On the remote pacific coast of Russia sits Vladivostok, the birthplace of Andrey Terekhov, a young Russian electronic music producer now better known as EastColors. Taking his musical influences from hard rock in his teens, EastColors, like many others, got introduced to drum & bass by mutual friends and fell in love with the sound. Ed Rush & Optical and Bad Company were his biggest inspirations by that time but it wasn’t until 2006 when he started to play around with music production with his friends.
Fast forward four years and his first musical production was released by Austrian label Mainframe in 2010. Everything else snowballed from there. Mu- sical collaborations with fellow Russians Enei and Noel like “Cracker”, “Home” and “Labyrinth” were snapped up by some of the leading underground labels like Critical Recordings and Revolution Recordings. “Acidized” was one of his first solo works released on highly regarded Samurai Music but it was De- mand Records who gave birth to EastColors’ first solo single “Things Inside” and “Heavy Tone”. Other highlights being the “Dreamer EP” on Phunkfiction, “Watch Out” on the Other Side compilation of Break’s Symmetry Records as well as a collaboration called “2012” with Enei for his album “Machines”.
2013 started with a boom as EastColors’ “Murderer”, released on RAM’s sister label Program, caused a huge stir all across the scene. With releases like “Rock Fella”, “Crispy”, “The Light” or his EP on Avantgarde Recordings,
EastColors proved once again to have a unique writing and production style. His sound, same as his djing appearances, can be light and beautiful as well as heavy and dark. In the transition to 2014 Andy C included Andrey’s track “Toys”, his latest single, on the well-known Nightlife series and by the time the single was out it jumped directly on the #1 spot on the Beatport D&B Charts.
Moving from Vladivostok to St. Petersburg, EastColors signaled once again his dedication to even work harder on his musical career. Concentrating fully on his first solo album on Demand Records in the upcoming year, the fu- ture of this young Russian talent is looking very bright.
