Klaus are the bright new hope of Rijeka’s alternativeunderground scene. Their variation on electro-noisepunk- new wave, drawing on the legacy of pioneers such as Einstürzende Neubauten, Big Black, and the early PJ Harvey, is breaking ground for the new generation of Croatian bands. Their expression does not hide behind clichés, but delivers an energetic full-frontal attack, felt full blast during live performances. The raw sound of bass, guitar, percussions, and electronic samples leaves a deep and permanent mark on the audience. Uncompromising, edgy, almost rebellious lyrics sarcastically digest the anxiety driven individual of our not exactly friendly world. Despite the low-fi production and muddy sound, the musical articulation of Klaus is sincere and penetrating.

Klaus is the project of bass player and singer Nora. She started recording as a ‘one-woman band’ two years ago, and only after one year did Klaus also become a live act, performing on stage as a trio while studio recordings are made by Nora alone. Since their debut concerts in April 2007, they have won high praise both at home and abroad. They have staged several concerts at festivals and venues such as RiRock (Rijeka), Exit (Novi Sad), Viva la Pola (Pula), and the PitchWise festival (Sarajevo), and at the clubs Kset (Zagreb) and Discordia (Rijeka).

Nora: bass guitar, vocals, synthesizer, electronics
Bexx: guitar
Goran: drums


DJane Timika (Subotica) Piano, solo singing, the dance-funk-soul madness of the 80’s, Madchester, psychedelia, electropop… This is how the then Timea Szalas started “relishing” music. Diversity and a vast musical span helped in establishing Timika as one of the best DJanes within ex-Yugoslavia. Prepare yourselves for the dance extremes within the genres of minimal house/techno, electro house, and electropop. DJane Timika, well known to Slovenian audiences, will once again have the opportunity to convince us that music and dancing are the essence of us all.

DJane e.llem (Sarajevo) a.k.a. the Queen of Noise, is Ilvana Dizdarević, photographer and political science student. Ilvana is the sort of DJ who stays on the dance floor after she is through with her set, supporting, following, and attentively listening to her colleagues. It is best if DJane e.llem performs last, since her musical repertoire is sharp, robust, and so full of unyielding nuclear energy that the party simply never ends.
