DJ FLASH was born and raised in Krasnoyarsk, Russia. As a child, he was a good student, but he did not display any musical abilities or desire to learn about music. Flash rarely participated in scholastic musical activities, and he did not DJ at school. His passion for music began at age 13, when he discovered bands such as Masterboy, DJ Bobo, Mr. President, Scatman John, and others. Sergey started to collect dance records as his interest grew, and he finally discovered the art of DJ'ing. In 9th grade, he gained access to proper DJ equipment and learned how to spin on CD players.
