Boris was first influenced by New Wave music, including Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Tears for Fears, Eurhythmics, and Culture Club. It was this blend of lyrics, lush layers of synth, and rapid beats that brought Boris to his true passion – Djing.
His first foray into the field was a casual attempt at mixing at a friend’s party, soon followed by the inevitable purchase of records and many hours spent learning the art of mixing with the help of a friend. ,Boris landed his first real show at DCs infamous 5th Column in 1996. Boris was quickly embraced by the district’s club scene as a talented house DJ and was soon playing regularly, both in DC and abroad. After playing raves in Bolivia for several months, Boris was quickly recruited by DC house mecca Five to be their resident DJ. Gigs soon followed at DC’s hottest clubs, including GLOW, Eye Bar, Dragonfly, Mate, Penthouse, FUR, Josephine, Lima, Spank, Current, Donovan House, Dirty Bar and many more.
