Gabriella Vergilov announces new label GAMA with four-track techno EP ‘I Woke Up Happy’

Gabriella Vergilov is a Bulgarian DJ, producer, and singer based in Copenhagen, where she is a regular at Culture Box. Having released on Ben Sims’ SymbolismDustin Zahn’s Enemy Records and many more, Vergilov now announces her latest EP, ‘I Woke Up Happy’, arriving via her new GAMA label this September.

Across the imprint’s debut release, Vergilov twists her vocals into the sounds of traditional house and techno to form something entirely her own. The title track ‘I Woke Up Happy’ combines squelchy acid lines, pounding kicks, and trippy vocals, before ‘The Choices We Make’ sees subdued percussion and plucky synths form the basis for a monologue combining spoken and sung lyrics.

The third track, ‘The Force of The Rabbit’, brings a fun and twisted afterhours-friendly production to the table, followed by the closing track ‘Nyama Znachenie’. Translating to ‘It Doesn’t Matter’ in Bulgarian, the wonky FX and rolling 4/4 pattern make for a fitting closer to the debut EP on GAMA.

Created and curated by Gabriella Vergilov and Mads Lerager, aka BRAVERGAMA is a new Bulgarian-Danish label. Primarily, but not exclusively, focused on releasing their own productions, the label offers the duo an outlet for self-exploration within house, techno and beyond.
