Year of Emotions Packed in Boyan's Genre-Bending EP Closure

Boyan is a producer, DJ and radio-host hailing from Bulgaria’s capital Sofia. With more than 1M plays across all major DSPs in just the last 12 months alone, the producer saw support by both official editors (2 times feature in Apple Music’s BEATstrumentals) and independent curators like Indie Shuffle, Sidekick, College Music, The Jazzhop Cafe, Chill Beats Music, freshgoodies and Hip Dozer.

Closure is a centerpiece in the sonic universe he has been creating since joining the Stereofox Records family. A micro-cosmos within, the genre-bending 5-track EP follows a series of events and spans beyond the borders of sound. The producer uses the release to share his story and the flow of emotions that have been building up since the start of last year.

Besides the digital release which comes with a radio promotion and social advertising, Boyan alongside the creative team of Stereofox, has planned his first-ever vinyl pressing, a limited merch drop, and a release party. All of that designed to enhance the experience of Closure.

Because this is very intimate and personal release, this is the storyline written by Boyan for anyone who wants to truly submerge into the world of the EP.

00:00 – I Know


You are standing in the living room, watching the news. Lockdown is underway, and anxiety is in the air. Reaching your friends seems impossible and you get tired of hearing the phone’s endless ringing tone. Chasing that desire of getting a breath of fresh air you end up going outside on your own. It’s a ghost town. Suddenly you feel the urge to be around a loved one, so you hurry back home. You go to bed feeling lost and uneasy.


04:00 – Luminous

You wake up. It’s a cold, but sunny morning and you feel good. You get behind the laptop and start riding the creative wave. It has been a while, but today you feel like there’s nothing that can stop you. Ideas keep flowing, and you can’t take the smile off your face. Today is one of those days where you end up dancing and vibing to the music around you.


07:48 – Why Not (ft Finnoh)

Ever since this happened, turning on the TV first thing in the morning has become a habit. The news just started. Things aren’t getting any better. People across the world are locked inside their homes and left without a job on the brink of poverty, but a select few keep piling in more wealth. Yeah, why not? Coronavirus unemployment numbers are staggering. People are on the edge and division is at all-time high, but the media keeps talking about a new Instagram trend or some other nonrelevant bullshit or where and how rich people ‘escape’ the Pandemic.

Sure, why not?

11:20 – Turn Back Time

It’s time to turn off the TV and lay down. You close your eyes and space out. Calmness starts to fill your mind and you realize that the only thing you have control over is your own behavior. The smallest change towards something positive will have a ripple effect on those around you. The collective starts with the individual.

You hear the sound of strings building up a melody in your head. You feel goosebumps and open your eyes. A charge of energy overtakes your whole body.

15:05 – Sense Of Finality (Epilogue)

Happiness is watching the sunset on a hilltop far away from the city with your loved one right next to you. The sun is slowly fading away behind the mountain tops and you’ve reached your end destination – peace. This shared moment together is the most important thing in the world right now. You embrace the serenity which comes with the realization that whatever trouble comes your way, it will inevitably pass.

18:08 – You open your eyes. This is closure.

After building our Stereofox community and supporting artists for over 8 years, starting this label felt like the next logical step and the last missing piece of the puzzle.

We want to follow the same principles of professionalism and integrity we follow when writing features or working with artists. We always put their needs and interests first. We are proud of what we do, and we do it with a positive mindset.

We started Stereofox because of our love for music, eagerness to learn, and the joy of helping others. These things are still in motion and we’re excited to continue our path with the label.

We hope you enjoy the projects we put out and the artists we support. There are tons of talented musicians out there and we're beyond happy to be part of their journey and help them whether that's through the label or on our website.
