Billain (born Adis Kutkut) is a Bosnian drum and bass producer, DJ and sound designer from Sarajevo. He is mostly known for his distinctive style within the neurofunk genre and his collaborations with Frenkie and Edo Maajka.
Billain was influenced as a pre-teen by the Bosnian War. During the four-year lasting Siege of Sarajevo he began to draw and later discovered graffiti and created his first hip hop productions.
In search of new possibilities to express his feelings originating in the siege, at first Billain taught himself autodidactically how to produce techno music and later neurofunk. Before he released his first music, Billain joined the drum and bass collective Kontra which organised many drum and bass events in Sarajevo with Djs like Matrix & Optical, Teebee, Stakka & Skynet and Konflict. His music has been played on BBC Radio 1 and has been featured on UKF Music.
In 2014, Billain, alongside composer Sloven Anzulović, created and composed the sound design and music for the re-opening ceremony of the 1992 destroyed and now rebuilt National and University Library of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
Billain currently releases shortfilms about technological singularity and artificial intelligence.
In 2016, Billian started his side project Aethek. With this project, he drifts towards the genre of Noise music, only focusing on sound design instead of melody and rhythm.Broken Universe EP (2010, Citrus Recordings), with Future SignalKontra EP (2011, Citrus Recordings)#DNA EP (2014, Fmjam Records), with FrenkieColossus EP (2014, Bad Taste Recordings)Binary Volume 3 (2014, Critical Music)Colonize EP (2015, Eatbrain)1991 VG (2017, Renraku) as AethekRhyno / Intrusion (2008, Breed 12 Inches), Rhyno by ReceptorGlome / The Solution (2010, Fatality Recordings), The Solution by High MaintenanceCoded (2011, Close 2 Death Recordings), on Blood Money LP Part 1Phalando / Away we go (2011, Close 2 Death Recordings), Away we go by ParaPranksters / Li (2011, Citrus Recordings), Pranksters by DabsProbes / Horus 8 (2011, Syndrome Audio)Soulmatter (2011, Rise Audio), on Rise Audio EPTotal Darkness / Fiber Twist (2012, Rise Audio)God Ribs (2012, Rise Audio), on RA004 EPBatbots / Manifold (2012, Bad Taste Recordings)Blockfield / Boogie (2013, Bad Taste Recordings)Supertensor / Equilateral (2013, Mindtech Recordings), Equilateral by AlliedWizard (2014, Bad Taste Recordings), with Teddy Killerz on Machine Room Level TwoDevice Nine (2014, Rise Audio), on RA010 EPSafety Hatch (2015, Underslung Audio)Metal Jaws (2016, Bad Taste Recordings), on MethLab, Vol. 2Specialist (2016, Inspected Records), on Glados EPVertebrae (2016, MethLab Recordings), on Monoleth 001 EP as AethekKrakpot (Billain Remix) (2012, Close 2 Death Recordings), original by OptivHalf Life (Billain Remix) (2013, Civil Music), original by Reso, released on Tangram RemixedParadox (Billain Remix) (2014, Vandal Records), original by Opsen & Primal TherapyAmbers Love Was Like A Marble (Billain Remix) (2014, Med School Music), original by Rawtekk, released on Sprouted and ReformedTetsuo's Redemption (Billain Remix) (2014, OWSLA), original by KOAN Sound & AsaMantra (Billain Remix) (2016, Mindtech LTD), original by AKOVRethink (Billain Remix) (2016, Othercide Records), original by Current ValueOdličan CD (2005, Menart Records), album by Frenkie; production of OutroStig'o ćumur (2006, Fmjam Records, Menart Records), album by Edo Maajka; production of Sretno dijete, Za Mirzu, Blažena tišina and Severina/Fm JamŠtrajk mozga (2012, Fmjam Records, Menart Records), album by Edo Maajka; production of Panika, Facebook, Imaš li ti šta para, RaTaTa / Moj Dj and Gube SeProdike (2014, JabbaTon Records), by Fil Tilen and P MoneyIgra riječi (2014, Fmjam Records), album by Kontra; production of VelepodajaReexperience (2015, Fmjam Records, Menart Records), album by Frenkie; production of Film, S.C.A., Izgubljeni snovi, Mali od Ede and Gdje god su mojiAssembly (2014)
