DJ Mix #405 Lady Dee

Lady Dee is the name behind Dijana Knezevic. She started DJing in 2009. From there on, she started playing in ex-YU countries. “You start performing this art form when you start feeling that music moves you and that you feel obligated to pass that feeling on to others” – says Dee.
She started working with classic house melodies, and in a later career she started flirting with tech-house sounds.
Her DJ sets were enjoyed by crowds in biggest and most renowned Belgrade clubs such as The Tube, Mladost, Lasta and others. She also played in various festivals including Enter Festival in Croatia, Love Fest in Vrnjacka Banja, Serbia and, of course, Europe’s best festival, EXIT.

DJ Mix #404 Nachtamt

It’s all about versatility and mood for dutch DJ and producer Nachtamt.
Genre comes second place to the desires of bringing ideas into actuality and his contrast of electronic styles affirms this. The music is one aspect, sound the other. Both are equally important in the creative process. His tracks are sometimes intended to portray an opinion or some dissatisfaction at the world. However, Nachtamt more often lets his ideas flow from an ambiguous creative torrent, giving the listener freedom to interpret his crafted palette of sounds and their use to conjure their own aural impressions in the mind.
