Born and raised in Gdynia in 1983, Artur got his interest in techno culture very early and consequently started attending club parties at the tender age of 14. Soon afterwards, he bought his first records and some time later appeared for the first time in front of club audience. In spite of being devoted to techno - from harsh industrial sounds of UK Techno (Surgeon, Ruskin, Slater) via Berlin dub (Chain Reaction), Motown classics (Pullen, Hood, Mills) to modern Berghain-esque sound - he remains inspired by variety of other genres: ranging from modern classical via IDM, industrial and post-rock experiments to house, disco and modern garage/bass music, all of which leave their mark in his dj sets.
Since 2004, Essence has been active as a promoter, running gigs in a few clubs in 3City (most notably, Sfinks) and Warsaw (m25, 1500 m2, Jedyne Wyjście).
He hosted parties with: Surgeon, Regis, Steve Bicknell, Female, Move D, Substance, Sleeparchive, Peverelist, Gerry Read and many more.
