Who is The Bulgarian?

The Bulgarian is the business of dropping big beats, both on and off the Potty Mouth Music roster. With a production career that spans more than 10 years, his first release as The Bulgarian in December 2006 quickly became a best seller for the Second Session label on Since then, he’s taken his bass-heavy, fidget house sound to some of the most respected artists in the business.

The Bulgarian’s road to success began 10 years ago in Cape Town, South Africa. Here, he discovered his passion for making music in his computer. In 2003, he volunteered to help out at the prestigious Red Bull Music Academy in Cape Town, where he immersed himself in varied genres of electronic music. With his new exposure, The Bulgarian ditched his dnb sound to open up a music studio. After two-and-a-half years of moderate success and a European holiday packed with inspiration, the aspiring producer decided it was time to shake things up by focusing on his productions—and thus was born "The Bulgarian".

The success of his Second Session release as The Bulgarian, led him to him signing an EP onto London’s On the Brink Recordings. Additionally, the glitch-heavy remix of the original Troydon track “I Wanna Tell Ya” continues to haunt club audiences with its hollow vocals backed by his relentless reworked bass.

The Bulgarian’s artistic inspiration carries over into production work as Mr.Elastik, a more minimal-inspired sound with a techno make-up. He also collaborates with his former studio partner as Tone Deaf Junkies, who released their debut album last year. Its eclectic electronic style ranges from glitch to electrostep dnb, along with a new self-dubbed sound The Bulgarian calls “Kwaitech.” “It’s a tech derivative of South Africa’s native Kwaito sound,” he says.

In addition to his success in the studio, The Bulgarian has held numerous club residencies, including Voltage in Cape Town and Homegrown at Mercury Live. In May 2007, he was featured on Andy Mac’s prestigious Cream Radio show, where he joined the mixing ranks of some of the world’s most acclaimed DJs and producers. His self-recorded “Slutty Fringe Selection” mix also enjoyed a 7,000 downloads in its first two weeks as an internet blog release.

The Bulgarian finds a place on the Potty Mouth Roster with help from his unconventional thump-and-bump sound. Using elements of glitch, sleaze and tech, The Bulgarian deconstructs conventional house and remasters the beats with what he calls “mad lines.”

“I bring a unique kind of mental craziness to the sound with lots of big bass and hungry energy,” he says.

It’s fidget house that buzzes as loudly as the peak-hour dance floor.

Evidement c'est toujours des annonyme qui témoigne leur méchanceté, et dans ce cas ci une ignorance vis a vis de l'art, et un esprit critique mal formé... triste vie.
