Scoro aka Bogdan Scoromide is a constant presence in the clubs of Bucharest in recent years. He started his DJ career in 2009 by approaching an experimental style through various small locations in Bucharest. He was known for his rather difficult style, mixing electro-acoustic improvisations, modern psychedelic and free-jazz, later becoming a Control Club resident. This experimental approach was then channeled towards club music, and today Scoro mixes in his one style house, techno, post-industrial & jakbeat, all the time trying to create polyrhythms.

We are at number 10 with our series and we have a mix from DJ soFa, from Brussels. As he likes to say, he is a “dj and vinyl victim” since 1997, playing all around Brussels, Belgium and Europe. He is a very eclectic dj, playing a wide range of electronic music, from dubstep to house and techno, always doing experiments. Being a versatile dj he managed, during the years, to share the stage with artists from a very diverse spectrum of electronic music, artists like Aardvarck, Actress, Ceephax, Danny Breaks, Egyptian Lover, Mike Dehnert, MLZ, Neil Landstrumm, Shackleton, Spirit Catcher, Substance & Vainqueur, Tim Exile and many others.
DJ soFa is running Lamadameaveclechien, an independent label that aims to release good and eclectic music on physical formats (vinyl and CD). The label is releasing mostly experimental stuff from friends and artists that share the same musical vision.
DJ soFa will visit Bucharest and Sibiu at the beginning of April, so listen carefully this podcast to get a glance of what you will experience during these two parties.

Hipodrome Podcast series continues with Alexandru Jijian, an up-and-coming dj from Bucharest, Romania. With this podcast, he had shown his experimental side. For me this mix is like a very very hot summer day, like the ones we are having right now … The mix has around 90 minutes and it’s starting very deep, then as the heat is getting higher and higher, the mix is going into some ambient stuff. By the time when we passed half of the mix, the heat seems to disappear slightly as the night is coming. The mix takes a sudden turn and goes to straight up techno.
