Anton Linnik began taking an interest in music aged just 7 years old and in 2006 began writing electronic music. What started as a hobby soon found a very important place in his life thanks in part to support from his good friend and musical collaborator Seva Unquote.
The first exposure of Mr Sizef’s music came from a well known Rusian radio DJ named Gvozd and from Stunna of the USA but more prominent artists and labels soon took note. ‘Hours Have No Reverse Motion’ with Unquote appeared on dBridge & Instra:mental’s Autonomic Podcast and became an integral part of “The Future Sound Of Russia” compilation on Hospital Records. Releases on Alphacut, Warm Communications and other forward-thinking imprints followed.
In 2010, Mr Sizef released the poetically titled “Chocolate Evening, The Crimson Sea, Sweet Feeling, Only U” on Absys Records. In 2011, this was followed up by “Your Gentle Smile Is A Cradle Of My World Now And Forever” on Respect Records. He also featured on the “Meditation In Dance” EP on Respect alongside Enei, Eastcolors, Bulb and more, with his track “Skies Kindness Happiness”
Anton explains, “I try to tell certain romantic stories which develop and die away as the track develops, every note is a continuation of my thoughts and feelings!” This is music full of new ideas that does not adhere to the rules!
