d&b, a beautiful city of Saint-Petersburg, Alexander Shevchenko aka Lotus is a man with refined taste to music he plays and listens to. Lotus has never lost his enthusiasm and passion to vinyl aesthetics religiously and avidly buying records from all over the world. Just take a look at and flick through his huge and versatile collection including 2000 liquid funk, soulful, intelligent and atmospheric drum & bass and jungle records from early 90s till the most latest cuts. Supporting almost since it's inception one of the oldest series of liquid and deep d&b parties in Saint-P - "2DEEP", recently Lotus has become a resident there spreading this vision of the music he wholeheartedly loves. 

Lotus doesn't care about when a tune was released and how big the artist's name is: if the track is awesome, it must be spinned. Thus, you can expect cocktail-type sets full of not only finest hot hits, but with some wicked inexcusably forgotten brilliants from the past including well-known golden classics.

Being fascinated by hip-hop vibes in his youth, Lotus accidentally got acquainted with drum & bass only in 2003. An introduction included sounds of Kosheen, High Contrast, London Elektricity, mighty LTJ Bukem's "Progression Sessions" series of mixes etc. Discovering new and new horizons in drum & bass, he was trying to embrace majority of sub-genres to form his own vision. First record was bought in 2006; having started collecting music in vinyl format, some time later Alexander received a very good feedback on his tastes from music-related friends.

Appearing on a couple of parties in the middle of 2008 (including "2DEEP" series and one-and-only legendary pure atmospheric open-air "Summertea"), Lotus had been forced to leave Saint-Petersburg for a long time. Being cut off from his carefully selected vinyl collection, Alexander, though, continued to order records to Russia, to boil online in the intriguing world of drum & bass, and he had got a serious feeling to share the music with people on return. Coming back, he started to spend much more time on learning the art of mixing.

In 2010-2011, since a  very beginning, Lotus was one of the editors and main writers of DNBINFO.RU.
