Known to many as the Godfather of Bulgarian techno, DJ Steven is a true legend in his native land. Having co-founded the biggest party promoter in the country, Metropolis, in 1996, the former DMC champion has had a huge influence on the scene in the eastern European country for the last two decades. DJ Steven’s name has become synonymous with the mind-twisting acid and techno he’s been championing both in the booth and at his raves, which not only single handedly started the rave movement in Bulgaria, but have introduced generations of ravers to the sounds of behemoths like Sven Väth, Josh Wink and Carl Cox. Now the Sofia-based artist has started a new chapter by launching his own imprint and releasing his productions under the moniker Stevo Kurt.

Stevo Kurt a.k.a. DJ Steven

Dubbed Mekanika Recordings, the imprint is co-founded by DJ Steven and local rising stars Zimone and Ziggy. The label is focused on the three artists’ cutting-edge techno and house pursuits, bridging DJ Steven’s longevity as a DJ with the forward-thinking sound of his partners in crime.

Following the success of Mekanika Recordings’ debut release Panika by Unanimity, Stevo Kurt returns for its follow-up, MKNK002. The four-tracker sees the Metropolis founder at his finest, delivering two relentless, driving originals, soaked in his signature dark techno and pulsating acid sounds. In addition, the EP also features two fresh remixes from rising Bulgarian talent Asymmetrik.

After being on the forefront of the Bulgarian underground techno scene for more than two decades, DJ Steven aka Stevo Kurt returns with a stellar rolling acid techno release on his newly launched imprint, Mekanika Recordings. Just like its predecessor, MKNK002 is soaked in the Metropolis head honcho’s signature dark techno and pulsating acid sound, showing once again his incredible skills and creative might are not just reserved for the DJ booth. In addition to two originals, the EP also sees young Bulgarian talent Asymmetrik on remix duties, transforming Stevo Kurt’s sounds through the prism of Berghain-esque techno.
