Ukraine born Serj Kravchenko or aka Sj Ocean began his musical journey on local hip-hop venues as a beatmaker and MC.
The Prodigy’s “The Fat Of The Land” cassette tape happened to be his first electronic music experience around 1997 at school where everyone talked about techno music being the cool new thing.
In his own words, “it sounded like total destruction’ and he was blown away. He managed to setup a basic home studio and started experimenting. Refusing to be stuck within one genre, SJ has spent a lot of time writing and performing heavy metal influenced music in bands “Pictures Inside Me”, “Oceans Red” and “Make Me Famous’, touring around USA and hitting Billboard Charts.
With many of these experimenting with electronic music ideas. Sj then realized he needs to concentrate more on EDM itself and write full original tracks. His talent was soon spotted by Noz Recordings, who immediately snapped him up at the middle of 2014 as an exclusive label signing for his debut single “Get High”.
Sj Ocean’s “Get High” is an incredible hybrid song of drum and bass, electro, and dubstep. Taking the listener on a euphoric ride of melodies, grooves and more amazing sounds.
Now SJ is the resident of Criminal Tribe Records and has his debut EP “Broken By Nature” released. His music resonates with an exciting energy and it’s ready to conquer your hearts and smash your ears!
