Bop

Hailing from Saint-Petersburg, Russia, Bop is a new breed of producer intent on re-writing the rulebook with an intoxicating ice-cold sound; embracing influences from dub techno, deep house and IDM through to minimalist Dubstep and ambient Drum & Bass. Inspired by the likes of Photek and Paradox, he has swiftly carved out a niche of his own. On heavy rotation on the Bop home stereo you’re as likely to hear dub techno as you are free jazz, trip hop and even hard-core punk.

Bop is a banana-eating vegan with an 11-year-old dog named Booyaka. He also says he can’t see without his glasses but fortunately for us his ears are in perfect working order! When he’s not busy playing classic 8-bit computer games from the eighties, Bop finds time to run his own label Microfunk Music.

Expect the unexpected and cast aside your drum & bass preconceptions; Bop is an artist light-years ahead of the game and he’s determined to win the symphonic space race by stretching the parameters of electronic music.

Bop’s music has been placed on Microsoft’s ‘Forza Horizon 3’.
