Olé Koretsky is a New York City based musician, DJ, producer, and member of alternative music group D.A.R.K.
Koretsky was born in the Soviet Union and raised by his mother in Brooklyn, NY. While attending E.B. Shallow Junior High, he borrowed a microphone and Hofner violin bass from a friend and began making demos on a dual cassette recorder using samples taken from the FM radio dial. In 1994, Koretsky upgraded to Yamaha MT4X recorder, Concertmate keyboard, BOSS DR110 drum machine, and began teaching himself guitar and music theory. In the late 90s, some of these four track recordings caught the attention of New York producer Mike Dextro. Dextro introduced Koretsky to MIDI sequencing, software production and DJing. In 2003 while DJing in Washington DC, Koretsky met bassist Andy Rourke. Koretsky and Rourke kept in touch and collaborated on several remixes over the years. They formed JETLAG when Rourke relocated to New York City in 2009. During this time, Koretsky continued to DJ, remix, and work as DJ/presenter on Daily Session Radio and East Village Radio. In April 2014, Koretsky and Rourke began collaborating with Irish singer Dolores O'Riordan. JETLAG was re-named D.A.R.K. using the trio's initials.
