On November 24, Blender will host the Berlin icon Paul Kalkbrenner, internationally renowned for his unique talent confirmed by seven studio albums. His greatest success, what was launched among the most prized electronic music names, is a soundtrack for the film Berlin Calling, which has stirred up the minds of the ravers worldwide. At this year’s EXIT Festival, which was in the same time his first appearance in front of the local audience, Paul turned the crowd on the Dance Arena upside down.
A day later, on Saturday, November 25th, debut in front of the Belgrade audience will be given by Stephan Bodzin, a long-awaited name when it comes to musicians who present techno. Before joining electronic music, this artist composed for prestigious European theaters. His production can be described as a fusion of hypnotic music with very real yet unforgettable tunes.
On the second weekend of December, Belgrade is expecting slightly lighter electronic music tones.
