Techno, new wave, disco
If anything could be called Borokov Borokov’s formula, it probably would be derived from the following quote: “First and foremost we make music that we ourselves want to dance to. Even when the music in question does not immediately sound like dance music.»
The result may resemble for example angular synth pop, … work incapacitated hi-NRG, krauttrock with a double ‘t’, supra-freudian elektrapunk, birthday-themed acid house, no-no wave, polyphonic panic attacks or multilingual lamentation. As if with each track, the band seizes a new opportunity to waltz out of the confines of its own straitjacket, albeit with no guarantee of success. By the way, they found their first drum machine on a rubbish dump in Borsbeek.
Between 2018 and 2022, Borokov Borokov released five records withAntwerp-based Rotkat Records: the lo-fi venture Eerlijk Delen, the 1/2-live album LOSBOLLEN, the ‘2 LPs for the price of 1 LP’ Enkel Duetten & Wachtmuziek and the critically acclaimed De Verkeerde Fout. 2 of these 5 records feature collaborations with artists such as De Witte Kunst, Dennis Tyfus, Charlotte Adigéry,, Miaux, Huub Prins, Mathieu Terryn, Fenne Kuppens, Elko B, etc. In 2023, Amsterdam-based Magnetron Music will release Borokov Borokov’s sixth album POTATATO.
The band played on stages at home and abroad including CTM Festival (DE), Fusion Festival (DE), Maintenant Festival (FR), Festival Nouvelle(s) Scene(s) (FR), coaxial (USA), Best Kept Secret (NL), Down The Rabbit Hole (NL), Paradiso (NL), Ampere Open Air / boilerroom.tv, AB – Braindance (BE), TRIX /We Are Open (BE), etc. In 2020, the band was part of the renowned SHAPE platform (EU).
