After the success of “Opa Hey” the question came up how to present the pieces live for the public. Going though the dilemma whether to become a dj as his source of inspiration Amon Tobin, or to found a live band with which to perform the music, Kottarashky chose the latter. In March 2010 Nikola Gruev (sampling, programming) together with his colleague from the University Hristo Hadzhiganchev (guitar & keyboard), Alexandar Dobrev (clarinet) and Yordan Geshakov (bass) founded Kottarashky Live Band. After some time Atanas Popov (drums) joined them. The band adapted the pieces from “Opa Hey” for live performance with new arrangement and a very specific style. Its first live concert was at the festival Music Meeting in Nijmegen, The Netherlands. A month later the band played also in front of its home Bulgarian audience. There followed a number of concerts and tours in Bulgaria and abroad. Parallel to that the band worked on the arrangement of some of Kottarashky’s compositions that had been not released so far and at the end it produced the joint album “Demoni” with which the musicians appeared as Kottarashky & The Rain Dogs. The album was released on 4th May 2012 again by Asphalt Tango Records. The response by the critics was again positive. They stressed on the fact that the Kottarashky project from a pure digital project successfully crystallized into a true music band. “Demoni” reached again 3rd position in the World Music Charts Europe. Soon after the premiere of the album, Kottarashky & The Rain Dogs obtained their first professional music video to the single “Demoni”. It was created by the world renowned animator Theodore Ushev. The video won dozens of awards for short animation movie all over the world. The rest of Kottarashky’s music videos have been done by himself. There he applies the same collage approach as in his compositions. The album release was followed by guest-tours in clubs and festivals in Europe and Asia, among which WOMEX and Roskilde Festival in Denmark.
