Featured: The Good Tracks 2017 by Fonoteka Elektrika

When it comes to the end of the year most of the music journals start their retrospection about their favorite music in the past 365 days. Unlike others, Fonoteka Elektrika invited some of Bulgaria’s best music diggers for their selection of favorite music released in year 2017.  We’re glad to be featured among this super-duper-cool selection of music. Please do enjoy it here!

Yours trully,

Фаза. w/ Roboknob @ Tellme | 30.12

ФАЗА. invites Roboknob and Thomas Numan | Synthetic for a last-faza-2017-party with our friends Algorithm and Vice at a favorite dance bar such as Sofia’s TellMe. This time as the space of the booth is really small we’ll try to bring something different. You might never saw us DJing in the matter of playing tracks and records, but on the other hand we make tracks too, right? So yea, author tracks from us, both Roboknob and side projects and some of the music our there that we like.

Dexydi EP out on Macro Recordings – Berlin

Info:

Sofia’s quirky techno underground is densifying. Evolving around the Diviat Slon parties (residents: StefaK & Stefan Goldmann), the Beton nights, the indoors offspins of Artmospheric festival and unannounced appearances of KiNK under his Cyrillic guise, raw and rave-infused techno is increasingly defining the city’s sound of the small hours.

Roboknob are part of this movement, and this is their debut EP. A live hardware duo, Yasen and Stanislav drop rugged, noisy machine jams around the Bulgarian capital and have been regulars at Artmospheric. The EP’s tracks have been distilled from their live repertoire and were mixed by Stefan Goldmann into sharply defined form with added bite.

‘Dexydi’ is Greek for acid – the corrosive liquid, not the music. Accordingly, its heavy-handed single-note bass attack will cut through anything. ‘Spellbind’ is more bouncy with frantic upward movements, distorted percussive fallout and a seasick bass foundation. ‘Liulka’ handles two layers of time rubbing off of each other: quirky and pushing high in the sky, against the bass drum mechanics down low. A suitable acoustic symbol for Sofia’s state of techno.

Happy new 2016 year!

Happy New 2016 year! 2015 was a really intense and successful year for us! We had a radio appearance Subfactor radio show, we did a music score for a contemporary dance performance at the State opera in Stara Zagora, we’ve played live at Das Werk Maschinenraum in Austria. We’ve worked on a project called TRIAC that actually it’s still on a WIP stage and we are working on our first album. All that is because of your massive support and we THANK YOU all! Be safe and keep raving!!!
All the best,
RoboKnob
