Blaž is a producer without classical computer limits. At first known as a talented young hip-hop producer – under the monicker Dpek, he later “returned” under his birth name.
This time he offered an ecletic view on electronic music, producing wild stories bouncing from hip-hop to ambiental from exciting melodies to experimental glitches.
His live act in that period was one of a kind, with him slamming behind the keyboards and with a drummer, who most knew as a member of a Slovenian post-metal outfit The Canyon Observer. This meant the live shows offered everything – from crazy beats to blasts with audience usually at least cheering.
Meanwhile Blaž showcased his new project BAGS with another producer – Šuljo and still managed to offer his new solo album in March. “Don’t Listen to This” is another remarkable example of his diverse work, while the single / video for the song “Friendzone” offers a deeper view in his private life.
As Blaž commented the video’s content: ”I’ve been in a young-old relationship for a few years now and I’ve found that most people don’t understand it, so we made a video for you to take a good look at it.”
It’s good to see that musicians still offer their views on different social issues, changing or at least educating the world around us.
