Belarusian musician and producer Def[ez] (aka Andrey Avtushenko) was born in Minsk in 1988. He was carried away by music at school. His music talent came out as he started to learn guitar himself. At the age of 16 he moved to the US. There with his friends he formed a punk hard core band where he was performing as a solo-guitar player. The band had several quite successful shows.
3.5 years after he returned in Belarus and for a long period gave the music up as he needed to study hard to enter the university. After 2 years break he returned to music and mostly was attracted by electronic music. His friend helped Andrey to discover such styles as Dubstep, 2step, UK Garage and show the first steps produce it. Learning himself all the nuances of composing and inspired by Burial, Scuba, Ital Tek, Club Root, Synkro he started to make his own tunes.
