Born in Sofia, Hristo Ivanov a.k.a. JackRock began his career in 1996 during the “dark ages” of the Bulgarian techno scene. He has since become an internationally recognised producer and DJ as well as driving force behind the techno label “Renesanz”.
JackRock has performed at numerous venues across the world. His sound is stylistically diverse and charged with electrifying energy that creates waves on dance floors. For the last thirteen years, JackRock has frequently teamed up with another name from the electronic scene in Bulgaria, DJ Balthazar. In 2006, they produced and released their collaborative debut record “Rockin’ Dancefloor”, which includes remixes of songs from Eric Sneo and Cave. The EP reached 1 on the Musicmail Distribution charts and made its way into the sets of renowned DJs Carl Cox, Marco Nastic,Dylan Drazen, Pedro Delgado, Marco Lenzi, and Ortin Cam. The duo has come a long way since then, currently rocking the charts under different labels such as Renesanz, Phobiq and Driving Forces
Renesanz Records has also grown as a label and booking agency, currently a trademark for Bulgarian dance culture, responsible for multiple events with over 150 international guest artists and DJs.
