Dummy Mix 553 // Goro

Blending rap flips with "undiscovered Balkan gold", Goro's Dummy Mix is a culture clash in the best possible way...

Bulgaria-born, Berlin-based Goro is a producer who eyes club music on a global scale. He makes music with the ethos of ‘counterbalancing westernisation with easternisation’ (according to his Soundcloud bio), channeling his Balkan heritage through his eclectic, explosive sound.

Having recently appeared on Merci Jitter’s ‘Riddled Form‘ compilation, Goro is gearing up to release his debut album next month – ‘Unbound Forever’, a document that draws inspiration from far-flung and as-yet-undiscovered genres including Romanian “Instrumentala Criminala”, older forms of Turkish Bubbling and classical Bulgarian-Roma Kiuchek.

A no-holds-barred blend of Eastern dance slotted next to Goro’s flips of the Ying Yang Twins and Bollywood tracks, Goro’s Dummy Mix is an essential listen. “The mix was fun to do!” Goro says. “I threw in a varied selection of the most typical tracks that I usually play from me and my friends, as well as some undiscovered Balkan gold.

“I am also premiering here for the first time a good number of the now-mastered tracks from my album 🙂 Btw you can hear Daniel [Dummy’s New Music Editor]’s voice message when I asked him to change the cover photo (as he was boarding a flight) as the first thing in the intro hahaha.”
