Bulgarian beat and R&B scene is one to watch for, with many hidden gems. And Low Heat & Lina Nikol are real fine examples.
Coming from the sunny Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s 2nd biggest city, Boyan (Low Heat) transitioned from DJ-ing in high school to teaching music production in the renowned Sound Ninja Music Academy. Through this journey, he managed to craft his own unique sound of vibrant future beats and funky synths, drawing inspirations from legends like Flying Lotus, J Dilla & Elaquent.
Listen 'Good Together' :
Lina Nikol’s sassy vocals & tender storytelling instantly make you connect with her on a personal level. Influenced by a range of artists like Moonchild, Anderson .Paak, or Alicia Keys, she was raised in a musical family, starting piano when she was 4. Back to ‘Good Together’ and its process, she explains “The song reminds me of summer & timelessness – those sweet moments of casual flings when you meet someone’s eyes and that brings a smile to your face. We wanted to create something lush and catchy with a contemporary r&b feel, and that’s how “Good Together” was born“.
And when those two got together, the result is pure magic. ‘Good Together’ as an ideal example, this sultry, synth-driven R&B piece will surely seduce your every cell!
