Bolis Pupul

Bolis Pupul is the pseudonym of Flemish producer and multi-instrumentalist Boris Zeebroek. He was raised in Ghent as the child of a Belgian father and mother from Hong Kong. He released his first EP in 2016 through DEEWEE, the Ghent brothers Dewaele gourmet label (Soulwax / 2manydjs). These same brothers paired him with singer Charlotte Adigéry, with whom he released the joint success album “Topical Dancer” in 2022 and broke through internationally. Bolis Pupul's unique sound as a producer and musician is recognizable by thousands. With several classic analogue synthesizers, he creates a balanced but danceable sound, which sometimes sounds subdued and exuberant. In his music you can recognize influences from Belgian New Beat and synthpop from the 1980s, Detroit techno, Chicago house and contemporary experimental electronic music.

Letter To Yu

This year is marked for Bolis Pupul with the release of his solo debut album 'Letter To Yu'. On 'Topical Dancer' he explored themes of xenophobia and misogyny with Charlotte Adigéry, Pupul focuses on a more personal journey with his solo work. The album is an ode to his mother, who died in 2008, and Hong Kong. Alternating between energetic club tracks and quieter, reflective moments, the record features sampled sounds recorded on the streets of Hong Kong. The album also features both his mother and his sister Sarah.
