It is time. Bolder, weirder and as boundary pushing as we have ever been. We present our third season - and we’re immensely proud of this one.
Making a return to the formula we used to start it all. We take over Micro’s two rooms. Two of the finest local selectors in support of two of the touring circuit’s stalwarts.
▼ Dark Room ▼ Black Merlin x Max Abysmal x Dimitroff
∆ Light Room ∆ Annna (Истерика) All Night Long
Black Merlin – the dark wizard alias of British musician and field recording artist George Thompson. Releasing on labels including Island of the Gods, Pinkman and Omnidic, his productions are experiments within the different nooks of electronic music. His genre-spanning career is noticeably more diverse than your standard electronic music producer and yet there is still a sound or feeling throughout the catalogue which denotes 'Black Merlin'. His universe is rich, hypnotic with flashes of EBM, techno tinted industrial and space disco.
Australian born and raised, Max Abysmal quickly becomes a prominent figure of the Dutch scene after relocating to Amsterdam. Aside from being a resident of Red Light Radio, De School’s basement and a regular at some of the most renowned festivals the Dutch summer has to offer, Max also stands out with releases on Safe Trip, a label ran by Young Marco. With an obvious love for percussion-filled tracks, Max has mastered the rare art of playing a low-tempo, yet highly intense set. A firm favourite of our extended family, we’ve travelled far and wide to see his live performances. A Bulgarian debut was long overdue and we are truly honoured to be the ones to deliver it.
Dimitroff is one of the unsung heroes of the local underground. Playing since his teenage years, he has more than a decade of experience behind his back as a regular at the underground gems of Sofia. Those in-the-know have seen him rip apart Studio EW or (dolu) with his relentless breed of body-twisting, neck-breaking four-by-floor electronics. Drawing influences from the cannon of the Chicago house DJs his mixes constitute of tracks with a fat kick and stomping bass catching people by surprise with quick cuts and harsh transitions. We love him, and are proud to finally host him. Handling opening duties in the dark room Dimitroff will set the tone for a proper party.
Taking control of our light room for an all-nighter, we present Annna. She is one of the leading forces of Sofia’s next generation of DJs. Founder of Isterika - a project that bridges the gaps between electronic music, performance and visual arts. Her sets are a compelling journey through the depths of cold-wave, italo, balearic and downtempo. Never afraid to step out of the comfort zone and with a killer instinct for the mood of the audience. With a strong aesthetic sense, Annna is sure to take us into the charms of variety, inspiring alternative states of mind and freakish body moves.
The venue has a limited capacity. Pre-sale tickets are cheaper than usual, and are expected to sell out.
We always reserve some of the venue capacity for at-the-door sales - arrive early to be on the safe side.
We believe parties should be safe, tolerant and inclusive spaces. Aggression, racism and homophobia will not be tolerated. The guilty will be evicted and banned from future events. All members of staff are trained to help - if you experience any threatening behaviour talk to us and we’ll sort it out.
