“My Cosmos (Mahorka Reworks)”
MO., an artist who sings, composes, produces and releases wave and electronic music almost exclusively on his Invitro Independent Music label, a Depeche Mode addict from early age, also heavily hooked on all styles of dance, loving pop, listening to rock and totally into life after death, Love and Eternity, has been born (in the distant 1976), living and working in the town of Pleven, Bulgaria, somewhere in the countryside of Eastern Europe, just where the Mahorka netlabel happened to be headquartered. At the dawn of the new millenium, back in 2002, Mahorka had just appeared online as one of the first netlabel pioneers, while MO. released his debut single “Edinstven” (“Only”), which quickly became popular on all radio stations in Bulgaria. Pop diva Maria Ilieva took part in the project, and the remixes on the CD maxi single were produced by the already cult porno_BPM electro pioneers KiNK, SuB and Kei, as well as by the Nu Ages duo, Second Body (Emilian Gatsov) and alternative band SKRE4. After a four-year hiatus, MO. returned with the double maxi single “Loveblaster”, featuring an important bunch of names from his native Bulgarian underground scene such as COOH (Ivan Shopov), Kenogo a.k.a. Ogonek, Second Body, Music Sound Machine, DeckStarr, Paul Legend, Dope Buzz, Victor’s Mob and of course the biggest, today world famous in the dance music scene, KiNK – it was his remix of “Loveblaster” that became the first Bulgarian song broadcast on Fashion TV, as soundtrack to the documentary on the avant-garde designers of Bulgaria. The musical journey of MO. continued with “It’s No Good / All The Time In The World” (A Tribute To Depeche Mode) released in 2010 – a double EP with a downtempo chillout part one (mixes by Pixszels, Ghostwheel, Dope Buzz) and club mixes part two (Monophonique, Paul Legend, Dr. Scissors, DJ Smoke and Dope Buzz). Next up was the ‘Foe Foe’ project that came out in three separate EPs with remixes from Gravity Co., Diass, Alessandro, Anton Pau, FaAXA, Lu40, Help Me Jones, Protuberance, Monophonique and Phil O’Davidson. In 2017, in collaboration with Grooveman, MO. releaased the EP “Dirty”, also with a brutal remix by Charlie (Les Animaux Sauvages). 2018 is the year in which another collaboration with Lu40 followed, the single “Don’t” plus remix EP featuring Alexander Waltz, Alessandro, WildSoul.
Fast forward to 2021, Mahorka was going stronger than ever, including with the very special Netlabel Day collaborative reworks releases each year, while MO., an international popstar already, unveiled a new project with the producer Electrohollyc, premiering the hit single “My Cosmos”. Soonafter MO. and the Mahorka label boss Ivo Petrov were convinced that this is the track to get the Mahorka reworks treatment, a longstanding idea and dream of both of them, after 20 years of friendship and numerous common collaborators. A rollercoaster of killer reworks was assembled and released on Mahorka for Netlabel Day on 14.07.2022.
