“James is a technical Jedi and pushes the boundaries of DJing to its absolute limit every time he plays” are well chosen words by Rik Parkinson, product planning specialist of Pioneer DJ Europe. James Zabiela’s talent, indeed, is unquestionable. DJ and producer from UK achieved a huge success in previous years, holding residency at Space Ibiza’s We Love… parties for 12 years. Although younger than his equally regarded peers, James gained respect for his unrivalled mixing skills at his live performances. He also started a record label Born Electric, which signed music from the likes of Hot Chip and Midland.
James’ set at Lovefest was taking a place on a special night. The crew of Lovefest and the crowd surprised James for his birthday with a cake and some birthday singing. This moment definitely set the good mood for the rest of the set. As James was laying a banger after another, he kept on delivering his positive energy with a big smile on his face and ceaseless dancing. His presence was infectious and the crowd could only respond the same way, with lots of smiley faces and dancing. Closing with Sasha Carassi’s “The Hard Parade” wrapped up the evening perfectly.

Detroit native, Blake Baxter, is often associated with the first wave of Detroit techno scene. Starting to mix music in the early 80s, Blake first signed with Chicago’s label International DJ although his releases were not representing the classical idea of Chicago house sound. His combination of industrial sounds and acid house, probably worked better with Kevin Saunderson’s KMS label. Until this day, Blake has been producing music and touring for over 20 years, and does not seem to stop soon!
At Lovefest, Blake brought his finest selection of techno and tech house tracks which the crowd joyfully embraced. The Fire Stage was on fire as Blake Baxter laid down energizing set filled with powerful basslines and pulsing chords. On this occasion, Blake definitely catered a taste of delicious Detroit techno to the keen dancers in Vrnjacka Banja.
