Ogie is active as a music producer and DJ on the electronic music scene for well over a decade.
Not fixed to a particular musick style, ogie’s output shifts through, big-beat, drum’n’bass, electro, house, trip-hop and twisted dubby soundscapes.
One of the early producers coming from a completely digital background & setup, his music started with more dance-floor oriented breakbeat flavours, then took a turn to mellow ambient cinematic soundscapes. Eventually he took a break from music production, to return with explorations in the dance-floor territory of 4/4 electrotechouse beats.
Ogie's tracks have been featured on the first compilations of Macedonian electronic music artists, released by PMG Recordings, Third Ear Music and Margina magazine. Furthermore, he has written and produced music for theatre plays and various multimedia presentations, as well as performed his music live at various venues across Macedonia.
Most notably, his music has been featured on the soundtrack of the award-winning documentary “Maybe Logic: The Lives and Ideas of Robert Anton Wilson”.
As a DJ, he started playing mainly drum’n’bass music from 1999 to 2003 and helped establish the Macedonian drum’n’bass scene. He has DJed in various clubs, events and festivals across Macedonia and held the first resident drum’n’bass night for some time with a team of friends AKA the “01 crew”. More notably, he has been a warm-up DJ for drum'n'bass names such as LTJ Bukem and Aphrodite.
His DJ outings evolved to feature a varied mix consisting mainly of electrotechouse tracks, with a bit of everything else for a blissful alchemical concoction. Recently, he has returned to playing drum'n'bass & jungle at parties again.
