    The first association which jumps out in our minds when the name 1000 names is mentioned is Bulgarian electronic music for export. Behind the artistic nicknames Cassio Blaster and 99 Mistakes are hidden Margo and Niko - two Bulgarian producers and DJs.

    The Man-Machine from Bronx is coming to Bulgaria for the third time. If you have not seen before Rahzel, the biggest beatboxer in the world, this time you have no excuse. Because of him now beatbox, the fifth element of hip hop, is a separate art form.

    We have not event tried to define precisely Cynic's music - since 1987 the American combo has experimented with everything from thrash metal to saturated death metal with absolutely free improvisations. It is strange that Cynic are so famous right now - in 2008 they won applause with Traced in Air and now they are on tour with Dream Theater. Just ten days before their concert in Kavarna, vocalist Paul Masvidal told us a few things about playing in front of 20 000 people and the beauty of life as a whole.

    It is a Monday morning and in the corridors and studios of TV2 you can sense unusual excitement. There is a good reason for us to become a part of the whole mess - there are only about ten days remaining till the triple concert of Reviu, Hipodil and Control and a little before the last rehearsals we have a meeting with Vaso Giurov, Milena Slavova, Svetlio Vitkov and Kolio Gilana.

    The nickname Cooh is well familiar along with the HMSU parties but we have heard very few things about Balkansky. In fact, both names belong to Ivan Shopov. Just 26, he has great success on the drum'n'bass stage, 35 records released by foreign labels and constants sets abroad.

    The jazz experimentators from De Phazz have always surprised us with some non-standard ideas and charge us with positive attitude and chillout sound. We are sure that their second live in Sofia will be at least as good as the first - that is what Pit Baumgartner, the main person in De Phazz, promised us.

    There has not been a Bulgarian concert with such a store of energy for a long time - on 9 April in Blue Box we will see Animatsionerite, Panican Whyasker and Babyface Clan performing together. So we contacted the leaders of the three bands - Gurko, Nufri and Naso Ruskov, to have a talk about the romantic sides of showbusiness.

    With hand on the heart we can call him "the man-voice". Nasko from BTR remains (thank God) from a clean image of the Bulgarian rock. On 8th of March Stara Zagora will meet BTR in club IL Mondo. But not with flowers and roses, with a strong dose of adrenaline and serotonin.

    A lot of people remained stunned when the Finnish hard rock monsters Lordi won the Eurovision 2006. But we have to admit it - they deserve the attention paid to them. The combination of horror costumes and heavy guitars is not something new, but they have perfected it to the last detail. The band is especially good when playing live. Just before their concert in Paris we called bass player Ox, who promised us that the Lordi spectacle in Sofia on 6 March will be terrific.
