Alexey’s first DJ sets are held back in 1997, in small clubs. Moving quickly to the largest at the time Russian electronic music festivals, such as “DJ’s Parade”, “Dance Planet” and “Kazantip”.

At that time Alexey firstly became a resident, and later, an art director of the first private club “Absinth” (Saint-Petersburg). The unique “Only for chosen circle” format of this place with carefully picked musical format and regular original exclusive parties elevate Romeo to the top of the list of  Russian DJs.
