Welcome KiNK!

KiNK or Strahil Velchev as is his real name, developed his own way of making music in the nineties, living in Bulgaria, without access to the nice technology we have now at our disposal. Starting from scratch, he developed his skills, taking a somewhat different approach to making and playing dance music.Using object oriented programming software with a tracker, he only later switched to Ableton Live, at first only for studio use.

About ten years ago he teamed up with Neville Watson, and they released some very popular tracks on the Rush Hour label, like "Inside Out" and "Full Flight"

Current releases include:
Sven Vath - Accident in Paradise (KiNK remix) on Cocoon label

Upcoming - KiNK - Valentine`s Groove on Clone / Royal Oak

It's his dynamic live sets that really grabbed the attention of the dance crowd, and have catapulted him to the #1 spot on the Resident Advisor's poll in 2015.
He uses a small setup of machines and controllers on stage, to produce a varied performance:

In his studio at home he's assembled a eurorack modular synth, to use (next to other gear) in his productions.
With a friend he's started a project to manufacture a hardware random pattern generator, that puts out MIDI and CV.

Because of KiNK's busy scedule this Q&A will run from next sunday the 8th until the 19th of may.
You can start putting in your questions today, so we can collect these and present them.

Welcome KiNK!
