SUBA STAGE ON EXIT: AV SHOW BOEMKLATSCH RECORDS, THE TASTE OF THE RUSSIAN UNDERGROUND AND THE VERY BEST OF KC GRAD
aaamusic | On 02, Jun 2012
This year, Suba Stage is all about mutual cooperation and connection, the same thing that a great musician from Novi Sad, Mitar Subotić Suba, had done for his home town and Brazil! Together with Dutch Magazine, DJ Broadcast, we are bringing you the ultimate dance label on a nice Exit Friday – BOEMKLATSCH RECORDS, who will introduce themselves with the fantastic Equalizer show! The basis of this unique spectacle are sixteen 3-metre tall projection pillars, video-mapping the entire experience of the performing crew: Bart B More, Mike Mago, NAT 89, TWR72, Rip Tide, Pretty Young Trouble, Boemklatsch and Baskerville. Suba Friday will be one of the wildest parties of the forthcoming Exit!
Teaming up with the Russian Internet portal www.lookatme.ru, Exit presents the sound of the Russian underground on Saturday! First, we are welcoming Trud – the best new Russian indie forces. Following them are Elektra Monsterz, St. Petersburg’s new garage attraction. You have probably never witnessed rocking so hard and healthy, especially coming from Russia! Stoned Boys is one of the most interesting acts on the rich new Russian scene. These youngsters combine multiple electronic influences to create a completely new genre, tagged by one reviewer as cosmo-dance. Ishome is a young producer and DJ from Krasnodar, unlimited when it comes to genres! Her performance is surely a treat to those interested in a serious performance who do not tolerate exclusions and boundaries. Mark Schedrin and Leonid Lipelis are the sophisticated members of the group, from the mid-generation of Russian DJs. This is going to be one classy party!
Suba Stage is opened on Thursday by the best new Hungarian band – Volkova Sisters. This brilliant alternative act which combines dark and etheric 80’s with modern production hints is soon moving to London, so this might be the last time you see them before they get famous! A must for all those who love female vocals! The same night, we are witnessing the performance by the hottest Spanish electro attraction – The Zombie Kids! The performance of Madrid’s alter-partying kings will be complete with a special lo-fi lightshow made exclusively for them by the young Spanish artist Carlos Saez. Also on Thursday, we will get the chance to get introduced to Belgrade’s KC Grad’s club night programme. Idemo na Mars is a theme night featuring domestic electronic music. It is also a popular radio show on Radio B92, promoting the hottest domestic electronic releases. Alongside Idemo na Mars, Suba will also host Banda Panda, a group of young people who have been organizing thematic parties in KC Grad for the past two years, which not only feature interesting musical line-up, but also interesting artistic performances.
On Sunday, we are welcoming club night performers from KC Grad, It’s A Dubstep Thing. The same night, we will get the chance to see The Middle Beast, a fresh act by the best Middle-Eastern DJ – Jade. Jade has decided to stick his fingers into various genres to create a mixture – with oriental influences and the modern most electronic music. He will also be joined by his favourite VJ, who goes by the name TM. Playground Syndicate was selected to close this year’s Suba Stage. Playground Syndicate’s appearance is a result of the fresh Exit-Bestival twinning. Noah ‘Rhythmtree’ Priddle, Neil ‘Beavz’ Beaver and Tim ‘AV Circus’ Martin were discovered last year at a DJ competition organized by Bestival, after which they opened the famous Bollywood Stage at the festival. Bestival is sending this act to our Suba Stage, as a greeting to Exit. Playground Syndicate are promising to throw a great party with all genres mixed in the cooking pot together!
Special guests of this year’s Suba Stage are Kulturni Centar Grad. KC Grad have existed for three years, working on promoting alternative, modern and underground culture in Belgrade. They have been organizing expositions, workshops, debates, concerts, conferences, book nights and many other cultural events. Besides their club nights at Exit, KC Grad will also have an interactive video installation on Suba Stage, in association with the organization Kišobran (English: Umbrella) during all four days of the festival, which is a result of Kišobran’s VJ workshop under the name “Vizuelno igralište” (English: Visual Playground).
KC Grad will also be organizing the opening of Suba Stage – projection of Gold Along the Banks, a documentary by Nikola Zečević dealing with Belgrade’s creative scene. For this special occasion, Suba Stage will be decorated with light installations by Aleksandra Stratimirović.
