Of Ukranian descent but born & bred in Yorkshire, England. Krysko was brought up on a musical diet of funk, soul, jazz and of course house music. Mainly due to his uncles influence who was a player in the early London house/techno scene. Having been dj’ing for nearly 17 years he’s developed taste in a wide spectrum of musical styles.
In 2000 Krysko became resident at The Redlight, Sankeys soap and over the last 10 years he’s played alongside a huge spectrum of his musical heroes, including – Francois K, Underground Resistance, Masters at Work, Dj Sneak, Jeff Mills, Frankie Knuckles, Todd Terry, Deep Dish, Theo Parrish, Groove Armada, Danny Krivit & Joe Claussell, Dimitri from Paris, Jazzy Jeff, Ame, Dixon and has even managed a rare short back to back set with the Chicago legend Derrick Carter.
Soon after joining Sankeys Soap as resident another one of his ambitions was fulfilled by following on in the footsteps of the original TRIBAL GATHERING residents; Jeff Mills, Carl Cox, Sven Vath, Sasha & Gayle Sann by becoming Tribal Gathering resident for the new generation. Krysko has played both Tribal Gathering weekenders, the last included a LIVE RADIO 1 ESSENTIAL MIX and the huge Warehouse party for 10,000 people, which won many awards as event of the year in 2003 and has closed the RADIO 1 stage at the GLASTONBURY FESTIVAL in 2003 & 2004. Other RADIO 1 appearances have included regular guest slots on THE ESSENTIAL SELECTION with Pete Tong including both live mixes and interviews. Other festivals include – LOVEBOX 2006 at Victoria Park, London playing the main stage.
Krysko has had great props from people such as … Groove Armada’s Tom Findlay “one of the most exciting of the new crop of DJ’s I’ve heard, will be booking Krysko for Lovebox” … and DJ Sneak who said “…he’s bad ass!!”
In September 2004 Sankeys Soap celebrated it’s 10th anniversary by releasing a double compilation CD mixed live by Krysko & Vickers which went on to sell nearly 5000 copies in the first 4 weeks and was awarded 10/10 & mix compilation of the month in DJ Magazine. As well as Sankeys & The Warehouse Project, Krysko has over the last 10 years played and blown apart clubs such as Stompaphunk, The End, Electric Chair, Back II Basics, Custard Factory, The Arches, The Egg, Notting Hill Carnival, café Mambo & Somny in Ibiza and clubs all over the UK.
Since leaving Sankeys Soap in 2006 Krysko became resident at the hugely successful www.thewarehouseproject.com and played alongside artists as diverse as Underground Resistance, Chemical Brothers, Basement Jaxx, Laurent Garnier, Jamie Lidell, Spanky Wilson & The Quantic Soul Orchestra and Hot Chip, with the 2007 run including another LIVE RADIO 1 ESSENTIAL MIX… this is to continue into 2009 with the WHP09. The Warehouse Project has, over the last 4 years, become the UK's most popular and highly respected music event for both world class DJ's and Electronic live acts alike.
Other projects have include – rita and sue – as a duo playing many festivals and backrooms from soul, funk, jazz, nu soul, disco and Balearic-ness… this project has led to a monthly residency at the legendary Back to Basics.
