For December's gig we are glad to introduce another Italian artist - Claudio PRC. Known since his early works for Prologue - the label which later released his debut album "Inner State" - he is now established as a key name in deep techno scene, playing around the globe and regularly releasing his own music and collaborations with other artists like Terence Fixmer, Obtane, Ness.
The latter is also in for 14th. Since he moved to Sofia last year, Ness became one of the main contributors for the Contemporary Techno Structures events. Under the alias 'The Gods Planet' Claudio and Andrea release their production on TGP - the homonymous label has five EPs in its catalogue so far, featuring also remixes from the likes of Brando Lupi and Donato Dozzy.
We are also looking forward to the first appearance of Kliment in Sofia after a (too) long break. For that period the co-founder of Artmospheric released two albums (one of them under his psytrance moniker Once Upon a Time..) and is currently working on another, ambient one.
VJ line-up consists of the context-free geek minimaleye and Vladzen who is showing his latest works with Phormatik Visual Lab called Phantasmagoria at Suspacious Gallery , December 1-3rd.

The upcoming autumn edition of Contemporary Techno Structures provides a full recharge with high quality deep techno music.
We are looking forward to Refracted's debut appearance in Sofia. During the past year the Berlin-based Spanish artist released some of his "deeply layered rhythms and atmospheric elements" which can surely be counted among the most conceptual hypnotic techno EP's for the period.
October's line-up features also Ness who is still very active in both production and playing music around the world, some live patterns from the latest developments of Milan and Cinnamint, a DJ set by another vinyl-addict - TImewalker and visuals by AksvenuR and minimaleye.

The news for Mr Henke's upcoming visit bring us a lot of experimental spirit, and it seems like a perfect moment for another idm-oriented session. Once again, a recording from last year's festival, and this one is a dj set from Polygon Ring who is among the most trusted fine noise suppliers around, and a regular Artmospheric contributor.

The seventh edition of Artmospheric Festival will take place July 12th - 15th, gathering music lovers, artists and leading figures of electronic music in the heart of the West Balkan mountains, Bulgaria.
Finest musical selection of top level, crystal clear sound system, conceptual installations and visuals, and a parallel program of useful lectures and workshops - carefully presented outdoors in the mountain - is what makes Artmospheric a special venue for alternative culture.

I.R.I.S. is a collaboration between Therapist and AuroraX, it stands for Iridescent Rain In Space and outer space is exactly where we're going. Embark on a deep space voyage, drawn by the mysteries of The Great Attractor, an immensely dense gravitational anomaly, located 250 million light years away from our own planet. Track the solitary journey of a single spacecraft, sent on a mission to this massive object in the Centarius supercluster, passing by countless star systems, nebulae, quasars and galaxies.

A new Bulgarian label for techno and house music has recently been founded by Nikolai Dichev (one of the very few Bulgarian techno artists released on vinyl in the beginning of the century) and Victor Marinov (also known as Victor's Mob, Vataff Project). We are looking forward for many interesting tracks coming from Port One!
