Representing a wide spectrum of events on the national electronic
and club music scene, the Belgrade Coffee Shop series enters its
fourth year of existence with its fourth album release. The newest
release is maybe the most varied in terms of genres, containing
11 tracks totaling an hour of music that shows a definite advance
in creativity and production by our artists.
You find tracks from J.U.S.T. and Modern Quartet from their recently
released debut albums that are highlighted here which have been,
perhaps unjustly, forced into the shadows by their radio singles.
The humorous and original sounding duet of Shazalakazoo, supported
on this release by the voice of Sonja Loncar, with the three-minute
long hit „Pheromones,“ subtly announce their eventual domination
of sounds that crossover between electronic and other forms of music,
while newcomers Ivy & Toxic and Donga demonstrate noteworthy
inventiveness and talent. Proof that international trends are slowly
becoming the standard in our part of the world, will be given by
several young producers such as Dejan Milicevic, MKDSL and Marko
Hollywood, who have garnered strong reputations as DJs outside of
the country. With the remix of "Searchin’" which can be
found exclusively on this release, Mistake Mistake elegantly cross
the lines between pop and r'n'b, making it the ultimate summertime
radio hit. While at the same time building an international career
and solidifying their local status as a club attraction, they can
be found promoting their debut album "Hipelectroragga2hopreggaestep,"
released by Multimedia Records.
Riding the wave of success from the Stereo Freeze 12" sampler
which found its way in 2003 onto the playlists and setlists of international
DJ stars like Laurent Garniera, John Digweed and Didier Sinclair,
Nylon Room continue on their path initiated by the track "Bump!"
with an even more complex, deep tribal house affair entitled "Electricity,"
a track that has enough dance floor potential to find its way to
a vinyl release. A unique example of variety on this release is
the new mix of the classic track "New Day" by the Jazzva
project. The simplified and superior balearic reconstruction displays
a moment of inspiration by one of the most mature and productive
artists on the local scene, Boris Krstajic, and will be premiered
this fall on the London label, Togetherness.
Belgrade Coffee Shop has had an important role thus far locally,
initiating new artists and inspiring already established ones, and
internationally, presenting the local scene by way of a licensed
release, foreign distribution and rotation on radio stations such
as FG in Paris, Jazz FM in London, Multikulti in Berlin, FM4 in
Vienna, etc. The period ahead of us, which will probably be spent
selecting material for the fifth release of this series, will show
whether or not this is just another artifact of the local club scene,
or, in fact, something much greater than that.
