The highly creative, Paris-based, Romanian electronic music composer and DJ, BOg, returns to John Digweed’s Bedrock label for his first release of 2016, and already there are sparks of electric excitement in the air!
Having been deeply passionate about music since childhood, BOg has risen to his current prominence through releases on the likes of Crosstown Rebels and Alex Niggemann’s Soulfooled label, in addition Bedrock. Some of 2015’s musical highlights were BOg’s original track ‘Ava’ and his remix of the classic Bedrock track ‘Emerald’ on the ‘Re_Structured’ album, along with the dreamy 9-minutes of ‘Rakuten’ on ‘Underground Sound Of Ibiza 2’.
Now, with ‘Rewired’, BOg is raising the creative bar even higher, with 3 new musical masterpieces, showcasing his unique creative talent. The stunning, melody-rich title track perfectly showcases what the young Romanian is capable of, with its dreamy, subtle anthemic attitude. ‘The Other Side Of The River’ takes a slightly deeper melodic route, but the end result is no less enthralling. Finally, with the hypnotic, filmic ambient electronica of ‘Heartless City’, BOg highlights his ability to also create stylish excursions that go beyond the dancefloor.
With talent and releases like this, 2016 is already shaping up to be an amazing year for electronic music!
Bedrock launches into 2015 with a highly creative double-header from two respected artists from the revolution that is currently happening in the Romanian electronic scene – Atapy & BOg. Whether it’s the deeply delicious uplifting melodies and dramatic strings of “Strung”, or the more intense melancholic journey of “Despair”, there can be no denying that this duo are one’s to watch this year. Their distinctive collaborative style and attention to detail marks them out as having unique creative talent.
For Romania’s Arpi Takacs (aka Atapy), addiction to electronic music started early, first as a regular freak in club corners and then behind the decks, developing his DJ skills. Since 2010, his career has been firmly on the rise with likes of M.A.N.D.Y., Ritchie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier, Dubfire, Tom Budden, Djuma Soundsystem and many more, championing his highly desirous productions. It’s all about quality and not quantity for Atapy, with previous key releases on his own Cimelde label and Get Physical, alongside his collaborations with (amongst others): Noir, Digitaria and Cari Golden; and reworking The XX and the legendary “Knight Rider” theme, here is an artist with both style and passion.

Also deeply passionate about music since childhood, he has risen to his current prominence through releases on Crosstown Rebels, Fumakilla, Akbal Music, and (not forgetting) a recent superb remix of “Gridlock” by none other than John Digweed & Nick Muir on Bedrock.
