Konstantinos Budolas also know as “Bu$$” was born in Thessaloniki, Greece. Now Thessaloniki might not be the first place that comes to mind when speaking about Techno, but at the end of the 90′s names like Derrick May, Kevin Sauderson, Jeff Mills and Adam Beyer visited the city regularly and along with local techno DJs Dim DJ & Pici, inspired a whole new generation with electronic music. When Costa visited Fabric, The End, the Lost Parties & Velvet Rooms in London during 2001, he decided to move to London the very next year, where he also started collecting vinyl.
After finishing his studies, he founded the deep house & techno imprint Bliq Records along with good friend Manos Mara. The labels focuses in supporting mostly new & upcoming talents combined with remixes from underground artists like XDB , Fred P , Conforce,Thor, Nicuri etc and with 14 releases already the label is already in the Top 100.His dj sets are a combination of many genres that he explores and supports but in a way that everything connects each other in a deep spacey way .
Staying true to the heritage of electronic music Bliq tries to maintains a low profile and focus on the music rather than advertisement and promotion. The releases are in vinyl only, in attempt to support the original medium used by DJs.
He also co-runs Olympos .
In Ancient Greek Mythology, Olympos was the living place of the Twelve Olympian Gods and has inspired our limited series record label under the same name.
Olympos, will release a series of Eps , with the figure of an Olympian God, from various artists which will remain unannounced until the project is complete.
