From a singer/guitarist father and a singer mother part of a band in the 80’s, Zakov was already surrounded by music while he was still in his mother’s womb. When he was 16 everyday after school, in his father’s best friend music shop, he was checking news black vinyl releases and started to play B2B in the shop for fun alongside William Ellington. William is maybe the man who made everything happen because of his time, his patience, his huge love for the music, his great musical culture and all the skills that he transmitted to Zakov who was just discovering his future love for electronic underground music. William also spent many hours teaching to Zakov how to play serious music on MKII..
