DJ Pepo was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria in 1976. He developed a strong interest for music at a very early age. His music training began with guitar and accordion lesson. Not long after, the accordion and the guitar were replaced by the home turntable which he found much more appealing.
He started playng at the age of 16 at local clubs and bars attempting to make a career out of his hobby. After gaining experience as a DJ, along with his friends DJ Pacho and DJ Erik, they create Ellectrica (ellectrica.com). Under that name, they organize parties that were devoted to the culture of house music, which was not very popular in Bulgaria at the time.

In the summer of 2006 DJ Pepo receives the opportunity to be a resident in Club Mania in Sunny Beach, which is one of the most popular places where DJs get a chance to demonstrate their mixing skills. DJ Pepo’s ability to choose and mix music makes him one of the most desired DJs.
