Ivo

Hey there!

I'm Ivo. Originally from Bulgaria, I had the chance to spend a fair share of my life abroad. I've lived in USA, the Netherlands, Spain and currently - Germany where I work in digital/design and in my free time I try to find that next track.

Occasional drummer, The Office nerd, ice cream, cheese. That kind of stuff, you know? By the way if you happen to be in Berlin - drop a line and let's have a beer!

It's overwhelmingly amazing how fast the project and team are growing. Just a few years back it was just a simple personal blog and nowadays we have more than 25 members from 5 different continents. Plus, I get to do this with my friends - things cannot get any better!

Not that I don't have a social life, but I'm online quite a lot so feel free to talk to me at ivo@stereofox.com, or drop by himynameisivo. Cheers!

Anna

Hey, I am Anna. I was born and raised in Russia, but I'm currently living and studying in the Netherlands. I'm one of those boring business kids in suits busy with budgets, but I always have time for something new and funny, traveling around the world, exploring. The decision to join Stereofox was pretty random, but I love it. I couldn't miss the chance to discover new music with the rest of the guys and share new awesomeness that I find every day.

I'll listen to pretty much anything with good vibes and my preferences change a lot over time. Few of my favourite artists are Beirut, Bon Iver, Ben Howard, Familjen, Hot Chip, Bloc Party, Caribou. I could go on forever. Feel free to drop me a line at anna@stereofox.com

Peter

Hey, I'm Peter!

I'm from Plovdiv, Bulgaria but now I live in the city of Sofia. I'm old but my teen spirit is still alive and kicking filled with passion for new music. Punk Rock has always been my best friend, so I'm glad I have the opportunity to show you just how good it is.

Add me on whaterver social media you like or write me at peter@stereofox.com

Marisa

Hello music lovers! I’m Marisa, a writer and photographer living in Colorado. I love to explore and surround myself with beauty, and music is no exception. Happiest when immersed in nature, all I need is a camera in my hand and headphones on my ears, although the camera is often interchangeable for a cold beer or margarita.

As for music, my favorites are usually indie pop/rock/folk, but I appreciate all quality music, regardless of genre. Unfortunately, I don't play any instruments, but I can sing, and do all the time... I just wish I was good at it 😉

Currently my contribution to music is celebrating it. For me, it's as essential as breathing. All I want from life is to be moved by people, places, things and experiences. That's what music does for me and that's why Stereofox is so special. It's a way to discover new music and share its unique experience with others around the world. I'm unbelievably excited to be a part of this project and share my passion and appreciation for music and the talented artists who contribute to it. You can say hello at Marisa@stereofox.com!

Iva

Hey! I am Iva. From Plovdiv, Bulgaria. That's a pretty small town with nothing much to do but listening to music. And that's what I've been doing since I can remember myself. Music is not only a passion, it is a feeling, a form of change. Discovering new music is finding a new experience and sharing this with other people is what Stereofox is all about. That is why I am incredibly excited to be a part of this project. You can say "Hi!" at iva@stereofox.com!

Alex

My name is Aleksander Cerulean and I am currently living and working in Malmö, Sweden. I feel that I have split my creative part in way too many parts and as a result I cannot fully develop and improve them as I wish.

My interests are various and include such topics as photography, music, writing, tattoos, 3D graphics, sustainable development, social change; just to name few. By joining Stereofox I will be able to work on two things I love - writing and music. First, writing is a special and personal experience to me and improving this skill of mine I can only feel joy as I enrich my vocabulary day by day. Second, I know that music and lyrics have profound effect on peoples' behavior and can be a catalyst for a change on both individual and social level. Quality music regardless of genre is a permanent part of my life.

You can reach me at alex@stereofox.com

Jordan

Hey! My name is Jordan and I come from the States (South Carolina) and music is my life. I come home every day from school and check what happened in the world of music that day. I love sharing my finds on my personal music Tumblr - indiexmusic, and with my dad, one of my biggest supporters. Outside of music, I also enjoy photography, gaming, shopping, and reading. You can say hi at jordan@stereofox.com!

Jemma

Hello folks!

Great to e-meet you, so a little bit about me, I was born in Zimbabwe, grew up in Malawi and then moved when I was fourteen to live briefly in Germany, Switzerland and the UK. Moving around and travelling has massively influenced me, and most importantly my music tastes, so can´t really complain. I am now currently based in Berlin and have never been more pleased with a life-decision!

I have always been super passionate about music but I have no rhythm, so being a musician - it was actually a dream once upon a time - is not really an option... so those who can´t make music, work in music, right?


I cannot wait to share all my musical gems with you, and discover a ton of music too! Also, please feel free to get in touch with me about anything, even if it´s just to have a chat ?

Staff

Hi. We are Stereofox.

Boris

I’m Boris, responsible for the UI/UX part of the website. I am 25 and I’ve spent half of my life designing, drawing, programming, eating and cursing at things and working as a graphic designer, photographer, art director, cook, dishwasher, musician and an astronaut.

Current goals - terrace over the sea, travel another 20 000 km, do more couchsurfing, get a new guitar, make Stereofox a bit better every day. If you think you can help me with any of this, or you have an idea of something better I can do with my life, drop me a line at borismihov@gmail.com I also have a useless website with some nice pictures in it.

Gery

Hey there, I'm Gery. I work as an illustrator in Sofia, Bulgaria and enjoy every second of it. I love to travel so my big, big plan is to live all around the world for a few months at a time and sleep on your couch from time to time.

I'm obsessed with drawing, my dog, comic books, tattoos, good food and all the animals and all the nature in the world! And I don’t do anything without music. Seriously, can’t function without a “life soundtrack”. I do listen to all kinds of music styles, have a soft spot for live shows and will probably be deaf by the age of 50 because of my addiction to headphones… So talk to me while I can still hear you at g.stancheva@gmail.com or Dribbble

Mark

Hi, I'm Mark. I live in Brighton, UK and have a huge passion for finding and supporting new music. Outside of writing for Stereofox, I write a music blog called musicalramble.

If you think we have a similar taste in music or want to get in touch about having your band featured on the site, send an email to mark@stereofox.com!

Colin

Hi! I'm Colin and I come from London and I'm a self-confessed music nut. Some would say that I'm musically confused, rather than be bound by genres, I try to traverse the entire musical landscape whether it be electronic, hip hop, jazz, folk, alternative and more besides. Having relocated to Barcelona in 2013 due to my wife's job, I took a break from work and having toyed with the idea for sometime i decided to start my own music blog.

My blog took its first steps in late 2013 and my remit was simply to explore new music beyond the mainstream. I'ts been an amazing time and to be involved with music on a daily basis in this way has opened my ears even further by discovering new artist from all over the world.
When Alex got in touch with me and asked if i would be interested in joining the Stereofox family, i immediately went to their view website and browsed for a while, then a bit longer, my interest was piqued. The ethos of Stereofox is one that definitely appeals to me, building a community and engaging with like-minded people all over the world who all share a passion for good music.
I'm really looking forward to being part of the team and sharing my discoveries with you. Enjoy the music and keep supporting the artist. If you want to get in touch feel free to drop me a line colin@stereofox.com or via my social networks.

Thomas

Hey! I am Thomas and I started DJ-ing in 2006 with drum&bass and working for a drum&bass magazine aside. Then moved to lower Bavaria and came in touch with the world of ambient & electronica. I started my monthly radio show "Polarlichter" it is now running on Berlin-based webagenda BLN.FM. Here and there you can find me behind the DJ booth in Berlin.

Noemie

Hey Foxes, I’m Noémie!
I’m living in Paris, where I’m studying Communication. I’m a traveler and a music lover. I aim at promoting music because I believe that music is meant to be shared. What’s a best start than writing for Stereofox and share my music crushes with you?!
I’m pretty versatile when it comes to music genres: electronic, chillwave, alt-pop, hip-hop, folk… But somehow I always end up going back to the roots: rock’n’roll. For the moment, I’m into experimental stuff and a huge fan of Slow Magic, Shigeto, and Breton.
If you’re not bored with me yet and you can read French, you can follow me on my personal blog

Tigran

Yo Stereofox people, my name is Tigran. I am a young student living in Brussels. I am a bit of a music head, from creating and managing a music blog as a teen to djaying and producing later on in my life.

My other interests are travelling, fashion, photography, sneakers, sociology, art and languages. There's something about that feeling when you share music that I really enjoy and makes me happy.

Also, I am always on the lookout for tracks, any genre, as long as their special. If you wanna check more out, send tracks, are in Brussels, or anything else hit me up!

Mike

Hey, I’m Mike. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania—a town known for steel, sports, and good beer. I moved to beautiful Berlin, Germany shortly after completing my Bachelor's degree where I'm currently absorbing and spreading The Funk

Zuli

Hey guys, I'm Zuli.

I'm from Malaysia. I've always been a film and music junkie. It's actually essential for me to bring headphones wherever I go. I'm not picky about genres, if it's got a sick beat I'll probably vibe with it.

Eme

Hey I'm Eme!

Currently situated in Berlin where I spend most of my time dancing with friends and cycling around. I'm always keen on a good laugh. I love finding and sharing music so enjoy my curated picks!

Blessing

Hey guys,

I'm Blessing, ha yep really that’s my name! At the moment, I’m in Frankfurt but actually live in London and Brighton. Music is everything. To me, life is felt through music. When I’m back in London, I have my own little radio show; it’s my hour of fun, mixing, playing new music and giving artists a chance to be heard. I play anything from electro, trip-hop and post-dub. I love sharing music and letting people know what undiscovered gems are out there. Unbiased: Stereofox is one the best platforms for this. Accessible to all. No pretentiousness, no elitism no music snobbism. Just music lovers sharing the love.

Wanna get in contact? Just drop me a line. I’ll be sure to write back!

Peace x

Nathan

Originally from the UK, where I most recently lived in the amazing city of Brighton & Hove. Nowadays, you’ll find me in Berlin.

Music has been my obsession from as far back as I can remember. I love nothing more than discovering new music that I really connect with, and equally having the opportunity to introduce others to music that I think they will really like.

I’ve also been collecting vinyl for half of my life now and have incredible memories of spending hours upon hours digging through crates of records in old music stores around Soho, in London. For me, good music, is good music, irrespective of genre.

Georgi

Hey there!

I'm Georgi, originally from Bulgaria, but currently based in "the smartest city in the world" - Eindhoven, NL! There I study for a Masters degree in robotics engineering. All that science has to be balanced out however, and that's where my passion with music plays an important role.

My taste in music ranges from rock to soul and jazz, rap and ends with everything that was released earlier today. I mainly consider my self a hip-hop head with an endless desire to dig up some funky production and ponder over clever lyrics. As a technology nerd, I also appreciate electronic music in all its variations, especially its fusion with already established genres. You can find me often getting lost in soundcloud or bandcamp discovering music and trying to get people to listen to it! That was my main reason for joining Stereofox, as sharing a track an seeing the joy it brings to people gives me the most pleasure in this world.

On the side, I love slacklining, basketball and skiing so you will find me doing something outside each season. I hope you enjoy my posts and if you feel like dropping a line and saying what's up you can find me at georgi@stereofox.com

Cheers

Nasko

Hi there! I'm Nasko. Born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, graduated Journalism in Sofia University. I currently run a film-making business in Sofia.

I enjoy music for as long as I can remember. I often change directions, varying from electronic to jazz and soul to metal and hardcore, but mainly new-school stuff. I love singing, but I don’t think I have the qualities to be a musician. However, I have always seen music as a passion, as something way more than just beats, melody and lyrics. And this is exactly why I am part of Stereofox – a great way to share with people good music and those new discoveries I don’t even know how I managed to find.

Apart from music, I am really keen on photography, traveling, biking and craft beer. I’d love to chat about anything, so don’t hesitate to write me on nasko@stereofox.com.

Darius

I am Darius and I code things.

Lela

Hey there! My name is Lela and I come from the desert of southern Arizona. I spend most of my time creating ambient induced day dream and trying to find new sounds, especially those that can accompany me on my travels.

Lora

Hello, my name is Lora. I've been reveling in the expansive music scene of Berlin (and the city itself) for the last three years, after moving from London and originally from Bulgaria.

I usually express my mind through writing but in the past few months have started a new form of diaries - mixtapes. They are a record of overflowing experiences and mind journeys, but most importantly help me discover new artists and share their music. I'm looking forward to be introducing some of them to the Stereofox community.

Lu

I'm Lulibo, although I go by Lu. Ever since high school I've been on a search for different sounds, and it helps coming from such a creative city such as Cape Town. When I'm not writing gripping articles about music or hounding for new sounds, I spend my time studying psychology in university and making Trip Hop/Ambient music under the moniker Skai Lounge. Recently I've also started a YouTube series called The Music That Made, which is basically a Genius but for South African artist. Genres such as Psych Rock, Indie, Chillwave and Alt Hip Hop tend to grab my attention.

Simone

My name is Simone Bertolini aka Simber. I am a 24 year producer from Palermo, Italy. I started singing when I was young and from then I discovered my passion for music. I have been producing more than 8 years and i have shown passion and enthusiasm for vintage music since my early teenage years. I am excited to join the Stereofox team and support the chillhop community here.

Mira

Hey there! Most people know me as Mira and sometimes even some of my closest friends forget that my full name is Miroslava. I live in Sofia, Bulgaria and I’ve been writing articles for various events at a local online music media since 2011. I’m into swing dancing since 2013, but I don’t really listen to that kind of music often when at home. Аctually, I’ve never limited myself by genres but lately I enjoy jazz, soul, r&b, funk and hip hop more than others. In my free time you would probably find me cooking, while having “Friends” on the background and trying to keep my crazy cat away from the food. I don’t drink coffee, I prefer tea… or wine, sometimes gin&tonic. I also like having some music while taking a shower, it’s an absolute pleasure – the acoustic is great in the bathroom and the sound kind of makes sense in combination with the running water. I’ve always been fascinated by the way words can affect people and one of my personal leitmotifs is “Be careful and take care of the words the way you want them to treat you”. I’m really glad that no matter what job I’ve had, who I’ve been with, what has been happening, I’ve always had this perfect duo – writing and music – by my side.

Rob

My name’s Rob, a UK-based producer, graphic artist and chill music fan. Some people might know me as “Kori”; I’ve been making piano-based garage/downtempo/orchestral music under the alias for about 3 years now. Finding, listening to and sharing music is something I’ve always loved; it’s nice to have a platform to do so where people won’t get bored of me constantly going on about it!

Aaron

Musician, writer, and all-out music nerd. I still consider myself emo, despite being in my thirties... And the bass is an underrated instrument. I tend to become a comedian when writing about myself... :/

Hris

Hey there! I'm Hristina, a former New Yorker, briefly a Parisian but originally from Bulgaria. I'm a compulsive traveler, anthropology and photography enthusiast, an SEO nerd. You can catch me writing, doing yoga, trekking up the closest mountain, and listening to music that enhances all of the above.

Andrea

I'm Andrea, an NYC-based live music addict and bonafide nocturnal animal. A lover of chill beats, dark beats, and everything in between, I've spent my whole life pursuing the thrill that comes with discovering my new favorite song.

THE STORY

Hey guys! Thank you for stopping by and checking who we are. We decided to tell you our story as it happened and despite the fact that we will probably never meet most of you, we hope at the end of these paragraphs you perceive us as your friends.

We started Stereofox in June 2012 after ups and downs of a blog Ivo was running at the time. The mission was to create something meaningful. After a few messages, we had a logo and the brainstorming began.

Throughout this initial stage we managed to find more and more enthusiasts and before we realized, we quickly reached 15 international members just before our launch in February 2013.

As the development advanced, we decided to add more features and things skewed towards creating something which we couldn't really fit into any category. We wanted to put our marketing, copywriting and technical skills & knowledge into practice while keep having fun. By that time Juan came in and pushed our Media section - in-house made videos and galleries shot by some of the most awesome people ever!

We had no idea whether this would work out and how long could we really "keep" the passion for music, but as it turned out - the feeling of being part of this project was even more awesome than most of us could imagine. That's why we came up with the idea of Stereofox 2.0.

Of course nothing of what you see today wouldn't be possible without our community. We made a crowd-funding which gave us the resources to create what you see today. Where are we now? We don't know ourselves. We want to grow and keep doing what we love the most - write about music! We hope you enjoy this website and the music we share.

Special thanks to Dora who made the original Stereofox design and Sam, Gio, Sandra & Ayo for their amazing content contributions!
