Meandisco

Bio

“Meandisco” Gene, was born on the banks of Neva in St. Petersburg, Russia. His musical journey is rooted in early childhood fascination with disco and vinyl records. His inspirations, ideas and style stem from artists such as Jean Michel Jarre, SPACE, Pink Floyd, Kraftwerk, Giorgio Moroder, and Cerrone, along with a broad range of Blues, Jazz, Classical musicians and elements from multiple electronic genres.

In mid 90’s, through a premature exposure to the New York underground music scene, (at age 14), he got an early schooling from a broad variety of artists ranging from Frankie Bones to Timmy Regisford. He also acquired deep insight into the music industry while working at K7! Records and Global Underground. By the age of 18 he assisted public relations for world’s renowned artists; house legends Kerri Chandler, progressive titans John Digweed, Sasha, Nick Warren, Satoshi Tomiie, Steve Lawler, Deep Dish, Darren Emerson, Danny Howells, Sander Kleinenberg, Lee Burridge, techno superstars Sven Väth, Steve Bug, trance giants Tiësto, Paul Van Dyk, ATB, and visionaries like James Lavelle, along with many other talent…

In early 2000, after closure of Club Twilo, he worked at New York City’s renowned Club Vinyl, (later ARC). He continued to work with a friend and mentor, infamous DJ/producer Danny Tenaglia and it was actually Danny who christened Gene as MEANDISCO. But Tenaglia wasn’t the only mentor and inspiration, weekly Body & Soul parties, held at club Vinyl, led by legends François K, Danny Krivit, and Joaquin “Joe” Claussell made a dramatic impact on his future musical direction. After moving on to manage Club Love and follow his musical hero Clausell, he remained deeply rooted in the underground scene of NYC.
