5551Hailing 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 techno and minimalist dubstep through to IDM and ambient drum & bass. At the turn of the millennium, however, he was listening to the polar opposite, discovering the heavyweight output of Konflict, Ed Rush & Optical, C4C and Bad Company. But it wasn’t long until he found the experimental edge of drum & bass more appealing, the likes of Photek and Paradox inspiring him to carve out a sound of his own. On heavy rotation on the Bop home stereo now you’re more likely to hear IDM, dub techno, free jazz yeah, trip hop and even hardcore punk.

Bop is a green tea-drinking, banana-eating vegan with a dog named Booyaka, who despite the calming and soothing nature of his music frequently gets mad when there’s no hot water in his Saint-Petersburg apartment. 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 co-venture label Microfunk with Dephecta and a free net label called Microcircuit.

Bop made his Med School debut with the stunningly beautiful “Song About My Dog” and glitch-ridden “Random Thoughts” which rapidly sold through and was subsequently repressed. Bop and his dog Booyaka have returned from intergalactic space travel to cool you down this summer with more ice-cold subtleties and Med School is proud to present his debut album “Clear Your Mind”.

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.
