Every party has a distinctive vibe. Every club has a certain atmosphere. Every electronic music organization have a specific attitude towards running their events. Not many promoters on the Bulgarian clubbing scene have managed to develop a successful brand. But there is one creative collective in Sofia that keep on delivering every time they throw a party – Elevate.

Since their formation in 2006, Elevate have brought a number of famous DJs to play in Bulgaria for the first time. From Eric Prydz in 2007 to tINI in 2011, they organized many memorable parties, which have helped them build a following. When you win the faith of the clubbers as a promoter, you are free to experiment and take your brand to the next level – a step Elevate made when they decided to invite Maceo Plex in Sofia... you guessed it, for the first time.

The party in Yalta club started slowly with Nick Nikolov, one of Elevate’s resident DJs, opening up the night. For a young DJ that he is, Nick showed maturity behind the decks. He played more than two hours and managed to build up the atmosphere without peaking too much. The crowd certainly loved his approach and cheered him a couple of times. As soon as Maceo Plex appeared on the DJ booth in front of us, everyone went crazy. He raised the tempo a bit and took us on a music trip.

Eric Estornel is an artist with many faces. He is widely recognized for his house music productions under Maceo Plex and praised about his techno oriented alias Maetrik. When he is DJing as Maceo Plex though you could hear everything – from soulful vocals and funky house rhythms to tough techno beats with twisted melodies and sounds from out of this world. The music he played in Yalta club for over two hours was gentle yet intensive and somehow reminded us to the aforementioned Eric Prydz’s gig at the club in July 2007.

Maceo Plex’s first appearance at Yalta club was a treat to the crowd. We hope that Elevate will invite him back and give us the chance to hear more from the versatile DJ.
