De Pe La Noi series aims to go deep into the Romanian undeground to discover the beauty of this holy land and the amazing people that inhabit it. Each episode will feature a Romanian artist mixing only Romanian sounds and pointing out a few places and people that inspire him into his work. The series celebrates 100 years since The Great Union (1918), the moment that marked the birth of modern Romania.
Even if you were just pinched in recent years by Romania’s underground scene, it’s almost impossible you haven’t encountered Vid‘s deep, dark and disturbing sound. Transforming that genetic Romanian nostalgia into close to unbearable emotions, Bacău born Sorin Rastoaca has dug his own beautiful path into the house & techno groove for a quite few years, releasing on Brouqade or Pleasure Zone and on his own label, An|dromeda.
So time has come to let him reveal his Romanian roots and sources of inspiration with an amazing mix, recorded at Avi Cola Târgu Mureș (containing only Romanian related tracks) and a short yet delightful interview.
