Borrowed Idenity 6


Biography —

Made in Romania but soon living in Germany as a political refugee, Borrowed Identity’s name says a lot about his life. His musical upbringing was a melange of ethnic music from friends, weird stuff from local libraries and whatever else he could find in record stores and on the internet, thus explaining the fact he makes anything from classical to ambient, house to techno, experimental to electro, hiphop to pop music.

Most recently the man has also released on DVS1′s Mistress Recordings, turning the heads of a whole new raft of fans, as well as sitting pretty in the top 10 of RA’s most charted tracks. Never one too concerned with…

Most recently the man has also released on DVS1′s Mistress Recordings, turning the heads of a whole new raft of fans, as well as sitting pretty in the top 10 of RA’s most charted tracks. Never one too concerned with genres and instead focussed on making music with real heart and soul, Borrowed Identity oozes passion for music of all varieties and that really shows in his considered releases.

“When I’m DJing I want my sound to be ever adaptable,” says the man himself, “like the skin of a chameleon, which changes colour and intensity as and when it needs to best blend in with its setting.” With such a broad musical palette and such wide reaching tastes, Borrowed Identity is an artist to be watched.

Dj Support by the likes of: Mike Huckaby, Ian Pooley, Move D, DVS1, Delano Smith, Catz ‘N Dogz, Laurent Garnier, Rainer Trüby, Detroit Swindle, KINK, Tiefschwarz, Lovebirds, Jimpster, Moomin, tINI, Brawther, Snuff Crew, Sven Weisemann, Norm Talley, 6th Borough Project, Ashley Beedle, Jaques Renault, Luke Solomon, Groove Armada, Satoshie Tomiie, Huxley, Nicholas, Trickski, Alex Barck (Jazzanova), Trickski, Mousse T, Fred P, Daniel Bortz, Darko Esser, Brothers’ Vibe, Axel Boman and many more tastemakers
