One of the best Croatian singer-songwriters and a sharp social chronicler Saša Antić as Alejuandro Buendija recently presented his new solo album Škrinja to the public. On the album, social issues are themed through top-notch lyrics and a lot of black humor, and these are songs that were created in the last five years. Album Škrinja was finalized during the pandemic quarantine. Alejuandro Buendija will perform at the Magic Box accompanied by his band Sinovi.
Petar Dundov is a synonym for world-renowned and respected techno. He is certainly the most famous Croatian DJ and a great producer who, among his talents, musical experience and discography, is one of the strongest domestic authors and is a first-class music export product. He has a large number of singles, albums and performances at festivals and clubs around the world. The current single Salvation / Nature of Nature released for Proton Music is also his first solo release for that label, on which he has released several great remixes so far.
Chui is a critically praised and awarded space jazz rock band from Zagreb. Strongly inspired by old sci-fi movies, TV and comic book culture, they create unique music, firmly rooted in jazz, but boldly flirting with other genres as well. Synthwave of the 80s, Canterbury prog rock, numerous styles of electronic music ranging from techno to UK garage, Dillini hip hop beats, even jazzcore - all this can be found in Chui's songbook.
Brain Holidays are pioneers of reggae music in Croatia, and were founded back in 2000. In 20 years of work, they have hundreds of concerts, five studio albums released by Dallas Records: Stereo Roots, Save Peace Babylon Delete, System Error, System Error Remix Side and Jamaican Connection. In early 2020, they also held a concert in Kingston, Jamaica. The warmth of Jamaica’s Caribbean rhythms, Brain Holidays best represents at live performances where their magic comes to full expression.
Authentic, direct and radiant. Aklea Neon, a Osijek singer-songwriter and traveling musician, channels her afro-soul, ethno-beats harmonies with her whole body - her foot on a pedal looper, her hand on a guitar and a MIDI controller with a voice that resonates to the scalp. Magnetic presences - her performance passes in a flash, and they remain in her hips for days.
Dimitrije Dimitrijević (Dimitrije Simović), a musician from Niš with an address in Zagreb, bassist and singer of the band Igralom, recently released his songwriting debut album Čar-pitanje.
