Valentin Florea aka vlf has linked his name in recent years to Bipolar, the party brand focused on bringing the pleasant breeze of Romania’s underground house & techno to the Western side of the country, yet not losing contact with Bucharest. As the Bipolar resident DJ, he had the chance of sharing the DJ booth with the likes of Raresh, Petre Inspirescu, Amorf, Barac, Cezar, Herodot, or Priku.
Usually building a steamy calm warmup, as he likes to keep things under control, vlf finds the perfect balance between the dark alleys of minimal techno and the shiny deep house hills. As he’s one of the DJs in constant contact with what Romania has to offer in terms of good music, we invited him to mix our newest De Pe La Noi episode (where he mixed only Romanian tracks), alongside a few questions to discover Romania from his own perspective.
The place you’d move for your whole life
The graphic artist you like the most
The figure (scientist, king, a.s.o.) who encompasses the Romanian spirit
The Romanian label you’ve listened over and over again
The club closest to your heart
The spot that you can tag as iconic for Bucharest
The Romanian word you enjoy saying it the most
