Listen to KiNK’s album ‘Playground’


Strahil Velchev aka KiNK is a powerhouse of the electronic scene and one of the finest purveyor’s of funk in techno and house, for the past few months we have been getting more excited by the arrival of his latest album ‘Playground’, via Running Back – well its finally here!

KiNK’s music is unifying in the best possible way. Channeling the spirit and feeling of a time where it didn’t really matter who the faces behind the music were, KiNK plays with the elements of genres and sub-genres as if the future of it all is still wide-open.  Hailing from Bulgaria, it was nearly impossible to get your hands on all the records and music that fed into a system of raves, clubs and record shops that seemed far away from Sofia, and financially it might as well have been another galaxy. Wanting to DJ without having access to the tracks that spun the carousel meant that you had to create them yourselves. So, here we go with a private bootlegger gone public mastermind and one of the loudest voices in house, techno and beyond.

Since our first meeting with Strahil in 2011, he has become a firm favourite of ours at Data Transmission, recording a special 303 acid podcast – and for us ‘Playground’ is an album you need to hear, so get settled and hit play – RIGHT NOW!

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
