Prior to taking up production of electronic music, Lithuanian born producer Julius Laurašonis, aka Under Black Helmet, played several instruments including keys, strings and drums.
After moving to London in 2011 and being inspired by the local scene, Julius has started producing techno and he has remained faithful to the genre ever since. His debut ‘Mute’ EP, released in 2015 on Mørbeck’s Berlin-based label ‘Code is Law’, has received great feedback and has been picked up by techno veterans such as Jeff Mills, Tommy Four Sever and Rebekah. Since then Julius has rightfully established himself in today’s techno scene and plays at monumental parties and clubs such as Reaktor’s Unpolished.
Currently, Under Black Helmet is in the process of releasing two new EPs as well as remixes and VA compilations.
