"Kraut nostalgia meets Nintendo"
Minus is Daniel Stanciu, a 21 year-old Constanta-born computer science student. He’s been making tracks for a few years, trying to focus on the emotional aspect of music rather than on its technical side. Style ranges from 8-bit and old school-electro to dub, downtempo and ambient music with vague references to math, fuzzy childhood memories and old video games. Minus has recently released an EP on the Romanian netlabel Arhiva7 and is currently working on two more. He performed live at already quite some festivals : TMBase (Timisoara), Rokolectiv (Bucharest), Wilsonic (Bratislava), Today’s Art (The Hague) and Numusic (Norway).
Minus has recently joined up the Romanian bass and keyboard player Ion Dumitrescu for a live show that blissfully confronts Nintendo cheap tunes to kraut nostalgia.
