• Sweet Talks with Slatkaristika

    12 February 2015

    text Evelina Ivanova

    People in Skopije know him from all neighbourhoods. And they often quote him. Bum-bam, Dimi Dzham, Da Poletam are sung in Sofia after the first concert of Marko Marinkovic a.k.a. Slatkaristika last year. In his hip-hop, it is that way - the truth is on fire with the censorship and the plots are well connected with life. Days before his second concert in Sofia, we ask him is it sweet to be the first one in the Macedonian hip-hop (and what it is to wake up near Miss Macedonia).

    His musical trajectory is a circle: guitar - decks - guitar. The British guy Fink (or Fin Greenall as in passport) has passed through the techno to take out an awesome mix of indie rock, blues, dub and folk.

    If someone haven't seen Fake Fruits, probably he is out of the web. Which is unbelievable. Jeremy? has already caught our attention by their live shows but they put the exclamation mark with this song. It is terrible to say that "it cannot be Bulgarian" but we do. They are the band that everyone is all ears about.

    To know the teacher, we asked the students. A week before the charity concert for the 80th anniversary of Rayna Kabaivanska, we got in touch with some of the best voices in her class who we will listen on 18 December.

    She is a believer in happy ends but she is not into that talk about the moon and the stars. She can dance with torches but she ain't an early bird. She's studying sound design and she knows all of Upsurt's songs by heart. So naturally the hip-hoppers are now also humming to the tune of Kato na san (Just Like in a Dream). The song was released just a few days ago and Maria Dragneva herself is only 22. This is her first solo project and the video, we must admit, is simply hypnotic.

    He listens to k-pop for only two weeks, but for years selects music is part of the nightlife of the city. In daylight he makes illustrations, paintings, interior design and even wallpapers if someone ordered. Yasen Zgurovski is Bulgarian artist with Russian passport who is recently busy with anything and anywhere. Raised with free lessons for life from old Plovdiv Bohemia, he was the colorful child of our possible pop culture.

    Bold curls, pearls, bright lipstick and flirty dresses in all colors of the rainbow! Sounds like a prop from an old movie, but actually it is recognizable traditional dress code of the funniest in our community - that of swing fans. You've probably seen these men and women at retro parties or other special events, wondering how they always manage to look so casual but always chic. The answer is in the music, and it is the language of the soul, according to Yavor and Sonya - two of the most popular swing dancers in the country, which are also part of the team Lindyhop.bg, one of the few specialist dance schools in Bulgaria. Here's what else they shared one devoid of formality, but curious afternoon conversation.

    The Offspring and their six times platinum Smash were a real event for its time so with unconcealed excitement we expect 6 July, when the band will play the entire album live as a headliner at this year's Sofia Rocks (Academic Stadium). We had only 10 minutes to speak with guitarist Kevin John Wasserman (aka Noodles) for a thing or two before the show here, but they were enough to point the important things - punk rock, beer and funny nicknames.
