Insom is the Drum&Bass/Neuro solo project of Gabriel Mentis, born in 1987 and raised in Athens, Greece.

From an early age Gabriel began classical music studies, learning to play the violin and participating in school bands.

As a teenager, he discovered cubase, and started experimenting with electronic sounds, while Insom was his graffiti name for years.

After awhile of learning how to lay down beats he upped his style by producing various breaks and beats, mostly Drum&Bass. His tracks have been released by labels such as Ammunition, Close 2 Death, Mindtech, Future Funk, m-Atome, Melting Pot, Audio Theory and many others. Various projects such as "Dub Riots" and "Wosui" proves that Gabriel has not set boundaries and the diverse of styles he is producing range from Reggae-Dub & HipHop to Dubstep & PsyBreaks.

Being a member of the Urban Danja crew and promoting various nights such as "Deep Beats" and "Reggaewise", he has organised and headlined all over Greece, including international guests such as Noisia, Gridlok, Optiv, Audio, Chris SU, MC Coppa, Gaudi, Tunnidge, Nocturnal, Trei amongst others.

He has participated and played in festivals and parties such as, 'Athens Legalize Protestival' 2010-2013 , 'Athens Digital Week' 2010, 'Music & Culture' festival 2011, "Beach Street Festival" 2013-2014 and others.

His tracks are receiving major support lately, from "Renegade Hardware Podcasts" to Jade's and Billain's sets, while his forthcoming tracks will shake the scene !
