Blaž – Gangsta Angel (album Steven; Beton Records, 2018)
Blaž is a producer hailing from the seaside region of Slovenia who has become known as the “wonderkid of slovenian experimental beatmaking”. He started making music at a young age and with his dense, eclectic musical style he quickly became one of the most unique sounding artists of the second Slovenian beatmaking spring. He is a collaborator of N’Toko, he released his albums on the Beton record label ran by the Radio Študent collaborator and one of the icons of the slovenian hip-hop movement Jizah DaFunk. Blaž encountered a short setback in his career after developing tinitus, a condition connected to being exposed to excessive amounts of loud music, which sparked his career in writing. Blaž wrote a novel titled Tat Not and also started creating visual art. He returned to music with his critically acclaimed album Steven from 2018.
