Vesna formed in the autumn 1998 by Alex Gaponenko and Dimitri Tchernjak. Alex has been creating music since 1992. When Alex met Dimitri, who had been trying his hand as a dj, he realized how common their musical influences were. There was no interest in simply listening to music; the guys wanted to try creating it. They decided to be called VESNA ("spring" in Russian). VESNA is a group working in the most fresh sound tendencies. It can be characterized as cinematic beat and is a rather successful combination of abstract hip-hop, electro and modern IDM melancholy. They have a self-titled release on the Cheburec electronic music label and have kindly let n5MD put together a 7" and CD of their tracks for north-american aural consumption and has come to be one of the artists that is synonymous with n5MD.
