EDMC RADIO: Bamboora // MASS EDMC [Boston, MA]
April 23rd, 2014MASS EDMC STAFF
Bamboora is among those rare individuals who value music as much as life itself. Although born and raised in Turkey, Boston has quickly become home to the Turkish DJ. Blessed with a deeply ingrained knowledge of house music & all of its relatives, Bamboora holds versatility as his most prized possession when it comes to taking over the decks night in and out. His unique style and unlimited energy have allowed him to play some of Northeast’s biggest and most respected venues and share the decks with some of today’s most established superstars, including Tiesto, Avicii, Calvin Harris, Axwell, and Fedde Le Grand to name just a few.
Most recently, Bamboora entered and won the NV Concepts DJ Mix Invitational to open for Hardwell at the House of Blues in Boston. Today, we proudly present Bamboora’s winning opening mix as this episode of EDMC Radio.
/////////// WHAT’S YOUR APPROACH TO DJING? WHAT DRIVES YOU?
I don’t have a systematic approach to DJing. I simply started DJing, because I needed an outlet to play all the music I have been collecting. I enjoy listening to all kinds of music, which leads me into playing all different kinds of music in my sets.
I try to use my taste and my current mood for selection of tracks, and the venue, crowd and time for the order. I believe observation and delivery are the most important elements to be a good DJ.
/////////// WHAT MUSIC ARE YOU INTO NOW? WHO’S GOT YOUR ATTENTION?
I’ve never been able to pinpoint what I am into. The amount of good music that comes out at the moment is so overwhelming to narrow down what I enjoy. I have a broad range of taste with music too so I can listen to an indie record followed by a bass heavy counterpart and totally enjoy both. To name some artists I have been digging lately: James Egbert, tchami, Marc Benjamin, Hucci, Maelstrom, Slideback, BRRIO, Jason Risk, New World Sound, Jesse Slayter.
/////////// WHAT DID YOU GO FOR WITH THIS MIX?
The original purpose of this mix was to win an opening slot at an event I wanted to play. I assessed the time slot that was going to be given to me and what kind of mood I wanted to create within that time so I started playing around; this is what I end up coming up with. There is a progression and intensity as the mix goes by just to show that the party doesn’t have to peak where it starts.
