Wanted by the galactic federation of soundsmiths for crimes against normality, Bop has finally landed on terra firma with the final instalment of his ‘Untitled Pattern’ chronicles. The trilogy ends with an experimental sonic concoction of techno infused drum & bass, as his final mission to evade captivity and remain at large.
‘Untitled Pattern 65’ documents our cosmonaut’s greatest adventure yet. Defying reason and convention, this techno-charged missing link delves deep as a progressive, acid-techno, stepper from the 6th dimension.
Yet another testament to the proficiency of one of the universe’s most extraordinary producers is ‘Untitled Pattern 63’ – a garage infused hip-hop hybrid with a dash of dub. Like a pulsating heartbeat, ‘Untitled Pattern 62’ guides through a whimsical vocal and melancholic pads with a cozy sub-bass.
As gravity takes hold and his feet remain firmly on the ground ‘Untitled Pattern 64‘ chimes through with distorted lo-fi ambience, and is the ultimate transmission to signify the end of his untitled adventures.
It’s been a great year for Bop, with DJ sets at Roxy Prague, Hospitality On The Beach and still to come at Hospitality In The Park 2018. Receiving frequent support from DJ Mag, BBC Radio 1’s Rene Lavice and Worldwide FM’s Laurent Garnier throughout 2018, it’s been an impressive year for this Russian magician, rounding off with the release of ‘Untitled Patterns EP 3’.
Hailing from Saint-Petersburg in Russia, Bop is a new breed of producer intent on re-writing the rulebook with an intoxicating ice-cold sound; embracing influences from deep house, dub techno and IDM through to minimalist dubstep and ambient drum & bass. Inspired by the likes of Photek and Paradox, he has swiftly carved out a sounds 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 hardcore punk.
Bop made his Med School debut with the stunningly beautiful “Song About My Dog” and glitch-ridden “Random Thoughts” which sold out rapidly and was subsequently re-pressed on vinyl. Bop and his dog Booyaka returned from intergalactic space again in summer 2009 with more super fresh subtleties in Bop’s debut album ‘Clear Your Mind’. Then in May 2010, the Bop ‘Remix Your Mind EP’ was released, featuring re-works by Blu Mar Ten, Lynx, Subwave, Thinnen (iambop.com remix competition winner) and Unquote.
Since then, Bop has released multiple tunes on labels such as Hospital, Spearhead Records, and RAM Records. Expect the unexpected and cast aside your drum & bass aspersions; 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.
