INDEPENDENT MUSIC & ART FESTIVAL

Come and meet the avalanche of good music and good spirit

Belgrade, 11th to 13th of October 2018

INDIREKT

Showcase Belgrade 2018

Festival in Belgrade



Indirekt is an independant music and art festival with two hometowns - Umag/Croatia in June and Belgrade/Serbia in October. This year Indirekt Showcase Belgrade happens for the forth time in Belgrade, in four venues, with 22 stunning performers and numerous brillliant lecturers and discussion panel participants from Serbia, Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria, Sweden, Holland, Belgium, Poland, Italy, Austria and Hungary.

A decision was made by the headman of the Ammonite Records and Phonofile Balkan, Dejan Bošković, to go showcase. The region of former Yugoslavia still lacks showcase festivals - except for Slovenia's MENT, Macedonian PIN conference and Serbia has practically no festival of this kind. The local scenes in former Yugoslavia are thriving and they yearn for better mutual communication and better connection with the rest of the European music market. Indirekt Showcase is therefore a new platform for boosting music scene, a new showcase festival in Balkans.

Feel yourself welcome to the Europe's party capital - Belgrade! Come and meet the avalanche of good music and good spirit! Go Indirekt!

KILLEDBYCAR

Killedbycar is an electronic-indie rock trio with punk-rock past. The band’s sound is based on energetic, melodious guitars and rhythmic synthesizers.

In this year’s “Samsara”, however, we see a new side of Lucia – the mature, self-assured artist who brings together a crew of musicians and producers to complete her vision of a concept album about death and rebirth. The music on “Samsara” is diverse, with lots of piano and strings but also a touch of electronica; you can hear echoes of established acts such as Regina Spektor or Aurora. In this album we can se Lucia’s experimental side, but also melancholic and powerful one.

The Black Room

THE BLACK ROOM

The Black Room is a rock band from Rijeka, Croatia. Their debut album “In This Town Lies a City” was very well received not only by the audience, but also by the critique which called them one of the new quality bands coming out of the Rijeka rock scene. The Black Room proved their quality with next EP “After Dark” which was released last year. They rely on the darker character of the blues rock and garage rock bands and neopsychedelia of the 80's and 90's. The texts are inspired by personal stories with protagonists from the city living in the atmosphere of rock, poetry and nightlife, and research, personal freedom and social status are just some of the themes The Black Room translates into music. With the influences of garage and noise rock they can be put somewhere between Queens Of The Stone Age, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club and The Jesus And Mary Chain.

THE SIIDS

Members of The Siids decided to reflect on their former musical work by travelling to Australia.
Exploration of that vast and distant country gave them completely different insight into the music they were listening and playing so far, provoking them to start drafting the shapes of inspiration emerged throughout every step of the journey.

Once back in Croatia, Darko and Stanislav headed straight to studio, ending up with ten new pieces for their forthcoming album. The genre in which The Siids are is somewhere in the range of indie and electro pop/rock, influenced by the music of Editors, Phantogram, Twin Shadow, The Kills, EL VY, The Presets, M83, Depeche Mode and others.

Vin Triste

Ako Ikad

Vin Triste

Vin Triste is a minimalistic alternative rock band formed in 2016. Their sound is this: dynamic rhytm section and melancholic melodies are united with female energy and emotional lyrics.

Even though the band exists only a little bit longer than one year, they already had a few very important concerts – festival “Mostovi i Raskršća” in Belgrade and Novi Sad, Mozaik festival in Salzburg, they were guests at the concert of one of the most famous alternative band in the region Repetitor... and after that they played at Demofest in Banjaluka where they won the second place.

VISIONS IN CLOUDS

The songs of Visions in Clouds [VIC] are anthems of a faceless generation. The Lucerne, Switzerland quartet’s fusion of post-punk and ‘80s new wave embodies a search for clarity with which anyone can identify. Meandering guitar riffs and contemplative lyrics are prominent elements in each VIC soundscape, and their somber stage presence only adds to their mystique. Identity and isolation are recurring themes in VIC’s music. Their songs resonate not only with the disenfranchised youth of today, but anyone who has longed for meaning. From the distance in their concepts, you can sense a shapeless truth that is somehow more substantial for being so serenely veiled. After the success of their 2016 debut album “Masquerade”, the band have fine tuned their style to deliver a vibrant new EP titled “levée en masse”.


VIRVEL

Virvel is a shoegaze/lo-fi/indie-rock band from Belgrade, Serbia. Not being afraid to search through the sound and through their own emotions, the members of the band create an authentic sensibility which they all instinctively reached the moment they got together. Experimentation with almost every musical genre makes the concerts of Virvel an exceptional experience. The sound of this band, usually described by critics as postrock or shoegaze, actually represents the creation of atmosphere of other possibilities by using the basic rock tools. Believing in the alternative reality, members of the band principally avoid the media. They release their albums in their own record label, choosing by themselves the people to collaborate with and the way to do it.

PASSED

PASSED is the No. 1 electronic harp music band in Hungary, and with this unique title, probably in the whole world. You can catch them regularly on the national TV and radio with their unique pop ballads, that will make you really emotional and dancing airily at the same time. Passed’s objective is to introduce more and more people to the beautiful sounds of the harp, while packaging it into a modern world of sounds. The band’s core message is to help people realise they are not alone with their problems, and there are always multiple ways of making one's life better. They are unsigned, independent artists, writing and producing music, directing and shooting music videos on their own.

U Soul Society klubu će mu se pridružiti na gitari dugogodišnji saradnik Vedran Ivković, originalni član kultnog karlovačkog sastava Wanderlust.

He began his career as a journalist at TV Metropolis, but when he got bored, he started working in a marketing agency Buzz Advertising (now known as Havas) and then in Trupmet. Finally, he came to senses in 2013 when he began working at JTI company, at Winston brand department and later on as a DTC associate for all brands. At JTI he succeeds to combine his love to music with realistic business goals through the creation of proxy platforms. He is currently employed at Coca-Cola as a WOAH manager.


SEVDAHBABY SOLO (DJ SET)

SELF RELEASE OR WITH A RECORD LABEL? - 15:30, Friday, october 12th

Danas, kao i pre deset godina, SevdahBABY je jedan čovek. On se zove Milan Stanković i on najviše uživa kada u svojim pesmama meša različite muzičke kulture. Ne boji se optužbi za jeres ni od jedne vrste publike: recimo ni od strane ljubitelja mainstream ili balkanske folk muzike sa jedne i predstavnika urbane, klupske kulture na drugoj strani. On snažno veruje da je muzika univerzalna, da je balkanski sevdah isto što i američki blues, ili brazilska tristessa. Osim kao producent, SevdahBABY je aktivan i kao DJ. Počev od 2007. godine imao je brojne nastupe širom bivše Jugoslavije, kao i u zemljama u okruženju. Njegovi DJ setovi odišu eklektikom, ali ta raznovrsnost stilova uvek je u svojoj dubokoj osnovi podržana pokretljivim funky ritmovima i snažnim elektronskim sint linijama.

Rokenrol u kandžama interneta

Koncept kao i teme postavljene u knjizi „Rokenrol u kandžama interneta“, naišle su na snažan odjek i reakciju javnosti, koja je prepoznala aktuelnost i značaj tumačenja i odnosa novog načina promocije putem onlajn varijanti, od strane aktera ovdašnje (rock) muzičke priče. „Rokenrol u kandžama interneta 2“ nastavlja tamo gde se stalo sa prvom knjigom tačno godinu dana nakon njenog izlaska, ali zaokružuje i završava postavljeni i ponuđeni koncept, u kojem su učestvovali predstavnici muzičke scene u Srbiji i, jednim manjim delom, u dijaspori.

Predrag Jovanović rođen je 29.09.1963. godine u Beogradu. Jedan je od pionira beogradske rhythm and blues scene, a sa grupom Ana Marija objavio je tri albuma. Ipak, životni put ga je odveo na drugu stranu. Diplomirao je informatiku, a od 1991. godine s lakoćom razbija strah polaznika od korišćenja računara. Objavio je 30 knjiga iz oblasti računara. Kao što to obično biva, sledi povratak korenima. Svoje znanje iz oblasti muzike i računara želeo je da spoji i pokaže kako u današnje vreme u muzici postoji neophodnost korišćenja modernih tehnologija. Zajedno sa Vladanom Nenadićem tvorac je emisije „Druga strana računara”, koja se emituje na „Radio Beogradu” od 2013. godine i koja je na jedan sjajan način pokazala kako Rock’n’Roll danas mora Računati na Računare. Prava formula je: „R'n'R = R'n'R”. Sa Branimirom Loknerom i Wood RS-om objavio je knjigu „Rokenrol u kandžama interneta” kao i „Rokenrol u kandžama interneta 2” 2017 godine.

Radio na „Beogradu 202”, „Radio Pingvinu”, „Radio Politici”, na „Trećem kanalu RTS”-a, „NS Plusu”, „TV Politici”. Bio je urednik izdanja u izdavačkoj kući „IT MM” tokom 90-ih godina, a u periodu od 2006. do 2009. godine urednik edicije „Retrologija” u izdanju „PGP RTS”-a. Dve godine bio je predsednik žirija „Banjalučkog Demofesta” i dugi niz godina predsednik žirija „Zaječarske gitarijade”. Jedan je od osnivača i predsednik žirija „Belgrade Demo Festa”.
