The Russian born, New York resident Serge Devant is turning heads. Jamie Jones, Lee Foss, Damian Lazarus and Hot Since 82 have already acknowledged that there’s a new and extremely impressive producer on the scene, and with releases on their labels it’s easy to see why. Serge is a producer rapidly making a mark.
Growing up in Russia, Serge was first exposed to electronic music at an early age, influenced by the seminal sounds of Jean Michel Jarre, Depeche Mode, and many others. Equipped with a classical music education, the teenage Devant moved to New York City in the 90s with his family, and instantly fell in love with his new home.
Developing an insatiable taste for music and 24 hour nightlife, he frequented local haunts like the legendary Sound Factory, Twilo, and Tunnel when he was just 16, before trawling through the city’s record stores in search of the music he was hearing in the clubs. Taking to the decks, he soon garnered the attention of several local promoters and the young Serge landed his first gig at Tunnel soon after.
After a stint as an artist on Ultra Records, a serious back injury from a snowboarding accident left him recovering for a whole year. Serge took time to reflect and reform his musical style.
