DESCRIPTION

At the time of the revolution in Romania, Borrowed Identitys parents
had to leave the country, because of revolutionary activities and an
"anticommunist lifestyle".

So the 21 years old producer behind the mask, was born as a political
refugee in 1990 in the deep south of Germany.

Growing up with multi ethnic friends and big interest in every music
genre of the world, he built his knowledge about music through hearing
every record he could get in his hands from friends, librarys, record
stores and also the internet. This variety in his musical taste is also
the reason why he is working anonym since years under different aliases
producing a big variety of sound from classical symphonys,ambient,
house, techno to experimental music and everything between.

The project Borrowed Identity was found as a new alias of the Romanian
producer in the summer of 2011, with the idea behind to work on a fusion
of classic electronic music from Detroit & Chicago plus his own
influences to make something contemporary but timeless.

The 21 Years old youngster already released his debut vinyl on
Foul&Sunk in June 2012 with a Mark E Remix on board and future Releases
are already planned on Traveller Records (Finland), Other Heights
(Belgium), Stripped&Chewed (Chicago), Home Taping Is Killing Music (UK),
Legendary Sound Research (Netherlands), Bastard Music (Spain) and some
secret surprises are following.
