Tell us a bit about yourself:
Hi, I’m Kiril, originally from Bulgaria, based in Lisbon, Portugal, and I like time traveling through music
How did you get into DJing?
When I was a kid, in my city, there was a daytime discotheque for kids. I was fascinated by the fact that the DJ was able to make us experience things we didn’t know we can experience by playing and blending tracks and get you on an emotional journey – at one point we’re jumping and the next we were looking for the girl we like to invite her on a slow dance. It’s magical
What DJs have had the most influence on you?
My top 3 DJs who got me introduced to House music in the early 00’s were David Guetta, Bob Sinclar and Armand Van Helden
You’re being put to death, but you can listen to one last track before you die. What track do you choose?
Africanism All Stars – Summer Moon (David Guetta Remix)
What’s the easiest thing about being a DJ?
Nowadays, you can do it from everywhere – the DJ booth of the biggest club or your bedroom
And what’s the hardest thing about being a DJ?
The hardest thing being a DJ is keeping up with everything around. Dj-ing is not only about the music, today is about social media presence, marketing, trends. Being a small DJ who can’t afford a team, you have to do at least 10 jobs in 1 in order to have a chance to succeed.
Best thing about Dance Music culture right now?
Probably the two greatest things about dance music culture today are: 1)Accessibility – from small-town clubs to immense festivals. You can experience it everywhere – there’s a no place where Dance music is not present – and that’s amazing2) Diversity – Dance music culture has evolved so much in the past 2 decades that there’s something for literally every one – from 18 to 75 y.o.
Worst thing about Dance Music culture right now?
It’s getting too much about social media presence and less about the music and the experience, spreading the message, spreading the love
Why should listeners vote for you?
If you like time-travelling on the roller-coaster of House music – I’m your guy. Everything I do is about the journey from the biggest bangers to forgotten jams that will bring you back in time and just when you start dreaming about that forgotten summer affair on the beach, a decade ago, I’ll pull you back to reality.
