While growing up in Daugavpils, the second biggest city in Latvia, VZ was constantly getting inspired by electronic music. Spending a year in Northern Norway, She has started DJing from time to time in a bar in Tromsø - a capital of electronic music in Norway. Getting supported by local DJs and friends, VZ made some small student parties with her friend who shared her love for house and techno. After coming back to Riga, VZ didn't want to stop playing. Luckily she got noticed by Riga's DJs and she could make Riga crowd discover her music world. She is the cofounder of the baltic techno organisation Melnā Saule. In her sets, VZ tries to combine different sounds of techno - from dub to acid, from dark to industrial.
