Jay Bliss
Iulian​ ​began​ ​experimenting​ ​with​ ​production​ ​in​ ​the​ ​late​ ​‘90s​ ​while​ ​studying​ ​computer​ ​science. By​ ​2005​ ​he​ ​had​ ​started​ ​to​ ​take​ ​music​ ​production​ ​“seriously,”​ ​and​ ​his​ ​first​ ​release​ ​landed​ ​in​ ​2008 as​ ​Hermannstadt​ ​Collective​ ​—​ ​a​ ​collaboration​ ​with​ ​Mihai​ ​Popoviciu​ ​and​ ​ToyGUN.​ ​His​ ​debut​ ​solo EP​ ​landed​ ​soon​ ​thereafter​ ​on​ ​Smoke​ ​City​ ​Music,​ ​presenting​ ​Iulian’s​ ​deep​ ​and​ ​organic​ ​sound. Further​ ​releases​ ​have​ ​since​ ​arrived​ ​thick​ ​and​ ​fast,​ ​including​ ​a​ ​2012​ ​EP​ ​featuring​ ​a​ ​Petre Inspirescu​ ​remix​ ​and​ ​a​ ​2017​ ​LP​ ​titled​ ​‘Vrăjitorul​ ​din​ ​Orz.’​ ​The​ ​six-tracker​ ​was​ ​the​ ​result​ ​of​ ​a “production​ ​spree”​ ​inspired​ ​by​ ​a​ ​two-year​ ​spell​ ​during​ ​which​ ​Cazan​ ​sought​ ​fresh​ ​inspiration.​ ​“I just​ ​felt​ ​like​ ​I​ ​was​ ​doing​ ​the​ ​same​ ​thing​ ​over​ ​and​ ​over​ ​again,”​ ​he​ ​explains.​ ​His​ ​2016​ ​‘Paloșul’​ ​EP as​ ​Iovan​ ​Iorgovan​ ​was​ ​written​ ​around​ ​the​ ​same​ ​period.
Elsewhere,​ ​Iulian​ ​runs​ ​the​ ​Stomping​ ​Grounds​ ​label​ ​and​ ​the​ ​Vade​ ​Mecum​ ​sub-label.​ ​The​ ​former​ ​is focused​ ​on​ ​“timeless​ ​music,”​ ​hence​ ​it​ ​sees​ ​around​ ​only​ ​one​ ​release​ ​per​ ​year.​ ​In​ ​contrast,​ ​Vade Mecum​ ​is​ ​more​ ​dynamic​ ​and​ ​free-flowing.
