The Bulgarian is one of those unique talents who incorporates different styles of music into his productions and he carries this over into electrifying DJ sets.
As the name suggests, he hails from Bulgaria but grew up in Cape Town, South Africa and he takes influences from both the east and west.
Every Bulgarian track is unique and fresh from the last and distinctive to him, but what is common in all of them is a big bass and plenty of groove to get people moving.
He began producing and DJing in very difficult surroundings – in South Africa, in 1997, he had a measly Pentium 166mmx with only 32MB of ram, no Internet and a severe difficulty of getting his hands on any second hand kit to make beats on.
But despite being cut off from much of the world scene, he started to get serious about music. He was into industrial metal at the time and as a result was making that kind of sound before getting into big beat and IDM which then led him to drum and bass and thus to the DJ booth.
Since then he has drifted into house and techno music and made his name. The Bulgarian deconstructs conventional house, while sparring with elements of glitch, sleaze and tech to remaster the beats in his own personal style.
After a few highly successful releases and partnerships with other labels and producers, his unconventional bump and thump sound landed him a spot as one of the original Potty Mouth Music artists where he still resides today.
He opened his own music and recording studio in 2003 and later set up his label FETA with Vlad Sokolov for dirty, bouncy, experimental house after spending six months living with him and 3 more talented producers under the same roof in London at the tail end of 2007.
He continues to turn out belters and has aspirations to take his songs on the road with a full electronic band performance, though whatever the future does bring for him, it is sure to be bright and thumping for The Bulgarian.
