Ilnaz Tarkhanov, also known under the alias Cramp, is the one of the most sought-after and talented musicians in Eastern Europe – with a global reputation and following. By choosing progressive house and progressive trance as the main musical directions, many Cramp tracks became classics of the Russian and European trance scene. Debuting with "Deadline" in 2008, and in 2011 Cramp has caused an almighty buzz with his track – ‘RU116’. Debuted by Above & Beyond at ASOT 500 at Den Bosch, speculation about who was behind the mysterious, then unknown, ‘RU116’ flooded the message boards as fans were swept up by its infectious, powerful groove and spine-tingling melodies. In 3 days 'RU116' has been massivly supported by the all top DJs and in one week after the release it was reached the 3rd position on Beatport Top 10 Trance Chart.
As part of our 20 Years celebrations, Cramp was asked to update ‘RU116’ for modern club systems. Fans heard this 2020 update in Above & Beyond’s Group Therapy 400 celebrations, recorded on the River Thames, London September 2020.
