One year later, Contemporary Techno Structures series is back, featuring Bas Amro's debut appearance in Sofia and support by local techno minds Milan, Cinnamint, VJs Aksvenur and minimaleye.
An avid follower of the international techno and electronic scene, Bas Amro has become a walking catalogue of artists, labels and releases - all contributing to his growing sound. He grew up in a small town in eastern Holland where he also hosts one of the longest running club nights in the Netherlands; Basic Grooves. His unpretentious nature and modesty is reflective of his varying interests, and can be heard in his sets and productions. Expect to hear anything from broken beats, to dark minimal sounds, to sweet melodic tunes. With gigs in the UK, Spain, Panama, South Africa, Dominican Republic, Russia, to name but a few; his repertoire has become appropriate for just about any setting and atmosphere.
Today Bas Amro is breaking down sound barriers. His latest release, a techno remix of the trance classic, 'Simulated" by Marco V, has had ravers the world over waiting in anticipation for the vinyl-only release. His discography of over 30 releases, includes gems like 'Imposter Persona" and "Le Huitieme Arrondissement". Techno beats are at the forefront of his productions, with emphasis on hypnotic loops and catchy grooves. Influenced by the sounds of Chicago and Detroit, Amro has earned the respect and support of big industry names such as Ryan Elliott, Ilario Alicante, Deetron, Laurent Garnier, Radio Slave, with the list still growing.
Bas Amro's career is an anomaly. While he has established himself through producing - his DJing ability of finding the balance between introducing dancers to eccentric sounds and banging heavy dancefloor classics, has made him adept for playing at any hour. This trajectory has led Amro to believe that in music the journey is the destination.
