Too amicable to be a bad boy, and too rebellious to be a good boy...
Denislav Velev, better known as Garo to friends, is one of the key architects behind the blossoming underground scene in Sofia. Curator of the Studio EW, Garo has been instrumental in creating the electronic music culture in Bulgaria.
In 2012 Garo moved to Berlin lured by the endless possibilities the city could offer for his own personal and musical development. A bona-fide crate digger, he is often to be found head buried in the bins of Berlin´s record stores and vinyl markets, searching for rare pearls.
Such dedication and diligence towards unearthing dusty treasures have endowed him with that much sought after ability to effortlessly blend old school and contemporary alike.
Always bearing a wide grin from ear to ear, Garo´s infectiously positive and charming persona allied to his distinguished ability for selecting fine, cerebral records has since seen him quietly and unassumingly gain the plaudits of more established peers in the scene.
