TOTD // 27/07 // Borusiade

Published: July 27, 2017, words by John Carter

Miruna Boruzescu, or Borusiade (as her friends like to call her and the name she’s taken for her musical artistry of recent years), was born and raised in Bucharest, Romania but now resides in the creative hub of Berlin. She has been DJing since 2002 and making music for over ten years, however her productions hadn’t seen the light of day until 2016.

Borusiade’s first musical love was classical. For twelve years from the age of six she sung in a professional children’s choir that performed a wide variety of early and contemporary classical music with orchestras at festivals and whilst touring. Although now dedicated to the world of dance music, it’s these formative years that still provide Borusiade with the majority of inspiration in her music production and DJing. You’d think this is a giant leap in musical taste, however, refreshingly, she tells Share The Platform in April 2015 that there shouldn’t be so much separation between genres. “For me music is music, be it classical or electronic. It has a certain impact on me or I have an urge to create a certain track. When I say electronic music it’s because the tools I use are mostly electronic but in the end it’s just music. It doesn’t matter if it has classical instruments or raw synthesizers.”

In 2015 Borusiade joined Cómeme, starting “The Dreamcatcher” series on the label’s radio show. Here, she found herself at home with the label’s family feel. It wasn’t long after that Cómeme released her debut EP, Jeapody, in 2016, a five-track selection of dark, low-slung electro and EBM fitting perfectly with the label’s catalogue.

Borusiade’s sophomore came naturally and soon after. With an EP of tracks ready for release, she told Matias Aguayo of Kompakt that her top label to release on other than Cómeme would be Jennifer Cardini’s Correspondant. Matias called Jennifer, she loved the tracks and Feelings Of Entropy was confirmed. Once again, Borusiade impressed with a full EP of emotive, body-moving electro.

To celebrate her connection with Correspondant, Borusiade joins us in our week dedicated to the label. Here, she shares four highly influential tracks in crafting her musical taste for the dancefloor.

Beat

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Happy

  • Melancholic

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

  • Wonky

“Chris Carter and all that he stands for musically is a major, continuous influence on my musical development (Throbbing Gristle, Chris & Cosey, Carter Tutti Void, Chris Carter himself…) This track in particular sounds to me like a brilliantly successful experiment. The structure is simple and obsessive – it feels like Carter tried out a new sound and played around with it. This acid loop can go on forever and ever, it will always sound suspense-full yet soothing.”

Legowelt

Against The World

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Happy

  • Melancholic

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

  • Wonky

“I have a soft spot for the classic sound of Electro – especially the Bunker sound – and this track from Legowelt pretty much sums up what I mean. It is highly melodic and encompasses probably all the possible clichés of Electro and that is what makes it so amazing – playful yet complex. I love the way it travels through harmonies. To me that triggers an uplifting feeling that requires an excess of listens.”

Anne Clark

Our Darkness

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Happy

  • Melancholic

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

  • Wonky

““Do you think our desires still burn / I guess it was desires that tore us apart / There has to be passion / A passion for living, surviving / And that means detachment”. Anne Clark’s voice always sounds prophetic over waves of electronic beats and arpeggios – it is a voice that always leads the psyche and the body into this trance-like state. When I hear this song it makes me feel like I have to dance for my life; it is like this connection with a crowd of people on a dancefloor is the last resort of inter-human connection in this dark world and Anne’s deadpan vocals are leading to it.”

Take Care

  • Calm

  • Energetic

  • Euphoric

  • Happy

  • Melancholic

  • Nostalgic

  • Tense

  • Wonky

“This track was probably my passport to the clubbing world. Before this track I was finding the whole clubbing thing pretty much vain and was not really getting why big crowds can go nuts on repetitive beats. I always felt that there must be more to it and I was right because I discovered music that had so much more to offer. I came across a whole scene of interesting producers, women producers in this case, that did the kind of sound that resonated to my senses in a way in which I thought – I could give it a try… I should give it a try.”
