Boro Stojanovski, aka Analogue Resistance hails from the small yet booming city of Veles, Macedonia. A town brimming with industrial complexes and where weather contrasts are stark - from the coldest, darkest Winters to the hottest, longest Summers. Literally growing up next to a factory, awoken each day by the bustle of vehicles transporting steel workers and amidst the bang & clatter of cutting saws & slamming hammers against metal surfaces 'AR' heard music - right there and then the seed which now blooms in his production work was planted. Dark, raw, hypnotic and Industrial bouquets continue to blossom through his work today as a direct reverberation of yesteryear, harking back to the earliest metallic percussive influences he experienced in his formative years as a cheeky little kid being chased out of his favoured playgrounds and first music studios, abandoned factories.
At the age of 7 he had his initial experience with a musical instrument after coming home from school to discover a keyboard in the dining room. After immediately sitting down and playing until bed time, totally mesmerised by the sounds it was producing his dad tells him that he can keep it and attend elementary music classes after school, which he does with glee. Continuing on from that age 'til where he begins forming bands at 12 years old. Drawing influences from his brother and the likes of: Iggy Pop, The Sex Pistols, The Ramones, The Exploited, The Clash and so on. The next logical step was to learn studio production techniques in order to maintain total control over the whole production process from start to finish. At 17 he first cracked DAW and begins to experiment with basic hip-hop flavours with other young musical enthusiasts. The year following he joins 'Adrenaline' who record and press a couple of LP's. But after being in a group dynamic for so long 'AR' yearns to venture onto producing some works on the solo tip.
Even though already well versed and familiar with the sounds of such artists as Kraftwerk, FSOL, Orbital and such, Analogue Resistance experiences his first real techno party at a PMG Kolektiv event and was instantly hooked after traversing down the beloved deep and hypnotic rabbit hole. He then turns his dab hand to the electronic side of production and lands his first release is under the alias New Culture Terrorist (NCT) in 2008 on Juan Kitchen Delights, which is one of his releases he holds nearest and dearest to his heart as this was what spurred him on to keep going on the electronic tip. After this the creative flood gates opened and the numbers started streaming out under many different monikers, such as: NCT, HAR1, HEPC (high energy particles collider), and RS3057.
In 2014 Analogue Resistance is born and is here to stay as this is the working title which suits Boro's modus operandi the most fittingly. With 6 releases currently on labels such as : Juan Kitchen Delights (JKD), Vox Pop Arts (VPA), Hubble Trax and Arithmetic Loop, he is excitedly looking towards the future and all opportunities to write and produce much more material for everyone's collective aural enjoyment.
