DJ Optick

DJ Optick

Real name: Bogdan Moldovan

Date of birth: 0000-00-00

DJ Optick falls into the category - a man on a mission!

 

He has been literally shining, over the latest years, on the Romanian electronic music scene. Assuming his downright status of an artist, he constantly tried to overcome the limits of an imposed pattern in the dance music style. The branded Optick sound is radio-friendly and is guaranteed to take over any dance floor, it’s the perfect combination. 

The question is: What makes this particular character so special?

Let’s try and give an answer: the power of a sound that strikes each and every song, every production packed with soft tuneful lines, all these define an artist quite dedicated to the style of his choice.

DJ Optick was also the public’s choice for the latest Nights.ro Awards editions.

He is also one of the "usual suspects" blend-in for the great dance events, festivals, club gigs, performances held in front of a public varying from several hundreds to tens of thousands of people. Optick’s best feature will always be his mixing “style”, a true show that awarded him his immense popularity.

A colossal talent needs to burst out, create and get involved and this is exactly what Optick did. He got involved in different other projects, accompanying various electronic music producers, he pursued the Next Level Tour and he headlined the greatest events in the field of electronic music.

For Bogdan Moldovan, AKA DJ Optick, 1994 represented the year of self-discovery: he could entertain his crowd with his favorite music. He also added a new word to his vocabulary: perseverance. He ended up doing the warm-up for names like Tommy Serano and Azzido da Bass, Lee Burridge in Colors Club, 2001, Misja Helsloot  and Marc Van Dale  covering two Amsterdam Zone Party events in 2002, James Zabiela and Jan Carbon in La Mania Club, 2002, Satoshi Tomiie in 2002, John Creamer and Lee Burridge in 2003 (Hysteria Parties), Omid 16B in La Motor Club, Mamaia, 2004, Dj Tonka (Liberty Parade 2006), Paul van Dyk, Fatboy Slim, Satoshi Tomiie, Hernan Cattaneo, Nick Curly, Carl Kennedy, Dennis Ruyer, Anthony Collins, Audiojack, Simon Baker and many, many others..

 

 

In 2004 he made the top 3 Romanian DJs and during the following year he topped that, too. DJ Optick took home awards for several sections: The Best DJ, The best Romanian Electronic Production, The Best DJ Set (Liberty Parade). The Liberty Parade 2006 anthem, "Feel Good", went on air for the "Essential Selections", broadcast by Pete Tong, at BBC Radio 1."Feel Good" was officially released with Wasted Youth, Australia and Roton Music Romania.

It is also said that he is one of the Djs that makes his public love electronic music, go clubbing and appreciate a quality show. This passion and “impulse” materialized in the "Next Level”, a cosmopolite clubbing concept radio show, whose beats are as relevant today as they used to be at its launching.

The profusion of energy and sensation gave the Next Level radio show a special standing. Over time, the Next Level family has extended; newcomers, producers and well-known DJs have been discovered and promoted.

Starting with 2005, Optick began experimenting with musical production and he executed several remixes for Romanian artists like: Miki, Activ or Voltaj. Given the immediate success of the 2 Voltaj remixes, "Eu cu mine", made in collaboration with Avi, the Roton Disc House decided to launch them on CD and vinyl. 

There followed the partnership with one of the most appreciated Romanian producers, Ciprian Lemnaru, releasing “Maya” together (premiering on the Ibiza Global Radio). This particular piece stepped on the second place among the best Romanian electronic productions. 

All releases were received with standing ovations inside the electronic community and the most important representatives of the genre took over his tracks and inserted them in their own DJ sets. Radio stations included his pieces in heavy rotation, their hit-potential being made obvious by the ease of climbing the genre-charts.

As a DJ, Optick will overwhelm you with his DJ-ing style; you will find yourself experiencing a certain state of mind that can be “inflicted” only by a very talented DJ and you will take over the dance floor from one side to the other.

"The world is my inspiration. It’s a blessing to know that people are actually searching for underground parties, that they actually know how to assess the mood of an evening out, that they actually get the “club state of mind”. Everything around me helps me create my own sets”, says DJ Optick.

He makes music to let people know about his personal vision on club-sound.  Optick will always be associated with the image of the one that put his love for quality electronic music inside his CD case

DJ Optick was one of the favorites at the 2010 Nights.ro Awards. The public voted for him in several sections. Optick is seen among the third best Romanian DJs and his tracks mounted up to the maximum score. This is an artist that needs no introduction. It is said that a good DJ is the one that can guess his public’s expectations, knows how to move his public and is permanently connected to its mood. It seems that Optick has actually achieved all these criteria and this little detail positioned him in the first Romanian DJ’s League (second place).

 

Generally, it is very difficult to find the balance between being a great DJ and a talented producer, but when this balance comes through, you can call yourself a complete artist. The best musical production (of the electronic genre) in Romania, in 2009 designated its winners – Optick scores a double success with:

01. Vibers feat. Tara Mc Donald - Revolution

02. Optick & Ciprian Lemnaru - Maya (the premiere was on the 16th of October, 2009, during the “IBIZA DANCE" at the Ibiza Global Radio)

His achievement does not measure up to this point only; Optick proved to be sensational at any club gig he attended, the same as any important dance event. He took home the big award at the Best Romanian DJ Set for the performance given at the Liberty Parade 2009.

Probably the most important prize at the Nights.ro Gala was the one received for the Best Romanian Clubbing Radio Show in 2009.

"Next Level" is DJ Optick. When you decide to club party, you do this because you’re led by one thought only – DANCE DANCE DANCE – when you can turn 2 hours of radio broadcast in an absolute party, it becomes clear that you are addressing a clubbers’ community that shares the same passion - ELECTRONIC MUSIC.

"Next Level" is that particular detail making the difference in electronic music here and everywhere.
