Zadig (Construct Re-Form / Tresor, Paris)
The founder of Construct Re-Form, which is the home of Drugstore resident DJ, Antigone, Voiski and Birth of Frequency is coming back to Drugstore after his NYE 2018 debut in the belly of the whale. This time he will perform in the garden alongside a trio of some of the strongest local technoheads. Zadig’s oldschool sets are potent, body and dancecentric, and stand out with great ease even on the oversaturated techno scene of today. Zadig started his career in the 90s and was engaged on the Hardcore and Acid scene before switching to Techno. A chance meeting in the music store he used to work at introduced him to a sound engineer by the name of Matheu Berthet which led to a friendship that provoked Zadig to get back into production and create his home studio. The rest is history. Last year, he released a split with Asymptote on Suburban Avenue.
LINE UP: Zadig (Construct Re-Form / Tresor, Paris), Speedy, Sugar Lobby and Nemanja Godjevac

No Borders Orchestra B Matinée: Belgrade
No Borders Orchestra is on the road again! Building on a successful tour of the Balkans during summer 2018 the No Borders Orchestra string ensemble, accompanied by percussions and electronica, follow up in summer 2019 with another international tour around the Western Balkans and Europe called “B Matinee”.
This project, whose name suggests new beginnings, brings together contemporary classical music and clubbing culture, and features cutting-edge new compositions by five exciting young composers from the Balkan region. These new, contemporary, experimental compositions are inspired by Berghain, the famous Berlin club. The 2019 B Matinee tour also commemorates thirty years of the Fall of the Berlin Wall and celebrates the tearing down of walls between classical and clubbing music. By communicating with contemporary techno sound, our composers cross genres, surmounting the borders between different styles of music. The result is a new and fresh sound that has no limits.
