Artist Spotlight – Soundopamine


Hailing from Bucharest in Romania, Soundopamine are a rising talent catching the attention of some big names in the industry.  With early support for their latest EP from the likes of Fouk (Outlplay records) and Osunlade, Soundopamine are definitely one to watch.

Not only have they spent time crafting a unique sound that is seasoned with jazzy chords and tribal rhythms, their live set is a full visual and auditory experience involving vocals, keyboards, woodwinds and drum machines that will keep you dancing all night. These live sets are part of a bigger concept that is showcased through their event ” Sinestezie” which aims to create a unique experience by combining art and sound in order to take the audience to a new paradigm. 

Their sound is influenced by artists such as Chez Damier, Theo Parrish, Moodymann,Faithless, MoonBoots and Nicolas Jaar. Their latest EP entitled “Jupiter Wild” is a collection of occurrences and sensations that Soundopamine experience in everyday life and is inspired by a muse that they refer to as Jupiter. The theory of the muse was popularised in Greek Mythology and is still one that many artists refer to today. The muse was known as a Goddess that artists, writers and academics drew their inspiration from and the concept still rings true for a lot of artist today who often find it difficult to pinpoint exactly where an idea or thought has come from.

The next Sinestezie event will be held in Bucharest on October 10th, full details can be found here:

Soundopamine are led by Cristian Munteanu and Roman Botnari with vocals from Ntsh. Their live sets feature additional elements and voices from Simona, Yarra and woodwinds from Stefan Diaconu. You will find Soundopamine playing at a variety of events throughout Eastern Europe but their favourite places to play are festivals, pool parties, rooftop sessions and anywhere they can take their audience on a journey from sunset until sunrise.
