Pavel Loginov (aka DJ Korean) is one of Russias movers and shakers, and is firmly entrenched in the Moscow club scene. He is a club promoter, a producer and remixer, and a damn fine DJ!
His DJing career began back in 1994, playing British Progressive House in the «Skazka» club. He soon moved to the «Ostrov» club in Moscow where he introduced clubbers to a mixture of House and Progressive music.
In early 1997 he began to work at the all dance Radio «Station 106.8 FM», Moscows answer to Kiss FM, where he produced and hosted the morning show. In 1998 he organised the wildly successful «Discohouse» parties in Moscow with his good friend DJ Duck. Later that year he left Station and started promoting the «Apache» night at the world-renowned Titanic club.
It was there that he got to know DJ Fonar, one of Russias biggest DJs. The two clicked instantly and discovered a shared passion for dance music and football. So much so that they decided to set up a semi-professional footbal team called «DJ Club» made up only of like-minded DJs and producers. They still both play now when time allows!
In the summer of 1998 Pavel took on the first of many successful Moscow residencies, at the Tsex club, while continuing to promote and organise a series of one-off «Discohouse» parties, which took place at the huge Champion sports centre.
He is currently resident DJ at some of the best clubs in Moscow, including Most, Circus, the Buddha Bar and Alibi, and is a founder member of the Atmosphere collective, a coalition of Russian DJs and party promoters.
But its not just Moscow — since 1997 Korean has DJed all over Russia, playing in Odessa, Samara, and as far away as Novosibirsk and Krasnoyarsk in Siberia, as well as abroad, in Europe and Dubai. He has appeared at some of the largest parties in Russia, including the 50,000 strong «Vostochny Udar» («Eastern Blow») parties in St Petersburg, the biggest raves in Eastern Europe. He has also played many gigs in London including Going Places, Medicine and Loosen Up.
Got residence at Covent garden in London at club Retox from 2001-2006. He played all over the world: Touring in Brazil at 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, in USA WMC 2009, 2010, 2011, at Las Vegas on Perfecto parties by Paul Oakenfold in club Rain, Los Angeles club Avalon, NYC club Sullivan Room, Avion, Miami club Liv, Washington D.C., Philadelphia, Ibiza Ushuaia, Monaco, France, Japan, Thailand, Norway, Denmark, Latvia, Estonia, Spain and ect... Also he played on a biggest rave "Instation" over 70000 people was at Gorkyi parkin Moscow at 1997 Pavel also somehow finds time to go to the studio and is currently working on an album with his partner Mutabor. Their first single «Paris Dakar» was released on Oven Ready/Invent. Aside from this, he has been busy remixing a number of Russian artists as well as turning his hand to mixing compilation CDs.
A pioneer of the progressive house sound, but equally able to play funky vocal-led house if the situation demands, Pavel Loginov is definitely one of the best DJs of the Eastern European new breed.
