UNDAKOVA has been producing and songwriting music since 1994. He began learning to compose and read music in elementary school with Louis Armstrong Memorial Band in Lower Manhattan. In the early 90's he became known as UNDAKOVA to his hip hop crew "UnderRated." at the ages of 14. DJing became second nature after inheriting records from his father who worked as a DJ at the NEW YORKER. His first experiences producing music were after receiving a CASIO Keyboard for Christmas. UNDAKOVA would compose entire soundscapes and various genres and recorded it to tape. The tape still exists to this day and the rest is history.
