Stanislav Tolkachev (UA), Filip Xavi, Thinker@ DRUGSTORE
Party will happen on the 10th of December at the Drugstore club, Belgrade.
STANISLAV TOLKACHEV [hybrid set]
(Token, Mord, Semantica) UAFILIP XAVI
Often dubbed as ‘the Ukrainian techno maestro’, Stanislav Tolkachev is an inarguable global pioneer of techno. Influenced both by the classic sound of Detroit and the minimalistic style born in Berlin, his music is an ultimate artistic output of continuous exploration and
experimentation with psychedelic as well as atonal textures and sounds – tough, twisted yet dazzling. His live and DJ sets bridge the gap between shape-shifting experimentalism, sunken abstraction, and clever mixtures of gridlocked rhythms, verbed-out melodies, and faux-organic envelopes. Through his music, Tolkachev ultimately demonstrates the unlimited breadth and scope of his talent for sculpting pared-down techno statements that transcend both space and time, mood and atmosphere, trends and patterns. Tolkachev’s music has been released on many scene-shaping labels including Semantica, Token, MORD, and Subsist.

Kata Mijatović: No Awakening @ Legacy Colakovic
Time:12.11.2021. – 20.01.2022
Location: Gallery-Legacy of Milica Zorić & Rodoljub Čolaković
Rodoljuba Čolakovića 2
The foundation for Kata Mijatović’s exhibition No Waking Up lies in the many years the author has spent exploring the phenomena of dreams and dreaming – more precisely, thematizing and researching the relationship between our rational self, which shapes all spheres of human action and life and, on the other hand, the large and unexplored area of the unconscious that redefines the constructed images of our reality.
