You know him from DAYO, from his latest album Run and from Sofia Beats.
Trombobby is one of the reasons I'm in love with jazzy music, trombone and brass instruments in general. And definitely one of the reasons the beat scene in Bulgaria is progressing.
We've met back in 2013 and I'm really happy we finally got to talk here on Stereofox.

Hey, man, nice to have you here! So, tell us, why 'Trombobby'?
My name is Bojidar, actually. My parents used to call me Bobby, so few years after I started playing the trombone - Trombobby turned out just fine.
We're loving the mix you crafted for us. How did you select the songs for it?
I came home from a Sofar session and tried to capture my mood for the last month.
You've been doing music for quite some time - we know you far back from Southwick. How did you get involved with music in the first place?
I was a strange kid and nothing could keep me interested until I started singing in a vocal group. This was when I was 8 years old, the next year I started playing the trombone and when I was 10 I got into the National School of Music in Sofia.
Where do you get your inspiration from?
I get inspired by all the things that happen in my life. Loved ones, friends, places, books, movies, other artists, etc.
DAYO was one of the first beats/instrumental hip-hop bands in Bulgaria and kinda set a scene for such genres, which was awesome! How did you come up with this project?
There was this jam session, 3 years ago, when Vassil Voutev called me. We knew each other but never played together. We enjoyed the music that happened that night so we wanted to do it again. This time we were joined by Evden Dimitrov and decided that we’ll start arranging our beats for a live act. Rawland was supposed to DJ before and after our set but he really liked our music and started scratching. This is how the mothership was created.
And finally, tell us a bit more about Sofia Beats and what's next.
The next Sofia Beats event is going to be massive. One of the finest producers out here Boyan Music is putting out his new EP thru Sofia Beats, so this is going to be the 3rd release since the label formed in November. 1000 names will also be there with a killer set, Low Heat will make a live set, playing his own beats and the SoundSupreme founder Jay Scarlett will be our last guest. The event is going to be on the 25th of May in club Mixtape 5*.
