KiNK (Live) @ Welcome to the Future 2013 by Welcome to the Future published on 2013/08/01 21:27:57 +0000 Strahil Velchev a.k.a KiNK is an innovative, uncompromising producer, captivating dj and live performer from Bulgaria, incorporating in his records the very best examples of the electronic music with a KiNK twist. Strahil used to perform as a dynamic and skillful DJ mainly for Bulgarian audience till 2009, when due to a higher demand by the international club scene he decided to take a new challenge: finding a way to play his own music live. The Bulgarian artist found his live setup as a mixture of dusty analog gadgets and modern digital technology. KiNK performs with his machines in the same way as he play records – he is fast, busy, he takes risks and he is pushing his tools to the limit. After his legendary gig at Studio 80 last February, it was clear he had to be back for more at this year's Welcome to the Future Festival. With his unique live set composed of a collection of quirky old groove boxes, little synths and midi gear he’s one of the few artists out there providing a truly live set incorporating lots of improvisation. The Circus was the perfect stage for his antics: compact enough to be able to show his showmanship, big enough to lift the whole atmosphere to higher levels..
