  • Ambient
  • Experimental
  • Drone
  • Noise
  • Melancholy

“we book artists that we want to see live. sometimes we release music.” Is how Sofia’s Amek Collective succinctly describe their activities. There’s more to it of course. Their sonic output ranges from ambient, drone, dub, post/club, the darker recesses of electronic music. Their promoting activities are equally important, and over the years they have booked the likes of Nadja, Aidan Baker, thisquietarmy etc across the Bulgarian capital. Surviving Eastern Europe since 2008 is another of their mottos, and it just about describes the modus operandi of music/activists/venues functioning on shoestring budgets largely from donations or community support. DIY or DIE, as they say. Label boss Angel Simitchiev has prepared an overview of the label’s output, a haunting, darkish voyage across scenic sonics.
