A GAME OF ACTION AND REACTION BETWEEN DRUMS AND KEYBOARDS!!!!!

Karpov not Kasparov LIVE (Romania)

Valeriu Borcos and Eduard Gabia are Karpov not Kasparov, a musical game of chess between synthesizers and drums. Beginning in Bucharest in 2009, the duo soon incorporated an analogue visual artist and contemporary dancers into their live performances, resulting in a theatrical show and a kind of real-time soundtrack to the action around them. The duo’s unique dynamic creates a psychedelic synth-driven sound, combining oriental melodies with the drive of a full live drum kit.

Debut LP “Soundtrack for a Game of Chess” has been nominated ‘album of the month’ by Vice Magazine, declared one of the most valuable releases of the year by Radio Romania Cultural and Radio Europa Libera and aired online on New York radio WFMU. In 2015 this LP was pressed on vinyl at the boutique label PolychromeSounds (Berlin).

The following album – The Vocal Edits (2016) is the most synth-pop
and dancefloor friendly to date and was released at the jazz label
FiverHouse records. The album was featured in Tsugi.fr magazine,
declared Best Romanian Electronic Release of 2016 by Scena9.ro and stamped “probably the best Romanian album of its genre in the last 30 years” by the jurnalists of musical blog Muzici&Faze.
