Music accompanies Vladimir Ershov (PROFF) his whole life. Since a very tender age he was obtaining classical education at musical, variety art and jazz schools as well as extra lessons of piano and saxophone mastership; some time later he discovered a new world of electronic sounds which afterwards entirely captured his mind. Experiments with the basic audio production software, loops and sample libraries, purchase of the first synthesizer, attention and support from fellows on the dance music scene took Vladimir closer to the fulfillment of his dream to become a professional DJ and producer with every next step. 

A life-changing turning point for PROFF's biography was his acquaintance with the Australian producer Jaytech in 2008, who introduced the works of the Russian fellow to the members of Above & Beyond trio. It was the start of a long-term and fruitful collaboration with the British label Anjunadeep, which blazed a trail for Vladimir's music to the international market. Having gained support of top level names of the dance music industry like Above & Beyond, Armin van Buuren, Paul van Dyk, Kyau & Albert, Mat Zo, Super8 & Tab and Michael Cassette, today's PROFF continues to summit new heights of an artist’s creative career. 

PROFF is justly considered as one of modern Russia's most successful producers. Original productions, collective works and numerous remixes by PROFF have been repeatedly ranked in Top 100 Beatport and caught attention of the dance music industry flagships like Armada Music, Solaris, Vandit, Proton, Silk Music, Noys Music and Enhanced. 

At present, Vladimir's discography counts over 100 releases; he devotes himself to daily studio work, gigs across Russia and all over the world.
